Citrus fruits can be eaten by those of us who have fructose intolerance or are on a low FODMAP diet. So I have gathered together from friends a collection of recipes which contain them. We all know that they contain a heap of vitamin C and to eat them when you feel a cold coming on but you probably have no idea that they are low in fructose unlike apples, cherries, mangoes, pears and watermelon, which are dynamite for me. In these guest recipes, there are a few things it would be better to leave out to keep them low FODMAP friendly. I will mention these after each recipe.
Orange Chicken from An Organic Wife – Use maple syrup instead of honey and tapioca flour instead of wheat flour.
Lemon & Herb Spatchcocked Chicken from Honey Ghee and Me – Leave out the shallots.
Orange Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Root Veggies from A Happy Health Nut – Leave out the garlic and use a little garlic-infused oil.
Creamy lemon Chicken from Divine Health from the Inside Out – Leave out the garlic and use a little garlic-infused oil.
Lemon Roasted Halibut from Delicious Obsessions – Leave out the garlic and onion powders and use a little garlic-infused oil.
Citrus Rosemary Salad from Jaro Honey
Shrimp with Lemon, White Wine and Spinach by The Clean Dish – Leave out the garlic and shallots and use a little garlic-infused oil.

Luscious Lemon Bars from Divine Health from the Inside Out – Replace the honey with maple syrup and only have a small piece because of the high almond content.
