Satisfy your burger cravings with this bowl that is low-carb and low-FODMAP approved! This recipe is full of lean ground beef, turkey bacon, shredded cheese, and a big bed of lettuce. The beauty of this meal is that it is super easy and completely personalizable to your needs. If you have IBS, you might have certain foods that are triggers which are unique to you, so feel free to add or subtract things to fit your diet better!
If you prefer regular bacon to turkey bacon you can make this substitution. An important thing to remember about this recipe is that it is higher in fat if you use regular bacon and burger sauce. Please be mindful of your food triggers and customize this bowl to your needs.
In patients who have IBS and stick to a low-FODMAP diet, you can easily add brown rice to add fiber and healthy carbohydrates. Adding a serving of brown rice adds 3.5 grams of fiber! Regular potatoes are also a great source of fiber adding 4 grams for one serving. Another strategy would be pairing this lunch with 1 cup of low-FODMAP fruit for a sweet bite that will keep your gut healthy and happy!
Season the ground beef with salt, pepper, and a small amount of olive oil while cooking. You can amplify this by adding some cooked turkey bacon bits, but be aware of the extra fat.
Low-FODMAP Burger Sauce:
1/2 cup avocado oil mayo
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp low-FODMAP pickles

1/2 tsp salt
Maple syrup or liquid stevia to taste

Shredded cheddar cheese

Onions (omit for low-FODMAP or if you are sensitive to Fructans)
