You know when you hear about an idea and you wish you had thought of it… well that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about Allergy Riders.
Allergy Riders is a fun and simple food labelling systems for those with dairy, gluten, egg and nut allergies as well as those who choose to eat vegan. The range consists of cupcake baking cups and food flags.
Personally, I get nervous when going to a function that they will place my ‘special’ food near everyone else’s ‘normal’ food and therefore it will get accidentally eaten before I can More >
Every year on our birthday my sister and I get to choose what we would like for dinner and every year when we were growing up I chose roast chicken and vegetables with my sister choosing lamb shanks. These days I generally don’t choose roast chicken as I have come across so many amazing recipes in the last couple of years, however my sister still chooses lamb shanks.
My sister came over for dinner on the weekend, and even though it wasn’t her birthday Mum suggested we have lamb shanks, justified by the fact that it is rare that we are More >
Once of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to try and avoid foods with preservatives, thickeners and artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners. Generally this means going back to basics and making things yourself. However if you look around there are a number of these products available.

It was my friends birthday and I wanted to make her a cake. She has a dairy allergy and as I wanted a cake that I could also eat (is that so bad?) I needed a dairy and gluten free cake.

I was slightly concerned at first as a couple of months ago I attempted a cake with whole oranges More >
I was recently introduced to the company Syndian, a company who produce completely natural products, meaning no additives, supplements, enhancers, emulsifiers, flavorings, binders, preservatives coloring or boosters! Now it wasn’t this that attracted me to their products, it was the fact that because their products are natural it means that they are gluten free. They are also vegetarian and mostly dairy free and vegan.
I stocked up on some of the burger patties and bites when I visited their factory shop in Mulgrave, NSW to store in the freezer for quick and easy More >
I was recently introduced to pilpel dips during our Melbourne Cup lunch at work. Having coeliac and gluten and dairy intolerant employees always makes these kind of work functions a challenge, however we always manage to have an amazing spread of food. Our Melbourne Cup lunch was no different with bread (gluten free and glutenous), crackers, antipasto items including sundried tomatoes, ham, salami and olives, prawns and a selection of pilpel dips.
pilpel dips are all gluten and dairy free simply because the chef believes that you shouldn’t add anything to food that’s not essential to the flavour. At our More >
