Thai Coconut Soup

Posted on

This is one of my foolproof, quick and easy, ultimate FODMAP recipes. It’s kind of saved my life since starting this diet as I know that everything in it is allowed and you can chop and change the ingredients depending on what you fancy! This recipe normally makes 2 huge bowls (you could probably get […]

My FODMAP Journey – Weeks 5 & 6

Posted on

Over halfway through the FODMAP elimination stage and although I am feeling good tummy-wise (minus the few exceptions where I’ve not stuck to things 100%) I’m starting to find I’m getting really frustrated with it all! Luckily I have a very understanding and supportive husband so meal times at home aren’t an issue as all […]

The thought of going to the gym and the whole sport bit fills me with dread! I have never been a sporty person and have never been interested in sport, even my PE teachers in school used to make fun of how hopeless I was! But as a 28 year old woman, you get to […]
