Gluten Free Recipe Booklet
For whatever the reason is for someone choosing to follow a gluten free diet, the switch can be hard; completely cutting out items of foods that are considered as staples, such as bread and pasta to the guilty pleasures of pizza and chocolate.
If the gluten elimination is down to an intolerance or a diagnosis of coeliac disease, it is essential that gluten is removed from the diet completely to ensure that optimum health is maintained. If you're going gluten free because you want to feel healthier, we suggest that you first take a look at our Guide to Going Gluten Free before you do!
Although many people perceive the free from lifestyle to be boring and lacking in flavour, with an increasing amount of gluten intolerant people in the United Kingdom, the quality of gluten free foods has rapidly improved over the past few years.
In this blog, we are going to help you by providing you with delicious healthy snacks and recipes for you to enjoy even as a free-fromer. So be inspired and enjoy the delicious tastes of the gluten free products.
A Gluten Free Breakfast
Cereal is a very popular breakfast choice in the UK, but is also one of the most popular foods that contain gluten. For those who are gluten intolerant, this means being gluten free at breakfast can be difficult at first, especially for children.
However, the positive side of this is that you can get creative and healthy in the kitchen and make a delicious and refreshing breakfast.
