I’m Amy and I live in Norfolk with my partner and 3 cats. We’re getting married next year (my partner and I, not me and my cats) so things are pretty hectic at the moment!
I’ve been vegan for just over 11 years and I certainly wouldn’t change a thing. Being veggie from the age of 11, it just seemed a natural progression.
I first starting having issues with gluten 10 years ago. At first, it was just bloating which went as quickly as it came. However, 5 years ago was when I first noticed trouble and I eventually cut out wheat and then gluten.
I have had numerous trips to the doctors, including having a blood test for Coeliac disease. However, as I had cut out gluten, the test came back as ‘satisfactory’.
I cannot go through having to eat gluten days before the blood test, therefore I haven’t been back to the doctors. Other than when I thought I was having an allergic reaction after accidentally eating a crumb and my throat swelling up. The doctor wasn’t interested and just told me to take some anti-hystimenes.
So I am completely gluten free. I can’t eat gluten-free oats so I won’t be including these in any of the recipes which I provide.
I have been nominated for an Allergy Blog award, Amy`s addition to the blog is helping to expand my blog for all you lovely people. I would really appreciate your support please click on the link below and vote for me in the Parent Allergy Blogger and Free From recipes category.
