Cabo San Lucas, Mexico holds a special place in my heart. Not only did my husband and I get married here but it’s where we always want to go back for vacation. Thank goodness Southwest Airlines flies direct to Cabo and is pretty inexpensive otherwise I’d be in trouble. I am obsessed with all things Cabo San Lucas, Mexico including the insane guacamole and chips available at all restaurants. Most restaurant style dip has onions and garlic already mixed in so I can never order it out. In Cabo, it’s a different story! I am able to eat my heart’s content (well a FODMAP safe heart’s content) of guacamole without having to worry. Restaurants in Cabo are so great about substituting and making a fresh batch of whatever you need even including pico de gallo. I would seriously move here if my husband would let me but the closest I have gotten is a vacation here and there. Maybe one day we can buy a second home and be all rich and famous…a girl can dream, right?! (P.S. I would love to gush all things Cabo so if you’re thinking of getting married here, please contact me!)
Now for the portion size fun: according to the Monash University Low Fodmap Diet Guide, 1/8 cup serving size of avocados is a-okay and you can even push it to 1/4 cup serving size if you’re not sensitive to sorbitols. This may sound like a small amount but sometimes just knowing you can have a little makes you feel like a normal person. Personally, I have noticed that I am fine having a few small scoops of avocado and still feeling well. Word of caution, start out small and work your way up to see how you handle it. Avocado is a great source of healthy fats if you are able to add it to your diet.Print
A guacamole recipe without the onions and garlic but still packed with so much flavor!
- 4 Avocados
- 1 Lime, juice
- 1 Small Tomato, loosely chopped
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- 1 Teaspoon Cilantro, loosely chopped (optional)
- In a medium-sized bowl, add all of the ingredients and season to taste.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
If you are making this ahead of time, leave the pit of the avocado in the guacamole. It will keep it from turning brown.
According to the Monash University Low Fodmap Diet Guide, 1/8 cup serving size of avocados is safe and you can even push it to 1/4 cup serving size if you’re not sensitive to sorbitols.
