Some Low FODMAP Recipe Ideas - Part I
Baked Chicken with pineapple, cranberries, mint leaves, and almond slices:
I do not have exact amounts for the recipe listed above, but here is a basic overview: Marinate 2 chicken breasts in garlic infused olive oil and the juice of one orange for a few hours. Preheat oven to 350. Add chicken to baking dish coated with garlic infused olive oil. Add mint leaves, almonds, sliced cranberries, and pineapple on top of the chicken. Add preferred seasonings that are low FODMAP legal. Cover with foil and bake about 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes or until done. Tip: if the cranberries are too tart for your taste, mix them with a little bit of maple syrup or stevia prior to adding to the chicken.
Frozen sliced bananas topped with organic dark chocolate and chopped almond pieces:
This recipe is one of my favorites and VERY simple. A few hours before dinner, slice up a banana and place the slices so the form a circle on your plate. Heat up a few squares of organic, dark chocolate (this should be pure chocolate with no sugar or milk added) and drizzle over the top of the bananas. Add some sliced almonds atop of the chocolate. Put in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Remove 5 minutes prior to consuming. Enjoy, this one is delicious!
