Buy corn tortillas that do not contain wheat flour or other high FODMAP ingredients like inulin (chicory root fibre).
To save your budget you can buy normal tortillas for any family members who do not need to be low FODMAP or gluten free.
Buy a bunch of spring onions/scallions with long green leaves. You can use the green leaves in your low FODMAP meals, just make sure you avoid using the white stem and lime green stems as these are high FODMAP. Once you've harvested the leaves pop the spring onion/scallion bulbs into a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
Check the vegan cheese does not include onion, garlic, inulin or coconut flour in the ingredients. Cheddar, Colby, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses made from dairy are all low FODMAP.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
