4 Step Dinner!

Need an easy 4 step meal to put together…that’s gluten-free, dairy-free and low FODMAP?? Good news, I made one! The nice people over at Modern Table Meals we’re kind enough to send me a box of their plant  protein penne pasta to try out and it was really good! I’m a big fan of chickpea pasta but this is a great alternative (made from lentils, white rice and pea protein). 

Here are your steps to making this protein packed meal!

1. Choose a #glutenfree pasta. I obviously chose Modern Table but use your favorite. Prepare per directions and scoop yourself out 1 cup.

2. Drizzle some olive oil on when finished because #healthyfats 

3. Top with Maple Dijon shredded chicken. I made it in the crockpot and it is . Check the link in my profile for the recipe . Not into chicken? You can definitely use this sauce on top of fish or just use it dress up your pasta and veggies  🥦 🥬 

4. Add some broccoli! Did you know you can still eat 🥦 on the #lowfodmapdiet ? You just need to keep it to 3/4 cup or less. Not a broccoli fan? This would be AWESOME with arugula or baby kale thrown in!

Maple Dijon Chicken Recipe


3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup dijon mustard

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/4 tsp dried thyme

salt and pepper, to taste


Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cook on high heat for 6 hours (or low heat for 8-10). Stir occasionally. Shred chicken with fork after 4-5 hours. Enjoy!

What’s your favorite #plantbased pasta? Tell me about it!
