I have had it on my bucket list to go to Greece ever since the Kardashians went years ago. Please don’t judge me but the islands looked absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I decided for our honeymoon we wanted to explore the beauty of the country and we did just that in Santorini. I was delighted to find so many healthy and delicious foods to eat. I thought I knew what tomatoes and cucumbers tasted like but there is NO comparison to the produce in Greece. There has been so much research on the positive benefits of the Mediterranean diet in recent years. What I love the most about this healthy fat and a plant-based diet is how do-able it really is to incorporate in your everyday life. Finding Mediterranean FODMAP chicken recipes is not easy, so obviously I created one myself!
Fodmap Safe Foods on the Mediterranean Diet:
-Tomatoes, Spinach, and Eggplant
-Nuts & Seeds (Almonds- safe portion-10 nuts)
-Legumes and Beans (lentils-safe portion-1/2 cup & Chickpeas-safe portion-1/4 cup-1/2 cup)
-Wild Caught Seafood
Lucky for me the Mediterranean cuisine has always been one of my favorites but it’s hard to eat out because of the heavy use of garlic and onion. Most chicken kabobs at restaurants have been pre-marinated so I made this Fodmap safe version which is garlic and onion free. The best part is it’s a super easy recipe to make and takes little time to cook plus the presentation is so pretty.
