I was diagnosed with two autoimmune disorders in the Autumn of 2016. Judging by how tired I had been feeling for the previous two decades and being susceptible to a number of weird unexplained viruses, I think I was half relieved to find out that I had autoimmune disorders. I am now getting the correct treatment and I no longer feel like a hypochondriac!
I trained as a chef in 2010/11 but prior to that I had always worked in an office as a Personal Assistant. I had a dream to open a restaurant by the sea with my Husband. We did open our restaurant but sold it just under two years later when I became unwell.
I am grateful to all the wonderful people that have given me health advice, one very good piece of advice was to go on a gluten free diet and I must say I have fewer flare ups by avoiding gluten. However, although there are many gluten free flour blends that we can buy from any supermarket, it is really difficult to get the same texture in baked goods as those containing gluten. So I have made it my mission to try and create gluten free food that does not taste or feel like gluten free food, if that makes sense?
I am not making any claims that my recipes are super healthy or will make you lose weight, they are just recipes that that are relatively easy to prepare that everyone can enjoy.
I hope you will enjoy these recipes and share them with friends who are lucky enough to be able to eat anything, so that they can see we eat great food too!
The recipes have been tried out on unsuspecting gluten eaters, when I asked them afterwards if they noticed anything unusual about the food the answers were an overwhelming no!
