The low fodmat diet is very restrictive, but yesterday I felt like a genius.
A couple days ago I made what was supposed to be a one serving size of quinoa. Right now, I can’t eat that much at once (it was a large service in my opinion), so I put half in the fridge. That night we had some roast beef and corn, so I added leftover corn. The next day I shredded the remaining beef for taco. I put a very small amount of leftover shredded beef. The following day we went grocery shopping and I had a little leftover raw zuccini. I add that to my bowl, heated it for a bit in the microwave, added low sodium soy sauce and I had a lunch bowl! All low fodmat! It didn’t taste bad either.
I felt like I’d won the lottery, LOLOL!
Sometimes it’s the little things in life. I know this diet is temporary, and it has help some of my stomach issues. I’ve also learned something interesting: I thought not being able to eat bread would be the hardest.
Nope, it’s not eating pears and apples and broccoli that bugs me the most. I’m finding out I can eat grapes though, and that’s surprising. I’ve actively avoided them thinking they were part of the problem.
It’s good to learn new things about ourselves! Now what I’d love to learn is when I’ll have the time, energy and drive to write again Sadly I don’t think this diet has the answer to that question.
How about you? Have you learned anything new about yourself recently?
