Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for a fresh lunch idea? This low FODMAP mandarine orange and goat cheese salad is the perfect lunch on the go! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up is lettuce. According to the Monash app, most salad greens are low FODMAP. If you like to use mixed greens like me, make sure to check the label for sneaky FODMAPs before you dig in.
We'll also be using mandarine oranges. According to Monash, mandarine oranges don't have any detectable FODMAPs. That means you can add as many orange slices as you'd like without adding to your FODMAP load.
This recipe also works with clementines. According to the Monash app, clementines don't have any detectable FODMAPs, either. Woot!
We'll also be using goat cheese (a.k.a. chèvre cheese). Monash University says goat cheese is low FODMAP in servings of 1 tbsp or 40 g. Servings of 2 cups (250 g) or more are high in lactose.
We'll be using 1/2 a tbsp, which works out to 20 g. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Last but not least, almonds. According to Monash, almonds are low FODMAP in servings of 10 almonds or 12 g per sitting. Servings of 20 almonds (24 g) or more are high in the FODMAP GOS.
We'll be using 0.5 tbsp of slivered almonds which works out to about 6 g. This is well within the recommended range.
