So far, so good.

Not wishing to shout too loudly being as I still have a weekend to get through <sigh> but I would like to proudly announce that :-

I have managed ten meals Gluten Free!

(I did try to insert a 10/10 image but after four attempts, I’ve given up.  Would have been more impresive if I’d managed it, I know)

Admittedly, four of these have been porridge and fruit, three have been salads and three have been meat and veg but that isn’t the point!  A milestone has been reached and however small that milestone may be, I’m going to celebrate it.  With flapjack, not cake.

My first time!

So, this gluten free thing is an absolute pain. I hate it. Hate it almost as much as I hated WW. I know it’s a case of getting used to it and organised but blah blah, that’s a bit grown up for my liking. I’m approaching this change with a full on toddler tantrum.

I’m trying this weekend to ensure at least one meal each day is gluten free. I kinda failed yesterday but here is today’s lunch. And it was actually nice. I’m going to make it in a tub for lunch tomorrow too.


If anyone has Rachel Allen’s ‘Easy Meals’ gathering dust on their shelf then please could I steal it? Cheers!

Overcoming hurdles

So, not only am I trying to deal with the fact that since my email was hacked, no one can email me and I can’t email them so all my friends think I’m being a sulky, silent mare …… I’ve also been told I need to go gluten free.

Big thing.

I love bread, toast, sandwiches, cakes, pies, biscuits, pasta, puddings, breaded mushrooms, pain au chocolat and everything else. Now I have to try and pretend these things don’t exist.

Initially I thought it would be okay, it’s a cross between Atkins and WW really? But no. Gluten is in everything it seems.

Be patient with me, I sense mood swings and toddler tantrums ahead!
