If you're at all familiar with the Low FODMAPS diet, you know that maple syrup is a go-to sweetener, as it doesn't cause bloating or digestive problems. It's also high in magnesium, which can help to lower levels of stress-induced cortisol (which contributes to belly fat). So don't feel bad slathering your Fall dishes in this!
