Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancake Casserole, in collaboration with Driscoll’s.

No, these are not low FODMAP but I have a lot of things that need to be eaten before I can go that route.

If you follow my stories (if you don’t there’s a lotta Poppy on there) then you saw that yesterday I went to the doctor to finally ask questions that I’ve been needing to ask for six years. Six years ago I started experiencing painful stomach bloat after most meals, stopped having my period, and a list of other things. I’ve put this appointment off for so long because before being pregnant I didn’t have health insurance that would cover any possible blood work or even a visit. Yesterday was successful in scheduling blood work to check for IBS, PCOS, and a few other things like my liver. I don’t have answers yet but I’m a step closer and that’s really important! A low FODMAP diet trial is to be started right after I finish this lemon ricotta blueberry pancake casserole made with @driscollsberry organic blueberries. Fun fact: blueberries are Driscoll’s berry of the month and good thing because Poppy is obsessed!
