10 Low FODMAP Lunch Ideas To Mix Up Your Meal Prep
1. Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
The nice thing about quinoa is that it is a whole grain, AND it is a great source of protein as well. Plus this recipe is great for a fast dinner or can be made ahead and served cold as a side dish. Check out the recipe here.
2. Tofu Zucchini Rice Bowl
Tofu is definitely something that I have been experimenting with more in the kitchen. The trick to getting the tofu nice and crispy is drain out the excess water by pressing the tofu with a cookie sheet. Check out the recipe here!
3. Low FODMAP Salad with Tofu
Salad makes a quick and delicious lunch option! Cook the tofu like you did in the Tofu Zucchini Rice Bowl, and combine with lettuce, peppers, cucumbers and your dressing of choice (just make sure the dressing is low FODMAP friendly!)
4. Low FODMAP Turkey Sandwich
Sandwiches are not off limits when on a low FODMAP diet! We like our sandwiches on Canyon Bakehouse Bread. Top bread with avocado, Applegate oven roasted turkey breast, lettuce and tomato, and you are good to go!
Many Low FODMAPers do well with sushi! You can do the rice and fish variety or a roll with seaweed, fish, crab, carrots, avocado, bell pepper, sweet potato. Since the portions of these veggies are small the amount of FODMAPs present should be low enough not to present symptoms. If you are gluten free make sure to switch out the soy sauce for tamari or coconut aminos!
6. Low FODMAP Zucchini Pizza Bites
Just like the pizza bites you ate as a child, but now low FODMAP friendly! Even those not on a low FODMAP diet will enjoy this taste snack. Recipe here.
7. Low Fodmap Salmon Avocado Boats
These salmon avocado boats are easy to put together and oh so satisfying. Check out the recipe here.
8. Low FODMAP Tuna Salad with Crackers
Tuna salad is something my mom used to make all the time for lunch. Serve with gluten free crackers (I like Crunchmaster), and low fructose fruit like 2 clementines. Find the recipe here.
9. Low FODMAP Pasta Salad
This pasta salad makes an excellent lunch, or side dish for your next gathering! Check out the recipe here.
10. Low FODMAP Chicken Wrap
Another quick and easy lunch. We really like using Trader Joe’s Brown Rice wrap, with tahini, bell peppers, carrots, and rotisserie chicken!
