((BOUNCE)) – Is this the new exercise craze?

First off, I want to apologise for not posting a blog in … god knows how long! It’s been a crazy few months, moving in with my boyfriend and having a crazy time at work. This also meant that my usual exercise regime has slipped…oppps. Going from 3-5 days a week in the gym to…

Chinese 5 Spice Kale Chips

Now, I’m not sure about you but when I was little I used to HATE greens. My Nan used to pile high my plate with ‘curly kale’ and I would gag at the thought of eating it.  Now you’ll find it has become one of those ‘superfoods’ that’s splashed everywhere as a miracle food that…

Free From Takeaway Made at Home

Takeaways. A nightmare for those with allergies and auto immune conditions like me. But, you can just as easily make it at home…and it doesn’t take forever to prep! My free from sticky salmon with egg fried rice and Chinese stir-fried vegetables was a hit – why not try it for yourself? Sticky Salmon Ingredients:…

Buko Coconut Jam

Coconut jam you say? No…you’ve lost me. I’d never heard of it either before a few weeks ago. But it does exist and it’s bloomin’ lovely! I don’t normally eat that much bread (she says) but my freezer had a malfunction this weekend and so I am  now left with a whole batch of defrosted…

Flowers On Her Birthday

There is only one word for how I feel right now and that is proud. My little brother who was made to stand in front of family members at the age of 3 and sing ‘My Old Mans a Dustman’ (my dad made us listen to old LPs when we were younger before we went…

A little ‘Thank You’ once in a while wouldn’t hurt

‘Working 9-5 what a way to make a living’ Thanks Dolly – that’s my daily life. 9.30am-5.30pm (most days) and the monotony that sometimes comes with it. Reports where numbers jumble in your head, eating lunch at your desk because you can’t face sitting on your own in the canteen and presentations, lots and lots…

Buy British…Buy Seasonal

When we buy our groceries from the various supermarkets in the UK, do we actually look at where our food is from? I know for one – I don’t look at where my strawberries are from – or whether they are supporting British Farmers. But why wouldn’t you buy a product that is grown in…

Just because it’s ‘Gluten Free’…

…Doesn’t mean it should be any less quality than other ‘normal’ products. I am fed up of buying gluten free products from many of the UK’s large grocers, and them being of a lesser standard than non-gluten free products you would find on the shelves. Why should the shelves be stacked less often? Why should  crumpled…

The Little London Bunch

There is nothing I love better than a bunch of flowers. I’d fill my flat with them every week if I could afford it! The Little London Bunch is exactly what is says on the tin. A little bunch of flowers delivered in London – well that’s like any florist in London, right? Wrong. Read…

New Adventures! On wards and Upwards

So, I am migrating my Gluten Free blog to a new lifestyle blog….how exciting. Keep an eye out for all things gluten free still, with the addition of all things lifestyle (gym, healthy eating, interiors etc).      

‘But you don’t NEED to gym!’

So very often I get the line ‘Why do you go to the gym, it’s a waste of money and time?’, ‘You don’t need to…you’re gluten free, so you will always be skinny’.  The last quote is something that really bugs me. I am not slim because I am a coelaic. Not at all. I can’t eat…

Delicious Peanut and Ginger Cookies

I just love the Gluten Free mixes from Delicious Alchemy. They have made my life so much easier, from bread to brownies and now I have tried cookies.  Their oaty cookie mix is extremely easy to use, all you need is 75g of melted butter and 30ml of water. These cookies are not a healthy…
