    I have been having problems with energy levels, skin problems, constipation etc.

    About two weeks ago I decided to go Gluten free, in fact it was grain free for a few days. The difference in my general feeling of wellbeing was massive. I thought the reason for my tiredness all the time was the silly amount of hours I work each week. I decided to have one last binge on a night out with lots of beer and then a bacon sandwich in white bread with brown sauce the next morning. Nothing cures a hang over like a bacon sandwich. That was on Sunday 17/10 and since then I have again been gluten free to the best of my knowledge.

    I feel quite good at the moment, no more gurgles from my stomach. You wouldn't believe how embarrassing a stomach rumble can be when you are in bed with someone, most laugh luckily!

    I have been eating the following:

    Breakfast - a gluten free cereal, I forget the name.

    Lunch would be something like a couple of corn crackers with some ham in the middle or a 100% corn tortilla.

    Dinner would be a steak, chips, veg or something along those lines.

    Snacks have been certain brands of chocolate such as Cadburys, Nestle etc, crisps, snickers (original) which I have been led to believe is gluten-free.

    My only complaint is gluten-free foods tend to be very expensive so I am trying to find a lot of mainstream stuff which I can use.

    Anyone got any suggestions food wise?

    I haven't posted this one before, but feel free to check out the recipes I've put on my website: Tiffany's Recipe Collection. (Please do not copy them onto your website or distribute without credit. I may try to publish these in the not too distant future.) All of them are gluten free, most are casein free, and most don't take very long to make. (I update fairly frequently.)
