SINGAPORE NOODLES

My boyfriend absolutely loves Singapore noodles whenever we order a Chinese takeaway you can guarantee he will choose it!

The only problem was that I could never eat it and when I did try it once I really suffered the next day with crippling stomach pain and bloating.

Of course, this was most certainly due to the onions and garlic of which are two of my biggest FODMAP triggers but at the time I didn’t realise that and put it down to cross-contamination of gluten, it may have even been a combination of both.
