Greek Shrimp Scampi

Since my last post, we have managed to determine that me and the kids all have low thyroid hormone (sprinkling kelp granules over our food to try and boost it naturally so I can get off Armour). We are also all allergic to polyester and maybe some other fabrics/dyes as well (let me tell you polyester is REALLY hard to avoid!!!!! We are learning VERY quickly how to be less materialistic!!!), and we all have Fructose Malabsorption and need to be eating foods that are low in FODMAPS (aka it’s a special diet created by Monash University in Australia). On the bright side, these changes seem to have cleared up John’s rash issues, AND he is no longer peeing through his diaper and sheets every night (YAY!!!!)! Also, I can now actually make a list of the meats/veggies we CAN’T eat instead of a list of the meats/veggies we CAN eat! All other categories of food are still a bit of a mess, but that’s real progress from where we were (although we do still have a ways to go as well)!! During all of this, I also managed to come up with a new recipe that I think is FABULOUS (and it’s also Paleo, Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, low Fodmaps, Yeast Diet, etc etc etc safe)!!!!!!


Greek Shrimp Scampi over Spaghetti Squash pre low fodmaps diet (mushrooms are not ok anymore)

Greek Shrimp Scampi

1 pound Shrimp
Pasta (I use 1 roasted spaghetti squash)
Juice from one lemon
1/3 cup garlic infused olive oil (how to do it yourself)
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1.5 tsp salt
Chopped green onions
Sliced black olives
**I think sliced mushrooms and some sun dried tomatoes would be excellent additions, but they are not low fodmaps or nightshade free so they are out for us.
Combine all ingredients except pasta in a skillet and saute until shrimp are cooked. Serve over pasta, perhaps with a side of green beans (or broccoli if you aren’t low Fodmaps)
