Vegetarian Sources of Protein on the Low FODMAP Diet

 In #AskADietitian Videos, Feature, Gut Health & IBS

This week on #AskADietitian we covered Vegetarian Sources of Protein on the Low FODMAP Diet.

Often times, I have patients call to ask – ‘can I even DO low FODMAP as a vegetarian or vegan?’ or they try to do it on their own, and end up really struggling to get enough nutrition in.

While the low FODMAP diet is limiting, you can absolutely get enough nutrition, and protein in on a low FODMAP vegetarian or vegan diet.
