I often find it hard to find healthy and nutritious gluten free food, especially with muesli and bars. However, I recently came across another company which offers this, Food for Health.
Of their products I first tried their Gluten Free Muesli. This muesli is full of grains and fruits and whilst it is tasty it was not my favourite of their cereals.
Food for Health also have a gluten free bar based on their Gluten Free Muesli. The Gluten Free Bar with Fruit is delicious! Even the non-coeliacs enjoyed this one. This was my favourite of the bars (not More >
I don’t know about you but I love Macadamia nuts… so I was very excited to receive a couple of products from Brookfarm‘s gluten free range. Before I go into the specifics of each product it’s worth noting that Brookfarm is “Australia’s most awarded producer of fine gourmet macadamia products.” Even better is that Brookfarm’s products contain no preservatives or additives.
First up I tried the Brookfarm gluten free Macadamia Muesli and I was impressed. Gluten free muesli’s can be hit and miss, often being very dry and crunchy (not in a good way) however this one was far from that. More >
Wholesome Cook recently posted a recipe on her blog for fluffy ricotta pancakes (with the word fluffy in front you probably guessed they aren’t gluten free) with data and banana butter which caught my eye. I have made gluten free pancakes before but only from the Vitarium packet mix, however I had heard that buckwheat flour is very good for pancakes. I therefore decided to give these ones a go substituting the self raising flour for buckwheat flour and baking powder.
The buckwheat version of the pancakes come out a lot browner due to the colour of buckwheat flour however they were very More >
I was lucky enough to receive a parcel in the mail from Byron Bay Cookie Company all the way from the UK. The UK, I hear you asking. In short, while Byron Bay Cookies were originally baked on an old farmhouse stove in Byron Bay the full range is now baked in the UK. This unfortunately means that there are actually some flavours available in the UK that aren’t available in Australia.
The first cookie I tried, which is available in Australia, was the White Choc Chunk & Macadamia. This wasn’t my favourite cookie as I More >
I noticed a few people tweeting and writing about El Loco so looked it up to see what all the fuss was about. I found out that El Loco cantina “is the first stage of what will be the next addition to the Merivale family of restaurants – an authentic Mexican restaurant.” I was intrigued, especially when I saw the menu with $5 taco’s (with the most expensive dish being $15). I immediately contacted the restaurant to see if I could eat anything and was delighted to find that the taco’s and corn chips were gluten free!
My friend and I therefore More >
As I mentioned in an earlier post we spent a night in Jugiong over the Easter long weekend. After having a (delicious) late lunch at the Long Track Cafe we decided to head to the restaurant at the Jugiong Motor Inn, where we were staying. There is a restaurant upstairs however we decided to stay in the bar, known as the ‘Beer and Bullshit Bar’ as having had a big late lunch we only wanted a snack for dinner.
The staff were very helpful and after listing a few gluten free options I decided on More >
