List of Low FODMAP Snacks that you can buy in any supermarket.
Have you ever felt super bored and tired with eating the same snacks while following the low FODMAP diet? I know I have! I've been eating the same boring snacks which were mostly clementines, rice crackers, and grapes for years. But one day I felt so done with them, so I started researching and making a list of all the FODMAP friendly snacks. And let me tell you, there are plenty of snacks that are FODMAP and tummy-friendly! And they are not boring at all! I’ve constructed a list of low FODMAP snacks that you can buy in any local supermarket. So regardless of where are you in the world, you will most likely be able to have access to all (if not, at least 90%) of these. These are no recipes, so cooking is not required and they are perfect for the on-the-go.
Savory Low FODMAP Snacks that you can buy in any supermarket
• Plain tortilla chips, salted. I love them on their own, but in combination with this low FODMAP salsa is just the best combo and is perfect for movie nights. If you can't find this salsa in your local supermarket you can order it on amazon or if you have some time you can make a homemade one.
• Plain potato chips. Avoid the ones with flavorings as they can contain FODMAPs.
• Salty popcorn. Same as the potato chips, avoid the ones with flavorings. If you are making them at home, you can season them with herbs, parmesan cheese, smoked paprika, and/or chili powder.
