Linguine with stir fried spinach, garlic, spring onions, a roasted pepper & portobello mushroom topped with homemade pesto, toasted pine nuts & a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
*When making pesto I use the vegan walnut & basil pesto recipe from the The Post Punk Kitchen. Using toasted walnuts, fresh basil leaves, garlic, olive oil & nutritional yeast then blend.

Another dinner from a few weeks ago. Salmon baked in a garlic & soya sauce served on top of rice noodles & tender stem broccoli, carrots & spring onions.
* I usually marinade it for 10-20mins depending on how much time I have.
**Thankfully, I’m at a stage where I’m not on a strict diet for my ibs so I can eat oily fish & spring onions. However, I am aware that some people are recommended to stay clear of oily fish because it can upset the stomach/digestion.
Dinner I made a few weeks ago. Coconut chicken, basmati rice & cucumber topped with fresh coriander & lime.
This is a recipe taken from Marks Daily Apple website. I’m not primal but I love the recipes & the website.
Chop 2 chicken breasts into thin slices. Then dip the pieces into whisked eggs. Then dip into a mixture of ground almonds & desiccated coconut. Then fry on my griddle/ frying pan using coconut oil. I served this with basmati rice & cucumber. My daughter loves this way of cooking chicken. The chicken is lovely cold the following day too.
**If you are into the primal way of living you could serve this with a big salad or on a cold night with sweet potato.
***Vegans/veggies could use tofu instead of chicken as it works well.****Be careful if you have IBS-D. Coconut is high in fibre.
This is my favourite piece of jewellery. I’m generally not really into jewellery & I don’t see the point in spending huge amounts of money on it as I will either lose it or break it. I wear my wedding ring & ear tunnels 24/7.
But I do love this piece & I bought this necklace about a year ago for roughly €15 from a woodturner in Kilkenny town. Its beautifully simple.
What your poo can tell you
To everyone out there who has digestive problems, stomach issues, etc specifically relating to food intolerance how did you discover what was wrong with you? And what route did you take? For example did you go to your doctor? Did you go to a nutritionist/dietician? Or did you go to a herbalist? Or a kinesiologist? Or a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner? Did you take a skin prick tests, blood tests, vega tests or other?
I have previously posted about my own experiences but I am curious to find out the other possible ways in which you discovered your food intolerances? There appears to be so many different practitioners out there doing different kinds if tests and the bottom line is do they work (for you)?
