After watching TalkBeckyTalk‘s video this morning it made me think about what advice I would have as in January I will be gluten free for two years due to pcos.
I started with reading the Atkins new you book which helped me think about the food I could eat and what carbohydrates to avoid.
For my birthday after I was diagnosed I was given the Gwyneth Paltrow It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, this is a great go to book as she is gluten free so all the recipes are going to make you feel great and she gives you an easy baked sweet potato recipe.
I recently bought the Deliciously Ella recipe book which I cannot stop using, if you want to make some great sweet treats then have a look at this book and her website. With a new book coming out in the new year I am defiantly going to buy it and keep my sweet tooth happy.
Over the years I have found it tricky to eat out always looking ahead of time at possible places to eat to have an idea of what I could order ( I ate a lot of salads)
Nandos – This is always a go to for me as it is all meat with a side of your choice, I normally go for a quarter or half chicken with salad on the side.
Pizza Express, Ask, Zizzi, Dominos -If you like pizza then don’t worry you can get your fix. Last christmas eve at a pizza express myself and my mum found that they started doing gluten free which meant we weren’t going to have to just have a salad like always. Dominos only does gf in a small when ordering.
Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose – Their free from sections will become your new best friend. I have gf bread (genius is the best brand we found), cereal( big oz uses buckwheat) , porridge, frozen pizza and there are gf biscuits, and other sweet treats. I have also found that quourn do gf stuff like sausages and burgers which are nice.
If you are newly gluten and wheat free I hope this helped.
Bye for now
