Foodie Friday 'I always check out the menu beforehand'

Friday, June 16, 2017

Today's Foodie Friday interview is with Paige, who is a 21-year-old from Essex. Paige has recently been diagnosed with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) but loves food, so is determined not to let a limited diet limit her fun.We caught up with Paige to see how this condition affects her experience of dining out.Over to Paige...

How many times a week do you eat out and roughly how much do you spend?Once a week on average and about £30What foods can you not eat or wish to avoid?I have a bad bacteria in my stomach which affects my small intestine so I'm very limited to what foods I am allowed otherwise I will suffer with pain and bloating. I'm a healthy eater anyway, so cutting out sugar and processed foods are easy, but there are still fruits and veg e.d garlic which is in everything, that I have to avoid, so the best thing for me to do is pick simple foods such as grilled chicken and veg that I know I’m allowed to eat, which is often hard when I am so limited. How do you decide where to eat?I love my food so I am happy to eat anywhere as long as their menu allows for my condition. I always check out the menu beforehand to see if I can adjust it slightly to suit me, and I find that the nicer restaurants cater really well for someone like me. What would make eating out easier for you and allow you to #eatwithconfidence?For me personally, I think a lot of restaurants should allow you to build your own dishes so that people with health issues or food intolerances like myself can eat with confidence, knowing exactly what was in their food and know that they can eat out without worrying that it's possible that what they have just ate will affect them Tell us your favourite restaurant?This is difficult because I have a couple of favourites! There's a local fish restaurant located in my local high street in Billericay Essex, that serve healthy and fresh fish which is great for an occasion, and they have a varied menu so I find eating there is easy. When I'm feeling a bit naughty, Sushi City in Brentwood Essex has amazing sushi made fresh daily. I love sushi but due to the rice and sugar content it's a real treat; if I could I would eat here weekly.
