I'm all for having quick and easy meals.
In fact, I hate (or at least have to have a good incentive) to cook anything that takes longer than 30 minutes!
After school activities, end-of-week syndrome, whatever ... one pot meals are a great way to a) save time, and b) save washing up duties! Win win!
Let me share one of my favourite one pot meals, with some great low FODMAP swaps.
We love South American food. And Mexican bake / Nachos / Burritos are a guaranteed-eat in our family.
At the moment we're heading in to avocado season, which means we get guacamole with our Mexican dishes.
Great news ... or is it? Avocado is an unfortunate FODMAP no-no, if you've got polyol issues.
And then there's the lashings of garlic, onion and red onion. MMMmm. But no! Not if you've got a fructan trigger.
Don't forget red kidney beans, a staple of great South American food. Hold it! Galactan issues means that they're not your friend.
Mexican food can be a problem if you're low FODMAP. (sad face). But I'll show you how a few little tweeks can make it a delicious meal for all.

If you know your FODMAP triggers, then just use the swaps that affect you.
