Low-FODMAP “Cleanse”

I don’t know about you – but we had two delicious thanksgiving meals and lots of leftovers in the fridge. I still have indigestion. This coming Monday is going to be the “Monday of all Mondays” and I am sure I am not alone on this. I don’t want to go into the December holiday season feeling like an overstuffed turkey. I am going to take Monday to reset myself with a low-FODMAP cleanse, and I invite you to join me.

Monday is the perfect day to start a diet or reset because you are starting a new week. Every new week is a chance for a new beginning. In this case, there is no pressure, because you don’t have to continue with a long-term diet (you certainly can) but this will give you a chance to start off this week on the right foot.

For the “cleanse” I am going to keep things really simple:


2 egg scrambled with smoked salmon, and ½ cup cooked spinach (I will use frozen spinach and cook in the same pan, before I cook the eggs.


2 clementine oranges


Romaine Lettuce with canned tuna, cucumbers, red peppers, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette.


10 olives


Grilled chicken breast with side of quinoa with toasted almonds, and steamed string beans.


Join me in my clean start post-Thanksgiving low-FODMAP cleanse day!
