The post 7 gluten-free purchases that I thought were a complete waste of money appeared first on A Balanced Belly.

We seem to have more and more gluten-free products being released every single week. And whilst I’m the first to get excited about them (and often blog the gluten free products I think you need to buy in a dramatic fashion) I’m also guilty of hyping things up or getting myself into a bit of a frenzy when I see them on Facebook and Instagram. Because apparently its perfectly reasonable to take an hour’s detour to Morrisons for a gluten-free pizza or their dairy-free mozzarella straws (spoiler alert: they didn’t have either in stock!). I don’t even think I ate […]

The post Recipe: 3 ingredient gluten free sweet potato hash brows (dairy-free, low FODMAP, vegan option) appeared first on A Balanced Belly.

Today I’m back with a super simple recipe that is a healthy gluten-free, low FODMAP friendly alternative to the usual breakfast options. What’s more, its only three ingredients too! These 3 ingredient gluten free sweet potato hash browns are great to make in batches and work just as well for dinner as they do for breakfast and lunch! They also form part of my epic gluten and dairy free breakfast sandwich-which you can make here. Nutrition Notes:gluten free sweet potato hash browns –Sweet potatoes are a great source of gut-friendly soluble fibre and much easier to digest since they’re cooked […]

The post Jude’s Birth Story and my first month as a new mom appeared first on A Balanced Belly.

It’s been almost six weeks since Jude was born but my blogging has been sporadic despite my best efforts! Today, I thought I’d give you an update on how I’ve been; along with sharing his birth story and how it’s been adapting to motherhood alongside Crohn’s disease too! Jude’s arrival As mentioned in my pregnancy updates, I have known I’d be having a C-Section from the beginning of my pregnancy but I think I’d always thought he might still make an early appearance; especially since my last few weeks were spent having painful Braxton Hicks. But nope, as the 3rd […]

The post Outdoor Adventures With Bella, Stevie and Jude appeared first on A Balanced Belly.

This post is in conjunction with James Wellbeloved but all thoughts are my own You might know that this month is National Walking Month-perfect timing since one of my favourite things to do in the summer months is to get outside in the sunshine. Walking is one of my favourite, low impact ways to exercise and does wonders for my mental health (the vitamin D fix doesn’t hurt either!) Those of you who follow me on Instagram will also know just how much I love spending time with my two dogs: Bella and Stevie (another of my favourite self-care choices!) […]

The post The ultimate gut-friendly breakfast sandwich (GLUTEN-FREE/DAIRY-FREE) appeared first on A Balanced Belly.

One of the things I struggle with the most being gluten and dairy-free is breakfast ideas. Porridge is all well and good but it gets a bit boring after a while! And many free-from cereals on the market are full of sugar! Sometimes, especially during the weekend, I crave something a little bit more indulgent-but that will also be good for my gut! Disclaimer:This is a paid recipe creation post with Genius As you know, I regularly create recipes for Genius gluten-free and this time, they’ve asked me to come up with my favourite gluten-free breakfast recipe using their new […]
