SIBO staple salad

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.

That’s lunch!
