It’s Marcsi (more internationally, Maria)! I’m Hungarian who currently lives in the Netherlands. I’m 27 years old and a huge fan of food and cooking. It was always like this in my entire life. I always spent my time around the kitchen, tasting everything and sometimes got on my mother’s/grandmother’s/stepmother’s nerves. As soon as I could reach the stove, I was cooking or baking.
In these days, I still have this habit and luckily, it’s kind of part of my job as well. Until few weeks ago, I was enjoying food on the max. My main meals were pretty healthy or not too unhealthy. But I was snacking so much trash and drank at least 1,5 l of Cola. I thought everything is fine, but sometimes I had cramps and other uncomfortable symptoms. I thought I might have some allergies or something but it turned out quickly, that it is a bit more complicated.
My digesting system was a mess and had very bad results. My guts were not absorbing most of the things I’ve eaten. So now, I need to take 12 pills and drink one powder. These are vitamins, minerals and mostly probiotics and SBOs (Soil Based Organisms). I have to avoid gluten and dairy, to be more exact, every kind of milk products from animals and sugar. The last one obviously, I cannot always do it. I cannot have any soda (which is ok, it is healthy), most of the snacks what I have taken before, beans, too much yeast, etc.
I know, it is completely doable, but for me, who loved everything with gluten and cheese… Well, it is still a bit of a challenge. However, I am happily doing this to prevent crone syndrome or gut cancer.
On the other hand, I always had the need to share what I’m making/eating so it gave me a last kick to finally start it. Here, you can read about my journey about this diet, about what happens when I finished it, I will share you all of my recipes and food experiences, my tips about how-to, where-to, etc. I’m enjoying every minute of it and I hope you will too and be inspired by me a little.
Thank you for your visiting!
Have a wonderful and tasty day!
