Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for a quick and easy lunch you can take on-the-go? These low FODMAP chicken Caesar wraps are perfect for work or school. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, chicken! Since chicken is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs (unless you add them). So, you can eat as much chicken as you'd like without adding to your FODMAP load.
We'll also be using cherry tomatoes. According to the Monash app, cherry tomatoes are low FODMAP in servings of 5 cherries (75 g). Servings of 16 cherries or more are high in the FODMAP fructose.
This recipe also uses parmesan cheese. According to Monash University, parmesan cheese is low FODMAP in servings of 1/4 cups (40 g) per serving. Servings of 4 cups (500 g) or more high in lactose.
Our recipe uses 0.25 cups of parmesan total, which works out to 0.63 servings of lactose per wrap.
Next up, low FODMAP caesar salad dressing. I haven't found a low FODMAP caesar salad dressing at my local store, yet. So normally use Fody Food Co.'s Monash certified caesar salad dressing. According to the Monash app, Fody's caesar salad dressing is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp (30 g) per sitting. Though, they don't list a maximum serving size.
We'll be using 1 tbsp per wrap, which is within Monash's recommended range.
Last but not least, wraps! Monash University doesn't have a wrap listed in the app. I typically calculate my wraps based on gluten-free bread, which is low FODMAP in servings of 52g per sitting – the average low FODMAP wrap is about 10g.
