1. One Pan Ranch Chicken
This is a favorite of mine for many reasons. Starting with that it is a one pan meal which makes shopping, prep, clean up all super easy. Everything on the same pan goes into the oven and is done at the same time! I also love anything ranch inspired so that also attracts me to this meal. I recommend it to my clients a lot and have gotten only positive feedback! Check out the recipe here.
2. Rainbow Mason Jar Salad
Mason Jar salads are great for prepping ahead. You can make them a few at a time and do all of your chopping at one time leaving your only job during the week to grab and go. Low FODMAP living can be low in fiber but this salad really packs a punch of fiber. Check out the recipe here.
3. Stuffed peppers
Another great prep ahead meal that also freezes well. This meal is all in one- protein, starch and vegetable for one conveniently balanced meal. Check out this recipe here.
I don’t think it is possible for me to write a blog post without mentioning tacos. Here is my low fodmap version.

For this meal make as you would regular taco bar with these low fodmap swaps.
- Corn tortillas

5. Stir Fry
My easy stir fry is a must for any busy night even if you only have 10 minutes to put together dinner. I always have the frozen vegetables in the freezer and Uncle Ben’s 90 Second Rice that is ready to go in minutes. I use eggs as the protein to create a “fried” rice option when time is tight and I don’t have groceries on hand. Check out the recipe here.
6. Baked Potato with Cheese and Broccoli
This meal is so simple, yet satisfying and balanced. A great back up meal when you don’t feel like cooking, especially when it is hot outside! You can find the recipe here.
There are many ways to make kabobs by switching up the protein and veggies. Get creative and add on some pineapple on your shrimp skewers! Check out the recipe here.

This would be another easy meal to customize for your family. Chop up some veggies and have each family member make their own! You can find the recipe here.
9. Gluten Free Pasta and Veggies
Pasta is a quick go to for me, adding in the vegetables balances out the meal. A bit of pesto for flavor and marinara sauce to top. Check out this recipe here!
