Day one – the gluten-free challenge – how is it going? Well fine actually – I have done good so far, but less than 24 hours in so perhaps that isn’t too surprising. Nearly had one mishap this morning though, or what would be classed in the health service as ‘a near miss incident!’ My alarm clock decided to ring VERY early – I don’t know why, this woke me up, disturbed my sleep and when I eventually managed to drag my body out of bed and go down for breakfast, I reached in the cupboard and took out the box of cereal that is too high in barley malt – poured a bowl – then realised. Had to put the cereal back in the box and get a new bowl. Opened the gluten-free cereal and had that with skimmed milk, a handful of raisins and two tablespoons of gluten-free cherry yoghurt – nice!
The picture above was my lunch consisting of
1/2 packet of brown rice fine noodles – pour on boiling water till soft, then drain and cool.
2 inch slice of cucumber – cut lengthways
2 sticks of celery – cut lengthways
2 radishes (for colour)
2 tablespoons of gluten-free sweet chilli
I had this with 1 apple and 1 banana.
Waiting now for my evening meal of jacket spud and gluten-free baked beans – yum!
Last night I emailed the hotel and requested a gluten-free breakfast – they were very fast in responding, but I also need to ask them to bring my breakfast separately should it be a free for all buffet – breadcrumbs included! 😦
This is what I requested – we will see what happens, although it might be difficult to tell if some contamination has occurred 😉 but this is no different to what some people will experience.
