Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp Salad
I am so excited to share this delicious FODMAP Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp Salad recipe. GutRx Gurus recipes are based on a low FODMAP plan. These recipes reduce a broad variety of naturally occurring carbohydrates that trigger gas, pain and bloating in those suffering from SIBO, IBS or other functional gut disorders.
What is FODMAP?
FODMAPs are short chain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols”. Although FODMAPs are naturally present in food and the human diet, FODMAP restriction has been found to improve symptom control in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID). Prior to the formation of the FODMAP concept, diet was seldom used as first line therapy for management of IBS and other FGID [source].
The recipe was contributed by GutRx Gurus recipe developer Indigo Mathewson, GutRx Gurus Chef.
