Chans- Bristols Finest GF Chinese Take Out

Who doesn’t love a good take out every now and then, either as a cheeky treat or because quite frankly you cannot be bothered to cook.

These cravings do not however do not disappear when you are Gluten Free, for a while I basically tried my luck, getting glutened just over 50% of the time, a bit like playing Russian roulette to be honest.

That was until I found out about Chans which is based at the end of Henleaze on Wellington Hill and has a fairly large delivery radius. Continue reading

Friska GF Festive Hot BoxA little while back, I wrote a review on my lunch out at Friska (Link).

Slim Fruits the Gluten, Sugar & Fat Free Sweets from Down Under

I love sweets Skittles, Starburst, Haribo and not to mention JELLY BELLY BEANS!! just to name a few but coming in at over 250cals a time (if your lucky) they have to be relegated to a every now and then, unless you want to be rolled out your house or fly away from being so high on sugar!

Ok so you want some sweets but your trying to be good! I’ll have half a pack thats like half the badness; but unless you are some sort of saint, which I am most certainly am not that never ever works. So you hang your head in shame.

Fruit just isn’t the same and I love fruit, so ARGHHH where do I turn?

Feed me Primal – GF & Paleo Eating in Camden

Feed me primal camden  When I was in London for Toby Morrison’s UK CFS seminar (Link), a friend and I went for lunch at Camden market.

Review: Sainsbury’s Free From Digestive Biscuits

photo 2(8)I brought these biscuits to make the base of my fabulous gluten free banoffee pie (Link) and they really did do the job well, it was a shame however the reason the base for the pie was so lovely was due to the butter and chocolate that I added to it.

I brought 2 packs and had almost 3/4 of a pack left after the pie, however all but one are still in the cupboard over a week later.

 

photo 1(11)So why  you ask are these biscuits still in the cupboard and not in the depths of my belly? Well they are flavorless, have a odd crumbly texture and resemble nothing of a digestive, they are £1.35 (Link) for about 10 biscuits.

Overall opinion Mr Sainsburys you can do better!  So all in all I give them a 2/10.

They only scored the points that they did because they helped make such a yummy pie.


I have reviews loads more GF products so you don’t have to try out the dud ones feel free to check them out 🙂 (Link)

Variety is the spice of life- GF Lunch at Friska

Today a friend asked me if I wanted to meet up for a catch up at lunch. I jumped on the offer to have something other than my standard jacket potato and tuna from my works canteen, pretty much the only GF option.

As I don’t have a full hour break due to being on a phased return to work, I needed something quick and most importantly had a non potato GF option. So Friska on Victoria Street it was. I had been there many times before I was GF and all their food is super tasty and I thought, it is just the sort of place that would have GF options (And I was right!). Continue reading
