Soothe Your Insides

As all Coeliacs will know, it’s easy for your stomach/intestines to get irritated about something when you have a gluten-intolerance. The gluten damages the villi of your intestine, leaving it weak. Sometimes it’s easy to eat gluten by accident, and even the tiniest bit can flare up your symptoms. But…

Well Catered For!

So the reason I wasn’t blogging much this weekend was that I was away on a family meet-up for my Aunt and Uncle’s Ruby Wedding Anniversary! I did write the post all out last night but then I somehow deleted it all (oops!) so let’s start again 😛 They had…

Which bread for what?

So the main staple food us Coeliacs miss is bread – but with so many options on the market and so many ways to use them, which bread is best for which meal? I decided to find out…. Perfect for… Garlic Bread Buttery, garlicy and soft – all you would…

Gluten Free Fish and Chips

It’s not always the everyday foods that Coeliacs miss. Special treats such as take-aways and meals out are often more of a difficulty if you’re gluten free, especially if you’re a fan of fish and chips. But if you’re on Facebook, then one woman has the answer to finding fish…

Three reasons NOT to hate Coeliac disease.

Ok, so being a Coeliac isn’t easy. Watching your friends eating all the things you dream of tasting again is hard work, and sometimes it can make you down-right miserable. So here’s my top three reasons not to hate being gluten-free! 1. You can educate others. I feel as if…

Better late than never…

Ok, so pancake day was quite a while ago, I know. But since then, I have been fiddling about with my pancake mix to try and get the perfect pancakes, and here’s what I came up with… Gluten Free Pancakes 100g Doves Gluten Free Flour 1 Large Egg 300ml milk…

Thankyou Genius Gluten Free!

Just a small note as I sit and sip a Gaymers (mmm, Cider!) I have long been subscribed to the e-newsletter of Genius (the best gluten free bread company in existance – review here!!) and when I got it today, I noticed that there was a small section about gluten…

Love-Hate Relationship

So, the news has been slowly circulating this week that the Australians MAY have found a vaccine for Coeliacs (story here). This got me thinking – even if there was a cure available in years to come – would I want it? You’re probably thinking that I’m mad, but I’ve…

An Eventful Weekend…

Firstly, apologies that I haven’t been blogging this weekend, but it’s been an eventful one! I would like to say a big THANKYOU to The Black Farmer for sending me a free mug! I am currently enjoying a nice coffee out of it as I write this update! You can…

Starting to Gather Answers…

So today I had a reply from Coeliac UK following my enquiry into prescriptions (see my earlier post) The response I got was pretty much what I expected, but it filled me with hope that people such as those at Coeliac UK are trying to make gluten free life easier…

Prescription Problems…Help!?

When I first got diagnosed with Coeliacs in 2001 I used to get all my food on prescription for years. When I turned 18, I stopped getting it on prescription for a while as more gluten free foods were emerging in the supermarkets and it was a lot cheaper than…

Halloumi Cheese…YUM!

So the letters to the Supermarkets were sent off yesterday! Hopefully I will receive some responses soon, it would be nice to hear their point of view as to their broken up GF bread! As for Gluten Free life in the past few days, it’s been pretty eventful! I made…

A Late Renewal

I have been a bit busy of late. I have now almost completed a week’s work experience at my local paper which I have enjoyed so much! But it has been a bit hectic and now I am trying to catch up with everything which is a  bit of a…
