Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I always try different diets/ways of eating (within reason), so I have first hand knowledge of what it does to your body.

Lately I've been following a SCD, low-FODMAP diet and I am not going to lie, it isn't overly easy.

Honestly I have been eating similar things over and over again so figured that it was time to develop my own recipes. I found that there are a few good resources online, but it is pretty limited so when I develop a recipe that follows these recommendations I will post it.

This is what I had for lunch the past few days.

Ginger Chicken on lettuce wraps so they don't have carbohydrates to follow the SCD diet.

Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Serves 2


1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

1 Carrot (Diced)

1 Yellow or Green Zucchini (Diced)

1 Red Pepper

1 Inch Piece Grated Ginger

2 Tsp Coconut Aminos (More than 5 grams per serving is not low FODMAP)

Salt and Pepper to Taste

1 Tbsp Avocado Oil

2 Green Onions (Chopped - Green Part Only, white is high FODMAP)

8 pieces of romaine or other lettuce


Wash and dice the chicken, carrots, zucchini, green onions and red pepper. Grate the Ginger.

On medium-low heat heat up a frying pan with the avocado oil. Add the diced carrots and peppers as they take the longest to cook.

Add the diced chicken and zucchini.

Cook until the vegetables are soft and the chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Add the coconut aminos and salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from the heat and spoon on the lettuce leaves. Top with the green onion (you can also add this to the end of cooking to have a less onion taste.
