A full English Breakfast is usually associated with a fatty, calorific, heavy meal. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Ingredients for 1 serving of a Low FODMAP lighter English Breakfast:
reduced fat pork sausage (look for one without onion, garlic, including powder, as well as gluten – it is not an easy find!).
1 large egg
1 leaf iceberg lettuce
97 g tomato
88 g cucumber
crunchy light corn bread, 1 piece (I hope that you can find something similar, it is gluten free and 26 kcal per piece).
Instructions for 1 serving of a Low FODMAP lighter English Breakfast:
Start frying the sausage, on a medium heat, using only 2-3 sprays of oil.
When sausage is nearly ready, probably after 8-10 minutes, depending on your sausage, crack 1 large egg in the pan as well, cover.
Cook egg to your liking, I like yolks still a bit soft.
In the meantime, was the vegetables and arrange a salad on the plate. Season, but do not add any dressing. Dressings and a lot more calories to the meal. If you are desperate, squeeze a bit of lemon juice.
