To all those coeliacs out there with family members or friends who still just don’t get it, who think it is just a fad or a dietary choice, or struggle to eat out because restaurant chefs and wait-staff don’t understand that gluten free in a shared fryer, or toaster or bread board is NOT gluten free...
This is for you 💛
Let’s get vocal. Let’s broker a new reality. One where our health issues are taken seriously ...where we are understood and not minimised or forgotten. Where we get to engage in the shared experience of food joy. .
...this quote is from my blog TOP 10 Gluten Free Pet Peeves (link in BIO ☝🏻)
Challenge set: SHARE IT & increase awareness in your world and ours...spread the word about our reality so we can walk in more foodie JOY 💟
>> What is your biggest gluten free pet peeve?! <<
“We’ll bond over llama biscuit making. Demonstrating what can be achieved with team work & perseverance. Feeling a sense of pride at the end result as we reward our efforts with a glass of milk & tasty biscuit treats”..... reality is she got distracted by @heyduggee (which had been switched on to entertain her 2yo brother from sticking the llama decorations up his nose & pretend sneezing them out). If you have an attention span longer than Peggys & can resist sticking tiny balls up your nose, these @asda llama biscuits are great Sunday afternoon baking fun. Yay for me! 🍪💪
Gluten free nutella cheesecake with daim chocolate and @scharglutenfreeuk gluten free kinder buenos 🙌🏼🙌🏼 my first ever cheesecake and it turned out so well! And it’s incredibly tasty😄 recipe coming very soon!💓🍫💓
Gluten free Oreos (or close enough!?) found these in @tescofood today after seeing a few people post about them over the last week! Can’t wait to try them! Has anyone tasted them yet? Love a new gluten free find, it’s always exciting!! 💛 #theglutenfreeblogger
BEYOND BREAD 😍 finally after so long tried this wonderful 100% gluten free place! After much deliberation I went with the 'Smokey Chicken BLT' consisting of: beef tomato, bacon, chicken breast, garlic & paprika sauce and fresh leaves 🍅🍗🥓 swipe ⬅️ to see how beautiful the seeded roll was. Popped there whilst out and about in London today to grab a 'to-go' lunch and was kinda relieved that I don't have one near my work because I'd probably be in there most days 🙊 went with my vegan/dairy free friend and she said it was the nicest sandwich she's had in a long time! Who else has been before and agrees? What did you get? ☺️
Rocky road love 💕 these gluten, dairy and egg free beauties from @lazydayfoods are just perfect! A great combo of marshmallow, chocolate, cherries and sultanas 😋 and if you know me well, I only like chocolate on occasion (I much prefer sweets 🍬) so they must be good for me to share! Go and get your hands on some now from @sainsburys or @morrisons now if you haven't already tried them! 🙋
MATCHY MONDAY💜💜 I made bursting blueberry @thechiaco porridge, topped it with sliced🍌🍌, chocolate brownie @livias_kitchen nugglets& a drizzle of smooth @tescofood 🥜butter, who would say yes to this bowl?!🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️
Spending this rainy Monday morning dreaming of flaky @beyond_bread pastries and amazing flat whites! Throwback to when I delivered urgent gluten free pastries to @refrainfromthegrain - this girl knows her stuff about the best coeliac friendly haunts in London!! Happy Monday everyone! 💛 #theglutenfreeblogger
This mornings smoothie bowl is full of goodness 🙏🏻 I’m not feeling too great this morning and I have lots to do this week because I am moving in eight days!🎉 So I needed to start my day off with lots of vitamins and yummy goodness. 😋I used @sambazonuk frozen açai pulp, banana, blueberries and @kokodairyfree coconut yoghurt for the base with some @grapetreefoods red maca powder and @superfoodwales nutrient pure protein powder. I topped it with mango, blueberries, raspberries, @hollandandbarrett coconut chips and @grapetreefoods cacao nibs and goji berries and the last of my @deliciouslyella granola 😍! I’m going to go and devour this and I hope you all have a good start to your week 😘🌺
More of my dad's home grown vegetable meals 😊
Tonight we had roasted butternut squash with cranberries & honey. Served with courgette, red pepper, onions, baby carrots & balsamic vinegar.
So good 😍
Gonna miss these meals when I move out in a couple of weeks!
Grant and I made gluten free chocolate seashell brownies today for us and my family/grandparents/auntie 😍
They are so good. We have already had 2 each and kept the rest to munch tomorrow 😊
To make them we used gluten free plain flour from asda, cocoa powder, 3 eggs, unsalted butter, caster sugar, brown sugar and Belgian seashell chocolates from Lidl.
Guylian seashells used to be my fave but can't eat them as they aren't gluten free. Lidl's version taste just as good though 👌🏻 Definitely going to make these again! ❤
GLUTEN FREE ROUNDUP over the last two weeks! @wahaca has introduced a new gluten free menu and the Nachos are amazing! Tried @arepaandco for the first time recently and it was really good. I had a lovely lunch @barrafinadruryspecials - lots of seafood and meat. Oh let's not forget @carluccios pasta! @coeliacuk @coeliacukguts
