Top 5 Low-FODMAP Recipes of 2016

I almost don’t want to say anything…but my recipes have been generating much more traffic to the blog in the last month than they had all year.

Awareness of the low-FODMAP diet is growing rapidly in the U.S., and as it grows, I hope that my blog can provide some options for those who are giving it a first try. It is an enormous task to go through the elimination phase of the low-FODMAP diet, and not for the faint of heart, but for those who experience severe IBS on a day-to-day basis (as I did for a year or more), trying the elimination diet and/or following a modified low-FODMAP diet once you’ve identified your personal trigger foods can be well worth the frustration of getting through the initial confusion of all its rules and stipulations.

Here were the top five most popular low-FODMAP recipes from The Hungry Caterpillar blog in 2016. All delicious choices, if I do say so myself.

5. Ham & Broccoli Twice Baked Potatoes

I never got a better shot of these guys. But…these puppies are easy to put together, cheap, and healthy. Did you know that a large potato can as much as 7g of fiber and up to 50% of your daily value of vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium?

4. Potato Corn Chowder

One of my favorite recipes on this blog as well. I have made this chowder many, many times now. It’s vegetarian too!

3. Low-FODMAP Lasagna

If you’re looking for a basic low-FODMAP lasagna recipe or a vegetarian, gluten-free meal, this is a great option. Lactose-free farmer cheese ftw! (If only I could find a place in Fort Collins that sells the stuff.) 

2. Chili Con Carne

I don’t blame you guys. This low-FODMAP chili turned out good; maybe my favorite recipe that I’ve posted to the blog so far.

1. Curry Carrot Chickpea Burgers

I was very pleased to see these beauties make the #1 slot. They’re low-FODMAP, vegan, gluten-free, and high-protein too! Give ’em a try; you’ll love them no matter what your dietary needs.

Linking up with Allergy-Free Thursdays and Gluten-Free Fridays. Check out more allergy-friendly recipes in these awesome linkups!

Thanks to all my readers who have followed my blog or tried my recipes. Look for more delicious low-FODMAP eats to come in 2017!

    Big congrats, Joyce! On all your recipes and blog growth this year. Obviously I’m a fan of you and your food, so keep them both coming.
    I think this year needs to be the year of “the patty.” So your carrot burgers are going on the list.

    1. Joyce says:

      The year of the patty sounds good to me. 🙂 Hope they turn out well if you try them.

  4. Jen says:
