Conscious nutrition can contribute to a healthy and happy life. Especially if one is struggling with bowel or stomach problems.
Experience gained through years of searching for a balanced diet with irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis, a success found in the FODMAP diet.
But even if you are allergic to certain products or do have a specific intolerance, we can provide tailor menus to your diet, so that you too can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast or evening meal without any worries!
Those who are gluten intolerant must follow a gluten-free diet. Gluten is a protein that occurs naturally in wheat (including spelled and khorasan wheat), rye and barley. Gluten is also found in products made from these grains. That is why these grains must be avoided.
You can eat the naturally gluten-free (unprocessed) foods quietly. These are: potatoes, (brown) rice, legumes, corn, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, soy, vegetables, fruit, meat, poultry, fish, crustaceans and shellfish. Eggs, dairy products, cheese, oil, butter, are also suitable for use.
FYI: If you suspect that you have celiac disease / are gluten intolerant, see a doctor first. The diagnosis can only be made if you still eat gluten.
We offer especially for guests with intestinal problems such as Crohn's disease, Colitis Ulcerosa or Irritable Bowel Syndrome the opportunity to become acquainted with the FODMAP diet.
This diet has been specially formulated by the Martini Hospital in Groningen and has already helped many people to steer their disease in the right direction. (note: it is NOT a cure, but it is a way of learning how to deal with your illness and diet)
What is the FODMAP diet:
Some types of sugars in the diet can cause complaints with IBS and other intestinal problems. With this diet, intake of these sugars is reduced. The diet is suitable for people who are very bothered by bowel complaints and who are prepared to structurally change the way they eat.
The Fodmap limited diet consists of avoiding various foods. Broadly speaking, this comes down to: no liquid dairy (but lactose-free dairy), no wheat (but spelt) and half the types of fruit and vegetables.
With the Fodmap-restricted diet you learn which foods you should avoid.
Fodmaps are found in many foods that are eaten daily. The purpose of the diet is to reduce the total amount of Fodmaps that enter the colon.
If you want to know more about the FODMAP diet, you can also contact us during your stay in the gite: through the experience with this diet you can learn what FODMAPs are, how the diet works and you get tips on how this FODMAP diet might work for you too.
Our experience is that many people find shopping difficult at the start. Fitting the diet into your life can take a lot of energy in the first time. We are happy to help you on the right track!
