Breakfast al fresco. With temps ramping up to 30°+ all week decided to make the most of the cool morning breeze.
Last night I roasted an Hawaiian sweet potato (whiteish skin with white/purple flesh) so all I needed to do was chop it up and add to a pan of homemade coconut milk with a kaffir lime leaf to warm through. Some semi thawed frozen blueberries were added to warm too and then plated and topped with fresh pawpaw and homemade coconut chips.
Making sure I got my greens in I made a @healinggreenbroth of chicken bone broth, spinach, rocket, parsley, coriander and lemon thyme, avocado oil, lemon juice and salt
Coconut Turmeric Soup - 3 cans coconut milk (2 lite, 1 regular)
- 4 oz chicken broth - 2 stalks lemongrass, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1 tsp turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp crushes red pepper - 1/2 a jalapeño, seeds omitted - 2 large pieces of ginger - 3 tbsp coconut aminos - Juice of 2 limes
- 2 pinches salt
1. Bring the above ingredients to a boil then immediately reduce to simmer for 30 minutes-1 hour before adding other ingredients. - 4 small red potatoes
- 2.5 lbs chicken thigh - 1 cup carrots
2. Boil the above ingredients separately until all are cooked then add to your simmering coconut broth. - 1 stalk green onions - 2 tomatoes - 1 cup mushrooms - 2 cups kale
3. Add the above ingredients to your soup and let cook until all green has wilted. TIP: add tomatoes and mushrooms first, wait 10 minutes, then add kale and green onions.
That’s it! #FanfyAF and only three steps!
Nothing beats a classic brunch on a Sunday with my gal pal: today's brunch was from Reunion & Co in Richmond. I opted for something a little different and got the trout with a poached egg, kale, tomatoes and quinoa. Very delicious and fresh tasting!
Din din. NY strip, tostones, salad, & mini peppers. Trying the peppers again; I'm not totally sure it was them making my pain worse the last time I tried to reintroduce them [it was humid & humidity makes it worse]. Also I was going to get ketchup but then I read the label & my world came crashing down at the grocery store [I forgot ketchup has onion & garlic, some super duper high-FODMAP veggies 😭]. That reintro will have to wait until I know I'm in the clear with my SIBO. In any case, dinner was 👌. #becausetostones#aipreintro#lowFODMAP#SIBO#IBS#paleo#grassfedbeef#steak#tostones#tostonesiloveyou#threequartersveggies
This warm weather means all I want to eat is SALAD! 🥗
Hence this plant-based, delish salad for lunch today. Included:
Rocket, lettuce, Tuscan kale
Grated carrot, tomato, red capsicum
Cucumber, roast beetroot, @hilbilbyculturedfood fire tonic and nori 🥑 healthy fats from avocado and EVOO
Complex carbs and protein from some millet cooked in @meadowmarrowbonebroth curry bone broth (trying millet for the first time, doesn't go too badly!) and a side of seed bread with homemade sibo-friendly pâté
Seed bread and pâté recipes are on the website just use the search function and you're set!
A year ago today I went into hospital and had my first ever colonoscopy done. I woke up in the operating room to my specialist telling me he had found signs of Crohn’s but they had to send off the biopsies to be sure. I immediately burst into tears and told him I couldn’t wait another couple of weeks to get better. As a response, he told me to download the @monashfodmap app and start following the low FODMAP diet. Within 2 weeks my symptoms had improved dramatically. Now, 1 year down the track. I feel healthier and happier than ever. This diet has given me my life back and allowed me to go back to work, study, socialising and just living like a (relatively) normal 21 year old. I managed to reintroduce a few foods along the way, but I never broke the diet once. I am a firm believer in fodmaps for IBS and owe my life to the hard working researchers and scientists who discovered them.
One of my best friend went above and beyond by surprising me with a present and a sparkler in my fodmap brunch, and my family is taking me out for dinner. Never felt so blessed ❤️ #lowfodmap#lowfodmapfood#lowfodmapdiet#lowfodmapfriendly#glutenfree#wheatfree#lactosefree#lowlactose#dairyfree#fructosefree#fructosefriendly#fodmaplife#fodmapfriendly#fodmapliving#ibs#ibd#ibsdiet#ibddiet#crohns#crohnsdisease#ibsd#sibo
This is partly a lie, I actually love food.
