We’re headed full steam toward the new year. People are getting into planning mode, ready to get back on track after cutting loose over the holidays.

Regardless of whether or not you stuck to the low FODMAP diet over the past couple months, New Years is a great chance at a fresh start. I’m not suggesting you overhaul your entire life all in one day. Those kinds of drastic changes almost never stick.

But if you slacked off your low FODMAP diet over the holidays and are ready to get back on track, this is a great time to do it.

With this in mind, the articles I’ve posted this month are a great starting place. We’ve talked about low FODMAP breakfast — to help you get out the door nourished and ready for the day, and low FODMAP lunch and dinner ideas — to help you avoid desperation take-out.

This week we’re going to get really practical and talk about planning. Your trips to the store will be much more efficient if you come armed with a low FODMAP grocery list.

Low FODMAP Meal Planning

If you’re on the low FODMAP diet to address IBS or SIBO symptoms, you know eating at home or bringing your own food is your best bet. Since FODMAPs aren’t listed on menus or packaging, it can be a challenge to figure out which foods are low FODMAP.

But prepping your own food is easier said than done. You have to plan ahead. But once you get into the planning habit, you can avoid the discouragement of staring into the fridge at 7:00 pm, wondering what you can eat for dinner. And low FODMAP meal planning doesn’t just mean breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can also plan low FODMAP snacks.

Meal planning is a game changer when it comes to sticking to your low FODMAP diet. And you can start small. Just plan out your breakfasts for the week. Or plan out 2 or 3 dinners. Then build up as you get more comfortable. And if you need some help, you can read about my 6 best meal planning tips, or my favorite low FODMAP meal planning resources.
