7 IBS-Friendly Recipes, With FODMAP Ingredients
Trust me, I know what it’s like to have IBS and struggle every day to find the proper foods for your stomach to accept and digest. If you often find yourself eating boring and untasty food just to make sure you don’t upset your digestion process, you can relax.
You won’t have to do this anymore. If you’re worried about your digestion, you first have to learn what upsets your stomach. It can either be triggered by eating specific carbohydrates, fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, or even monosaccharides and polyols (check FODMAP), or by other reasons.
It’s true that the process of finding what upsets your digestive system might involve one or two food restrictions, which can also come with tasteless food. However, the compromise on flavors ends today! We’ve prepared for a full list of foods you can eat, from veggie sandwiches to smoothies and banana oatmeal muffins, so…Bon appetite!
Avocado Green Goddess Veggie Sandwich
- 2 slices of LOFO bread you prefer
- 1/4 cup of vegan low FODMAP avocado green goddess dressing
- 3/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
- many leaves of fresh baby arugula
- 1 cucumber, cut into broad ribbons
- 1 slice of vegan cheddar cheese, if you like cheese
- Slather the vegan low FODMAP avocado green goddess dressing on those bread slices, then add some cheese, sprouts, arugula, and cucumber.
- Your sandwich is now ready to be served, but it can also be wrapped in a ziplock or refrigerated overnight!
- Arugula: Arugula has been lab tested by Monash university. For many years they were convinced that arugula had no FODMAPs. However, after 2019, they changed their mind, stating that arugula has trace amounts, but it can still be eaten freely, depending on your appetite
- Avocado: Both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have tested avocados various times in their labs, and the results were very different. According to Monash, a proper serving size would be around 30 g, while FODMAP states that you can also eat 120g.
- Cucumbers: It seems that both Monash University and FODMAP have lab-tested cucumbers multiple times. FODMAP Friendly gave a “Pass” at 1/2 cup, while Monash stated that no FODMAPs were detected on lab testing, deciding on the serving size of half a cup.
