FODMAP Diet Week 1 – My recipes

FODMAP week 1 was a struggle, i felt like I was always hungry and quickly realized I needed to almost double my portions to prevent snacking.  I had the following meal plan this past week:

Breakfast

  • 1 boiled egg – Sunday evening I boiled 5 eggs and every morning I heated a egg in warm water
  • 1 banana

with  one of the below choices:

  • 1 gluten, soy, wheat free cinnamon raisin bagel with butter. – Udi’s http://udisglutenfree.com/  is the brand I bought, pretty tasty.
  • 1 bowl of Steel Cut Oats with cinnamon, sugar, coconut milk, strawberries, and banana.

Pretty tasty and filling.

Lunch/Dinner

Since I like to make meals for the week I baked a whole chicken with potatoes and carrots. I seasoned the chicken with the below ingredients:

  • Fresh Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, and Chives (recipe size)
  • Lemon juice (squeezed from a lemon)
  • Salt/pepper
  • Garlic Olive Oil

I blended the fresh herbs, lemon juice, oil, salt/pepper to create a paste to put under the skin of the chicken. Baked the chicken at 375 degrees, 20 minutes per pound of chicken. I added the leftover lemon, potatoes, carrots and butter to the baking dish in the last hour.

Chicken came out pretty tasty and the meat fell off the bone, but I will admit the garlic/onion was missed. I’ll use more herbs next time.

By Thursday the chicken was bare so for an end of the week meal I baked tilapia fillets. Topped the tilapia with gluten-free breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, olive oil, and salt/pepper. As a side I cooked quinoa and seasoned it with salt/pepper, dried oregano and basil, garlic olive oil, and lemon juice. Pretty tasty but not filling, so I added a small baked potato with the meal and I was finally full! Prednisone is horrible lol

I tried really hard to make the above meals FODMAP friendly, which is a challenge itself.  As a result, I had very few stomach issues this past week, so I think I’m doing something right 🙂

Looking forward to the challenge of week 2 and have a follow-up with my nutritionist next Friday.
