Are Eggs Low FODMAP?
When you’re suffering from IBS, it can be difficult to know what to eat, what’s going to trigger an attack, and even how to cook certain foods. It can become even more confusing when your doctor tells you that you need to follow a low FODMAP diet. You might not have heard of a low FODMAP diet, or if you have, you might not know what foods are low FODMAP. Eggs, for example, are a popular breakfast food, and are packed full of goodness, but are eggs low FODMAP? Can you eat them for breakfast? How should you cook your eggs? And do they need to be replaced if you’re baking?
Fortunately eggs are low FODMAP. They don’t need to be substituted for any baking recipes, though some of the other ingredients in the recipe may need to be. And you absolutely can have them for breakfast. In fact, eggs are pretty much the perfect food. They’re high in protein, vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. They’re low in carbohydrates. They can be cooked in a multitude of ways, from simply boiling them for five minutes for a soft boiled egg, or for ten minutes for a hard boiled egg, to scrambled eggs. They’re nutritionally exceptional.