What I hate is what effect some foods do to my body.
I haven't treated my body too kindly, I've been inconsistent with my eating, sometimes eating low fodmap, sometimes not.
I don't want to be held prisoner by food, having to be the 'fussy one' when I'm going out so I think "fuck it" and I'll eat normal bread and other high fodmap foods without a care..... and because normal food is delicious.
I lead a busy lifestyle so I don't want to spend shitloads of time chained to the kitchen preparing my food and to be honest, there's only so many carrot sticks and rice crackers someone can eat for a snack on the run.
I went through a period of skipping meals because it became too hard but love food too much to keep that up.
I think I need a chef. 🤔

T H A I B E E F S K E W E R S // I've recently transitioned from #whole30 to a whole30 #lowFODMAP protocol along with some new supplements as another attempt to remedy my skin issues, which I talk about on my blog. This protocol is very restrictive and I've struggled to commit strictly to it the first few days, but I'm home from some recent travels and spending the day batch cooking so I don't feel lost in the kitchen! For lunch today I made some Thai Beef Skewers and they are full of flavor and hit the spot!
1 1/2 lbs. ground grass-fed beef
1/4 c each - minced basil, green onions, mint, and cilantro
Zest of 1 lime
1 1/2 tbsp coconut aminos
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp coconut flour
Mix all ingredients and form into logs. Gently place on a skewer and grill about 7 minutes per side.
I served it with a simple salad of romaine, radishes, cucumbers, mint, cilantro and a cilantro lime dressing.
Who fancies some easy Sunday baking?! 🙋🏼
How about these Chocolate Cookie Tarts! 🍫 The base is a mix between a cookie and pastry then they are filled with a delicious coconut milk custard.
As usual the recipe is #glutenfree#lowfodmap#refinedsugarfree and also #vegan . You can find it on my blog (www.nutritiouslynaughty.co.uk/chocolate-cookie-tarts) 💜
Oh it's Autumn alright, why fight it?! So bring on the stews.
Tonight we're having Irish lamb stew with mashed potato and green beans. My mother-in-law doesn't like to eat lamb but I conveniently forget all about it every time I plan and cook for meals when they come to visit. For the second time, she didn't only enjoy it, she enjoyed it so much that she had seconds and thirds. I must be doing something right.

Don't know what I did wrong. Tried to make gluten free gnocchi and all was good until it was done boiling. Slowly on the plate they started to stick together, and when I then threw them into the pan they then turned into a mush, or one large soggy gnocchi. 😂😝Does anyone have any good advise, or perhaps a fail-proof recipe? #lowfodmap#whatvegansdonteat#fail#gnocchi#vegan
Breakfast [& my husband's breakfast]. 🍳
I have 2 @vitalfarms eggs with zucchini & carrots, 3 slices @applegate bacon, a low-FODMAP serving of banana [1/3 of a ripe one], & grapes. 🍇
He has 3 eggs, 5 pieces bacon, a smashed potato ala @fedandfit, the rest of the banana, & grapes. My husband is 6'7" & very active. He needs lots of food. I am a foot shorter & not so active at the moment. My thyroid is still being tinkered with but I think I have enough energy to start exercising again. That might happen this weekend. 😉 💪
I also think I'm going to try reintroducing potatoes & tomatoes soon [tomatoes because I want ketchup, ya mean?]. I'm not really an egg person, but if I had some ketchup I would've been all over them! Nightshades can be really problematic for those with autoimmunity & are notorious for being a difficult group of foods to reintroduce, so we shall see how I do. 🍳
Also trying out a new supplement today, because if I learned anything from the Elemental Diet, it's that I'm not absorbing fat well at all. Time to support the gallbladder, methinks.
Grain free, sugar free, egg free paleo pancakes 🥞!!!! Though I only had a couple bites because I noticed I put too much tapioca flour in it, and it was too starchy for my gut. More for my boyfriend, who really enjoyed them! Ps: they're green because of the stevia 😉
So this is the latest breakfast post ever because I was in a rush to go out this morning, but it was too good not to share! 😍
I had my favourite #glutenfree chocolate protein porridge (recipe on the blog: www.nutritiouslynaughty.co.uk) I used @thatprotein cacao vegan protein, @creativenaturesuperfoods maca powder and cacao nibs, @koro_uk peanut butter and @cocofinacoconut grated coconut 💜
