Stir-fry Garlic Ginger Broccolini
This tasty recipe includes ginger, which may have some soothing benefits to IBS. Broccolini, a hybrid of broccoli has the same anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties with a less pungent and sweeter taste. It can be enjoyed on low FODMAP, just watch your portion size. The stalks are a lower FODMAP food, and personally my favorite part of this vegetable! Although garlic is eliminated in the testing stage of a FODMAP diet, many people can reintroduce it back and tolerate it in small amounts. Always evaluate how you feel after a meal and keep track to discover which foods help and which should be avoided.
