Kizik Sneakers: The Milan Shoe is a classic white sneaker that effortlessly ties together any outfit. They're easy to slip into, which is ideal for those days when bending over to put on shoes is not on the agenda - think bloated bellies and soon-to-be moms.
Gold Hoops: When you're bloated, comfort is key, and taking a moment to put on some gold hoops can elevate your look and boost your confidence. A must-have for those bloated days.
Lake Pajamas Lounge Set: When all else fails, grab your favorite lounge set. This set is buttery-soft, super loose around the tummy, and my go-to choice for days when getting off the sofa just isn't happening.
Food related products: keeping you feeling good
Fodzyme: For those of us who are FODMAP-sensitive, there specialized digestive enzymes are here to help you reclaim the joy of eating. They help digest food that would typically wreak havoc on your stomach. During the holiday season, it's a MUST when you visit Aunt Susan's house and she insists on piling her roasted garlic mashed potatoes onto your plate. I always carry some in my pocket.
Belli Welli Bars: If you're dealing with IBS, you know that some bars can exacerbate your symptoms. But Belli Welli bars are game-changers. Made with Low FODMAP ingredients and some fiber, these bars are perfect for when you're on the move and need relief from bloating.
Fody: What I consider to be the the Low FODMAP condiment experts. When you're cooking for yourself, there are plenty of Low FODMAP sauce options. I swear by their spicy marinara - it's so good you won't even miss the garlic or onion.
Take care of yourself this holiday season, feel good and have fun!
