Cucumber Bites With Blueberries and Cheddar

4 WWPP Posted by 3 years ago 0 Comments

Getting creative in the snack department was a big factor in my initial 70-pound weight loss and now that I’m attempting to eat low-FODMAP, I’m rediscovering its powers. There’s just something totally satisfying about preparing a snack than grabbing something quick (that I always end up regretting) out of the pantry.

Before I went grocery shopping this weekend I rummaged through my fridge and pantry for low-FODMAP friendly options. I came up with:

  • Cucumber Bites with Blueberries and CheddarCucumber — On all safe lists I can find.
  • Sharp Cheddar (Thanks to Cabot who sent me samples of THIS — OMG) — No lactose.
  • Frozen blueberries — All lists say safe in modest quantities.
  • Sunflower seeds  — All lists say safe in modest quantities.

I put them together to make a plate of awesome! Sometimes the simplest things are the most satisfying.

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 mini cucumber, sliced
  • 1 oz sharp cheddar cheese, sliced thin
  • About 1/4 cup frozen blueberries (1 per cucumber slice)
  • About 1 tsp sunflower seeds (5g)
  • Dried basil and mint for sprinkling

Top the cucumber slices with the cheese and a frozen blueberry. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds and herbs.

Let it sit for 10 minutes so the blueberries defrost a bit and then squish them down gently with your finger.

Enjoy! It’s like the love child of a salad and cheese and crackers. So fun!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
