My Food Journal

Hello and welcome to my food journal. I created this blog to upload pictures of what I eat as inspiration to those who have to survive on a restricted diet due to allergies, intollerances or just lifestyle choices. I have quite bad IBS and find that I have to cut out a LOT of foods just to feel ok. Those include wheat and gluten, dairy, dark meat, cabbage, brocolli, cauliflower, pulses and legumes, anything with a lot of sugar in, alcohol… you get the idea! I enjoy looking through blogs where there are loads of pictures of simple but exciting meal ideas, so I thought I would have a go myself. Cutting out large groups of food can feel like the end of the world but it doesn’t have to be. You just need to get a little creative and you can rekindle your love affair with food! I also try to keep my food choice healthy and nutritionally balanced, though I am no expert so I might not be doing as good a job as I think.

I hope I can inspire some people to mix up what they eat and have fun with it. Feel free to subscribe and to ask any questions that you want. I’m happy to help!
