Meal Planning: A SIBO Recipe Roundup

by | Apr 19, 2023 | Nutrition

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and been asked to follow a specific protocol in an effort to help calm symptoms down—we’ve got you. It is absolutely normal to feel overwhelmed, not knowing where to start. Quite a few patients that I have worked with have completed this protocol with great success. It all starts with having solid recipes to reach for while being prepared in the kitchen with SIBO compliant ingredients on hand.

Why a SIBO specific diet?

The purpose of a SIBO diet is to temporarily reduce the amount of fermentable carbohydrates in your diet and help improve your SIBO symptoms. By temporarily reducing or removing fermentable foods that your bacteria love to eat, you reduce the amount of gas they produce, therefore reducing the symptoms you feel while simultaneously treating the overgrowth and healing the gut.

Check out this SIBO specific meal plan roundup (categorized by meal type) that will make your life a lot easier while following the SIBO diet!

A caveat for our SIBO patients: low FODMAP is one way we treat SIBO. We also use the SIBO Specific Diet, which is more restrictive than low FODMAP, so your doctor may recommend that route, depending on your health history. As with any treatment plan, consulting with your doctor is the best first step.
