After being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and living gluten free for a year, I decided that I wanted to share my experiences, so I started this blog.
I hope that you enjoy my restaurant reviews, gluten free product reviews, and gluten free recipes. But, you don’t need to be on a gluten free diet to enjoy my reviews and recipes, so have a look and feel free to comment!
One day last summer a friend and I were walking along the Thames soaking up the sunshine looking for a place to have lunch. Whilst walking past The Real Greek we noticed a lunch deal that looked too good to miss. I can’t remember exactly what it was but it was similar to the current promotion they are running, two course meal for £10 (you can register for the deal here).
Not only was the deal attractive but The Real Greek at Bankside has tables outside for those (few but amazing) sunny days.

Looking for a gluten free alternative to couscous, or just a change from rice and quinoa? I got this recipe from Jamie’s 15 minute meals and I absolutely love it.
All you need to do is chop up half a cauliflower head and pulse in a food processor until finely blended.
Place in a bowl with cling film on top and microwave for 7 minutes.
It’s that easy and tastes great, here I served it with another one of Jamie’s recipes, Jools’s Favourite Beef Stew which I also highly recommend!

Leon is an awesome restaurant if you are looking for healthy, reasonably priced food on the go. Oh and they label all of their menu items as to whether they are gluten free, wheat free, daily free, low Glycemic load, low in saturated fat, vegetarian, vegan, nut free and treat foods so pretty much all dietary needs are catered for!
Having a Leon so close to work means I have managed to sample a number of different dishes.
From the lunch/dinner menu I have tried the chilli chicken rice box, Thai green chicken curry, char-grilled chicken and chorizo salad and the Leon More >
I was very excited to be invited to a Gluten Free Tweet Up over the weekend at Vozars, a gluten free cafe, deli & restaurant in Brixton Village. What is a Gluten Free Tweet Up I hear you asking? Well basically those who are gluten free and who are on Twitter, get together for a dinner at a gluten free friendly restaurant.
Vozars was an obvious choice as not only are the entrees, mains and deserts all gluten free, they also stock gluten free beer. Though it was a cold London winter evening I started with the gluten free beer, Celia, More >
This is just a short post for all of those in London who are looking to make a gluten free Christmas Day meal.
I was pleasantly suprised to find products, in particular, gravy and custard, naturally gluten free as opposed to getting them from the free from isle (which actually didn’t have any gravy or custard).
Now I could have made both of these products from a powder base/scratch but unfortunately I didn’t have the time and since the two products below were the first I picked up and happened to be gluten free I thought it was just meant to be!

I don’t usually go into places like Pret A Manger, Eat and Starbucks unless I am just going to get a coffee. In the past I have found that the only gluten free items these shops stocked were of the sweet variety.
However I decided to go into Pret the other day to see if they had any gluten free breakfast items. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, and excited, to find an Egg & Protein Pot as well as a Salmon & Quinoa Protein Pot, both gluten free.
