I love summer but towards the end of it, I’m looking forward to change. The change in the air temperature, a slight hint at first. The leaves – oh the leaves are the best! Red, yellow and orange leaves to marvel at and crunchy brown leaves to step on. We begin to move into the earthy foods of fall, soups and all things pumpkin. Here are some IBS & SIBO friendly recipes to choose from to make your fall cozy and delicious!
You can start the morning off right with a Pumpkin Spice Latte or this Apple Cider Vinegar and Ginger Tea. These Bacon Acorn Squash Patties look equally yummy for breakfast or as an anytime of the day side dish. And remember bone broth makes a great on-the-go breakfast. If you prefer a sweet treat for breakfast, try these Caramel Glazed Donuts. I’m sure they’re delicious any time of year, but caramel always makes me think of fall. This Pumpkin Bread also looks very breakfast worthy. And if you sometimes eat cake for breakfast (ahem, it’s just a now and then thing for me!), my Banana Ginger Spice Cake could be just right. Sausage and Sweet Potato hash made with Maple Sage Breakfast Sausage on page 81 and 82 of The SIBO Diet Plan will also be in my fall breakfast rotation. Why not make a big batch of the breakfast sausages and freeze some for a busy weekday morning?
If you’re a soup person, it might be time for some comforting Chicken and Rice Soup on page 95 of the The SIBO Diet Plan, the Sweet Potato Chili on page 97 or a warming Curried Carrot Soup. For something a bit heartier, try Beef Stew. It can be made with bone broth to make it more nutrient dense. Slow Cooker Butter Chicken is easy to make and a wonderful warm dinner to come home to after a long day. And if you didn’t have time to make the SIBO friendly stuffing for Thanksgiving last year, maybe you should test it out early! Another Thanksgiving worthy side dish is this Pecan Glazed Butternut Squash Pudding. Or is this Twice Baked Delicata Squash your side dish of choice? Butternut squash lasagna is also a fall favorite and great to take to a potluck or event to make sure you have something yummy to eat. If you’re up for a small side salad, top it with delicious Pumpkin Pie Pepitas, which are an equally tasty snack.
Last but not least – desserts! If you tolerate pumpkin, try Pumpkin Caramel Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pudding or Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Vanilla Cinnamon Icing! Not a pumpkin fan? Try this Dairy Free Carrot Cake Pudding for a fall flavored treat. I think a spoonful of my Autumn Spice Nut Butter also makes a delicious treat.
I hope these recipes get you off to a great start to the autumn season. If you’re feeling stuck in your diet or need some overall IBS or SIBO support, please feel free to schedule an appointment. Happy Fall!
