Here is a list of books with recipes for the low-FODMAP diet and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). I have read all of these books and highly recommend purchasing them. 


If you are starting out on the Low-FODMAP Diet, get this book:

The Everything® Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbook – by Colleen Francioli, CNC: “After you try a few recipes in my book and get more acquainted with low-FODMAP foods and ingredients, your confidence in the diet will be boosted, your creative juices flowing and hopefully you too will be inspired to create your own low-FODMAP dishes!”                                                                                                                                        Along with 300 low-FODMAP and gluten-free recipes, this book also includes a basic guide on the low-FODMAP diet, as well as meal plans, snack ideas, low- and high-FODMAP lists as well as diet survival tips and additional health resources.  So many of the fans over at FODMAPLife ask for recipes on a daily basis and they will now have several to choose from with this book. Included in the book are breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes, condiments, sauces and dressings, cookies, bars, desserts, drinks as well as a chapter “from scratch” featuring recipes for low-FODMAP bread, pizza dough and more. Vegetarian, vegan as well as main dishes and snacks for children also have their own chapters.

Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, MD buy on Amazon – Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.
