Benefits of this rainbow low fodmap salad
This salad is full of liver cleansing phytonutrients found in the colors of the vegetable rainbow!
Spinach is an excellent source of plant-based protein and folate to support the MTHFR gene. This post is all about what you need to know about MTHFR and SIBO. Many people initially have to implement a low fodmap diet due to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, which connects to a dirty MTHFR gene and PEMT gene.
Cucumber is a cooling, soothing and hydrating vegetable. Many people have inflammation in the gut, and cucumber is excellent for helping to soothe.
Both carrots and red pepper are fantastic low fodmap vegetables to bulk up salads and cleanse the liver.
Serve this low fodmap salad as a side salad with the almond butter lime dressing. You can quickly turn it into a low fodmap buddha bowl by adding grilled chicken or hemp seeds for additional protein and some basmati rice drizzles with the oil-free almond butter dressing.
