Sweeteners – not so sweet?

I don’t think I’ve always had an issue with sweeteners, it seemed to come to the surface when I was on the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet. My tummy was happier than it had been in a long time as I was avoiding lots of hard-to-digest foods and drinks until one day I […]

Exercising with IBS

Sweet potato, spinach and onion fritters

Fullgreen and Hip & Healthy challenged us to create a dish with their Sweet Potato Vegi Rice at the Allergy Show this year. I love these packets of rice as they’re so handy if you’re in a rush or don’t really feel like cooking but they’re also so versatile and there are so many things […]

Chocolate orange shortbread – Pacari chocolate

Happy World Chocolate Day! To celebrate, I made this really simple, gluten free and vegan shortbread. I’m Scottish so obviously love a bit of shortbread! For this recipe, I used the Pacari orange chocolate but you could pretty much use any flavour for this! I’ll definitely be trying out some other flavours because it’s so […]
