I just had a right cheeky snack
I'm afraid it's nothing Weight Watchers would track
I don't know where the inspiration came from
but it felt really good in my tum
It was gluten free toast with a layer of cheese puffs
Wotsits really but the Aldi stuff
Then cheese grilled till it did melt
you've really no idea how this bit of junk felt
What a weird combination which I've never had before
I suppose at fifty it's good to explore
I am a student, is it a student thing
or are my taste buds just having a fling
I don't know if I need an excuse
it was all gluten free so what's the use
It filled a gap deep inside
maybe my cheesy puff toastie will trend worldwide
I went to the supermarket yesterday
a lot of gluten free products they had on display
There is so much more choice nowadays
thank goodness cus eating gluten free ain't no phase
We need this stuff to feel well
otherwise our tummy's can be in complete hell
Everyone appreciates gluten free food being around
The only thing is it can cost the extra pound
No it ain't cheap to eat gluten free
to pay a bit more, well it will just have to be
Some things are never quite the same
but I wouldn't up this gluten free game
So a pat on the back to the shops out there
who stock up on food that we can bear
The cafes and restaurants who also provide us with grub
oh I can't wait for that first gluten free meal back at the pub!
I tried to make a gluten free pizza the other day
rolling the dough out was fun as it just wouldn't stay
I picked it up and it broke in two
I was getting in a bit of a do
I used tons of flour to make it less sticky
now the maker of this pizza mix was taking the micky
Somehow I had to get this onto a tray
and into the oven without delay
I don't know how the proper pizza people cope
when I looked at my holey efforts there was just no hope
but we all know gluten free things can fall apart
usually it's the gluten that keeps stuff together for a start
I did get it rolled out after a few go's
even if I got covered in flour from my head to my toes
The fillings went on and into the oven it was cooked
In the end it tasted gorgeous, I'm totally hooked
Pyclets can be gluten free
I've recently had some delivered to me
Really tasty and in all sorts of flavours
I'm becoming the envy of all my neighbours
There are chocolate chips and one's packed with cheese
if there are quite a lot of them we just give some a freeze
There are veggie ones and also dairy free
just go along to the website and you will soon see
So thank you for our pyclets we love them so much
I appreciate the gluten free option, it is a lovely touch
Keep doing what you're doing, making all the people smile
and every day going that extra special mile

The other day I asked the other humany people in the house if we needed anything from Tesco and my son piped up that we needed eggs. I said that we had eggs but he said no eggs!!! He meant left over Easter eggs that were going cheap. Nice idea I thought, good man, taught him well over the years. So I went on a mission.
They had a lot of mini egg type things going cheap and no big eggs except for the last two remaining Free From eggs which said a lot really. I mean the poor dairy free, wheat and gluten free just gets left behind like no one ever wants a chocolate egg without milk eh?
Well I do and for a discounted price I bought the last two. This was obviously to make them feel they were just as good as the other dairy products and just as loved you understand. Well I have to say they are very nice. I haven't pigged them both but I have eaten one, honest!
I have to say that free from chocolate is very light, it doesn't make you feel as though you've eaten the whole of Cadbury's and it isn't sickly or rich. This may be a disadvantage as you can, in fact eat more I suppose, oops. The big egg was accompanied by some small truffle type chocolates which were equally nice, I mean it's chocolate isn't it? It's all nice.
You will notice the difference if you are a chocolate expert and know what you like but for those who have to stay away from the old dairy it's a good replacement. It looked nice in it's Tesco Finest packet and I thought I got a bargain. Would I have paid full price? Well not sure as I don't really have a problem, with full on, fully leaded milk chocolate but it was nice to try it.
That's the time to buy chocolate eggs, after Easter.....so cheap. Some are cheap anyway when they are released after Christmas so probably good to buy then. You never quite feel like it though when you've just stuffed yourself full of Celebrations and Quality Street after the festive period and it's always a shock to even think about Easter that early.
So I now need a low fat diet of some sort to get over the chocolate binge but hey I'm sure I'll work it of in some way. Bye to chocolate and hello salad.
Thank you fro reading today, please pop by tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday but for now take care.
Crikey how hard is it to be gluten free and vegetarian? Well easy really if you are cooking some recipes that involve fresh ingredients but when I'm looking at veggie mince and sausages, well a lot of seem to contain wheat.
I'm not taking it too seriously I suppose, but I have fell out of love with meat. I don't seem to enjoy preparing it or eating it these days. I don't fair too well as a serious vegetarian as I don't like mushrooms or peppers so I am not onto a good start. There is still stuff left though and I am enjoying finding new things to eat.
I know the Quorn range has a lot of gluten free products but here again I stumble on a problem. I have eaten Quorn before and have been poorly sick so I am a bit reluctant to try it again. I'm not sure whether it has something I am allergic to or that it just doesn't agree with me. Maybe something is just telling me that this veggie thing not a good idea.
Luckily I do like a lot of other veggies so I might get through and all I'm looking for really is meat substitutes but I suppose it is a big debate as to why? If I am giving up meat why do I want something that looks like meat? It's because I really like a bolognese or a chilli so I would like a bit of mince. If anyone knows a gluten free one then please let me know.
I enjoyed a lovely vegetarian roast dinner last weekend which was basically a plate full of roast vegetables with a gluten free cauliflower cheese and gluten free gravy and it was so tasty, I didn't miss the meat at all. I will keep trying, after all if it's what I want to enjoy my food then I will work around it. Who knows I may even get used to mushrooms and peppers!
Thank you for reading today, as I've already mentioned, if you do have any recommendations for gluten free products I can eat then let me know in the comments. I will be back tomorrow for Pass the Remote but for now.......
When I see an announcement in the 'free from' world I tend to get a bit excited especially if it involves something as yummy as cheese I'm there! It's so good to. be able to eat the same things that the gluteny people eat.
So when I saw an advert for these Mozzarella Sticks from Morrisons I thought I would go straight down there and get a packet. It only seemed right to cook some up and consume them just to let you know what they were like. It was hell but hey someone has to do it.
They were really lovely, very soft and cheesy and because of the mozzarella, very stringy. They can be found in the freezer department and they take just eight minutes to cook from frozen. brilliant if you want a snack or accompaniment with a main meal. I think the packet would serve two people but I ate the whole lot to myself, call me greedy or just a big cheese fan.
So go and try them and see what you think, they do have a great range of free from food at Morrisons, I am truly impressed.
Thank you for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday so join me then.
Take care for now.
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.
There is more information about the products from Love Something on their website here: www.lovesomething.co
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.
