Here it is! My favorite SIBO salad. I have to admit, this started with inspiration from Healing Histamine.
I’m my SIBO salad I add:
- 1-2c Arugula
- A thin slice of red onion, minced
- Half a cucumber, diced
- Carrot, cut into sticks
- Hard boiled egg, diced
- 1-2T. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
- Dressing (when I couldn’t tolerate any dairy, I just put a little olive oil on top. Now that I tolerate it, I indulge in a buttermilk ranch dressing from wegmans.)
- Bacon, if I have any leftovers, crumbled on top.
This salad has a lot of things many of my other meals miss, Vitamin C, carotene, and magnesium to name a few. I love the bitter astringent arugula with the peppery red onion. The arugula is rumored to be good for being anti-histamine. Although I can’t find any supporting research, I know that this does calm down my stomach which is kind of surprising for a raw vegetable salad.
