MOROCCAN TAJINE IS BACK AT EPICURED AND BETTER THAN EVER!

Whatever your taste – chicken, lamb or veggies – our Tajine is for you!

This dish is inspired by recipes from Morocco and Northern Africa and served with a side of gluten-free quinoa.

Renee discovered this extraordinary dish on a visit to Marrakech. After feasting on chicken tajine with apricots and almonds, she savored the memory and created the ultimate low FODMAP version.

MAKE WAY FOR CHICKEN TAJINE!

This special low FODMAP dish replaces the sweet flavors of onion, honey, apricots & dates with garlic oil and sweeter veggies and low-FODMAP sugars. Our Tajine chicken is simmered with cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and paprika… all great inflammatory, pro-digestion spices to help cleanse the liver.

It’s a tasty treat!

 FODMAP FAQs WITH OUR CONCIERGE DIETITIAN

By Carena Lowenthal

A FEW QUESTIONS WE GET ALL THE TIME!

  1.  What is a FODMAP?

FODMAP’s are a group of small chain carbohydrates than can be difficult to digest for many people.  They pass from the small intestine into the large intestine undigested where they can be fermented and pull water into the intestine.  They could cause bloating, cramps, diarrhea or constipation.  FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols.

Our Low FODMAP Cheat Sheet is a great thing to keep around! Here’s a printable one and one for your phone.

  1.  I see you have garlic oil in your recipes, I thought garlic wasn’t allowed on the low-FODMAP diet?

Correct, garlic is not allowed in the solid form.  However, garlic infused oil, is allowed.  It has a lot of the flavor without the FODMAP component.

  1.  How long do I have to follow a low-FODMAP diet?

Usually people are placed on this diet for 2-6 weeks for an elimination phase.  Then they would be testing the groups, in a methodically, proven way, to help determine where the intolerances lie.  Once you find out what you need to avoid, you can go back to an appropriate diet.  Epicured is 100% low-FODMAP so you can use our service during the Elimination Phase as well as to fill in after you’ve gone back to your new plan.

INTRODUCING OUR CONCIERGE PROGRAM!

Epicured started using a new concierge program to help us connect more quickly and effectively with patients who can benefit from our low FODMAP & gluten-free meal service.

Here’s how it works:
Your practice sends us a very simple form via fax. The form is HIPAA compliant and goes directly to our team of concierge dietitians. They will follow up directly to help your patient understand the Epicured service and provide a helping hand.

What this means for you:
Well, you are a clinician, you are busy, you believe in Food as Medicine, or at least that the right foods can help you feel better. Complicated diets can be hard to comply with, but we’re here to make it simple. Not to mention, after your patients get delicious, feel-good meals from Michelin-star chefs delivered to their homes, you will be the hero!
