Progurt Review | Healthy Bacteria

Those of you who struggle with IBS may depend on healthy bacteria yoghurts for curbing stomach pain. Unfortunately, many of them are useless and simply do not do what they say on the tin.

Take Yakult, for example. What absolute garbage. It doesn’t work for me, but please do tell me if I’m wrong.

Progurt, on the other hand, is something a little different.

How To Make Alternative Milks (Almond, Cashew & Oat)

Making your own alternative milk is surprisingly simple and, best of all, it is much cheaper that store-bought alternatives.

When you do it yourself, you get to control how creamy your milk is going to be (reduce water for thicker milk), and what kind of flavours are added in; some nice additional options are vanilla extract, sea salt, and cinnamon.

Try these alternative milk recipes and see how much your digestion improves. Each recipes makes the equivalent of 2 per cent milk and around 5 cups per recipe. Keep in the fridge for extra freshness.

Alflorex Biotics Review: How does it help IBS?

I’m naturally sceptical when it comes to probiotic products. Before I was officially diagnosed with IBS, I tried expensive supermarket probiotic drinks like Yakult and Actimel because I imagined they’d fix my tempestuous stomach. Turns out, not so much.

All they did was make me feel more bloated, as well as giving me ‘squeaky teeth’ – the phenomenon of way too much sugar in concentrated form, so I had to stop taking them.alflorex-ibs

Are Protein Bars Good For You?

Nutrition bars/energy bars/sports bars/protein bars – whatever you call them, watch out for these deceptively high fat, high sugar snacks!

‘Protein’ is certainly the buzz-word of 2016. When you think of the word ‘protein’ what do you envision? Is it workout-crazy tigers & tigresses hitting the gym hard on Instagram? Is it ‘clean eating’ memes with just lean steak and vegetables for your daily inspo? Or is it big muscles, built by the beautiful protein we just all can’t seem to get enough of?

Introducing Mr Lee’s Healthy & Gluten-Free Instant Noodles

A while ago I mentioned how great gluten-free noodles are as a bloat-free alternative to stodgy pasta dishes & typically gluten-rich noodle meals. Some of my favourites were special bean-based noodles from Explore Asian, which taste amazing, but they’re not exactly a noodle meal you can take with you on the go.

Best Protein Energy Bars For IBS

Like anybody else who loves to snack, I love protein energy bars because they’re simply the best solution to settling sugary cravings, with no guilt. But that’s not to say all protein bars are good for you – a lot of them are packed with sugar, syrups, flavourings, etc. which don’t agree with IBS sufferers, so selecting the perfect energy bar for you is essential and some consideration should be taken before tucking in.
