After arriving home from a fun, energizing, and inspiring conference weekend in Chicago yesterday afternoon Brian and I are saying show me the veggies!
While traveling, trying new restaurants, and eating out-of-the-ordinary foods is exciting (and delicious!) there is something so comforting about coming home and eating the foods my body craves…like this low FODMAP Chickpea Burrito Bowl!

Brian and I spent the weekend in Chicago rubbing elbows with orthodontists from all over the country and learning all about marketing an ortho practice. The topics discussed could be transferred to many different businesses and industries, so it was easy for me to fit right in with the crowd!
As we drove home, we talked about our to-do list for implementing what we learned at the conference, what we had going on for the week, and what to make for dinner that evening. Our dinner needed to be simple, fresh, flavorful, and packed with veggies…the Chickpea Burrito Bowl totally fit the bill!
Typically, beans are not considered low FODMAP, but when consumed in the appropriate portion size they can actually be ok!
According to the Monash University App, 1/4 cup of chickpeas is considered low FODMAP.
Chickpeas are a plant source of protein with a good amount of fiber, vitamins, and minerals like manganese, folate, copper, iron, phosphorus and zinc.
Because there are so many benefits to consuming beans, I try to find low FODMAP ways to incorporate them into my diet – but the most important thing is for you to listen to your body. If beans aren’t your thing you could easily use a taco marinated organic shredded or ground chicken here.
When preparing this recipe I like to think about it in four components:
Organizing my thoughts in this way allows me to get everything made without a ton of lag time in between so the rice and chickpeas stay warm.
Once each component is made, assemble your bowl or set out each component and allow for individual bowl building to occur. The choice is yours!low FODMAP Chickpea Burrito Bowl - Perfect for #MeatlessMonday! @FODYFoods #lowFODMAP Click To Tweet
