Around the world in 80 low FODMAP dishes

That’s right you read it correctly. Two dietitians are going on a trip around the world. Yipee! It’s been a couple of years in the planning – well when I say planning I mean saving money – and come September 2015 we are off for a whole year 🙂 It’s quite unbelievable, an around the world trip is truly the most exciting thing to plan.

‘Around The World In 80 Low FODMAP Dishes’ – a collection of the best low FODMAP foods and recipes as we travel the globe

Anyway the reason for me telling you this is because we will introduce a travel section to the blog.  It will be completely FODMAP related as I am sure we will pick up loads of inspiration for creating some amazing low FODMAP recipes from around the world. Plus we will tell you how we managed to travel and follow a low FODMAP diet.

In fact we plan to bring you ‘Around The World In 80 Low FODMAP Dishes’ – a collection of the best low FODMAP foods and recipes as we travel the globe.

We ended up planning the whole thing ourselves after getting poor service and increased costs from STA and have learnt so much that will help the budget traveller that we wanted to share this information.

‘Around The World In 80 Low FODMAP Dishes’ – a collection of the best low FODMAP foods and recipes as we travel the globe.

So where are we going I hear you ask, well…………(click on the countries for more information)

The Philippines








New Zealand





Costa Rica


and Mexico

As you can probably guess we are super excited.  Right now the two places we are looking forward to the most are Laos and Colombia.  Laos because we think it will be different to anywhere else on the trip and has an air of mystery about it still.  While Colombia because after its violent and drug past from the early 1990’s it is now a much changed place with a great music scene and a stunningly beautiful country.

Also as it has turned out the route we are taking basically visits nearly every one of the worlds largest coffee producers!  So we are basically travelling around the bean belt.  Really looking forward to visiting some coffee plantations and trying loads of different world coffees.

As we travel we will add low FODMAP travel tips we pick up in the different countries. We hope you enjoy this edition to the blog and please do get in touch with any travel tips you have for the countries we are visiting or tips in general for a budget around the world trip.

So for now take a look at some photos from our first stop Boracay island in the Philippines, and we will be back in touch soon…….

  1. I just signed up to the blog guys, can’t wait to hear about your low FODMAP journey around the world!! I just returned from a trip and was surprised at how easy it was to eat low FODMAP in Spain and Portugal, a little more challenging in Morocco! Enjoy!

    1. Hi Melissa,
      Thanks so much for joining the blog and your message. We can’t wait to get going! Yes we went to Marrakesh; couldn’t quite believe how many prunes and almonds they put in the lamb tagine!

    2. Very encouraging that it is easy to eat Low Fodmap in Portugal…I am potentially going to book a trip for my sisters birthday and have been so worried about going abroad again following my last attempt almost a year ago when I got incredibly sick.

  2. Literally just found your blog through googling for a recipe. Definitely going to keep following this! Especially interested in different world recipes as this Low Fodmap marlarky can be so frustrating and limiting!

    For travel tips – my sister runs a budget travel blog:
    She spent almost 3 years living and working in New Zealand as an Occupational Therapist and has done a lot of travelling in Asia en route home. Hope that helps!

    1. Hey Shaz, thanks so much for that your sisters blog looks super useful. Thanks for tagging along to our journey we will post loads of low FODMAP meal inspiration as we travel.

      1. Excited to read more about your travels which will hopefully build up the courage to travel again. The thought of going abroad again scares me after getting so ill the last time.

  3. Just started following you guys and just in time by the looks of it! I am massive lover of traveling and of course follow a low fodmap diet which tends to make things difficult! I can’t wait to see how you guys get along! I have also been using an app called ‘FodMapFriendly’ which might be useful for you guys! It lists a lot of products which are available worldwide and have the fodmap friendly logo on them! It could be helpful for you when looking for foods overseas 🙂 check it out, it’s been super helpful for me! Can’t wait for your next post!!!

    1. Cheers Pam we are just getting into it after 4 days of travelling to get to our first destination the beautiful island of Boracay. I have seen the app but we will mainly look at the ingredients list for products. Thanks for tagging along to our journey please feel free to suggest any more tips 🙂

  4. Hello you two, I live in Perth Western Australia, when are you visiting us? I clicked on Australia but didn’t get anywhere.

    1. Hi Mary, Thanks for getting in touch. We get to Sydney Feb 1st but will only be travelling up the East Coast for a month. Would love to stay longer and visit more but Australia is too expensive on a years travel budget unfortunately. Hopefully another time 🙂
