Why Ali?

Ali’s background

Ali initially worked as an English teacher after graduating from Bath University. She is now an accomplished writer and speaker, regularly taking the guest slot at events including the FreeFrom Food Festival and Coeliac UK. Ali has also written for Gluten-Free Heaven magazine and often appears on BBC radio.

“I began my website ‘Life on a Rice Cake’ because people needed somewhere to go for valuable advice on coeliac wellbeing. There’s a way to make life easier, no matter how difficult things might seem, and I always keep things fun. Life should be fun!”

Ali recently completed the London marathon in aid of Coeliac UK. On a cold & rainy in April 2023 she ran dressed as a banana, complete with stalk. 

Ali lives in Bristol with her husband and two naughty little people who love covering themselves in chocolate.

My story (and why I know what you’re going through)

When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, I felt so alone. Nobody seemed that concerned about me. There were flippant remarks, casual misdiagnoses and ritual humiliation (like being weighed in front of a full waiting room).

And each time I was given a new diagnosis, there’d be a familiar sense of realisation they’d got it wrong again. When the doctors had absolute confidence and conviction I had endometriosis, they cut me open under general anaesthetic and discovered I didn’t.

There were also small acts of incompetence, like the nurse who offered me a biscuit post-diagnosis.

And it wasn’t just the medical profession that caused me frustration. Problems seemed to sprout everywhere. A family member told me my pain was psychosomatic. A ‘friend’ thought if she secretly hid gluten in my food that I’d never know. At work there’d be beige buffets with absolutely nothing I could have except a slice of cheddar. (Much as I like cheese, it’s hardly a well-rounded meal.)

Those were the days when no-one had the internet and allergen information didn’t appear on food. And although a lot has changed, in many ways it’s created a new problem – we’re now swamped with so much information it’s difficult to know where to start.

I remember feeling totally lost. I wish I’d had someone I could have turned to – someone to give me confidence.

So that’s why I’ve created this membership.


When are the masterclasses?


Every 1st Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm.

They'll all be available for you to watch in the membership area.


How will I access the videos of previous masterclasses?

Do I need to have coeliac disease?

You’ll find parts of the membership are tailored specifically for coeliacs. However, if you have another reason to be gluten-free there’s plenty that will be really useful.

How do I make payment?

Via PayPal or debit/credit card when you join.

I need to avoid dairy/egg/I’m also vegan. Will you show me foods I can eat?

Yes! There’ll be so many options for you (and obviously everything we discuss is gluten-free).

My daughter/partner/sibling has coeliac disease. Would it be helpful for me to take part?

Absolutely! Show me a coeliac who wouldn't be hugely appreciative of such a supportive person in their life! It's really helpful for coeliacs to have other people who know how to help them and being part of this membership is a great way to make this happen.

Can I benefit even if I'm not a newly diagnosed coeliac?

Yes! Many people choose to be part of the membership after years of being coeliac. The webinars are aimed at coeliacs who are struggling. So whether it's with your diagnosis or day-to-day living and you need expert advice and tips, there's masses to benefit from.
