  1. Hi, Thanks so much for this! I have just been browsing and found this and your answer has REALLY helped! Thanks so much'!!
  2. If you are in the UK, I use Doves Farm Active yeast, Works a charm
  3. HI, Have you possibly got a recipe and ingredients for a pie crust? I have tried making a crust before but for some reason gluten-free flour just doesn't like it. I'm wondering if it is something else in the recipe that mixes with the flour or something? Anyhow, ingredient suggestions? Thanks so much! T.xx
  4. I only really like Doves Farm but that is only because it is the only one available to me I do really like it though!
  5. HI!! I had the same thing a few weeks back. I had some blood tests for something else but the Folic Acid levels came back as lower than they should be. I always eat food that is high in Folic acid (I practically OD on avocados!) but the levels were low for whatever reason. The doc didnt read anything into it, instead just gave me a months supply of supps and it was all back to normal. I had been feeling uite lower energy wise than normal. I am a lot better now though. It is related to Coeliac disease although I cannot remember why
  6. YAYAYAY! Thank you!! I just hope the UK sell this/ Preferably in Tesco or Sainsburys as they are pretty much the only stores actually near us that have a gluten free section. I almost never go down the cereal isle as I always go to the free from section but if these are in the main cereal isle thatd be great. Do you know if these are sold in the UK?
  7. Hi, thanks for your reply. Firstly, squidgy means soft and spongy. like a soft, spongy, moist cake Now onto the pastry The sort of pastry i want to make is for pasties, pies and tarts. Hope this helps
  8. Hi Everyone! I have never met anyone who has had the lucky experience of being able to make homemade pastry with gluten free flour. I have tried it on numerous occasions and it has never worked out. It always crumbles and breaks apart. It never goes anywhere near squidgy which is what it should be like. Has anyone else had any luck and if so, how did you do it and what did you use?
  9. Going Vegetarian?

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. I'm not going to cut out sweets that have gelatine or anything in. I'm only cutting out the things that have actual meat in- whole meat: (chicken/pork/beef etc). Will also cut out completely things like pate that is made from pigs liver and things like that but little bits I will still eat. I don't eat junk food. I like vegetables and eat healthily. Stir fry and cheese/tuna/cucumber sandwiches. I think I did misunderstand her. Thanks for clearing that up.
  10. Going Vegetarian?

    Thank you for letting me know. I had no idea about this. I don't eat that much dairy so will have to eat eggs more than I do now. (Which, to be fair, is quite a lot already). I haven't actually heard of the TBP (I don't do/ know that much stuff about the body- believe it or not!) so will do a bit of research. Thank you so much!
  11. Going Vegetarian?

    Thank you. The Quorn chicken and quorn mince in Tesco (are you in UK?) is gluten free. Not sure about the other stuff but would imagine the plain quorn meat alternatives are mostly gluten free. Thanks
  12. Going Vegetarian?

    You mean you wouldn't consider going vegetarian safe for a coeliac? Why only in the US?
  13. Going Vegetarian?

    Not all of them. The plain chicken, mince etc is gluten free. There are pies and things which aren't but as the quorum is in the frozen section, there is a free from section right next to it and some of spit actually overlaps. I.e. There are gluten free quorn products.
  14. Going Vegetarian?

    I've decided to go vegetarian and was wondering if anybody else had done this after they have found out they are Coeliac? I'm planning on eating Quorn or just no meat at all if needs be but as there is a massive stock of Quorn supplies in Tesco (Quorn Chicken, fillets, mince, pies, steaks, etc) it won't be a problem. Anyway, what have peoples experiences been? I'm in the UK by the way
  15. I have been blood tested a few times but it has all come back negative. However, the doctors have said that the blood test is not always conclusive. I had one that showed something was different but the doctors where so useless that they didn't follow it up at all, no matter how much I asked. Yeah, I am in England, UK. I am always careful when buying food stuffs and never buy anything that has wheat in. I've never heard if codex wheat starch but will keep an eye out. I also never eat oats. If i do, I buy the smallest pack of gluten free oats from the health food store as I will end up throwing them away. I pretty much never use/eat oats. Thank you
