Taco Tuesday the Low FODMAP Way

Taco Tuesday the Low FODMAP Way

Published on Tuesday, October 04, 2022 by Author Name

For myself and my family, one of our favorite things to eat is Tacos! 

The hard part is being able to eat them in a Low FODMAP way.

I am here to bring you a recipe that can get you back on track with your Taco Tuesday with ingredients that pack that colorful flavor that makes all taco lovers drool.

Being on a Low FODMAP diet can be exactly what you’ve needed to start feeling good again, but sometimes following restrictive elimination diets can make you feel like you are missing out on some of your favorite aspects of eating.  

Two major ingredients found in many dishes are garlic and onions. 

This can also include the seasoning used to prepare your foods. These ingredients are used is they are simple and easy flavors that help give dishes robust flavors. While traditional recipes and eating out can still be complicated, you can easily make a wonderfully festive meal at home that isn’t difficult to put together or find ingredients for. 

We are continuously growing our Low FODMAP recipe collection on Foodguides (like this delicious FODMAP-friendly Egg Roll in a Bowl) and there are many trusted Low FODMAP recipe sources such as Monash University for inspiration. 

This recipe can also be for individuals suffering from GERD and other GI conditions, not currently in a flare-up. Ingredients can be swapped out based on already known tolerances. For example, you can leave out tomatoes or lemon/lime juice, and cayenne pepper if they bother your reflux. 

And don’t forget that this taco recipe can be used to make taco bowls or nachos!
