PEANUT SAUCE

25 years ago, I volunteered on Burmese refugee camp in Thailand for 4 months. Food was simple on the camp. The only provisions provided were poor quality rice and fish paste. My camp was fortunate because the land owner let the refugees raise pigs and chickens, and grow vegetables to supplement their diet (most camps were not so fortunate).

For those of us on special diets or simply trying to stay healthy, holiday meals can be a challenge and downright painful! Maybe your family has heard of being gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and possibly even paleo but try giving them, “gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and LOW FODMAP”. That’s me! LOW FODMAP is the recommended diet for IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I’ll explain […]
