Gluten free best friends. #glutenfree #celiacs
I’m the one in the middle :)
I made a gluten free, baked vanilla cheese cake! It’s delicious and a bit decadent…
4 tbsp’s golden/light corn syrup
100g gluten-free porridge/rolled oats
90g Digestive biscuits
45g cup caster/granulated sugar
450g cream cheese
100ml sour cream
105g caster/granulated sugar
190g clotted or extra thick double cream
1 vanilla pod, split
200ml sour cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
Heat the oven to 160c and grease a cake tin with removable sides.
In a pan melt the butter with the golden syrup over a low heat. Mix in the biscuit, oats and sugar.
Press the resulting mixture into the bottom of the cake tin.
Whisk all the cheese cake ingredients together. And poor the mixture into the tin.
Bake for an hour or till golden brown and when shaken it should firmly wobble.
Mix the topping together and pour it on top of the cheese cake and bake for a further 10 mins.
Cool and refrigerate. Voila!
Watermelon cupcake! Yes! #cupcakes #celiac #gfhappiness #coceliac #glutenfree
do i actually have to start eating gluten again to get tested for celiac??? that sounds like a hell world of abdominal pain
For an accurate result on a celiac test, yes you do have to be on quite a bit of gluten for it to actually be the right answer.
Whitby gluten free fish and chips!!
So a while ago now we had a lovely day out to Whitby. Normally when we go, we don’t decide until around lunch time, so we never normally have to plan food while I’m there. This time though we decided earlier on in the day and to be honest, I was craving chip shop chips!! I remembered that when I was diagnosed as coeliac I was given a huge pack full of information by my consultant as well as my dietician and I vaguely remembered there was a list of recommended gluten free places to eat within the million sheets of paper! I found the list in my masses of paper!! So my list said that there were two places in Whitby that did gluten free food. One of them I knew of, but I also knew that there were alwaaaaays queues outside (and I am not the queueing type of person when I’m starving)… so we decided to try the other one which was the Quayside.
When we got there, I wasn’t sure if they would do gluten free take away so we went inside to sit down and it’s such a sweet place!! Everyone was so nice and helpful. I explained that I was a coeliac and they told me that the menu showed me what I could eat and to just tell the waiter. When I looked at the menu it was so easy!! Everything I could eat had a (G) next to it and they even had gluten free beer!! As you can see, I was spoilt for choice and I could have their homemade tartare sauce too. I had gluten free cod and chips with tartare sauce and the other half had the same but non- gluten free. When our food came I barely even had time to take any pictures, it literally smelt and looked amazing.
Ohhhh I want to go back now, just thinking about it makes me so hungry, I’m not even emphasising their food is absolutely lush! Also, I went back a couple of weeks later and they do do takeaway as well!! You have to wait a couple of minutes longer, but that’s no biggy because I’m guessing the gluten free food is cooked to order.
I definitely recommend the Quayside in Whitby!!
Hi! I was on Schar's website and compared what they have in the US and what they have in Italy. They had a lot more variety in Italy, and I was wondering if you knew anything about if these products will make their way to the US at any point. Thanks!
I’m not sure what their plan is to be honest, I know in general there are just so many more options for gluten free in Europe than there are in the US, at least that’s how it was 20 years ago when I went and they already had GF grocery stores.
I hope they bring more of their products over here soon, but not really sure what their marketing plan is.
Today’s installment of Hilariously Inappropriate Ads Google Shows Me:
High quality, great value gluten conveniently available in bulk with fast shipping!
Maybe they are trying to fucking kill me.
(What I was actually searching for: a source of the Heinz GF pastas, preferably for under goddamned £5/bag before shipping. Because none of the supermarkets near us have been selling it for a good while now, so I have not been eating much pasta besides Asian rice noodles. It’s that much better than most of the other stuff available. It actually behaves like regular pasta, and they put out the only GF elbow macaroni I have seen here besides the £5 small boxes at Totally Swedish. I really don’t get that, because people here eat some macaroni and cheese too…)
Do any of my gluten free friends out there have any good quick or semi quick lunch or meal ideas?
I’m tired of turkey sandwiches all the time lol…and I just got the diagnosis of also being allergic to milk, tomatoes, celery, starch you know just adding to the list over here.
ANY help or ideas would be appreciated!
My lunch generally consists of a lot more snack small type foods than one big meal, I generally bring yogurt (which you can get lactose free pretty easily), carrots, crackers, hummus, corn tortillas lunch meat and cheese that I wrap up into a little wrap type thing, a peach, and some glutino pretzels.
All things that are very quick to prepare, but can also be substituted easily if you start getting sick of them. The hummus, yogurt, and lunch meat give me enough protein and the corn tortillas are a LOT cheaper than gf bread.
Any of my other followers have suggestions??
