FODMAP Reintroduction – Week 1

Okay, so now I’m settled back into normality after holidays etc., I can catch up again a bit here! 🙂 before I start, I just want to mention that I am in no way nutritionally-trained (yet!) so if you have any doubts about FODMAP, please speak to you GP or a dietician! I’m just sharing […]

My FODMAP Journey – Weeks 7 & 8

So I’m a bit late in posting this but better late than never! Last couple of weeks on the elimination part of FODMAP and I’m going to be as strict as I can as I’ve had a few tummy issues over the past week or so (not been nearly as well behaved as I should […]

My FODMAP Journey – Weeks 5 & 6

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!

Facing the gym monster!

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 […]

My FODMAP Journey – Week 1

Had a particularly rough couple of weeks belly-wise so I’ve decided to give this FODMAP diet a proper try!  Feeling quite excited about starting the diet if I’m honest. I’ve done loads of reading on it, have a pretty good idea (finally!) of what I should and shouldn’t be eating and I’ve done my first […]

My 28th Birthday!

Yes I know, I’m so old!! 😉 But I definitely believe that you’re only as old as you feel! I was actually really looking forward to my birthday this year until I ended up in bed with the flu which kind of put a dampener on it all! However, even though I wasn’t feeling 100%, […]

My Love/Hate Relationship with Food

Vegetable pakora and spicy dipping sauce was my food of choice… at 3 years old… I’ve never been a stranger to a plate piled high with food and tried (mostly successfully) to beat my record of how many roasted spuds I could eat every Sunday evening but that all changed about 4 years ago. I […]
