Planning a Low-FODMAP barbecue with Fody

Imagine this: it’s late, but the sun is still up. You can smell fresh-cut grass and charcoal. The sound of laughter and the sizzle of burgers on the grill floats on the warm air. It’s a classic backyard BBQ, and if you’re following a low-FODMAP diet, don’t worry–it’s within reach. Summer’s here, and it’s easy to plan the perfect low-FODMAP barbecue with a little help from Fody. 

How to plan a gut-friendly barbecue this summer

Before you get to the picturesque part–a lush green back yard dotted with colourful cushions or lawn chairs, with fairy lights twinkling under the trees–you’ve got to do some planning. Luckily, figuring out how to host a barbecue for people with dietary restrictions isn’t complicated.

Whether you’re planning a low-FODMAP backyard barbecue because of your own gut sensitivity or because you’re going to be hosting guests with dietary restrictions, your considerations will be similar. If you’re planning a menu for people with sensitive guts, start by reaching out to your friends to get the full picture–and it’s a good idea to think more broadly than just gathering bloat-free recipes.

How to plan a menu for dietary restrictions 

  • Determine whether your guests have sensitivities or allergies. This may affect the menu you provide; is it enough to keep ingredients separate and provide alternatives, or are there ingredients that you should avoid serving entirely?
  • When you’re planning to host people with dietary restrictions, it’s a good idea to find out if any of your guests have cultural, ethical or religious restrictions that you can accommodate in your planning.
  • Once you’ve determined which restrictions you’re dealing with, plan your gut-friendly and sensitive recipes accordingly. There are inclusive barbecue options for everyone–for example, even if you have friends who mainly consume plant-based low-FODMAP foods, there are ways to ensure they can enjoy your menu along with everyone else! 
  • When you’re grocery shopping for your gut-friendly backyard bash, make sure to check the ingredients and nutritional facts on the food you buy! To learn more about reading ingredients lists to make sure food is low-FODMAP, check out this post.

Once you’ve got your low-FODMAP barbecue menu prepared, all that’s left to do is put it together–and of course, to decorate and create a magical ambiance for your perfect backyard party.
