Paella Party!

Paella has always been one of my favourite dishes and I remember as a kid my Dad would make the biggest batch of the stuff in the summer; making it in his giant paella dish in the garden whilst listening to reggae music (I know, not a Spanish tradition but he made it work!). 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…

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…

My go-to dinner party pulled pork recipe!

Pulled pork has always been a bit of an obsession of mine, but since having to follow the low FODMAP diet it makes it almost impossible to eat it when out due to the BBQ sauce they usually serve it with (garlic, onion and gluten packed!). So a year or so a go I decided to create my own tummy friendly version and have never looked back! Being slow cooked in the oven from anywhere…

Iberogast Review

I first discovered Iberogast when I was on a weekend city break in Barcelona. Although I was very careful eating out, I spent a lot of my time there feeling very sick and fairly bloated. At the time I was taking a prescribed antihistamine; cyclizine hydrochloride to help with the nausea (which did actually work brilliantly) however unfortunately I ran out whilst away. 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!…
