Pineapple Guacamole (Low FODMAP, AIP Paleo & Vegan)

This guacamole has a tropical twist using pineapples instead of tomatoes making this nightshade-free, using chives instead of onions makes this mild and low FODMAP so it’s easy to digest for everyone this summer!Β 

For the past few months, I’ve had to be on a low FODMAP diet after finding out I had SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), and yes – it is as glamorous as it sounds. Common symptoms of SIBO include constant bloating, vitamin deficiencies, malabsorption and poor digestion.Β So by going low FODMAP you can starve the bacteria that’s causing all this pain and see a reduction in symptoms. Together with antibiotics, a lot of patience and self love – it will start to clear up!

Personally, I’ve found that when deciding to go through these healing diets… your mind frame must be right as a very first step. Making a list of the food you CAN eat and just focusing on that to keep it positive creates a huge mind shift… finding creative ways to use these ingredients is a bit like an Iron Chef challenge to me at times.

Minus the timer and accidental kitchen fires… and judges, oh and Bobby Flay.

If you can look at the temporary eliminations and restrictions as tests of creativity, you start to notice you’re actually learning more and trying new things that you wouldn’t have tried. I’m happy to say that although I’m currently doing what anyone would consider two strict healing diets (low FODMAP and AIP), I’m in a much better frame of mind than when I initially tried because of my making peace with the situation and embracing all the new challenges ahead, choosing to learn from a place of love vs. fear or impatience or self-pity. And I look forward to when I can re-introduce some of my old faves like nuts, seeds, eggs, etc.Β If you’re curious about these diets for healing yourself from Autoimmune diseases or Digestive issues/infections, drop me a line or follow me on Instagram for more food inspiration!

  • Love your perspective, especially about focusing on all the goodness you can eat (like tropi-guac!) as opposed to the no list. Lol to the Bobby Flay part πŸ˜€ For me the first little while is always hard but once I can start to feel it working and my body being happier it’s not so hard anymore. Also would it be weird if I just ate this with a fork? A salad of sorts πŸ™‚

    • Thank you my darling!! Amen to that, gets easier as time passes haha… and no, I’ve eaten guac with a fork in public when they only give chips hahaha
