Pepper and Tomato Omelette (low-FODMAP)
I make omelettes all the time, especially for lunch. They are so easy to load up with whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand.
Plus you can easily make a double portion and it will keep just fine in the fridge so that you’re set for lunch the next day as well!
I choose this particular combination of veggies, however, specially for the nutrients they are offering. The peppers, tomato, and eggs all come together to provide you with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats that can be especially helpful to combat the effects of stress on the body.
It’s also a great idea to get a portion of veggies in at lunch time – we want to be aiming for around 3-5 servings per day (or roughly 300 grams), and if you leave it all until dinner you’re just setting yourself up to fall short.
Just another reason to load up this omelette with whatever you have on hand!
