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…

Gluten Free Flour Guide Part 1: The 5 Essential Flours

In the however-many-years I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve only ever posted one drink recipe! That is certainly not reflective of the amount that I enjoy a good cocktail. But the reality is…

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!

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

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)!
