Be Healthy, Be Happy – Rachel Pauls Foods

If you haven’t heard of “FODMAPs” you probably will soon. Based on numbers alone, low-
FODMAP foods may eclipse the multi-billion- dollar “gluten-free” category.
FODMAPs are carbohydrates that can be harder to digest for some individuals with so-called functional gastrointestinal disorders. FODMAPs stands for Fermentable, Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. FODMAPs are all poorly-digested short-chain carbohydrates that are present in a wide variety of foods, including wheat, onions, garlic, legumes, milk, honey, apples, dried fruit, some sugar substitutes and added fibers.

For those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), foods containing these poorly-digested short- chain carbohydrates (FODMAPs) may cause stomach aches, abdominal distension, gas, bloating, diarrhea and/or constipation. According the American College of Gastroenterology, IBS is one of the most common GI disorders, accounting for 40 percent of all appointments with gastroenterologists.

Some studies show that up to 75 percent of those who have IBS-like symptoms can benefit
from following a low-FODMAP diet. A low-FODMAP diet is so effective at managing IBS that it is often recommended by gastroenterologists in lieu of costly prescription medications that come with side effects.

The number of people with IBS — around 45 million in the U.S. alone— is about 15 times
greater than the estimated three million who have Celiac Disease, which requires avoidance of gluten to manage symptoms. Over the past decade, gluten-free food sales have skyrocketed – from just under one billion dollars in 2006, to a projected seven billion dollars by 2020.

Since a low-FODMAP diet is often the recommended first line of treatment for IBS, the low- FODMAP category is well poised to become even larger than the gluten-free market. While the low-FODMAP foods category has just emerged in the past few years, there are many national brands available, including Rachel Pauls Foods, with many more expected to enter the market in the near future.

There are several healthy habits you can establish to help treat your IBS symptoms. According to Rachel Pauls, M.D., founder of Rachel Pauls Low-FODMAP Food, a more holistic approach that includes lifestyle changes, behavior modification, stress reduction and natural therapies often provides the most long-lasting benefits for those with IBS.

Dr. Pauls recommends talking to your doctor about these seven healthy strategies to see if they are right for you:

  • If your doctor recommends the low-FODMAP diet, then this would likely involve
    eliminating foods that are high-FODMAP and see if your conditions improve. If so, you would then likely start adding back specific foods based on the type of FODMAP they contain, such as fermented foods or those high in fructose. This handy FODMAP food guide will help you plan GI-friendly meals and snacks.
  • Eat at regular times. Try to eat a “normalized” meal pattern, which means three meals and two snacks daily at about the same time each day.
  • Exercise regularly. Exercise helps improve mood and decrease anxiety and stress, bothof which can trigger IBS symptoms.
  • Perfect your portions. Following a low-FODMAP lifestyle is always in context of portion sizes. For foods with FODMAPs, stick to the recommended portion sizes to keep your overall daily FODMAPs to recommended levels.
  • Keep tabs on your total daily FODMAPs. FODMAPs need to be limited throughout the
    entire day, not meal by meal. If you experience a bellyache after dinner, it may be
    related to your lunch or afternoon snack, not what you ate at dinner.
  • Try some peppermint. Peppermint is a natural way to relax the muscles in your GI tract. Ask your medical advisor about the best way to incorporate peppermint to help manage your symptoms.
  • Consider a daily probiotic. Probiotics are "good" bacteria that normally live in your GI tract; some studies suggest that probiotics may help relieve IBS symptoms.

NY Premieres from Paris Opera & Ballet: “Samson et Dalila” and “Millepied/Robbins/Balanchine” at FIAF

This spring, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, and the American Friends of the Paris Opera & Ballet are thrilled to announce a new series presenting HD screenings of opera and ballet performances from the Paris Opera & Ballet for the first time in New York City.

New Yorkers will have a rare opportunity to experience the company’s outstanding productions, filmed live in HD.

