Happy Thanksgiving week to you and yours!
Thanksgiving reminds me to take inventory of what I am thankful for…The Scarlata family is gearing up for a fun, relaxing holiday with family. My brother-in-law is flying in from Canada and my son will be home for the holiday! 🙂 My just shy of 90 year old mom and all three kids will enjoy the holiday with us. So…what more could I ask for? 🙂
My favorite part of the holiday is the pre-game time. Chilling out and catching up with those I don’t see that often. I love appetizers…and my favorite is a good cheese plate.
So this Thanksgiving I am giving thanks for cheese! 🙂
Most cheese (unless its very wet) is low lactose and low FODMAP approved. If the cheese is hard and aged–it tends to be the lowest in lactose.
I love bringing a nice cheese plate to any holiday gathering as it’s easy to put together…requires NO cooking and travels well. Adding a few pretty sprigs of greenery makes it even prettier!
I created a savory cheese board on the left and a sweet version on the right. Olives (dressed up with a spring of rosemary), Swiss cheese, Chai BellaVitano cheese, baby carrots and some stacked brown rice crackers make for a tasty savory cheese plate. I might add some prosciutto too for the Italians in my world!
My dessert board features Taza chocolate–salted almond (amazing!), Taza Cape Escape cranberry jam a sweet jam with a hint of chocolate, Camembert, and some California red grapes. Russ surprised me yesterday and took me to Taza chocolate on a surprise road trip! BEST husband ever!

And a Low FODMAP stuffing recipe (I include a non-FODMAP and FODMAP version).
Hope this post inspires you to create some yummy low FODMAP treats for your upcoming holiday!
Safe travels to you and your family and… enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
