Happy New Year! In case you’re still looking for a New Year’s resolution that fits the bill, have you considered… eating seasonally? It’s packed full of nutrients, eco-friendly(er) and your local community benefits too.
In this New Year’s edition of “Low FODMAP in season”, we’re taking a fresh new look at what produce will shine on our plates this month.
Here’s what’s in season this month (FODMAP and portion size information provided by Monash University):
You can have generous amounts of the following produce.
|Oranges, Clementines, Satsumas, Tangerines|
Stick to the portion sizes per sitting to avoid flare-ups. If you know that you’re okay with – say, fructose – you can experiment with larger portions of, for instance, broccoli.
|Brussel sprouts||Fructose||2 sprouts only|
|Pomegranate||Oligo-fructanes||1/4 cup seeds|
|Rutabaga||Polyol-sorbitol||1 cup, sized|
The following produce are high in FODMAPs and should be avoided initially and dealt with cautiously in the reintroduction phase.
