This post contains affiliate links. I’ll be honest, for the majority of March and April, I slacked off on follow WW (Weight Watchers). I had health issues, and I wasn’t even sure what I could or couldn’t eat. However, I now know what the majority of my health problems are, and the naturopath I’m seeing has put me on a Low Fodmap diet for 45 days. I decided to start tracking again, and I was pleasantly surprised that a low fodmap diet actually fits in very nicely with my WW plan. Here’s what I eat in a day on WW green plan (low fodmap, gluten free, dairy free).
For breakfast, I had the following:
1/2 cup cooked carrots (0 pts.)
1 tsp. olive oil for roasting the carrots (1 pt.)
1.5 ounces Trader Joe’s shredded hashbrowns (1 pt.)
2 slices Simple Truth bacon (2 pts.)
1 kiwi fruit (0 pts.)
TOTAL for Breakfast: 4 pts.
For lunch I had:
Taco Salad–I used this taco seasoning, 2 oz. ground beef, lettuce, tomato, and 1/4 c. roasted sweet potatoes (5 pts.)
Low Fodmap Banana Muffin–I altered the recipe to only use 1/4 cup maple syrup instead of 1/2 cup (5 pts.)
Total for Lunch – 10 pts.
I had a few snacks throughout the day
Muesli–to make this, I used 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 2 tsp. maple syrup, and 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (4 pts.)
Walnuts–I add 1 TBSP (2 pts.)
Then, I had what probably equates to another meal. 🙂
1 1/8 oz. ground pork patty (3 pts.)
2 oz. cooked potatoes (2 pts.)
Cucumber slices (0 pts.)
Cutie (0 pts.)
TOTAL for Snacks – 11 pts.
For dinner, I had Paleo Chili. I left out the garlic and onion in the orginal recipe to fit the low fodmap diet. (5 pts.)
TOTAL For the Day = 30 pts.
I’m allowed 30 points a day, so I was exactly on target, and I didn’t need to use my weekly points. I find that eating a low fodmap diet and following WW green plan merge very nicely together.
