Low FODMAP Buddha Bowl

There are few things I love more than a delicious Buddha bowl  And the key to the perfect #lowfodmap Buddha bowl is PORTION SIZE.

There’s a lot of misconception out there that if you’re following a #lowfodmap diet then you’re eating low fiber. You can still eat PLENTY of fiber from legumes, whole grains and veggies but it’s just about choosing the right ones and eating the right portion sizes.

Key ingredients to your perfect Buddha bowl are: protein, healthy fat and complex carbs. Proteins could be  Eggs, fish, chicken or low FODMAP legumes. Healthy fats are things like olive oil or low FODMAP cheese. Complex carbs include whole grains, starchy veggies and legumes. And don’t forget lots and lots of low FODMAP veggies!

This bowl contains:

-1/2 cup canned lentils (legumes)

-1/4 cup quinoa (whole grain)

-1/2 cup sweet potato (starchy veggie)

-mini bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers (veggies)

-sprinkle of sharp cheddar & drizzle of olive oil (healthy fat)

-fried egg (protein)

-hot sauce for seasoning (be sure to choose a Low FODMAP sauce (like @tabasco or @texaspetesauces )

Lentils that are canned are considered low FODMAP but keep your portion size to 1/2 cup 🏻 Same goes for sweet potatoes  Quinoa is a low FODMAP grain but you could also try rice or gluten free pasta  •
