Challenge Update – 24 February 2015

on February 24, 2015

I started the gluten free challenge on Friday 13 March “to go gluten free until the Coeliac Disease Food and Health Event on 24 February 2015”.  I have decided to continue with it until Easter; as I have only been doing it for 12 days I don’t think that is long enough to give it a good trial. By continuing I will be able to try out some new recipes, find out how quickly I get bored with the limited foods available in the Supermarkets and see how expensive it really is to live off this diet.  I also keep being asked if I feel any different in myself or whether my weight has changed.  I have not noticed anything yet but maybe I will after a longer period on this diet. I am really enjoying the challenge and sticking to it, rigidly.

I don’t usually eat out that much, but over that last couple of weeks I have been out a few times and I am finding it really interesting seeing what cafes and restaurants have to offer.  Usually after a meal I will tell the staff what I am doing, especially as I take photographs of the food and menu.

I will continue the blog for the whole time and will include recipes that I make and other challenges set by my work colleague, Helen.  I would also like to do a proper comparison of the price of gluten free food against non-gluten free food, which will go onto the blog (I have already set up a page ready for this).  I am finding it more expensive, but have had to start from scratch – I have a whole kitchen cupboard dedicated to gluten free food.

Thank you for reading so far and please continue following my blog and sharing your thoughts and comments.
