I know I have been guilty of taking advantage of being able to eat anything I want over the years. I have a daughter who suffers from Crohn's Disease and it was through her diagnosis I was made aware of how difficult it is for people to eat just anything when they want. My daughter would often have to deal with cramps, bloating, diarrhea or gas when she ate foods that didn't agree with her body. She is not alone in her struggles with Abdominal Pain and IBS Symptoms.

Many people have turned to a gluten free diet to help with their symptoms but over the years we have learned that the improvement is due to the elimination of FODMAPs which is found in wheat and milk among other foods. My daughter has had to customize her Low-FODMAPs diet to her body but has found great success in reducing her symptoms over the years. Eating a diet of Low-FODMAPs does not feel like you are doing without. Take a look at one of the recipes from the book below these Turkey Burgers are delicious.

Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

A variation on the traditional cheeseburger, this recipe contains
a creamy filling of melted blue cheese.
Preparation time: 10 minutes 
Cooking time: 10 minutes 
Tip: The FODMAP content of celery is borderline, so be sure to use the precise weight indicated in the recipe.

• Preheat lightly oiled barbecue grill to medium (optional)
1 stalk celery (113 oz/70 g)  
1 lb lean ground turkey or chicken 
112 tsp dried oregano 
2 tsp Dijon mustard 
        Salt and freshly ground black pepper
112 oz blue cheese
8 slices gluten-free bread (about 13 oz/360 g total)           
2 tsp canola oil  
2 tsp ketchup (optional)    
2 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)  
        Tomato slices and lettuce leaves  (optional)
1. Coarsely chop the celery and put it in a bowl. Add the ground turkey, oregano, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix well using a fork, then bring the combined ingredients together with your hands to form a firm mixture.
2. Divide the mixture into 8 portions. Shape each portion into rounds and flatten each one slightly. Crumble the cheese and place a small amount in the center of 4 of the rounds. Place the remaining meat rounds on top of the cheese topped rounds. Use your hands to mold the rounds together, encasing the crumbled cheese and shaping them into burgers.
3. Grill the burgers, turning them once, for about 10 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F (74°C). (Alternatively, you may cook the burgers in a nonstick, heavy-bottomed pan, over very high heat on the stovetop.)
4. Place each burger in between 2 slices of bread. Serve with ketchup and mustard on the side, if using, adding a slice of tomato and lettuce, if desired.
