Bread better than medicine. a Bakery. Est. 2014 Hackney, East London.
a Bakery School. Est. 2019 Lewes, East Sussex.

Through years of scientific research, fermenting and baking for better digestive health, from Ireland to around the world, The Happy Tummy Co. was born out of one woman's desire to relieve people of their digestive health issues. Our bread, recipes and teachings have rehabilitated thousands of our customers back to good gut health. We host indoor, outdoor and online baking courses to help rejuvenate the mind and soul and positively impact your micro biome and bowel health longterm.

"Back in 2014 I knew I wasn't the only person suffering in silence with IBS and its multitude of varying symptoms. Through years of scientific research, recipe development and mathematical equations based on how our gut bacteria like to eat and years of baking for other IBS sufferers trying my *new* form of bread, The Happy Tummy Co. was born." - Karen O' Donoghue, Founder of The Happy Tummy Co.

"Yesterday's baking class taught me so much about how to look after myself as a whole, let alone how to finally help my tummy. Her information and knowledge is mind blowing!" - Mary, bakery student.

The Happy Tummy Co. has one sole purpose - to be the first bakery school in the world to rid IBS sufferers of their IBS symptoms. 

"The Happy Tummy Co. began out of my home in Hackney, East London. I kept my head down and worked from 3am in the morning until around 11pm at night 6 days a week for almost 2 years. To say I cared deeply about my customers would be an understatement. I was my customer and they were me. During talks I would give across London and beyond I could see the pain I once felt on the faces in the audience. Those are the faces that still drive me today."

After four years running The Happy Tummy Co. Bakery in London delivering bread across the UK and Ireland Karen decided she wanted to teach people how to use their own hands to heal and create a special oasis in the countryside where people could come and learn a lasting way of looking after their own gut health. People adore coming down to the bakery school leaving with so much knowledge and digestible bread.

"I have complete belief in my bread's ability to heal you to your very core. It will not happen overnight but through our practice and movement together we will make lifelong changes that shall penetrate through your body, heart and mind forever more." Big love, your baker girl, Karen x
