The Low FODMAP Vegan: It’s OK To Fail

"I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work" - Thomas Edison


One thing we are all find very difficult to acknowledge is when we don’t succeed. When we find a bump in the road that makes us fall off our wagons. It happens to me all the time, and i’m sure, it happens to you. It has been a long time since I have posted something on this blog. Why? Because I have fallen off the vegan wagon, off the Low FODMAP wagon, and off the Low FODMAP Vegan wagon so many times that sometimes I feel it’s not worth posting. You don’t come here to read that I stopped being vegan, or gave up on gluten-free baking. You come here for support, and guidance, and sometimes I feel that if I don’t have something positive to say then I shouldn’t say it.

But that’s not true – well at least I hope it’s not. You have stuck with me through my infrequent posts, my discussions about regular and irregular bodily functions – surely why not stick with me and know that it’s OK to slip. Whether it’s for one meal, one day, one week, one month, it’s OK. It happens to all of us at one point or another.

We are all different, how our bodies react to what we feed it is different. Often this is frustrating and sometimes you just throw your hands in the air and say, you know what? I’ve had it for now.

When you feel like that, just remember, you are not alone..we are all in this together.
