Looking for some low FODMAP lunchbox inspiration? Hot minestrone soup makes a yummy and filling lunch. Pack the soup in a thermos to keep it hot until you need it. I love pairing my soup with some crackers, fruit, and a low FODMAP slice to create a nutritious lunchbox.
Note on cheese: Some cheeses are low FODMAP, however if you cannot tolerate any dairy, try swapping the cheese for chive dip.
Check the vegan cheese does not include cashews, onion, garlic or coconut flour in the ingredients. Monash University recommends soy based vegan cheese if you can find it. Normal cow's milk-based cheddar, Colby, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses are all low FODMAP.
Choose plain rice cakes or rice crackers and avoid ones that are flavoured with high FODMAP ingredients like onion powder, garlic powder, milk powder, milk solids, whey powder (chicken flavoured or sour cream & chives often contain sneaky FODMAPs). Also check that there is no inulin (chicory root/dietary fibre) listed in the ingredients list.
