After a few years of struggling with extreme boughts of violent illness with seemingly no cause, a new doctor recently told me to try the fodmap diet.
I’m about 5 weeks in and they have mostly been hell. The depression from the frustration and exhaustion that is the elimination phase are very very real.
Today I hit up google to see if by some miracle there was a jarred salsa without onion and garlic and did indeed see fody but figured it was one of those things only in the states (I’m in Winnipeg, Canada) and moved on, deciding salsa wasn’t in the cards today.
On my way home, I stopped at my local Co-Op grocery store for bell peppers, tortilla chips, and jalapeño for nachos I was going to make for dinner. I decided to look at the aisle w salsa just to see if there was anything, expecting to have to read through many an ingredient list, but instead, the moment I got to the section of the aisle my eyes saw the purple Fody jars and I’m not joking or exaggerating, I almost cried. I didn’t care how much it was - it had to come home with me.
And I don’t know how but this salsa, this no onion and no garlic salsa, is better than any salsa I have ever purchased. It’s incredible!! I am beyond thankful for this brand. You have a new customer for life - even if I ever abandon fodmap! I’m hooked!
