Food transparency

Restaurants are definitely getting better and better at marking up menu’s, with it now being pretty much standard to mark up gluten free and vegetarian options (thank god!). However when your food intolerances expand to anything further it can be a lot trickier. Following a low FODMAP diet and being highly gluten intolerant (I haven’t been tested for coeliac disease as too scared about having to ingest gluten prior to the test!) my main triggers…

New year, slightly more excitable me

So I started writing this post on 8th January. It’s now 24th so my goals aren’t going quite as well as planned but I’ve finally caught up with work, house jobs and life admin so I’m posting this now anyway despite being late to the party… Happy New Year! Not to say I couldn’t have sat on the sofa eating cheeseboards (lactose free of course) whilst watching the Game of Thrones for a few weeks…

Sticky soy salmon and aubergine

Sticky salmon is one of my favourite go-to’s, and after rediscovering my love for aubergine in my cheesy aubergine bake the other week, I stumbled across an amazing recipe by the food medic. I tweaked the recipe to make it FODMAP friendly and added in a couple of extra bits and this is what I came up with… a delicious sweet, sticky soy fish and vegetable dish! Recipe-ingredients – 1 aubergine – 2 salmon fillets…

Overnight oats

Going to the gym before work means that I eat breakfast at my desk, which limits me a little in terms of choices. I usually go through two-moth cycles of eating a certain breakfast until I get bored of it, but overnight oats is always the one I come back to. They’re super-quick to prep, easy to eat on the go and absolutely delicious! I also love that you can vary them up using different…

Aubergine and mozzarella bake

This is one of my almost forgotten mid-week favourites! I used to cook it weekly but it somehow made it off of my regular rota. It’s the ideal dish to eat as the star role with salad, or team with meat, fish or potato to bulk it out. It’s a dish that takes you minutes to prepare on a Monday and one that you have enough to add to your meals for days – ideal…

Mind vs tummy

Dealing with the physical side effects of having a gut disorder is hard enough, but I personally find that dealing with the mental side can often be just as hard, if not harder. Searching online, it’s surprising how hard it is to find information and support on this. There’s so many great websites with recipes and advice on what and what not to eat but not actually that much around the stress and anxiety that…

Seafood linguine

Spaghetti has always been my favourite, ever since I was little! Lucky for me, gluten free spaghetti has got better and better over the years; and teamed with a rich home-made tomatoey sauce along with every type of seafood I can get my hands on, it’s one of my favourite Friday night treats (along with a glass of red wine of course)! Seafood wise, I usually go for a frozen bag of baby scallops along…

My top 5 low FODMAP foodie swaps

When first reading the endless  list of high FODMAP foods I was convinced I was going to be living a life of tasteless food forever. Previously throwing in as many cloves of garlic, onions and mushrooms into every dish I cooked I felt very overwhelmed and confused at what I actually could eat However, over the years I’ve learnt that being low in FODMAP doesn’t mean low in taste and with a few swaps and…
