Finding a healthy gluten free ready meal can be quite tricky, but Kirsty’s range of meals is providing some healthy options that are also dairy free with some vegetarian options.  I have tried the ‘Moroccan vegetables with quinoa’ and ‘Spanish chicken with brown rice’ and enjoyed them both.  I have been doing the fast diet […]

Las Vegas – surprising gluten free finds

Las Vegas – surprising gluten free finds

We spent Easter in Las Vegas (4 days was just the right amount of time to spend there) and I found plenty of gluten free options.  We stayed at Bellagio and thought it was a great central spot to stay and loved the fountain displays at the front of the hotel, which we could see […]

The O2 Stadium – Greenwich

The O2 Stadium – Greenwich

On a recent visit to the Etihad cable car, I had a quick look around the O2 stadium as I hadn’t been there since it was “the Millenium Dome experience”. If you have an event to go to there, there are plenty of restaurants that offer gluten free at O2 arena: Wagamanas Las Iguanas Nando’s […]

Amoy rice noodles – straight to wok

Amoy rice noodles – straight to wok

These noodles seemed to disappear off the market for many months, but it is fantastic they are back, as I think they are the best ones for a quick stir fry. Inside are two x 150g sealed packets which are indicated as two serves, however I usually only use one packet in a stir fry […]

Cinnamon fingers

As all coeliacs know, there is no shortage of gluten free brownies so sometimes we just want some variety and these cinnamon fingers are a great addition to the market. I found them at As Nature Intended (Chiswick) and now regularly buy them.  I think they are also available at Whole Foods Market.  They are […]

Cotto – gluten free Italian

Cotto – gluten free Italian

Since I moved to London, I noticed Cotto kept coming up on coeliac forums as a great place to try if you are on a gluten free diet.  I have finally visited Cotto and loved it! It is a small family run traditional Italian restaurant.   Almost everything on the menu had a gluten free option […]

Chateau Villars – amazing gluten free in France

Chateau Villars – amazing gluten free in France

  We planned our holiday in France around being able to visit Chateau Villars after seeing it advertised in the Coeliac UK magazine and we weren’t disappointed! Apart from being in gluten free heaven, the hospitality shown by the two owners, Kevin and Bill was outstanding. Villars is in the Dordogne area of France.  The […]

Santorini – naturally gluten free

Santorini – naturally gluten free

We visited this lovely Greek Island in June and the sun was glorious – perfect blue skies and amazing blue sea surrounded by volcanic rock (the beaches have black sand!)   I have to admit I was worried about eating gluten free in Santorini as my usual pre-travel search came up with ZERO restaurants (this […]

Greenwich market – gluten free

Greenwich market – gluten free

By on July 7, 2013 in UK markets & venues with 0 Comments

I don’t know how I’ve missed this gem on previous visits to Greenwich, but I guess I have just headed straight to the Cutty Sark or to Greenwich park and haven’t veered into the shopping area.  We stumbled across Greenwich market which is an undercover market, but is still a bit open to the elements.  […]

Melbourne gluten free fish and chips

Melbourne gluten free fish and chips

For a coeliac, getting gluten free fish and chips is not a matter of “just going for fish & chips” like it is for normal people. For us it is planned exercise and we often travel miles to have it as it is such a rare treat. If you feel like this, then you have […]
