Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Aside from giving cards, letters, flowers or presents, this day is the perfect time to spend precious moments with the special people in our lives and enjoy delicious food.
However, when you have SIBO, occasions like this can be frustrating. Some of us feel overwhelmed at the thought of figuring out what we're going to eat.
