Gluten free? I am here to help..

...I have eaten this way for over 50 years

  • But for you the gluten free diet may be new and scary?
  • Just been diagnosed with celiac?
  • Or member of your family now has to eat gluten free?
  • Perhaps a friend has encouraged you to eat this way and you want to learn more about it?

For whatever reason the phrase has cropped up in your life, I am here to make things easier for you to understand. 

I was diagnosed with celiac disease as a 7 month old baby. Apart from a brief spell eating the same as the rest of the family, I have been gluten free ever since. 

I am happy to tell you that NOW is the best time to eat this way as there is a greater range of safe foods available than ever before! This includes many gluten free flours along with a wide range of manufactured products. These are easy to find on the high street. No more searching specialized health food shops.

Even if you have never cooked from scratch before you will find easy gluten free recipes for every meal here. I have also included snacks and treats for you to enjoy.

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.
