Low FODMAP Game Day Recipes
Writing this post right before lunch was perhaps not the best idea – now I’m getting hungrier and hungrier! But hey! What are your plans for the super bowl? I’m not a huge fan of football as a sport, but I am a fan of it as a social event. This goes all the way back to high school when I’d go to Friday night games to hang out with my friends, and when I got home my dad would ask me “who won?” and I’d be like “ummm…”
So obviously super bowl parties are in my future, but – as with parties in general – they present the problem: what can I eat? Because most everything that is there is filled with wheat, garlic, onion, or all of the above. My solution is to bring my own food! I’ve rounded up a few of my own recipes and some recipes from around the internet to give you inspiration for wherever you’re going tomorrow! Enjoy!
Low FODMAP Football Foods
- Salsa! Homemade salsa is an easy option, especially if you have a blender or food processor. I’ve got a recipe for salsa verde here, and I’m planning on making this charred salsa verde (without the onions, obvs) and bringing it to our friends’ super bowl party!
- Tortilla soup is always good for feeding a crowd
- Pizza! (See my pinterest board for more topping inspirations)
- This pineapple walnut cheese ball looks delicious
- Dip! This spinach dip looks tasty, and I’ll always say yes to some baba ganoush
- I might also need to make this roasted red pepper and pumpkin hummus from Monash University
- Rosemary chicken stuffed bell peppers sound like a good option for something more hearty
- Baked mozzarella chicken rolls, yum! Use plain gluten free bread crumbs (or just crumble some stale bread), omit garlic & onion and use garlic infused olive oil, and unseasoned tomato sauce.
- 20 minute turkey taco nachos anybody? Swap the onions & garlic for garlic-infused olive oil, use low FODMAP chicken stock, leave out the beans, and use lactose free yogurt or sour cream for topping.
- I’ve got a soft spot for sweet potato fries, and these chipotle ones look awesome! Leave out the garlic powder to make them low FODMAP.
- And these birria puffy tacos just look insanely delicious. (Again, leave out onion & garlic everywhere and use low FODMAP chicken broth.)

Woah, can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? I’m still not 100% used to the weather patterns here in Texas – it was 86 degrees a few days ago! – and while I absolutely love that, it has my brain still in summer / maaaaaybe fall mode, and I’m having trouble remembering that it is actually HOLIDAY SEASON…
Hey! We’re back with more weekly eats. This week was more successful in the grocery shopping and not eating out all the time category, hooray! Life in general has been closer to the “normal” level of chaos, which is always nice. I was also much more successful at taking pictures this time around. Turns out setting really annoying reminders does the trick…
