I ate a lot of salads in Zagreb. Europeans love their inflammatory gluten-filled pastries and so I didn’t have many options eating out.

Me being unimpressed with what seems like my 78th salad in Zagreb while Irfan and Darjan have pizza 🙁

So let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised when we were able to find Delizie Libanesi, a Lebanese restaurant. The meal was delicious! We were starving and so we ordered a ridiculous amount of food and, to our surprise, finished it all! Unfortunately, I think we were too hungry to remember to take pictures of all the dishes. We managed to take a couple of shot of our appys though, here they are!

Irfan ordered a red pepper hummus which was de-lish!

Darjan ordered a traditional Lebanese dish with herbs and rice.

I ordered a flavourful lentil soup with tandoori chicken and rice (maybe not sooo happygut friendly but I was so sick of salads man!).

Hence, Delizie Libanesi was a good option in a place with few options. The waitress was super happy and bouncy, which was an added bonus. Worth an eat if you’re ever in Zagreb!

Happygut in Malta!

We were lucky enough to stay with Vijay Uncle, Irfan’s close family friend, in his apartment in Marsascala, Malta. He really downplayed his place. We were expecting a small flat. That’s all, we had no expectations beyond that. Needless to say, our jaw dropped when we entered this huge gorgeous flat with a beautiful view […]

Happygut in Amsterdam!

After London, Irfan went to Amsterdam while I went straight to Malta. He raved so much about this Terra Zen Vegan Cafe that I decided it was a must-blog. He loved the down-to-earth-homey-family feel. The owner’s toddler son was running around with a water gun while his 10-year-old daughter helped with taking orders. Irfan had the […]

Happygut in London!

Although, I must admit that I am incredibly envious of the British accent (omigodness, me and my sister-in-law Jemila had WAY too much fun trying to speak with the accent while we were there, they should never allow us into their country again), London is NOT my favourite place on earth. It’s grey and rainy […]

Travelling with a happygut

First off, I would like to apologize for being MIA (missing in action people!) for an embarrassing amount of time. I have a valid excuse though! Sort of…. I was on vacation for 3 weeks! What kind of vacation do you have when you’re already FUNemployed you ask? An awesome one I say! We had […]

Take that inflammation!

I have recently discovered Dr. Mark Hyman’s blog. He’s awesome. He is another MD who gets it! He treats the causes and NOT the symptoms. I sort of have a crush, I’m not going to lie (sorry Irfan 😉 ). Anywho, my sister-in-law Jemila (shout out to J-Spot!!) asked me to do a post on […]

A Happy Gut Read

One of the first books I read after being diagnosed with Crohn’s was “The Body Ecology Diet” by Donna Gates. I found it pretty helpful. It basically lays out a ‘how to build a happy gut plan’. I liked it because it referred to a number of other body healing diets (including the blood type […]

Happy guts need water!

We all know that water is important. This is the truth. It is really very important. Please drink water. Your system needs at least eight 8-ounce glasses each day. When you get up in the morning, drink two 12-ounce glasses of water to hydrate your body and try to drink half  of your water intake […]

Deal with your kaka and you will be healthy :)

Irfan (my partner) and I like to use the word kaka to describe things we don’t like  🙂 We use it to describe unhealthy food (“kaka food”), to describe how we feel when we don’t feel good (“I feel like kaka”), to describe an unpleasant situation (“this is kaka”) or any other thing we aren’t […]
