7 Ways To Make Your Gluten-Free Life Instantly Better!
Let’s face it: being gluten-free can be lonely. I certainly remember feeling pretty miserable at times after my diagnosis of coeliac disease. But that doesn’t mean you have to go through the same thing. Here are 7 ways to make life so much easier for yourself…
1️⃣ The Gluten-Free Haven (Facebook Group):
Join the BEST gluten-free community! We have daily topics where we share experiences, tips, and delicious meals you’ve enjoyed with like-minded people who understand what it’s like to be you. Click here to join.
2️⃣ Mindful Chef Meals:
For a hassle-free and easy way to cook better dinners, treat yourself to Mindful Chef's weekly gluten-free meal boxes. From Braised Chicken Thighs to Mexican Pork Chilli, their dishes are not only delicious but also waste-free! Click here to place your first order.
3️⃣ Dine Out at Coeliac-Accredited Places:
Download Coeliac UK’s app and find out places near you that they approve. Chains such as Pizza Express, Pho and Honest Burgers are great places to start. Get the app here
4️⃣ Healthy Supplies:
Stock up online with gluten-free goodies from Healthy Supplies. Their buckwheat flakes are perfect for an ‘overnight oats’ alternative and they don’t have any may contains. Click here to order.
5️⃣ Foreign Food Labels:
Decode food labels abroad by using Google Lens which will translate into English. This was really helpful for my recent trip to Bulgaria.
6️⃣ Gluten-Free Curry Club (Bristol):
Join our monthly meetups for safe gluten-free food (including poppodums fried in a separate fryer and delicious after-dinner chocs). You’ll have the opportunity to make new friendships in a room full of people who totally understand what it’s like to have to avoid gluten.
Meet-ups are at 7pm every 3rd Monday of the month at Spice Bazaar, Brislington, BS4 5AB (with the exception of the August meet-up which is on Thursday 24th August).
Book your place by popping me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
7️⃣ Strength Training for Healthy Bones:
It’s not all about food; coeliacs are at a greater risk of osteoporosis, but this doesn’t mean you’ll suffer. Take a calcium supplement (Osteocare does a gluten-free version) and incorporate strength training exercises into your routine to take care of your bones and overall well-being. Chat to your doctor, pop to your local gym or book a consultation with a personal trainer to get started on your bone-strengthening journey. And be sure to send me pics of your new muscles!
