Low FODMAP Spinach Dip Recipe

What’s good? Spinach dip. What’s better? Low FODMAP spinach dip. What’s the best? Low FODMAP Low Fat Spinach Dip!

Prior to going on the low FODMAP diet, I frequently enjoyed Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Spinach & Kale Yogurt Dip. It was the perfect item to take with a veggie tray and some tortilla chips, and most people didn’t even realize it was a “better for you” option than normal spinach dip. However, there are many offenders within the ingredients that makes it an unsafe option on the low FODMAP diet, including milk, onions and garlic. I made a few changes to not only eliminate high FODMAP ingredients, but tailored it to my taste preferences.

Low FODMAP Brownie Recipe

The low FODMAP diet requires a lot of planning and preparation for every meal. These low FODMAP brownies are a game changer. Three simple ingredients and a five minute prep time. Thank you, Betty Crocker!

I always have a few boxes of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix on hand for numerous occasions, including taking to parties or hosting guests. Not to mention quenching my sweet-tooth here and there. You can dress them up or dress them down. And adding an extra egg will give them a cake-like texture. This little box is honestly one of the most versatile items in my pantry!

As a bonus, I never tell anyone that they’re gluten free (unless asked) and no one can even tell. I feel like that’s a baseline for great tasting food… people who are lucky enough to eat anything shouldn’t be able to tell that it’s fitting within numerous dietary restrictions.