Millepied/Robbins/Balanchine by the renowned Paris Opera Ballet features beloved works by two of the 20th century’s great American choreographers and the premiere of a new creation by Benjamin Millepied with music by composer Nico Muhly.

Samson et Dalila, Camille Saint-Saëns’ lushly romantic re-telling of the biblical tale, will be presented in a new production conducted by lauded Paris Opera music director Philippe Jordan and staged by Damiano Michieletto.

Benjamin Millepied pays tribute to George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, two extraordinary choreographers, both of Russian origin, who helped to redefine dance in Europe and the US in the 20th century.

In time to celebrate the Jerome Robbins centennial this year, the HD screening will feature the Paris Opera Ballet’s introduction of Robbins beloved 1979 Opus19/The Dreamer to its repertoire, which will be paired with the company’s revival of George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The centerpiece of the program is the premiere of Benjamin Millepied’s acclaimed new ballet, Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward, featuring new music by composer Nico Muhly, which was created during Millepied’s tenure as director of dance at the Paris Opera.

Camille Saint-Saëns: Samson et Dalila

Sunday, June 24 at 1pm

“From the marvelous opening of solo winds scattered across the night, one realizes that Philippe Jordan has set the bar high…masterful direction that brilliantly revives the flesh and breath of this too often forgotten music.” Le Monde

Based on the biblical tale of Samson and Delilah from the Book of Judges in the Old Testament, the opera is one of the most popular and often performed in the French repertoire. The seductress Dalila is one of the great opera roles for a mezzo-soprano and includes the well-known arias “Printemps qui commence” (“Spring begins”) and “Mon cœur s’ouvre à ta voix” (“My heart opens to your voice”).

The new, 2016 production of Samson et Dalila, staged by Damiano Michieletto, returned the work to the Paris Opera after a 25-year absence. Anita Rachvelishvili, “an exceptional mezzo-soprano of seamless quality” (Opera News) plays the femme fatale and murderous priestess, and Aleksandrs Antonenko, “who tore into Samson’s music with a genuine heroic tenor” (Opera News) is the conflicted, tragic hero.

About LaynGo

The MISSION 

Innovative organizational solutions for life, play, and travel.

The HISTORY

The company started with a simple idea…”There has to be a better way to do this.”

Lay-n-Go was originally developed to tame large toy collections with small pieces.

Amy & Adam Fazackerley discovered that there simply was no solution on the market that allowed their three children to play for hours and cleanup in seconds. As Adam kept buying more LEGO® sets, Amy looked everywhere for a smarter organizational solution. She wanted something that made cleanup easy, contained the small pieces, could be used on the go, and was machine washable. There was no solution on the market that did all of these things, so they spent the next year designing, testing, re-engineering and producing what would become Lay-n-Go’s first product (the 60″ play mat).

The immediate success of this product turned a family dinner (at the restaurant where Adam & Amy met 10 years before) into a design session. With their three young boys at the table, they used the back side of their paper place mat to sketch out a smaller, personal solution.

The Lay-n-Go LITE (18″) was on the market less than five months later and was the perfect complement to the larger bag. The expanded product line created a rush of TV coverage, press, sales, and imaginative ideas of how else this product could be used.

After receiving the first shipment of LITEs, the expanding Lay-n-Go team started using this new personal size as their cosmetic and toiletry bags. The next product seemed obvious and the design of the COSMO began immediately.

Since developing their original product, Lay-n-Go has released the COSMO collection, the men’s TRAVELER, the LIFESTYLE & CINCH backpacks, and the tech accessory WIRED solution. These expanding product lines reinforced Lay-n-Go’s commitment to developing innovative organizational solutions for the entire family.

On July 21, 2015, the Fazackerleys were awarded a utility patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for their invention (U.S. Patent No. 9,084,459).

The VISION

Lay-n-Go will continue to solve cleanup and organizational challenges in daily routines to improve peoples’ lives. Their commitment to quality, style, durability, and innovative functionality will always be a priority for Lay-n-Go and their promise to the customers.
