DS Gluten Free Salami Pizza

Exciting Moment For Me!
If you read yesterdays post you will know just how excited I was about finally getting to try the DS Gluten Free Salami Pizza. I was like an excitable child! I mean just look at the photo on that packaging, it's pizza heaven. I think even my lovely gluten eater was a bit excited too.

I couldn't wait to rip the box open and see what it looked like, so I did! I tore at the side of the box which actually took some doing and and I pulled the long awaited pizza out...

Prewett's Chocolate Bourbons

Biscuit Heaven
I've been eating a lot of sweet things lately which is a bit unusual for me but as I'll probably be back in full on savoury mode soon I might as well make the most of it.

I've had Prewett's Chocolate Bourbons a few times since being gluten free and they never disappoint. They're a full on chocolate rush that consist of a chocolate biscuit, chocolate filling and milk chocolate coating. A chocoholic dream.

Mrs Crimble's Double Choc Brownies

Mrs Crimble's Know How To Make Brownies
If you're a Free From G follower then you will know that I absolutely adore Mrs Crimble's as a brand. They've been a staple for me since 2009 and I've mentioned them countless times on here, always in a very positive light as is deserved.

I've mentioned these in passing before on Free From G but they're so good that I decided they should have their own post.

Tesco Gluten Free Pizza Bases

Packety Pack
We were hoping that seeing as it said new recipe on the pack, that it would be the same base as the new frozen pizza we had picked up a few weeks before. Just not frozen, obviously!

The bases seemed a little on the small size so we used both but decided on slightly different toppings for each.

Claims For Gluten Poisoning - Is It Possible?

I've been in conversation with an online friend and fellow coeliac about this subject for a couple of years now. As coeliacs, do we have any rights concerning being glutened, either when eating out or when consuming products that are incorrectly labelled as gluten free at home? 

Frozen Goodies And Coconut Woes

I was going to do a product review today but I'll save that for tomorrow, today I'm going to focus on the bewildering realms of the Tesco frozen aisle.

Around this time last year I got mad at Tesco for pulling their DS Gluten Free frozen range and replacing it with Genius products. I'd got used to having pizza again and an odd chicken and mushroom pie and to have those taken away and replaced by something which was harmful to me was annoying. We didn't bother with the frozen aisle for quite some months then I got an email from DS saying that they were available in Tesco and more recently we got a booklet full of free from vouchers, including frozen DS products.

As you'll read if you click on that last link, despite all the green lights that Tesco were stocking DS frozen products, they weren't.

Vita Coco So Much More Than Just A Nice Drink

I've been feeling really groggy since last Sunday. Very, very tired during the day, no get up and go, brain fog, my stomach has been quite unsettled and I've also had a really nasty water reaction on my palms that have left them cracked and sore. I figured it was the stress of the move still pouring out.

Nah ah.

Jungle Tomatoes

So Pretty
What with everything that's been going on I've found it really hard to get excited about food over the Summer, that's changed now that I'm settled into my lovely new gluten free kitchen.

I had to post a pic of these Jungle tomatoes because I was like an excitable kid when I saw them during our shop on Saturday. Not only do they look extremely cool but they taste as good as they look. Fried with a little olive oil and the skins come off super easily, so no worries about my allergy there.

I love looking at good food. Naturally gluten free too!

Ze Move

I wouldn't have blogged about this for probably a long time, if ever as it's not that interesting and I'm pretty much fine stomach-wise, but it's late, I'm awake and I truly have found this move the most stressful long term experience of my life.

Tesco Gluten Free Pizza

I Really Like The Packaging
Leading up to the big move we popped into our small local Tesco and found this. Now this small Tesco is say about a quarter of the size of our usual one, maybe even smaller and not only did they have gluten free pizza but they also had corn fed chicken breasts that we haven't been able to buy at the big Tesco for months. Makes no sense to me but hey. Still no sign of the DS Gluten Free Pizza but we jumped at the chance of trying Tesco's own.
