Welcome to A Balanced Belly: A blog about healthy living, advice on gut health and free from recipes. As an Inflammatory Bowel Disease sufferer, Nutritional Therapist and someone who is gluten and dairy intolerant I wanted to create a site that helped people with all kinds of gut issues: from coeliac disease to IBS to Crohn’s (which I suffer with) and UC. You’ll find my experiences, free from recipes that help me and general lifestyle tips. It’s your one-stop blog for living a balanced and healthy life with a gut condition.
My first print book: Managing IBD is now available! A guide for living life with IBD, it covers everything from travel to anxiety to supplements. I am so proud that it also has contributions from a fantastic IBD nurse (who provides vital medical info) and EFT specialist Sally Baker (to suggest tips for anxiety management) . It can be purchased from Amazon , Foyles or Hammersmith Health’s website. You can also read the first chapter for free here.
Nutrition guides, shopping trips and life tips for those living with coeliac disease. Click here for my blog posts on coeliac disease.
Recipes: Gluten and dairy free dishes
I feature a range of anti-inflammatory, gut friendly recipes which are adaptable to Low-Residue and also free of gluten and dairy. My gut friendly smoothies are very popular!
There’s lots of nutrition advice on the web but mine is tailored to those with gut issues- tackling topics such as the best gut supplements, the link between IBD and Vitamin D and more.
