As many of you know I am a Coeliac, which means I can’t eat gluten and have to stick to a gluten-free diet.
I was diagnosed as a very small child so I’ve been living with this condition all my life. Although there have been many times that this has caused me much annoyance like when you go out for a meal and the only dessert you can have is an ice-cream and everyone around you is tucking into Hot Chocolate Fudge Cake – that.
I am grateful for the leaps and bounds that have been made in producing more and more gluten-free food and that we’ve moved away from the bread in tins to fresh buy off the shelf type bread (the only freshest bread is the stuff you make yourself).
I know I’ve harped on about it but as I tuck into a gluten-free chocolate covered digestive on the bus on my way to Zumba I do give a lick of the lips of thanks!
