Who else is glad that the holiday season is over? It was extra special having it be the first with my baby boy but it was also exhausting. Eight nights of Hanukkah is no joke but I have to sadly say I did not have one latke (potato pancake) this year. Unfortunately, to cut down on time, we had frozen ones that had onions already mixed in. Don’t feel badly for me, I made up for it with dark chocolate! The holiday season can leave you feeling extra full and bloated which is why lighter meals like soup and salad are right up my alley this time of year. This FODMAP safe salad is the perfect seasonal salad to make this time of year. Citrus is one of the main produce items that are in season during these winter months so it’s easy to find and super affordable. Not only is citrus a great low FODMAP fruit option but also a great way to get that much needed vitamin C. I am extra cognizant to eat foods that are packed with vitamins and nutrients as we can all use the extra boost this time of year.
There are many other great health benefits of eating citrus like:
- A good source of fiber
- Cancer fighting food
- Boost heart health
