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.)

I’ve been meaning to write this post forever, because I sort of feel like I’m lying to y’all otherwise. Being all “yeah the low FODMAP diet cured me!” when that’s only part of it. While I wish I didn’t have to take any medications for my IBS symptoms…
Alright, brace yourselves for a long post! About a month ago (?!!), Marc and I took a 10-day trip to Spain, and today I’m sharing all things we ate and my tips for traveling in Spain on the low FODMAP diet…
It’s that time of year, when colder temperatures and holiday craziness tend to lead to getting sick. How do you deal with sickness while also caring for your digestive system?
