My Low FODMAP Fakeaway Chicken Kebabs!

Three years ago there wouldn’t have been much I loved more than tucking into a great big chicken kebab and large portion of cheesy chips after a night out. Or the excitement of picking up eight kebabs with extra red cabbage and halloumi; holding the delicious smelling packed up boxes on my lap on the drive back to a friend’s for a girly night in.

Turkish Inspired Feast!

Turkish food has also been a big love of mine (amongst food in general). When I was younger I was lucky enough that my mum and step-dad would take us to Turkey every year for our family holiday and it would be full of amazing food.

He’d fill it to the brim with seafood, chicken, chorizo, peas and lots of lemon and garlic and I used to…

My six positives of having IBS!

There’s a lot of sucky things about having IBS, and if you search online you’ll find plenty of lists of how IBS can affect you in a negative way. These lists have been so helpful to me; making me feel like I am not alone, and they can really help form a community of support. However, I think a little bit of positivity could be a good idea right now (let’s face it, this weather…

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…
