Update on the gluten-free diet

Todays blog is very brief as I am packing to go to London for the Allergy and Free From Show but I need to tell you about todays events. My tuna pasta salad was a disappointment I managed to eat about 1/3 of it before I gave in and purchased a gluten-free chicken and salad roll from the hospital cafe. This was very reasonably priced – not much different from the other sandwiches on offer, but it was rather high in calories – 500 Kcal per small roll but it was filling and very tasty. My meal tonight was unplanned and because I am really busy I cooked some rice and used a gluten-free butternut squash soup to flavour it – a bit unconventional but it was very nice and filling. I also ate one of my scones 🙂

I have a different type of pasta to try but this will not be until Sunday, which I assume is the final day of the challenge, but I will try even if it is after awareness week. The picture I have posted was of the stand that I arranged with the local coeliac group last year, we were privileged to have a photo of it in Crossed Grain Magazine.

My speciality is dietary treatment of gut disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, lactose & fructose malabsorption and multiple food intolerances. I have had lots of experience in other areas of dietetics and I wished to start this blog to spread the word about evidence based dietary treatments and dispel much of the quackery that is common with these diseases.
