I seriously have had a CHEF 👨🏻🍳 explain that ‘while they don’t have a seperate fryer for the GF chips and calamari, their oil is set at a hot 🔥enough temperature to ‘burn it off’!!! 🤷🏼♀️⠀
I have also heard of restaurant staff talking about gluten getting ‘killed’ by the hot temp of the oil!! 🙅♂️⠀
Gluten is a protein molecule. It cannot be killed 😂⠀
And IF gluten was destroyed in this way then the food containing gluten would lose its glutinous structure and consistency...ie. the batter or bread crumbs would not hold together...⠀
In fact, for the temp of the oil to be hot 🔥enough for the gluten molecules in the food to be ‘destroyed’ (higher than 260C) the food would almost all be reduced to charcoal!!!⠀
However, regardless of the temperature of the oil there would still potentially be enough of the gluten protein’s sequential molecular structure remaining intact within the oil/food item to trigger an auto-immune response in a coeliac. ⠀
Mind you...the coeliac at this point wouldn’t eat it as IT WOULD BE MOSTLY CHARCOAL 😂😂😂⠀
"The chase is better than the catch"
For the last month or so I have been on a mission to find these new gluten free @stellaartois ! For some reason every @tescofood store in my local area didn't seem have them and after numerous times asking @stellaartois where I can get them, I had given up hope of finding this holy grail of gluten free lager!!
So tonight I was over the moon to find my local @morrisons in Airdrie, Scotland have them and have made me a very happy coeliac!! They are pricier than the Tesco price at £4.50 but I will accept that!! .
Now I just need to find time to actually drink them with having a two month old baby and four year to run around after!! .
Have you tried gluten free Stella Artois? Where you as delighted as me to see it appearing in stores?
| NOODLING | This noodle is part of a smiley if you just picture the eyes above. A happy noodle guiding me in the pool whilst swimming for the first time. Yihaa! I was smiling and crying and swimming at the same time. (Isn’t it great to be a woman so I can multitask!) Not quite ready there for the triathlon but hey, I did finish 500 meters!
“This Bar of deliciousness was amazing!”🙌 Thanks to @glutenfree_lucy for tagging us in this picture of our Lemon and Ginger Shortbread (Snowy Hills)🍋 Make sure you tag us in any photos you take of our cakes, we love to see you enjoying them😋
| DUTCH TREAT | Just got a tip that these don’t contain gluten. Might have some traces so that’s why it doesn’t have the gluten free logo. Would you dare? As soon as I can run again I will go Forrest Gump style to the store! (Thanks @esmeedijt !) #runforrestrun#glutenfree#bosschebollen#treat#newfind @albertheijn
| MONDAY | A new week of learning to set and keep my boundaries. To find a balance between growing stronger and saving my energy. The wish to go faster than I currently can is huge but only I can go as fast as my body tells me to. Time heals all wounds, eh?
This Sunday has called for Chicken goulash - smoked paprika goodness. 🍛 🍚 🍗 I've been baking #glutenfree bread today but still trying to find the best recipe.
Every meal needs a dessert right? @bakdcake brownie with vanilla ice cream - yes please. @bakdcake brownie bake mix giveaway on previous post 🍫
| IN VINO VERITAS | Last night on the train I’ve met a woman around my mothers age. We started talking and soon it was about serious stuff. It’s amazing how you can meet random people and they’ve got their wise lessons to share. “Rest and take your time. Don’t care about what others say, it’s your healing process.” Wanted to share this with you (and this beautiful glass of Madeira)
Sundays are made for one pan lemon chicken and veggie roasts 😍😍🍋 Who wants the recipe? It’s dairy free, low FODMAP and gf too 👌🏻 This just is my fave dinner for all those cosy Autumn vibes 💁🏼♀️🍂 Plus, it’s soooo easy and fuss-free to make which is not something I often say about a roast 😇 Tag someone who needs to make this for you ASAP!
As you might have seen all summer, I’ve been using my @thermapen to make sure all our food on the BBQ was cooked and safe to eat 👌🏻 (it’s a super duper digital food thermometer FYI) But the same goes for Autumn too! I couldn’t live without it now - it’s totally eliminated that annoying game of “is this cooked yet?” 😆 So if you’re bored of playing that game then defo go check them out! #ad
Tonight’s dinner was @aldiuk chicken casserole dish which was very tasty! Can’t remember the exact price but it cost under £3 which is a bargain! I added some broccoli also🥦 takes 85 mins in total and so easy to make you just whack it in the oven no need to prep anything!😊🙌🏼
"Doing Porridge" .
Sunday was always my favourite day for eating some traditional good old fashioned scottish food! So this morning my food of choice is porridge! After chatting to @b.h.anderson about porridge preferences yesterday, it made me realise that my favourite porridge bowl is the simple no frills version!! Recently I have been trying to pimp my porridge with lots of fruit and extras but always came away feeling that little bit disapointed. .
So this fine Sunday Autumn morning, I used @nairnsoatcakes gluten free oats for my bowl, with lots of milk and gaaaasspppp..... Salt!!!! Yes salt!! It may seem strange to people but a pinch or two of salt just gives porridge that extra dimension! I know I will probably lose a number of followers for that admission 😄 but don't knock it till you try it!!
Anyone else prefer a simple bowl of oats with no frills when you 'do porridge' 😀
My first attempt at cooking with pumpkins! And it’s a success! 🎉It’s Sunday which means it’s the perfect excuse to snuggle on the sofa with a huge bowl of soup! 🥣 Luckily my latest recipe has just gone live on the blog! It’s a gluten-free, dairy-free ‘creamy’ pumpkin soup which is perfect for those days when you’re belly wants something soothing and easy to digest! You can make it by clicking the link on my bio; I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it! Have you tried cooking with pumpkin yet? Any other recipe recommendations?
Can’t recommend @wearemommi enough for gluten free food in London 😍👌🏻 It’s a 100% gluten free fusion restaurant in Clapham that’s accredited by @coeliacuk 🤭 I had a Latin benedict royale - they even do tempura fish and chips AND a Sunday roast with yorkies, there’s so much choice for us gf folks 🚫🌾 Heading to London soon? Let me know where you’re visiting/staying and I’ll happily recommend some places to you!
Check out the link in my bio for 30 MORE places for gluten free food in London 💁🏼♀️ I updated my guide last week and it’s nearly doubled in size! (a bit like me after making the guide 😂) Thanks to @glutenfreerhii for finally making me go to Mommi and inviting me!
It was only a day or so ago I was saying how stressful I find eating out. Before I went yesterday I was super duper nervous, but they were so attentive to our needs... there were 17 of us, all gluten free but will other intolerances and allergies alongside it 😆 It feels great eating out with others who get it... if anyone else ever wants to meet up for some food, let me know... il arrange it and I promise, no stress involved!
| WINE TASTING | A little wine tasting to recover from my 1,5 hour train journey to my bestie. Y’all must know; in Holland that’s a long time to travel as we’re such a tiny country! This place is new, awesome, got some gluten free options but must say the food could be more for what you’re paying. But then again you come here for the wine; all of them are so nicely picked and the staff is sweet! Do visit when you’re in Rotterdam!
Hands up who else loves a late night snack like this 🙋🏼♀️🙌🏼 wasn’t really hungry until earlier so decided to whisk up some beans on toast. I mean you have to add cheese to your beans on toast! It makes it!🧀🧀 having a chilled Saturday night in so this is the ultimate comfort food😊
