The Four Best Ways to Combat Stomach Pain

The Four Best Ways to Combat Stomach Pain

We’ve all been there, despite the most well-laid plans. You accidentally order something that turns out to have tons of garlic in it. Or maybe that gelato is calling you, but it turns out you’ve been stressed recently and your gut is just not feeling like dealing with that lactose (not that I ever do that.) Or maybe…

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…

Sugar Free January Recap

Sugar Free January Recap

Can you believe January is already OVER?! I don’t know about y’all, but that went by so fast. And the end of January means… I’ve also gone an entire month without refined sugar! Today we’re going to dive into my observations & thoughts on how it went!

Changing our mindset around “healthy” foods

Changing our mindset around “healthy” foods

Ugh. The word “healthy” can mean so many different things that it basically means nothing — you know? I bet if you asked five different people what “healthy” meant, they’d give you five different answers. And that’s not inherently wrong or bad! The thing is, health is a highly individual thing, and what’s healthy for one person isn’t necessarily healthy for another. What becomes harmful then, is when someone tries to force what’s healthy for them onto you…

Sugar Free January Week 1 Recap

Sugar Free January Week 1 Recap

Week 1 of sugar free January is complete! In case you missed it: during the month of January I’m giving up added sugar (inspired by the folks at Pinch of Yum). This is less of a strict diet or a new years’ resolution, and more of an experiment to see how sugar affects my body. Let’s go!

Living a FODMAP Conscious Lifestyle

Living a FODMAP Conscious Lifestyle

Hi and happy new year! I hope the holidays treated you well and you didn’t go too overboard on the food and drinks. If you did, no worries, we’re here with a fresh new start. Feels good, doesn’t it? I’m excited to see what 2018 will be like…

Sugar Free January!

Sugar Free January!

Hi and happy new year! I hope the holidays treated you well and you didn’t go too overboard on the food and drinks. If you did, no worries, we’re here with a fresh new start…

Low FODMAP Holiday Reading

Low FODMAP Holiday Reading

As per usual, I can’t believe Christmas is almost upon us! Compounded by the fact that it’s 77 degrees here and I’m writing this with all the windows open… gotta love Texas. We’re headed out to Vegas (!!) with the whole fam to celebrate Christmas there this year. And while I’m super excited to…

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)…

Going through Phases

Going through Phases

I’ve been thinking about the blog recently, and the phases of life I’ve been through with it already. When I first started writing here, I was still fairly new to the low FODMAP diet, and was still discovering new types of flours and doing lots of experimenting. It was an exciting time for me and my kitchen! But since then, I’ve figured out a lot of the important everyday recipes, and sort of settled into this lifestyle…

Perfectly Cooked Salmon

Perfectly Cooked Salmon

This post has been sitting around as a draft for literally a month – and the pictures longer than that – because I’ve apparently been having a bit of writer’s block about it. I just can’t think of anything to say, other than that since I discovered this method of cooking salmon, I use it all the time. Fish is so tricky to get just right…

Cooking as Therapy

Cooking as Therapy

I always tell people cooking is my creative outlet outside work – which is true – but it’s more than that too. I spend a lot of my day wondering what other people are thinking about me, what they’re thinking about each other, trying to get everyone to get along…

Medications for IBS symptoms – what’s worked for me

Medications for IBS symptoms – what’s worked for me

I’ve been meaning to write this post forever, because I sort of feel like I’m lying to y’all otherwise. Being all “yeah the low FODMAP diet cured me!” when that’s only part of it. While I wish I didn’t have to take any medications for my IBS symptoms…

Curry Sauce with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Curry Sauce with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Continuing our unofficial sauce series, today we’ve got a super easy curry dipping sauce inspired by one of my favorite bars in Austin. Yellow Jacket Social Club is your typical Austin bar – 90% outdoor space, 10% indoor space. The drinks are good and cheap, but the hidden gem there is the food…

Gochujang Chile Pork Tacos

Gochujang Chile Pork Tacos

Like I mentioned when we talked about almond sauce, after years of avoiding sauces, I’ve been on a sauce kick lately. Call it desperation, but after essentially “figuring out” what I can & can’t eat on the low FODMAP diet, I’ve basically been sticking to those foods…

Detroit Style Pizza {low FODMAP}

Detroit Style Pizza {low FODMAP}

Someday I’ll do a travel guide for Austin – considering I live here it’s almost embarassing that I haven’t done one yet – but until I get my act together I’ll tell you the one place you MUST go if you’re in Austin: Via 313 Pizza…

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…

Super easy overnight oats + new and improved blog!

