(main image source) A while ago I received an email from a lady named Thérèse, asking me to share her story with my readers. This is not a common occurrence, but after reading about her journey I really wanted to pass it on to you guys.
Can you believe it? I’m not sure I can! I certainly consider it a grand complement and a great privilege to be featured as Blogger Of The Month in such an acclaimed and brilliantly successful online magazine as The Modern Womans Survival Guide. I can’t believe they picked me out of all the talented and […]
Being on a complete elimination diet and living in sunny Australia poses one giant conundrum; sun protection. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. How can I get broad spectrum high protection without all the gunk?
You’ve been gluten’ed! -What now?
Even though every day should be a celebration of celiac awareness, the official Celiac Awareness Days around the world are possibly the very best opportunity we have to help the world understand more about the disease, and push development in the right direction. Although we all do our bit to raise awareness every day by informing […]
I’ve sure learnt first hand how hard it is to find truly coeliac safe gluten free food options that are not just a substitute for something better. I’ve also discovered how incredibly chemical and processed our treats are, and just how many ingredients it seems to take to make a packaged snack. Must it really […]

GABO or “Great Australian Bake Off” is sweeping over the nation with soggy sponges and crumbling cupcakes in tow. A self-raising baking frenzy is taking off like a rogue blender, and the heavily frosted pink counterpart to the much applauded Master Chef and MKR, is eagerly waiting to claim it’s 15 minutes of fame.

Such as instant restaurant and product tweets, really cool info that I happen to come across, and the odd picture of something awesomely glutenfree -like that insanely delicious chocolate mud cake! Tweet-tweet!
Mother-in-law popped by for a quick dinner-and-dessert visit yesterday, and I thought I’d bake something. I have become “that one who bakes”. I used the to be “that one who brings the fun” and now I bring cake. Not that cake isn’t fun. Just very different fun.
I got glutened last week. Again! And again it happened after what seemed like an endless conversation about pitfalls, followed by nodding and quite convincing agreeance. Never the less, somewhere between waitress and chef the message got lost. Why must it be so hard?
Feel like sushi, but can’t get safe fresh-but-previously-frozen-yet-yummy fish just like that? I sincerely and wholeheartedly recommend making these insanely delicious Hoisin Chicken Maki Rolls! In this post, you’ll find step-by-step preparation, great links, and a video tutorial for maki rolling!
At 00.50 tonight my parents will be touching down on Australian soil for the first time ever. They’re mid-air as we speak, and no doubt dreaming of sunny days and never-ending beaches in the magical land of Oz.
Oh glory, I have found love.. In a wonderful world, far, far away in my wildest dreams, I can pop into a random cafe and pick anything off the menu. I might even have a cold beer with my meal! In my wildest dreams, right? Nope. Not any more!
I woke up completely stressed out this morning, hair in a frenzy and with flustered cheeks. I must have had out-loud heated gibberish discussions all night, as I found myself utterly exhausted and frustrated when I finally woke up.

A roast chicken to warm your cockles I believe I mentioned a bit of rain in my last post. Little did I know. Queensland is now flooded, leaving families without homes and some without their loved ones. We have been indoors for three days, staying at a safe distance from flying debris and the likes. […]
Oh it’s a rough day. Fourth day of rain (which is a big deal here in the Sunshine State), bf away in (sunny!) Melbourne for work, I have a mountain of work on my desk and an even bigger mountain of washing to do. To top it off, in spite of the grey and rainy weather it is unbearably hot […]

I had planned for these to be an in-between-meals protein rich treat over the next week.. but whoopsie, they disappeared rather fast.
I think gluten knows I’ve got something on.. How else can it possibly be explained that I tend to get sick just before birthdays, dinner parties, holidays and anniversaries!
Ever longed for a sweet treat but less keen on the calories? This should satisfy your cravings!
Could we really be drinking gluten every day? I’m not a fan of spreading fear, and I don’t want you choking on your coffee right now. I do however believe in making information available so that each of us can form our own opinion. And why shouldn’t gluten find its way into my coffee? After all, it does have an uncanny way […]
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language, and next year’s words await another voice.” – T.S Eliot Each New Year’s Eve I seem to find myself in a remarkably different place or situation than I could have possibly foreseen the year before.
(Photo from http://www.glutafin.co.uk) I just want to mention that back in the UK I received a lovely heaping hamper of really rather decent gluten-free products from a company called Glutafin. For no special reason other than being a newly diagnosed coeliac!
Keep a herb garden, it’s a very good idea. Sure the watering will drive you crazy, but you can pop out and collect fresh, flavorful herbs at any time for any meal. I use it in hot food, salads, breads, drinks, desserts, decoration, you name it. Not only will herbs lift the flavor of whatever […]
