Low FODMAP Meals
One Pan Ranch Chicken is a favorite of mine for many reasons. Starting with that it is a one-pan meal which makes shopping, prep, and clean up all super easy. Everything goes 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 received only positive feedback!
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.
Stuffed peppers are another great prep-ahead meal that also freezes well. This meal is all in one- protein, starch, and vegetable for one conveniently balanced meal.
I don’t think it is possible for me to write a blog post without mentioning tacos. Here is my low fodmap version. I absolutely love a taco bar- great for the family while also accommodating the low fodmap diet for you. Check out the recipe here.
Swaps for Low FODMAP Meals
For this meal, make a regular taco bar but with these low fodmap swaps:
- Corn tortillas
- Ground chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lentils
- Fody Foods taco seasoning or create your own garlic/onion free mix
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. 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.
This meal is so simple yet so full of flavor. A great back up meal when you don’t feel like cooking, especially when it is cold outside! Find the recipe here.
There are many ways to make kebabs by switching up the protein and veggies. Get creative and maybe add some pineapple on your shrimp skewers!
This is a meal that can be made in minutes. Feel free to experiment with different kinds of fish and veggies! 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.
A roasted veggie salad is a quick go-to for me, adding in a protein and fodmap-friendly starch on the side balances out the meal. Check out this recipe here!
10. English Muffin Pizza
A quick and easy crowd-pleaser. Who said you can’t have pizza on the low fodmap diet? Be sure to use gluten-free English muffins and FODY Foods Marinara Sauce to make sure your meal is completely low FODMAP. Check out the recipe here.
