Fructose Intolerance Snack Ideas
fructose intolerane snack
ideas is challenging!
A diagnosis of fructose intolerance or fructose malabsorption disorder can be frightening; especially during meals and snacks.
I am a list-maker by nature, and I quickly saw how keeping a running list of “friendly” foods could help our family. The list could be sent anywhere it was needed.
I like having a list of favorite foods to look at when planning my week. I can sprinkle in a few new and different things each week along with the favorites. It keeps squawking to a minimum. Also, those favorites have already been screened through the no-can-do list.
Lastly, there are occasionally some foods that meet all of the requirements that still cause a problem. I want to keep a list of those so I do not replicate the experience.
A word of warning: What may work for one person may not work for another. The lists have been generated by many people, and you will want to try each one individually to see how it works for you.
Read on below the invitation for some great ideas!
