This New Low FODMAP Diet is Molto Delizioso

Get excited, Italian cuisine just got tummy-friendly

Creativity 3 min read Sep 25, 2019

The search is over for Low FODMAP Italian recipes! Now, you can enjoy the same mouth-watering meals you’ve always loved, without upsetting your tummy.

But first, a quick look at FODMAP. Like paleo, keto, AIP, and GAPS, the Low FODMAP diet helps people with poor tolerance to certain types of food - in this case, it’s fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols. Yeah, it is a mouthful, no pun intended. But in simple terms, these are the types of carbs that tend to cause bloating and stomach pain. Well, nobody wants that.

Does Low FODMAP mean no-carb, bland meals that you can eat only every other day? Just the opposite! Do you like Thai rolls, hummus, and choco chip cookies? You’re welcome.

Homemade roasted carrot hummus- super easy to make and full of flavor!😍🥕 . I have been making this dip every week since the super bowl, thanks to @karliekloss , and it is one of my new favorite recipes!! . I’ve been trying to lay off the chickpeas because I have been trying #lowfodmap to help with my digestion, but I really missed hummus!! This is a perfect alternative that is super clean and delicious! I love dipping it with fresh farmers market veggies and @sietefoods ranch chips for yummy a snack- you could also add it to sandwiches or on top of eggs! I’m not even a big fan of carrots, and this is a must have for me! . Head to my story or Karlie’s YouTube channel for the recipe- she has great videos! Do you have a go-to snack that you’re diggin lately?! Let me know, I’m the snack queen! 👑

It is Day 1 of my #28daylowfodmapchallenge. In preparation to be on my antibiotics at the end of month, it is recommended to follow a Low Fodmap (in moderation) diet during the treatment. I wanted to get an early start on it with this challenge, honestly to keep myself accountable, but also to provide inspiration or recipes to those who also have to go through the process. It is so easy to focus on all the foods that you CAN’T have on an elimination diet, but instead, this time around, I’d love to focus my mindset on the positives of what you CAN have and use it as an opportunity to try new things. Like rutabaga. Who on planet earth chooses to eat rutabaga? Today’s low fodmap recipe is these collagen chocolate chip cookies! . . Recipe: 1 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup melted ghee or coconut oil (whichever you have), 1 scoop collagen (optional) 1 egg, 2-3 TB maple syrup, 1/2 TB vanilla powder/extract, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda. 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Mix all together and bake in the oven at 350 F for 10 minutes.
