As a mom who has found relief with the FODMAP diet after years of discomfort and guesswork, cooking for my whole family had become a bit of a challenge. Thankfully, this cookbook has come to my rescue. It offers family-friendly and easy to prepare recipes that even my pickiest eater enjoys, and that is no small achievement. Now we’re all happy!

This empowering book is a gift for IBS sufferers like me and for our loved ones who want to cook us meals we can enjoy together. I trust Patsy Catsos for accurate and easy-to-understand information about eating for IBS. I appreciate Lisa’s compassion for families struggling to accommodate special diets; I am grateful for Karen’s willingness to share her thirty-four years of experience working with children and families. This trio has blended their personal and professional expertise into an outstanding resource that belongs in your library next to Patsy’s IBS—Free at Last!, which has become my gut health bible.
