One of my fondest memories growing up was helping dad make Mum poached eggs on mother’s day (even though my task was just cooking the toast). This act of making Mum breaky on mother’s day is a very common and lovely gesture. Whether it breakfast in bed, at the dining table, in the backyard, or out at a café – it is a lovely way to start the day.
What if Mum is on a low FODMAP diet?
Fear not! There are plenty of amazing options you can whip up which both Mum and the rest of the family will enjoy. If Mum is a sweet-tooth like myself, our French toast w/caramelised banana will be a real hit. So will our berry pancakes – light, fluffy and delicious like all pancakes should be!
If you wanted to make a savoury breaky instead, definitely give our breakfast bruschetta a go! It is full of delicious flavours, and contains a heap of great nutrients as a bonus. These recipes are all also suitable for those who can’t have gluten or are lactose-intolerant – just swap the sourdough for gluten-free bread in the bruschetta and French toast.
Top tips to design a low FODMAP breakfast
A lot of recipes can easily be modified to be made low FODMAP. Here are great low FODMAP breaky ingredients you can choose:
- Protein options you can include with a savoury breaky are eggs, bacon, ham, and smoked salmon. None of these contain FODMAPS (just make sure bacon/ham is plain, not honey).
- Great bread options for toast include some gluten-free varieties, traditional sourdough, and Helga’s lower carb bread range.
- Tea and coffee are both low-FODMAP with a lactose-free or almond milk.
- Use lactose-free or almond milk to make a fruit smoothie.
- Gluten-free crossiants are available in the freezer section at coles.
- Peanut butter and strawberry/raspberry/blueberry jam are low FODMAP and a great breaky inclusion
