This was my fifth week on the FODMAP diet.
Proposed Meal Plan
- Overnight Oats with blueberry milk, collagen peptides, peanut butter thinned to a sauce, and superfood granola.
- This week I want to keep it simple – all I have planned is to make up big batches of veggies, a base to go with them (rice/quinoa mix), and make a spicy lime vinaigrette to go with everything. And rotisserie chicken. I’ve got that on hand.
- I had no plan going to the grocery here, just knew I was tired of the marmite rice cakes, the buckwheat crackers I bought last time were yuck, and I didn’t want to rely too heavily on fruit this first week back from vacation.
Actual Meal Plan
- Overnight blueberry milk oats with superfood granola & peanut butter.
- Breakfast out at Eggspectations: Chicken, egg & fruit.
- Batch cooked a big bunch of zucchini & carrots and had a bunch of ways with a spicy lime vinaigrette and rotisserie chicken.
- Batch cooked some brown rice pasta – had with my favorite chili tuna.
- Lunch out at Wagamama: A rice noodle and greens salad with carrot and lemongrass vinaigrette + chicken.
- Lunch out at Chang’s: Spicy tuna sushi that was a frustrating semi-fail.
- Cucumber/cherry tomato/cilantro/lime vinaigrette salad – also eaten as a snack.
- Fairly joyless buckwheat & chia rice cake crisps – joyless because I couldn’t for the life of me think of what to put on them that wasn’t either a ton of calories, contained dairy, or was too sweet. I’ll keep working on this issue and get back to y’all with some options.
- A semi-fail green smoothie that looked compliant from the menu, but tasted like it may not be.
What did I learn this week?
This week was all about getting back into the swing – again – because for some reason I completely lost last week and thought I had just gotten back from vacation. 😆
I was a bit cocky in my restaurant choices, not wanting to believe that the vegan place really *doesn’t* have anything for me (again. It didn’t when I was doing Keto, and it’s semi-difficult to eat Paleo there too).
I also need to leave non-Japanese Asian places alone. Garlic is building block #1 of Chinese food. And yes, it’s in everything. Usually with onions.
