Hope you had a great weekend.
This weekend I realized something awful.
Salsa on the low FODMAP elimination diet isn’t a thing.
On the Whole30, I learned to be careful with salsas and even tried making some homemade, but onions and garlic are allowed on Whole30, and they’re strictly NOT on low FODMAP. It’s okay. 5 more weeks. Without salsa. The longest in my Texas-raised life that I have lived without salsa. I will survive.
This weekend we did a ton of house organization stuff. Apparently I am a hoarder and kept every single one of my notebooks from undergrad. Yikes.
We continued playing with our cool, new kitchen appliances. I was craving a smoothie, so I threw some things in the ninja blender
and ta-dah! A smoothie snack.
It wasn’t good. I can’t get over the texture left behind from blended cucumbers.
But this morning’s breakfast smoothie snack was delicious (and less attractive). The best part- it’s low FODMAP 🙂
I was a little concerned about using my favorite protein, Vega brand. One of the main sources of protein it uses is pea protein. After researching, I’m fairly certain that it’s still a qualified low-FODMAP food if consumed in amounts <20g. One whole scoop serving is 44g, so I measured less than half of the scoop.
-A little less than 1/2 scoop of Vega Sport Chocolate protein
-1/2 C almond milk/water mix
-1/2 C coconut milk yogurt (or another lactose-free yogurt)
-1 C ice
-1/2 tbsp peanut butter (or coconut oil! another good source of healthy fat)
-1/2 tbsp chia seeds (another decent source of protein)
(I also added a packet of Enteragam protein from my doctor. Doesn’t affect the taste)
I normally like to add frozen fruits or veggies to my smoothies…but I need to go grocery shopping.
Hope you’re all having a really great Monday!
Keep moving forward 🙂
