Recipes for Multiple Sclerosis
Diet plays a vital role in managing MS symptoms and relapses, which is why the Overcoming MS diet is the first step to take on the OMS Program — but where do you start? Take a look at our recipes for MS — the OMS diet is designed to be really enjoyable!
Recipes to help with your MS
It is easy to slip into unhealthy dietary habits in a fast-paced world. We get stuck in a rut with the same shopping order each week and the same processed foods for convenience. Our recipes aim to change all that, sparking a new enthusiasm for cooking, showing you all the delicious things you can eat and what you can make quickly, easily and inexpensively.
Multiple studies have shown that there is a link between the development and progression of MS and dietary saturated fats. Saturated fat is a type of fat mainly found in animal products, fatty meats, lard, cheese and butter. That is why the OMS diet is a plant-based diet that eliminates meat and dairy (but includes seafood). It aims to significantly reduce saturated fat intake while increasing the intake of omega-3 fats.
