The Weekly Menu July 11, 2016
Time for the gluten-free, low FODMAP weekly menu July 11!
So my digestive system is actually doing a little better on the low FODMAP diet (still also gluten, totally dairy and casein free except for the Parmesan). I’ve learned a lot more about food this week, too:
- basically all my spice blends have garlic or onion powder in them – so I need to revamp all the homemade blends I use
- ketchup, hot sauce, curry paste and lots of condiments have garlic or onion powder in them
- garlic infused olive is oil is awesome
- a lot of high FODMAP food are veggies, fruit, nuts, beans, honey… the stuff we love to eat
But we are going to continue this diet for awhile until I feel better. It’s a process but these weekly menus help make my life so much easier.
Sharp pivot to some fun news.
My gluten free P.F. Chang-y lettuce wrap recipe and photo were published in the food section of the paper thanks to Addie Broyles, an awesome food writer for the Austin American Statesman.
She has also created fun food related projects on Instagram like #Austin360cooks and the #theyearofbaking.
Here’s the link to the article with a great Whole30 idea for tacos from the Smoking Ho, too! http://food.blog.mystatesman.com/2016/07/05/austin360cooks-jicama-tacos-knocking-off-p-f-changs-lettuce-wraps/
At the bottom of the article you can check out lots of great dinner ideas from Austin360Cooks – because sometimes “what’s for dinner?” needs a little inspiration! #dinspiration
