Well hello lovelies, my name is Carrie and welcome to this little, friendly corner of the internet!
I’m passionate about tasty, nutritious vegan food, teaching regular vegan cooking classes in London. I’m also a bit of a nerd, with an academic background in biomedical science.
Annnnd I have an unfortunate history of IBS, after a rather strong course of antibiotics ravaged my gut microbiome *weep*.
I started this as a personal project, negotiating the low-FODMAP diet as a vegan and working my way back to good gut health. Sadly there isn’t much information out there for us vegans, who also have IBS, which made it all the trickier. So I started sharing everything here and on YouTube, to help make life a little easier for others in the same boat.
Now I'm kind of obsessed... Mostly because it's transformed the quality of my life (I mean you have so much more time and energy when you're not constantly dealing with an unhappy tummy!) and I want you to feel better too x
ABOUT THE WILD GUT PROJECT
The Wild Gut Project is all about managing the “wild”, turbulent symptoms (and down-right terribleness) of IBS using the low-FODMAP diet protocol while including a wide variety of different plants to feed a healthy community of "good" bacteria in the gut back to their natural, "wild" state.
Admittedly veganism makes the low-FODMAP diet more restrictive, but with a dash of creativity, planning and prep you can still enjoy delicious, nourishing food, which is also kinder to animals and the planet. Yay :)
Since starting this personal project a few years ago, it's grown into something more, gathering a beautiful little global community and I'm on a bit of a mission to help others manage their tummy-troubles without compromising their values.
