I have just recently started buying the Free From items from Sainsbury's as they have a fantastic selection. I mean this is just a few items available on the Free From aisle but it's the food available in the fridge that is such a bonus.
There are pork pies, quiches, cheesecake, apple pie and pizza. these are all things I have really missed. I am just loving a bit of pork pie with salad, oh it's just free from heaven. I mean don't get me wrong the other supermarkets have a good selection too but I think Sainsbury's has that bit more.
To have cheesecake as well is bliss, before I've just slobbered over the gluten ones and dreamed of owning my own and now I can. I actually feel as though I have proper food in my fridge and in my cupboards now and I don't have to take any silly risks with gluten food stuff. I know silly me.
So if you are gluten free and dairy free, get yourself to Sainsbury's as there is so much to eat!! Go now.....don't worry about those calories, it's being able to eat and be happy so just go and get something for a treat if you are dieting, you will not regret it.
Thank you so much for reading today, come back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday but for now......
Why go gluten free for fun
if it's not hurting your tum or bum?
So many diets and foods to choose
but going gluten free, your weight you'll not lose
If anything you will put weight on
as food without gluten has to be compensated on
Bread falls apart and cakes turn to crumb
why would you do this unless it's to save your tum?
It takes all of your money out of your purse
that's one reason I'm writing this verse
Another is to tell you it's not all that
unless there is a reason backed up with a fact
So eat the gluten if you can tolerate it well
don't cut it out because your poo or trumps over smell
I've seen some reasons why people eliminate the gluten
it's become more fashionable since the invention of the futon
It's a serious thing if it's to see you right
but not if weightless is your only plight
So before you start allowing this way of eating to be unfurled
it way be just as wise to stick to Slimming World
Thanks for reading today....join me again tomorrow
for Autism Support Saturday
but for now....
Now these are a bit of luxury, exclusive to Aldi, a gorgeous little dessert just waiting to be eaten. Well story is that I did eat it and it was very nice and another one too, no not on the same day, that would be too greedy.
I purchased this flavour thinking that it had fruit in it so it must be good and I also had the Lemon Posset one which contained lemons so again I thought nice and fruity. They do also come in Chocolate and Salted Caramel and a Milk Chocolate flavour so I shied away from those as I though they would contain too many calories. Although I have ditched Slimming World for now I didn't want to go too far.
Secret is though they are all very calorific but they a taste so heavenly. Just have one for a treat now and again and don't think about the calories. They are a gorgeous velvety texture and so you don't have to scoff it all down quick, it's one of those desserts that you see people eating on the adverts, all slow and almost seductive. Oh I say.....we don't normally get saucy on the brew eh?
You do get a prize with these desserts as you are not just left with a crappy plastic container that you can't recycle, I know, I feel your pain Mr Attenborough! Instead you are left with a classy little ceramic pot that you can use again, for more desserts or perfect to put nibbles in. Oh and did I say they are all gluten free as well so go forth an devour yourself in pudding heaven.

Thank you for reading today and I do apologise if I have tempted you into a luxury dessert that you were trying to avoid in Aldi. Quick push the trolley fast past the nice stuff, stick to your Quark and low fat yogurts as I know how it can make a difference and then when you get to target weight treat yourself to one of these.
I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday, crikey how these weeks fly by, I cannot believe it. For now though you take care for now.
These biscuit breaks from Nairn's are blooming gorgeous. Now, you know what I have been like with my new little fetish on coconut just lately well I thought I would give these little beauties a go.
Nairn's have a few gluten free biscuits in their range and in nice flavours. The biscuits are wrapped in little handy packs of three which I like because I can just pop one in my handbag and they are there for an emergency snack. All snacks are an emergency to me, if I need to snack it has to happen straight away and these certainly help in that emergency situation.
I also like that there are just three biscuits in a pack, some of these packs have too many in and you either force yourself to eat all of them ( I know hell eh?) or you decide to save some and are left with the fact that the packet usually doesn't re seal. Random biscuits floating around in a handbag is not acceptable especially if you forget and find them in a month covered in handbag fluff.....not good.
There will never be a totally healthy biscuit but these do contain 35% less sugar, contain gluten free wholegrain oats which are high in fibre and are only 64 calories per biscuit so not bad for a snack and a change from fruit. It does say they are chunky but I think that is a bit misleading, they are a little bit thicker than other biscuits in their selection but if you are searching for serious chunkiness then you may be disappointed.
They taste lovely and I think are the nicest ones in the Nairn's range that I have had the pleasure of eating. I do like that added coconut taste and a chocolate chip now and again. You can get a fruity version if that is your thing, they are available in oats, blueberries and raspberry flavour too.
So give them a go if you haven't already and tell me what you think. Thank you so much for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday but for now enjoy your biscuits and take care.
