I was in France recently and rediscovered my love for Quiche Lorraine. It is such a simple dish, yet is off-limits when treating SIBO due to the pastry, cream and gruyere cheese. With some simple modiﬁcations, you can still enjoy this tasty treat at any time of the day or night.
There are some mornings when you want to pay homage to your past life and eat a bowl of cereal. Whilst nuts can be problematic for some, for others they can be a good way of increasing good quality fats in your diet. Due to the restrictions of the SIBO protocol, this granola is to be eaten in small portions and in moderation. Divide the mixture up once you have made it so you are not tempted to over eat it.
We love this Asian Breakfast Bowl for busy days when you don’t know what time you’ll get to eat lunch. It is very filling and will keep you satisﬁed for hours. Save time by making it the night before, so all you need to do is re-heat and eat. Double or triple the quantities and have some in the freezer, so you’re never stuck for breakfast ideas.
WHAT IS A SIBO DIET
A SIBO diet is designed to help improve or calm your SIBO symptoms by reducing the amount of fermentable carbohydrates in your diet. It also gives you a good opportunity to reconnect with your body by watching and listening to your symptoms. It’s important to note however that by its very nature, a SIBO diet should only be temporary. Most doctors recommend only a maximum of 6 months for the time spent on a SIBO diet plan.

Our Most Famous SIBO Bi Phasic Diet Recipes
Butter Chicken Curry
Butter chicken is a hugely popular Indian curry, yet normally contains onion, garlic and cream, making it unsuitable for those treating SIBO. This version packs a flavour punch and tastes just as good as the real thing, without causing any irritation. This dish will become a family favourite as it is easy to make, fills the house with a wonderful aroma and is delicious.
Low FODMAP Diet
The Low FODMAP diet restricts certain types of carbohydrates: Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols (FODMAPs). It is not designed specifically for SIBO, however it can still be used as a SIBO diet by patients experiencing mild symptoms. It is also great for vegetarians and vegans as there are plenty of food options for them.
