    Hey guys, Not sure if this is allowed here or which section of the forum I should put this under but... I love reading gluten free blogs for inspiration and recipes and was wondering if you dudes have some good links that you would recommend? Extra bonus if they are dairy free aswell Thanks so much. Love this forum - it's such a lifesaver!!

    I made a yummy vege pasta last night with eggplant, courgettes, capsicum, onion, garlic and a can of diced tomatoes. Very simple but yum
  5. Anyone From New Zealand?

    That is a shame there is not more of us I can imagine it would be very hard in chch at the mo with lots of places shut down. I haven't been there since the earthquakes so can only imagine how terrible it would be. Yeah shopping here is very limited unfortunely . There is about one shelf at each supermarket with a gluten free range. And I've heard that food here is a lot more expensive then other places in NZ, say the North Island. Looking at going to Nelson this weekend so would be keen to have a look around there. I am still adjusting to being gluten/lactose free though so finding it hard to come up with ideas for meals. Are there any brands which are gluten free which are really reliable?

    Thanks for all your tips and support guys. I think I'm gunna do a bit of baking this weekend and see what I can make And yeah I think it will just take a bit of adjusting and I probably won't even notice it anymore. I'm gunna try be more positive from now on. Actually looking forward to the grocery trip tomorrow

    Hi there, I was diagnosed about six months ago with gluten intolerancy and I have recently become unable to digest any dairy products. I am 22 years old and having a hard time coming to terms with my diagnosis. I feel like the odd one out and I go to a lot of parties or BBQs in the weekend where I cannot eat anything. Or my friends will invite me round for tea and I have to say no because they don't realise they can't cook me just a normal meal. I know that it's not the end of the world and a lot of people are far worse off than me but I feel very limited in what I can eat. I quite often get bored with the diet and binge on chocolate and chips or something. I have successfully cut gluten out of my diet and I don't mind this so much as there are a lot of alternative products out there that are gluten free but dairy...I can't seem to cut this out. I LOVE cheese and chocolate! I need to get some willpower and motivation to actually stick to this because it is just making me sicker. I live in a small town in New Zealand too and the gluten free food in supermarkets here is very expense ($8 for a loaf of bread!!). So I am just wondering how you guys keep yourselves motivated to stick to your diets? I live with my fiance and he eats a fair amount of yummy food which I cannot tolerate which doesn't help. I am also after some good snack ideas please. I find myself eating just fruit and veges for snacks which gets really boring. What are some good gluten and dairy free snacks? Does anybody have any good sites with recipies? I work full time and am always busy so I need stuff that is easy to make! Thanks guys
