Day 2

Hiya GFrees,

So it’s been another day in the gluten-free kitchen.

For my random breakfast I had Gujarati snack (gluten free) fenugreek bread with some spicy tomato chutney, mint tea, an energy ball and a teaspoon of peanut butter.

Yes, I know. Not the healthiest but hmm!

For dinner, I had some rice vermicelli. It tasted better than it looked 😎 I would normally use flat rice noodles but I didn’t have any so had to use the thin vermicelli instead.

I have some leftover to take with me to work for lunch tomorrow. 

It’s my niece’s birthday tomorrow and i think we may be going out for a meal – let’s hope dinner will be safe eeks!

Day 1

Hey GFrees!

I’m so excited. I have a (gluten free) kitchen all to myself for 3 whole weeks! 

I made spicy moong dal or MUG as us Gujarati’s call it. My mum’s mum used to make it every Monday – “Mug Monday’s” and so we like to have it on Monday’s also 🙂

It was delicious! (and I made plenty so I know what’s for lunch tomorrow 😊)

Cheesy Update

Hey GFrees,

So it’s been about 3 months since I gave up all dairy foods – butter, spreads, cheese and ghee (😣😢), milk, the whole lot. I really enjoy alternative milk. I think I’ve really mastered understanding which milk tastes best with what – soya milk in tea and coffee, hemp milk with cereal, almond milk in smoothies. Never make a cuppa with hemp milk!!!

However, yesterday, I sort of reached my breaking point. I missed cheese and pizza too much. 

I munched a whole gluten free one. It was so delicious and I even had double cheese as a topping. The moment was perfect! I had it in the car whilst the rain was pouring and listening to Emeli Sandé’s new album❤

I feel ok today. Just the odd ache here and pain there..but I don’t feel that I’m ready to give up cheese, yet. I am so underweight at the moment and my BMI is coming out under 18. I think once I put a bit of weight on, I will give it another go. But for now, I hope that the cheese and ghee will help me to put on weight because I actually look like something off the walking dead at the moment. and I feel it too🙁
I’ll keep you updated.
