I recently got my hands on a beautiful new cookbook by Zorah Booley (creator of In The Midnight Kitchen). “The Everyday Low-FODMAP cookbook” is filled with delicious recipes designed around good gut health, to help soothe inflammation and reduce the symptoms associated with IBS. The book includes everything from comforting side dishes to breakfasts, easy meals to decadent desserts, and more. And with such a gorgeous selection of dishes no-one ever needs to feel left out or deprived when following the Low-FODMAP diet.

I’m always up for Mexican food, especially when nachos are on the menu! This deliciously spicy recipe is a crowd pleaser and screams weekend food (although frankly the days are all merging into one at the moment, what day is it again?). Packed with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavour these crunchy tray bake nachos topped with spicy beef and melted cheese are super tasty. Don’t forget the guacamole and sour cream and you’re all set for a fantastic dinner.

It’s week three of self isolation for my family not to mention one week into South Africa’s lockdown, and it felt wrong to just put out another recipe without acknowledging the strange and unsettling situation that we all find ourselves in right now. So for this post I’m doing something a little different and sharing not only some recipe inspiration but some thoughts on how we’re managing at home, and our new routine. Please feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear how you’re doing!
