Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two {Low FODMAP}

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two {Low FODMAP}

Sometimes you don’t realize how much you love something until you can’t have it anymore. This is what happened with me and chocolate chip cookies. I never ate cookies with what one would call “frequency,” but as soon as I went wheat free, I started craving them like crazy…

Meatballs with Brava Sauce

Meatballs with Brava Sauce

So, I started a low FODMAP guide to Spain last week, which I’m really excited about, but considering I’m still not done (and may have decided halfway through to re-structure everything)… I figured I’d share a Spain-inspired recipe instead. Otherwise it’ll end up being weeks before I post anything…

PIZZAAAAAAAA! Y’all should know by now that pizza is my love language. I think I’ve posted more pictures of pizza to Instagram than anything else. (Look, even one of my earliest pictures was of pizza.) …

Low FODMAP Protein Bars

Low FODMAP Protein Bars

It’s been a minute since I posted a recipe, so I took some quick pics of these protein bars I’ve been making to share with y’all today! This recipe is a long time coming, as I’ve actually been making some variation of these bars for YEARS, and I feel super guilty for not sharing them earlier because they’re a daily staple for me. But, true to Maria fashion…

Cinnamon Walnut Protein Granola

Cinnamon Walnut Protein Granola

I have a deep and abiding love for granola. This protein granola recipe was the first recipe I ever posted on the blog, and I have continued to make it once a week (well, mostly – there are definitely weeks where I never make it to Trader Joe’s to replenish my oat supply or something of the sort)…

New to FODMAPs?
Start here.

FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates — AKA a part of some foods (like apples, wheat, and beans) that ferment in the gut, causing stomach pain and bloating. If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS or just feel miserable every time you eat, the low FODMAP diet might be for you!

Side Effects of Birth Control — Facts vs Myths

If you start looking, you’ll find conflicting opinions about birth control everywhere. Some corners of the internet will tell you that hormonal birth control (“HBC”) is “bad” and you shouldn’t be putting synthetic hormones in your body. Or maybe your doctor has told you that it will fix your acne…

Guide to Eating Low FODMAP in Downtown Austin

Keeping on the topic of long-overdue posts, I figured it was time to actually write a guide to the city I have lived in for going on 4.5 years. In fact, as Marc so kindly reminded me last week, I’ve been talking about writing a travel guide to Austin since…

Guide to Eating low FODMAP in Florence

Welcome to the GMGH guide to eating low FODMAP in Florence! Or should we say, eating FODMAP conscious – there was a lot of gelato consumed by yours truly… I’m going to divide this guide up into two parts — one for things to do, and one for food. Because the food deserves a post all of its own. 😂 I’ll share all the places we ate in Florence this time, as well as some tips for how to eat FODMAP conscious in Italy!

Spain Travel Guide

Alright, brace yourselves for a long post! About a month ago (?!!), Marc and I took a 10-day trip to Spain, and today I’m sharing all things we ate and my tips for traveling in Spain on the low FODMAP diet…

Hey there!

I’m Maria, here at Go Messy or Go Hungry I share how what we put in our bodies can make us feel our best. After I was diagnosed with IBS in 2014, I knew I had to share what I learned with more people. At GMGH you’ll find tasty recipes, travel guides, and easy to understand articles about gut and hormone health.

Oh, and if I’m cooking, you can bet my kitchen is a mess (but at least I won’t go hungry)!
