Everything Free … Carrot CakelingsĀ 

It has been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to blog, mummy duties and normal day to day life seem to have taken over ever so slightly. With the little time I have during the day when my baby naps, I’ve actually felt quite torn between whether to blog or to experiment with cooking….

Living With A GlutenFree Obsessive

So the way it works in our house is like this; one of us puts the baby to bed while the other cooks. Unfortunately for my hubby to be, I am not one of those ‘have your dinner on the table when you get home’ wives, and so as a result, his cooking skills have…

My Healing ‘Groothie’ Journey so far …

As you know, I’ve introduced a daily ‘groothie’ aka ‘green smoothie’ into my life as an attempt to accelerate my body’s healing process. So far, I have to say that I’ve noticed a massive difference in my energy levels. Before cutting out gluten, grain, diary and all things processed, and drinking the groothies, I would…

The road to health is paved with good intentions

I’ve always thought our relationship to food is a little like a lot of people’s experience with religion. Wait… what?! But think about it. When you’re raised in a religious family, as a child you don’t really question things. If your parents say you’re a Catholic, you’re a Catholic. If your parents take you to…

As it’s valentines, I thought I’d share my first experience of making a recipe that I see a lot in blogs and pins on the Internet. Being a mum, the thing that caught my eye about these ‘gluten free’ pancakes, is that you only need three ingredients; making it quick and easy. Sounds like my…

Does ‘gluten-free’ really mean what it says on the packet?Ā 

Ā In the short time that I’ve experienced a ‘gluten-free’ life, I’ve already realised just how much the food industry is cashing in on those of us who might be seen as ‘deprived’. When I first realised I was sensitive to gluten, I panicked as my diet revolved around all things gluten. My so called healthy…

Because someone has to look out for us …Ā 

Why is it that we are exposed to products that cause us so much harm? Why are the healthy foods that we are encouraged to eat laced with cancer causing chemicals? Why does the FDA allow the deodorant we apply to our skin everyday to contain chemicals that cause Alzheimer’s? Ā The questions I have are…

Today’s Pukka Find

Did you know that crisps can have traces of gluten? Well, I didn’t. It was lucky that on the rare occasion that I do eat crisps, I checked the back of the packet just in case. I assumed that, as I was only buying plain crisps, potato, oil and salt would be the main ingredients,…

Finally … Soya Free Chocolate Heaven

For weeks now I have been searching for a good bar of chocolate that does not contain grain or soy, or traces of either, and to be quite frank, you just wouldn’t believe how difficult that is here in Madrid. On Sunday, I finally found it … a British brand, of course, free of all,…

A Must Make – Gluten Free And So DeliciousĀ 

A month before finding out that I was gluten sensitive, I started to do my own research on Ā the effects gluten has on the human body. I was astonished when I discovered the terrible ways it can impact the body, however, I felt relieved that after all this time, the pieces of the puzzle were…
