Hi, my name is Claire and I'm the recipe developer, cook, taste tester (it's a hard job, but someone has to make sure the cookies are *absolutely* perfect!) and photographer behind this healthy recipes blog.
Welcome to Through the Fibro Fog!
Here you will find an array of (mostly!) healthy recipes, from warming breakfast ideas to easy weeknight meals and delicious desserts, of course.
All the recipes are designed to be approachable, tasty and have you coming back for seconds. So whether it is my indulgent comfort food classic of creamy sage chicken or a fun treat in my popular honey spelt cookies, grab your apron and let's start cooking!
Background About Me
A little about me . . .
I think many of us food bloggers go through a bit of a journey with cooking. As a child I loved helping out. Maybe my mum wouldn't think of it as helping, perhaps more making a mess, but it was so much fun. Getting to stir big bowls of soup, make bread or decorate cookies always made me feel very grown-up.
When I went to university, cooking kind of went by the way side a bit in favour of grabbing a take-away, perhaps too many glasses of wine and late nights sneakily eating crisps in the library.
But then my health took a bit of a 'turn' and the kitchen came to be my happy place again. As well as helping my health, I fell back in love with the creativity of coming up with new dishes and doing a 'happy dance' around the kitchen when a recipe comes out perfectly(!)
And so, after quite a few of those happy dances, Through the Fibro Fog was created and is now such a passion. Sharing low histamine recipes and connecting with my readers is such a pleasure, and you guys always make me smile when you share a pic of one of my dishes!

More About Claire and the Blog
Through the Fibro Fog is a little play on words. I live with fibromyalgia, yet won't let it hold me back! So while some days are more challenging, I always enjoy working and being in the kitchen, even if it is through 'the fog'!
My best advice is to go with simplicity, but lots of flavour! Easy sheet pan dinners and skillet recipes are always so simple, so I recommend my pesto chicken traybake and my creamy paprika chicken. Soups are another great option, and my quinoa vegetable soup and asparagus broccoli soup have just a few simple steps!
I always think my pesto chicken risotto is perfect for a weekend meal, when you have more time. It's easy, and has step by step photos to help guide you make this comfort food dinner!
There are two go-to ideas that spring to mind. My sweet potato fritters are both adult and kid-friendly, and my ricotta pesto pasta and always goes down well in my family!
Yes, so many of them! Have a browse of my vegan recipes and gluten free recipes categories to find something you like! My roasted butternut squash risotto and stuffed bell pepper soup are suitable for both diets.
Yes, you'll find quite a few resources here, including my guide to starting a low histamine diet and my low histamine shopping list and low histamine herbs and spices round-up for pantry staples.