Super easy overnight oats + new and improved blog!

You should know already that I’m seriously loyal to my homemade protein granola – I’ve been eating it almost every morning for years now and I’m still not sick of it. But it does take some effort, and some time life happens…

Pumpkin Pie {gluten free}

Pumpkin Pie {gluten free}

Oh yeah, you read that right. Flaky, delicious, gluten free pumpkin pie. Maybe you’re thinking, ok big deal? All pies are flaky and delicious. Well, let me tell you a little story about a gluten free pumpkin pie…

Weekly Eats: Almost-Fall

Weekly Eats: Almost-Fall

Hey! We’re back with more weekly eats. This week was more successful in the grocery shopping and not eating out all the time category, hooray! Life in general has been closer to the “normal” level of chaos, which is always nice. I was also much more successful at taking pictures this time around. Turns out setting really annoying reminders does the trick…

Weekly Eats 01

Weekly Eats 01

Hi! So, in light of what we talked about last week – in an effort to post more regularly, and to share more of what I eat everyday, we’re going to try a new thing: weekly eats…

Cornbread Pancake Burger “Buns”

Cornbread Pancake Burger “Buns”

I’ve been meaning to share this recipe forever, because these guys are a rotating favorite around here. And that’s saying a lot, considering my aversion for making the same thing more than once…

Tips for Traveling on the Low FODMAP Diet

Tips for Traveling on the Low FODMAP Diet

Summer — and therefore travel season — are in full swing! We just got back from a vacation to King’s Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite National Parks, and traffic has been unusually wonderful this week because everyone is gone on vacations. I absolutely love traveling and seeing new places, but it can be stressful. Especially on the low FODMAP diet…

Tips for Eating Out on the Low FODMAP Diet

Tips for Eating Out on the Low FODMAP Diet

Hello and happy (almost) summer! I’ve been drafting a “tips for traveling” post in my head for quite awhile now, but when I sat down to actually write it, I quickly realized that I needed to write a “tips for eating out” post first. So…

Food adventure: Sunflower Seed Risotto with Scallops

Food adventure: Sunflower Seed Risotto with Scallops

Food adventure time! Marc is gone this weekend so I did some cooking to entertain myself. Yes. Some people watch TV, I cook.
This idea is not my own but from My New Roots, which I discovered via this Food52 article. The internet is great, right? As soon as I saw this I knew I had to try it…

Gluten Free Flour Guide Part 2: All the Flours

Gluten Free Flour Guide Part 2: All the Flours

Alright, so last week we talked about which flours I use most often, aka my faves. But as any walk down the gluten free aisle of a grocery store will tell you, there are tons of other options…

Spicy Pork Chop Salad

Spicy Pork Chop Salad

Pork chops get seasoned with a spicy dry rub and placed on a colorful bed of greens and veggies. Healthy and incredibly delicious!
Hey there, how’s your weekend? We don’t have any official plans except to spend as much time as possible outside…

Low FODMAP Game Day Recipes

Low FODMAP Game Day Recipes

Writing this post right before lunch was perhaps not the best idea – now I’m getting hungrier and hungrier! But hey! What are your plans for the super bowl? I’m not a huge fan of football as a sport, but I am a fan of it as a social event…

Easy Weekday Mahi Mahi with Grilled Squash

Easy Weekday Mahi Mahi with Grilled Squash

Hi, I’m back with more simple everyday recipes! This meal, “fish and vegetables” as it’s been dubbed around here, is our unofficial Monday dinner. You know. Mondays are crappy and render one completely unable to make dinner decisions…
