Ahh I feel like such a bad blogger! Honestly I still cook but trying to cook + blog my FODMAP diet and all the fun that entailed + life in general it all got a bit too much! Plus I have lots of exciting stuff going on and its been crazy busy and its left little time for my little blog! I don’t want to tempt fate…. but crossed toes and fingers we are on the move….!
Last week it was my boyfriends and a good friends birthday, which means cake and lots of it so I relaxed a little on the FODMAP rules and also skipped a week of ‘reintroduction’ I’ve kinda figured out wheat is a little naughty but in moderation…its okay… plus I missed croissants too much! Dairy is also…a little dodgy I think but again… all in moderation…plus when PMT comes along it blows it out the park so to speak so it was a needed ‘week off’!
This week is fairly simple, a mix of favourites and mostly FODMAP friendly. I am a little addicted to Halloumi and have now converted a few more last weekend at a BBQ we hosted for my B’s birthday – I made my loved Bacon and Halloumi salad but without the potatoes, as I’d already made potato salad and figured we had enough carbs!! For this weeks lunches, I prepped ahead last night and made a tray of roasted veggies, with smoky chunks of chorizo and a scattering of halloumi crumbed up – my golly it made for a good lunch box today! If only they would invent smell-o-vision!
