Starting down the Gluten free (GF) path

Starting down the Gluten free (GF) path

When my nutritionist told me I had to go gluten free, I genuinely wanted to cry.

I thought that my baking and days of eating out were over, I love all things full of gluten goodness from pizza, pasta, bread as well as cakey things and I felt like it would have to cut out everything I loved out of my diet.

Luckily this was not the case, three things really helped me get on the right path.

  • I became a member of Coeliac UK (Link), you don’t have to be a coeliac to join. This costs around £10-20 to become a member depending on income levels. But with that you get sent a comprehensive food & eating out directory, as well as now an app which you can use to scan items in shops to check if they are gluten safe.
  • Doves Farm GF flour blends helped keep my baking alive
  • Juvela – This is a company that make GF products available for perception for coeliacs (unfortunately I am not eligible for the perception) however if you join Juvela you receive a sample pack of there products for absolutely FREE (Link). I will review the products individually but it contains so many products, it made me realise that I could eat tasty bread. The pack includes:
    • One white & One Fiber fresh bread get sent through first as a welcome. This is then followed by a box full of:
    • 2 boxes of flour mix (One white & One fibre)
    • 2 Large Pizza Bases
    • 2 Loaves of part baked sliced bread (One white & One fibre)
    • 4 part baked rolls
    • Pack of Fusilli (Spirl Pasta)
    • Pack of Crackers
    • Pack of Bran Flakes

  1. Right here is the right website for everyone who wishes to
    find out about this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue
    with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).

    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that’s been written about
    for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

  2. When I first got diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I definitely went through a mourning period. Luckily, in the years since I was diagnosed, gluten free food has come a long way. Either than or I’ve forgotten what real bread tastes like. Either way, I’m a lot happier with the gluten free substitutes now when I do eat them!
