Zucchetti and Meatball Soup: A creamy tomato soup loaded with meatballs and "zucchetti" noodles, and topped with fresh basil. You'll never look at spaghetti and meatballs the same way again.

Home Sweet Homestead: Zucchetti and Meatball Soup

Spaghetti and meatballs with a twist... I turned it into a soup! And not just any old soup either, Creamy tomato soup is transformed into something special with the addition of tender turkey meatballs, and zucchetti (spiralized zucchini noodles). Remember enjoying spaghetti and meatballs as a child? Well now you can get that same comforting feeling, with this grown-up version.

Home Sweet Homestead: Pork Lo Mein with Zoodles

My doctor put me on a low-FODMAP diet about a month ago for health issues, and it seems to be working very well. At first I thought it was pretty restrictive, but once I started experimenting with recipes, I discovered you can still make most of your favorites, you just have to be a little creative with the ingredients!

Like this Pork Lo Mein with Zoodles. Asian style stir-fries are one of my favorite type of meals. They're quick, easy, and loaded with good for you vegetables.



What is the FODMAP Diet?

Figuring out what you can and can not eat when you first start the FODMAP diet can be overwhelming. I hope my experiences can help you with your journey.

Home Sweet Homestead: What is the FODMAP diet?

To be honest I wasn't thrilled when my doctor put me on the FODMAP diet recently, to try and get my IBS, lupus, food allergies and sensitivities, as well as my as yet, un-diagnosed severe swelling of my feet and legs under control. I didn't really know anything about the diet, but had heard several people talk about it, and the reviews weren't good. Restrictive, bland and boring are just a few words I heard used to describe it.

What in the world are FODMAPS?
