i use a very similar recipe but you can also add some small cubes of butternut squash or substitute the squash for the carrots....also if u think the carrots may be a problem just grate one or two of them to thicken the mix and then they are easier to digest.
This one is a great FODMAP free recipe.Great for the whole family or divide into a number seal able plastic containers to freeze for instant lunches.Thick Lemon Chicken Soup with Rice, Carrots, Potatoes & Celery.
Simmer chicken in 2-3 litres of water,until flesh is falling off the bone.Let cool and remove chicken from stock.Skim chicken fat off the top of the stock.Remove chicken flesh from the skin and bones and return pieces to stock.If evaporated add more water to the stock.Add rice, potatoes, celery, carrots, salt & pepper, cover, and simmer on low heat until vegetables are tender but firm (maybe 10 -15 mins).Beat an egg in a bowl and add juice from half a squeezed lemon.Very slowly add a ladle full of the chicken stock into the egg mixture whilst stirring.Do this slowly otherwise the egg mixture may curdle (cooling the stock will help).Very slowly add the egg/lemon/stock mixture into the chicken soup whilst continuously stirring (soup will turn cloudy and will have a unique tangy flavor).Taste and adjust seasoning (salt, pepper).Serve hot with an optional sprig of parsley.Freezing portions into microwavable containers is a great idea for instant future meals.Great for your budget as well.And importantly FODMAP free.If you're uncomfortable with carrots, then remove from recipe or persevere.As your gut normalizes (FODMAP free)over time, you might find you can handle more foods.Also many find raw carrots to be a problem but are OK when carrots are cooked.

Hi S.By negative, do you mean you were cleared of lactose intolerance?If you were cleared it should mean you are clear to eat dairy & lactose.Having said that l'd like to make the following comments.About 11 years ago I was referred to an allergy specialist.He cleared me of have a lactose allergy, as well as many other foods, but in his tunnel vision he didn't make the distinction between allergy and intolerance.He cut off a critical avenue of exploration and left me to suffer for a number of years.I since discovered that we can have intolerance even though we may not have an allergy.I've also just learned that we can have an intolerance of gluten even if we are not cealiac.If you have been cleared of a lactose intolerance I would make these comments.1. During the gas tests I was advised that some produce hydrogen gas, some produce methane gas & others produce both. I would ask your health provider: Were they screening for both hydrogen & methane?2. There are no tests available for the other FODMAP foods, Fructans, Isolmalt, Xylitol, Maltitol, Sorbitol, & Mannitol (Polyols) & Galacto-Oligosaccarides (GOS). If you gain stability (reduced symptoms) living FODMAP free, you can reintroduce these foods gradually to see whether they are a problem to you.3. If you have no other avenues of exploration and your symptoms are impacting on your life, is it worth trying to live FODMAP free for an appreciable period to determine whether it can help you?4. If the gas test was not conclusive in terms of lactose intolerance, could you be one of the few who are intolerant but just don't produce gas?Good luck with your journey and coming to terms with these questions.
