Ilene’s Easy Low-Fodmap Shrimp Dinner

PranaSpirit My Easy Low-Fodmap Shrimp Dinner

Life is busy. As an owner of my own business, I hardly have time to make intricate dishes that take both labor and time. Here is an example of something I eat on a daily basis to keep my mind and body satisfied. It consists of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lots of veggies. More specifically, notice my plate is 1/4 protein, 1/4 starch, and 1/2 veggies.

As many of my clients know, I put a huge emphasis on balance in not only lifestyle and eating habits, but meals, too! This is ideally what one’s plate should always look like. Tonight I made lemon shrimp with spinach, steamed broccoli, and paprika “potato chips.”

This is not only generally healthful but FODMAP Elimination Diet-friendly.
