While it can be fun to unleash your creativity on the Low FODMAP Diet, sometimes it's helpful to go back to basics. Breakout your lunchbox, because here are three of my favourite low FODMAP sandwich ideas.
Sandwiches are the unsung heroes of lunchtime. They're an easy and inexpensive way to fuel yourself on a busy day, and with the right ingredients, you can still have a little fun. The trick to getting your sandwich from the kitchen to the office is storing your wet ingredients separately.
Worried about soggy sandwiches? The trick to getting your sandwich from the kitchen to the office is storing your wet ingredients separately.
Toasted Tomato Sandwiches
These are great when you need something fast. I save them for days when I only have a few minutes for lunch, or when I need a quick but filling snack.
To make a toasted tomato sandwich, toast two pieces of low FODMAP bread and spread some homemade aioli on each slice. Add one piece of cheddar cheese, some lettuce, a tomato slice and you're done.
Egg Salad Sandwich
These need a little more planning, but they can be made ahead. They're also a fantastic way to add some protein to your lunch.
To make this classic sandwich, mash 8 hard-boiled eggs in a medium-sized bowl. Add 3 tbsp homemade aioli, 2 tbsp of plain mustard, and a pinch of paprika, salt, and pepper. If you want to spice it up, you can also add a tbsp of minced green onion (green parts only). Serve on your favourite low FODMAP bread.
If you're traveling with one of these, put a piece of lettuce between the bread and the filling so it doesn't get soggy. Make sure you refrigerate the sandwich if you'll be out for more than 2 hours (1 hour if it's hot outside).
BLT Sandwich with Chicken & Avocado Aioli
This epic BLT sandwich is served with a chicken breast and topped with mouth-watering avocado aioli.
To make this recipe, toast two pieces of low FODMAP bread and top with lettuce, tomato, bacon, and thinly sliced pieces of chicken breast. Top it off with some avocado aioli, then close it up and enjoy.
