3 Easy Low FODMAP Recipes For Veganuary

What is Veganuary and why vegan low FODMAP recipes are important?

Veganuary is an annual vegan lifestyle challenge that encourages people to pledge to adopt a vegan diet for the month of January. The challenge aims to raise awareness around veganism and its benefits and to provide a supportive environment for individuals looking to transition to a vegan lifestyle.

Vegan FODMAP recipes are important because they are low in certain carbohydrates that can be difficult for some people to digest properly. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides And Polyols) are short chains of sugar molecules found in certain plant foods which can cause digestive symptoms such as bloating and abdominal pain in some individuals. 

While vegan diets have health benefits, they can also contain ingredients that rank highly on the FODMAP scale, if not managed correctly.

If you're already taking JUVIA, you don't need to have any restrictive diets (including low FODMAP). However, if you've not given us a go yet, this Veganuary we're sharing 3 easy low FODMAP recipes with you:
