Hello and welcome to The Flourishing Pantry!
Hello! My name is Vicky and in 2016 I started on a bit of a life change.
Fed up with years of nasty bloating I took a blood test in January 2016. The results showed a yeast intolerance, and I have since been on an incredible journey learning about sugar, yeast, fermentation, candida and much, much more.
In my quest to understand better I've sought out solid research and science backed nutrition advice. I am learning where to go for the best information on diet and most importantly, how to spot what's just total nutribollocks. And that's what I want to share with you.
In an online world that has become increasingly shouty about what to eat and who to listen to, I'm searching for the answers to great gut health and reducing my symptoms. I'm not an expert - I'm just like you, trying to make sense of it all and eat well for life. I don't always get it right, but that's part of the journey.
In addition to the science there's also the recipes! The social media and online healthy eating communities contain an amazing, supportive network of food bloggers and nutritionists who have inspired me to create delicious, nutritious food and I share a new recipe every week for you to try.
So this blog is for those wanting to find clear, no nonsense, honest information and recipes for a diet that makes them feel healthier and better nourished. And for those like me that suffer with IBS symptoms there's research, findings and cooking ideas to help us find some answers and relief.
I'd love to hear from you and to find out about your experiences. Please do get in touch here on the website or on socials, and most of all continue to share recipes and inspiration. Let's see our Flourishing Pantries grow and thrive together!
