Gluten free breakfast

5 days into the skiing holiday and although I had packed in my snowboard bag a half loaf of g-free bread and some cereal I was on the look out for something a little more substantial.

Of course everyone else is chowing down on croissants, bacon sandwiches and in some cases… bacon in croissants!!! So last night I popped to the supermarket for some spring onions and eggs. And this morning got up a bit earlier to make my bacon and m spring onion omelette with a sprinkling of cheese. It doesn’t look quite cordon bleu… but… it was wonderful. And what’s more, my mate had one too… followed by a round of toast! 

Set up for another day bombing around on the slopes, and looking out over the horizon it is misty and I think snow is on the cards in the next few days.

Holiday reading

Even when you are going on holiday to a ski resort, and you know you are going to be spending most of your time on the slopes I always think it is good to have a good read ready.

Mr T and I have come away with 2 of our best friends, who we actually met for the second time about 8 years ago. To cut a long story short we met the McGugans in Finland originally, didn’t swap contact details but got on really well. 3 years later we bumped into them again in a ski resort in Andorra! And the rest is history as they say. Anyway. I digress!

I have got my kindle loaded up with books..:. But then this little beauty caught my eye…


Ha ha! I didn’t buy it. BUT if I did want to read something a little tongue in cheek about going gluten free this is what I might read. In the meantime I will stick to my kindle and crack on with come of the gluten free treats I am sourcing on my Andorra ski trip! 

Delicious gluten free treats

It’s a freezing Friday evening up in Aberdeen tonight. Work is over for another week, there is a light covering of snow outside and I’ve got a fresh set of PJ’s on. Time to snuggle down under a blanket with the dogs and a hot water bottle, get caught up on the soaps and relax!

But it does make me feel like it’s also time for a spot of comfort eating. The kettles on, and I’m on the hunt for some tasty treats.

Bingo!

Check out these beautiful coffee and walnut slices from sainsburys. 4 in a box and at only 138 calories each… I don’t think I’m going to feel too bad if I have 2!!!

It’s been a while crocodile!

Wow! It has been quite a few years since I wrote anything about gluten free living! I think I lost my thread a little. Work. Life. Lots of excuses.

But you will all be super pleased to know I haven’t been completely naughty an di have managed to stay gluten free… mostly!

And since then my brother O has also discover he is Coeliac too. with far worse symptoms than I get bless him but it appears to have started in his mid 20’s. The interesting thing is that O is a twin… and his twin brother E does not appear to have any problems with wheat whatsoever.

Anyhoo – after a brief (3 year brief) period of respite I am going to have another bash at documenting my gluten free living! And O’s mishaps aswell.
