Amazing sharing platter for starters at ‘The Captain’s Wife’ restaurant, Cardiff. The staff were incredibly accommodating to my dietary needs. They informed me that they can alter nearly every meal to #glutenfree
How amazing!! #freefromgluten#veggie#vegetarian
Love @marksandspencerfoodpr butter chicken and pakoras so much. Not feeling well this weekend so wanted something simple to eat, so got the 2 mains and 2 sides Indian banquet for £10. Bargain and delicious 😋 🍚 🍛
My insanely bloated stomach massively affects my mental health... but the stress it causes then makes my stomach so much worse... and so the cycle continues 🤕 Is there ever a way out? 🤷🏼♀️ Some days I feel like I’m making progress mentally and physically, but then I so often just fall apart wondering when it will end. Have any of you guys felt like this and broken the cycle? If so, how?! How do you keep yourself going? I feel like I get constantly battered on both fronts and all I can think of is... there’s people in the world worse off than I am! But that doesn’t change that I just wake up feeling awful. Every. Damn. Day.
Here’s a photo of me in my happy place - surrounded by houseplants in @urbanjunglesuffolk, a place which actually is awesome for gluten free too 🙌🏻 (the cafe, not the plants!!!) I bought a bunch of new houseplants today which I might show you on my story if you care! I find that having a cool little hobby like houseplants really takes my mind off things sometimes. Do you love houseplants? 🤷🏼♀️ What’s your faves? I love Pileas currently and have about 5 on the go! 🌿 (If you have never even considered having house plants just buy one or two... and you’ll get obsessed like me 😆)
So after a week off we are back to it! We miss jammy dodgers! Yes you can get gf jammy wheels but guess what? That’s right - the ‘may contain nuts’ is once again thwarting our biscuit dreams. So, with the help of a clever little biscuit cutter we have these! Happiness restored 😊 we will post this and other recipes once our website is live! If you just can’t wait, drop us a message and we will send it right to you!
Very tasty breakfast this morning!
@geniusglutenfree toasted seeded roll topped with smoked salmon and drizzled with mustard-orange dressing. Grilled peppered tomatoes 🍅 , tasty poached egg 🍳 with sliced avocado 🥑
I have been baking gluten-free for three years now. It was the very last part of my diet to become 100% gluten-free because baking cakes is what I did for a living and it took courage for me to make the switch. I didn’t know anything about alternative flours, I was scared of all the weird ingredients I was seeing on the back of packets of gluten-free products and I didn’t really enjoy eating the gluten-free cakes I had tried but a change had to be made as I could no longer eat the cakes I was baking. Reading Flavor Flours by @alicemedrich and Alternative Baker by @the_bojon_gourmet absolutely changed the way I looked at gluten-free baking. Removing wheat flour from the equation suddenly didn’t seem like a limitation but rather an open door to a whole world of ingredients which would enhance the flavour, taste and texture of my bakes. I am loving the journey I have chosen and learn more about alternative flours and gluten-free baking every single time I try a new recipe using a new mix of gluten-free flour blends. The flours I use are tailored to every individual cake recipe but I’m not a snob about it, if the recipe tastes delicious using a pre-mixed gluten-free flour blend (I use @dovesfarm) then that is what I’ll use. If you want to join me on this alternative baking journey and learn more about how gluten-free flours can enhance your cakes and bakes then you can start with my Introduction to Gluten-Free Flours.

I've been eating these chocolate twists from @marksandspencerfoodpr since April, but this is the first time I've heated one up (as per instructions) as I love them so much I never make it out of the shop without one in my mouth
More #vegan and #glutenfree goodness coming from Jay’s Kitchen last night.
These are a take on @anitabean1 Spinach & Chickpea burgers (with added sweet corn & peppers). I used @scharglutenfreeuk Panini as these are not only #glutenfree but also #vegan and to give them that extra taste sensation @violife_foods slices that are #freedrom dairy, soya, gluten, lactose and preservatives 👌🏻 Butternut squash squaffles as a side dish coated in salt and paprika for added taste.
I recently posted the toffee meringue from @marksandspencerfoodpr. Today, I tried the strawberry meringue which is also #glutenfree . It was nice but preferred the toffee one as I found it slightly too sweet 🍓
Oh hello there gluten free Bakewell loaf cake 😍 (dairy free too) What a perfect way to start the weekend 💆🏼♀️ I wanted to ask you guys something - what’s the last thing you ate containing gluten? 🤷🏼♀️ Was it an accident? Or was it the last thing you ate before you cut it out of your diet? I went to a market stall selling crepes in Chelmsford about 4 years ago and they clearly forgot to give me a gluten free one... I was agony for days 🤦🏼♀️ Fortunately I’ve not had any slip ups since then as far as I can remember!! How about you guys?
Spent the afternoon in sunny Southwold today and just basically want to move there 🙈 There’s something about quaint seaside towns that is just a bit of me! Defo taking Peg next time as there were soooo many cute dogs there 😍😍 Does anyone else just point at dogs and say something like ‘look at that one, awww’ like me and Mark always do? 😂 We’ve also been known to say ‘that looks like Peggy’ about any white dog!!
Check the link in my bio if you fancy baking my Bakewell loaf cake - you’ll find the full recipe there 🙌🏻 Don’t forget to take a snap and tag me if you bake it 📸 My fave pic of the month wins a £50 supermarket voucher - oooooo! Have a great Friday folks 💕
These are delicious when you need a little choccy treat, organic, gluten free, dairy free, soya free 👍🏻Bought them from @asda , I think they were 57p or something like that. Probably cheaper than a freddo these days! 😂😂 @moo_free_chocolates
