The FODMAP app you NEED to have!

When I first began the low FODMAP diet three or four years ago, my life revolved around printed tables, shopping list guides and articles on what I could and couldn’t eat. Just “popping into the shop for lunch” would take half the day of standing in the isles trying to Google the ingredients on everything I picked up. With so much (not always trustworthy) content online, and the research on the diet being continuously updated…

My top tips for a happy mind (and happier tum!)

Having a gut condition doesn’t just affect your physical health, but more than often it can have a pretty big impact on your mental health too. Not being able to eat what you want without rubbish consequences can be really frustrating, upsetting and often even embarrassing. Last year I suffered pretty badly with the mental side of things. I don’t think it was just due to my stomach problems at all, but it definitely didn’t…

I went to the pharmacy to ask if they had anything similar and…

Gluten and lactose free not quite carbonara carbonara

So after Nigella’s recent controversial carbonara recipe (apparently it is a seriously big crime to put cream in a carbonara) I’m definitely not claiming that this is an authentic Italian dish in the slightest. However, this is a recipe inspired my my dear old step-dad which was always his signature dish, and it was a perfect carb-heavy pre-half marathon meal!…

Bloatin ‘ell!

So it’s 1.30am and I’m lying here clutching a hot water bottle for dear life, trying to finish my sixth peppermint tea of the night. I have the half marathon in 8 hours and my stomach feels like it’s got a watermelon inside and all I want to do is pop it wish a pin and relieve some of this pain!…

Tuna courgette fritters are the perfect dinner for when your fridge is running low on stock or you simply can’t be bothered! They take about 10 mins in total and you can also pre-make for lunch-prep or even freeze to eat later! They’re also pretty bloody delicious!…
