Gluten/wheat Free Diets

3 comments

Hi everyone,

Is anyone else following a gluten free diet, for any reason? I've been ill recently and my doctor has advised me to try cutting out gluten. Would be grateful for any advice on recipes/all things gluten free!

Hi Wendy, yes I've lived without gluten for nearly 15 years, since I was diagnosed as coeliac.

At first it's difficult, but you become used to checking everything and you learn the best brands for gluten free goodies! I recommend 'genius' bread, 'Nairn' oatcakes and 'Heck' sausages. You'll soon learn what you like, and restaurants and stores these days are far more aware so there's a lot more choice than there used to be!

Best wishes

I haven't cut out gluten completely, but I do find that too much of those foods isn't good for my stomach. I tend to eat lots of potatoes instead of bread, pastry or pasta. Just as filling and delicious!

There are some good recipes on the app which I believe to be gluten free, that's a great port of call for recipes! No experience of gluten free diets myself though, I eat far too much bread and cakes!

    Hi all! I just wanted to share a new discovery for me. I know juices have become a popular trend, but I hadn't taken much interest until a friend gave me a juicer and now I'm hooked. Green fruit or veggie juice in the morning is the best! I drink 2 per day and I feel so much healthier and full of energy. I think the extra vitamins are what does it. Are any of you juicers aswell?? Would be great to share tips/recipes :)

    Has anyone one else tried this or do any of you regularly grow all your own veggies? I've got a small allotment I'd love to put to good use, any tips for me?

    I was reading this article (below) recently, and it really made me think about the food I eat and genetically modified food in general. I knew it happened with vegetables, but now meat!? What do people think about this? Is it really such a bad thing? I don't understand all the ins and outs of the process, so perhaps somebody more intelligent than I can offer some insight? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/09/canadians-unknowingly-eating-gm-food/
