Low FODMAP Roots

Root vegetables are plant roots that are enjoyed as vegetables.  Although most people refer to all vegetables grown under grown as root vegetables, in order to be a true root the plant must be tuberous root and taproot.

Carrots, rutabagas, turnips, parsnips, beets and sweet potatoes are some of the true root vegetables. Although yams and sweet potatoes are often considered one in the same, yams are tubers and are not consider a true root.  For a kick of Vitamin C, A, B and fiber, consider adding these fruits of the earth to your weekly grocery list. {FODMAPers carrots, turnips and Potato are low in FODMAPs while sweet potato and beets have moderate amounts and should be enjoyed in small quantity!}

Turnips- This round root with the purple top is terrific when boiled and mashed like potatoes. The flesh of a turnip can be white or yellow.  Peel the turnip before cooking.  It can also be chopped and added to any stew or soup.  Do not cook turnips in an aluminum/iron pot as the anthoxanthins, in their skin leave the turnip looking grey.  A half-cup of cooked turnips offers 2 grams of fiber, Vitamin C and a measly 15 Calories.
