After 50+ years on a gluten free diet...

... its time to share all that I have learned, with YOU!

New to the gluten free diet? Scared? Confused? Don't panic! I have designed this site to make it as easy as possible for you.

I will guide you through the early days on the diet, introduce you to exciting ingredients that are totally safe to eat, and share my tried and tested recipes with you.

You can read my full story here on the site, but first and foremost, I am here to help you get the hang of things. Start your exploration by clicking on the links below...

Eat Well

Whether it is you, or your child, that has to avoid gluten, I am here to share what I have learned to help you live a happy, healthy gluten free life.

Note that I said HEALTHY! I care about you and don't want you to end up having to cope with celiac disease and then have type 2 diabetes on top of that. Take it from me, you REALLY don't want that!

Weight Loss

Doesn't diet mean weight loss? Should I try this if I am not gluten intolerant?

So, many of my gluten free recipes will also be low in sugar and carbs, to reduce the risk of that happening.

Why trust me?

My site is not the only gluten free site on the net! So why should you trust me?

Experience. As I said at the top of the page, I have been on the diet since I was a child, 50+ years ago. I know exactly what I can eat, and what makes me sick by now.

Guidance. My aim is to educate, assist and "be there" for you. 

Recipes. Over the years I have created hundreds of recipes and meals that are safe for Celiacs, while also satisfying the rest of the family.
