For the longest time I have been troubled with an over sensitive stomach. The pain, bloating, and irregular bowel movements that come with IBS (irritable Bowel Syndrome) were controlling my life. It took me several years and doctors appointments to pinpoint the causes of my rumbling tummy. Once I found out what areas of the low FODMAP diet were causing my stomach issues, I learned how to change my diet in order to live a more comfortable life.
Thank goodness I had no plans the day I decided to go grocery shopping for dairy, gluten, and fructose free groceries. After spending what felt like hours reading every ingredient on countless products in the grocery store I managed to check out with a cart full of groceries.
Over time I have managed to cut my shopping, searching, and reading time in half by adding these 10 amazing dairy, gluten, and fructose free products to my shopping list.
- Daiya deliciously dairy-free shredded cheese
Daiya Foods are free of seven major food allergens including dairy, gluten and soy. Daiya shredded cheese melts perfectly for cooking gluten free mac and cheese, lasagna, and pizza. I recommend trying Daiya’s other products such as their cream cheese and Greek yogurt.
You can find Daiya deliciously dairy-free products at Target and daiyafoods.com
- Honey Nut Chex
Perfectly sweet, gluten and fructose free cereal that is just as good dry as it is with dairy free milk.
- GoGo Squeez Organic Apple Sauce
Although these handy on the go drinkable applesauce’s look more suitable for a toddler than an adult, I personally love the simple ingredients and the convenient no spoon needed package.
- Horizon Organic 100% Lactose Free Milk
When it comes to lactose free milk, the grocery store usually has several options including soymilk, almond milk, and coconut milk. All of these are great options for cereal and smoothies but my favorite lactose free milk for cooking and drinking is Horizon Organic 100% Lactose Free Milk.
