Hej! I’m Melanie! I am a 1/2 German, 1/2 Peruvian that grew up in California and is now living in Sweden. All of these cultures have shaped my culinary style and are highlighted in the recipes on this page. I am currently a PhD in biology, but with no medical or nutritional background. I do appreciate the scientific approach of the low FODMAP diet and here I chronicle my own experiences going through elimination and reintroductions for the first time. I hope the recipes I post here that reflect my own unique cultural background can be of some inspiration to others!
