Mom’s Day is just around the corner….and I thought I would put an easy menu together for your favorite Mom (who just might be FODMAP sensitive).
Beverages: Tea (black, peppermint, green) or coffee/espresso with lactose free milk and/or maybe… a little bubbly. If you opt for champagne, add a few raspberries or strawberries to a cocktail pick to dress up the presentation a bit! Keep your mom hydrated with some fancied up water: just add water, crushed ice, lemon slices and mint leaves to a pint size mason jar or a wine glass.
Main dish: Personally, I love simple scrambled eggs with a handful of baby spinach and a little grated cheddar. So flavorful and easy to put together. No recipe needed. I might add a few slices of bacon—I love the al fresco chicken bacon which has minimal ingredients. It does have celery powder as last ingredient–which has not been analyzed for FODMAPs–but seems to be tolerated a-okay by my clients.
I am also a big fan of my carrot cake waffle recipe made with a yummy lactose free cream cheese frosting with a hint of maple syrup. YUUUUUM! Low FODMAP waffles require a waffle maker…but you can purchase one for short money.
Sides: Fruit kabobs make a great addition to a brunch plate. Simply thread strawberries, banana rounds, bite size cantaloupe pieces, kiwifruit slices, blueberries, pineapple pieces and grapes onto a skewer. 1-2 skewers should be the perfect serving size for the FODMAPer! Kids can get involved and skewer the fruit.
I also love these carrot cake breakfast cookies featured in the picture above too. They provide a little sweet something for your favorite Mom!
Here’s wishing you a very Happy Mother’s Day… to all the ROCK STAR mamas out there!
I am a ‘quote girl’…so thought I’d share a few quotes about Mom’s with you in anticipation of Mother’s Day.
“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” —Sophia Loren
“I used to have working brain cells, but I traded them all for these babies.”-unknown
One of my favorites:
