Gluten Free Berry and Apple Pie

Gluten Free Berry and Apple Pie

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed a lot of pies floating around on my stories recently. It was Marc’s birthday last week, and since pie is his absolute favorite dessert, I spent all day making him a pie and making a mess in the process…

If you follow me on instagram, it may seem like the only thing I’ve been eating for the past few weeks is summer veggies. And really, that’s not too far off…

How to Grill the Perfect Steak {guest post!}

How to Grill the Perfect Steak {guest post!}

Today we have a very special guest: my partner in crime (and in life): Marc! When Marc & I first started dating, I was a vegetarian who was terrified of raw meat, and had absolutely no appreciation for a good steak…

Easiest Low FODMAP Guacamole

Easiest Low FODMAP Guacamole

I know, this would have been better served to post BEFORE the Super Bowl… But considering I made it for the super bowl, there were no pictures to post before that. But any day is a good day for guac, amiright? I’m a very visual person when it comes to food — if it doesn’t look appetizing I don’t want it. This is why I don’t like mayo, and why all the beige food at Thanksgiving (turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, bread…) isn’t appealing to me. And also why guac freaked me out for so long. Green slime? No thanks…

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…

American Southwest RV Trip Guide

American Southwest RV Trip Guide

1300+ miles, 10 days, three amigos, one 24-foot RV. This was a trip of epic proportions very unlike anything we’d done before, but hey — after 6 months of no travel due to the pandemic, I was more than ready for it! If you’d have asked me a year ago (hell, even at the beginning of this year) if I had any desire…

Amalfi Coast Travel Guide

Onto our second stop of our Italy trip: the Amalfi Coast! After our three days in Rome, we spent four days on the coast and one day in Naples before we flew out. In this travel guide, I’ll be covering where to stay, when to go, the best food…

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…

Spain Travel Guide

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, and 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)!
