On my Instagram, I receive a lot of questions about the Low FODMAP Diet for my autoimmune disease and IBS.
I always tell my followers the importance of only doing this diet if it is prescribed by a doctor. Why? Because it’s dangerous.
If you’ve consulted with your doctor and they allow you to proceed, here’s my best advice– meal prep. In order to do this, you’ll need lots of food.
The best thing I ever did for myself was investing $50 in a Costco membership card. While it’s a hefty bill upfront, you will learn that not having to grocery shop more than twice a month is a blessing while in your first two months of this diet. You think grocery shopping hungry is bad? Try grocery shopping when your metabolism breaks down food so fast that you’re always hungry.
I welcome you to the LOWFODMAP life. Where you’re constantly eating, constantly craving, and practicing discipline every single minute.
While Costco doesn’t have everything, you’re going to be eating a lot of the same things, so you might as well buy them in bulk. If you can save money along the way, it’s a win win!
Here is my Low FODMAP Costco Shopping List:
- Coconut cream
- Thai noodles
- Gf bread
- Split peas
- Grape Tomatoes
- Popcorn kernels
- Corn tortillas
- Frozen peas
- Peppers 🌶
- Carrots 🥕
- Cashews (if your body responds well)
- Zip lock baggies
- Gf pasta/ alborio rice
- Better body foods coconut oil
