It’s been almost 8 weeks since I started my low FodMap diet and what a world of difference in my stomach. I have been on a turkey sandwich kick lately for lunch and wanted to share this quick and easy sandwich if you are trying to eat foods low in FodMaps and avoid a bloated painful stomach. For me, turkey is super boring and honestly, not very appetizing. Cheddar cheese and cucumber are among the foods that are considered low in FodMaps so I always add them to my sandwich.
I have also cut out about 80% of gluten from my diet and the Udi’s Gluten Free breads are by far my favorite. I prefer the whole grain or the flax & fiber.
Instead of using mayo on my sandwich (it upsets my stomach) I use a teaspoon or two of Fage 100% greek yogurt. At first, I was like, this is going to be disgusting but it’s actually really good in place of mayo. Plain hummus is also a great alternative to mayo and much healthier. I prefer a premium brand gluten free oven roasted deli turkey breast, one that is low in salt. I add my sliced turkey, cucumber and a small amount of shredded cheddar to a piece of gluten free bread and toast for about 5 minutes. I then add the greek yogurt or hummus once it’s toasted and that’s it, a delicious healthy turkey sandwich that doesn’t make my stomach blow up ;).
