Coeliac Uk

When I was first diagnosed a year ago coeliac Uk was one of my first ports of call.
It’s a great resource, then send you a directory each year with foods safe to bug in supermarkets.

This years directory is huge compared to last years! Great news for us coeliacs 🙂
They also send out a magazine every now and again. Full of what’s going on, events and recipes.
This month a fabulous Chinese recipe was included I gave it a go and it was fabulous!

It cost around £24 to join which pays for the directory and also pays for extensive research.
Well worth the money for such a useful charity for us coeliacs, if you haven’t joined please do consider it.

Today’s lunch

So lately I’ve been busy with work 👎 self employment has it’s pros and cons. Having to do it all yourself is a con.
However… I’m back.
I thought if start a what I ate today thing.
So today’s lunch a roast chicken (roasted over the weekend for this weeks lunch) and avocado sandwich.
The best bread I’ve found so far is Genius triple seeded. For once this is a bread that doesn’t taste of sugar! Woohoo!

Then as a drink. For Christmas I had a nutri bullet- love it! I blast everything!
It’s a great way of getting lots of fruit in and at the moment calcium is important to me. Apparently I have the beginning of osteoporosis… Nice!
So today- frozen mixed berries- about 1/3 of the cup.
Honey- a good squirt
2 tablespoons of chai seeds
Topped up with milk
And there we go- blast!
Healthy and filling 🙂
