myoutletforfitness asked:

I'm trying to go gluten free this year and I'm having issues trying to figure out what is and isn't other than the labels saying "GLUTEN FREE!!" I know that not being gluten intolerant i shouldn't be stressing to only eat gluten free but have seen benefits with the way of eating and want to stick to it. Could you refer any articles that state loosely what is and isn't or a blog?

A good thing to know first, is that to be diagnosed as Coeliac or gluten intolerant you have to be eating gluten at the time of testing. If you don’t think you have either or don’t need a diagnosis, then going gluten free straight away is fine.

The best resources I have found are the Coeliac Societies (usually charities) in your country, as they have detailed and correct information. I’m not sure where you are but the UK one is https://www.coeliac.org.uk/gluten-free-diet-and-lifestyle/ and has a lot of info.

In the UK the law in the past was that they had to list gluten in the allergy advice on the back of a product under the ingredients if it contained gluten, but it recently changed so they just have any ingredients that may be allergens in bold so you have to look through the whole list. The main ingredients to avoid are barley, wheat, gluten, rye, oats (unless they state gluten free).

I hope it goes well!

Meat Free March

Today is the first day of my Meat Free March! I have been wanting to go veggie for a while, but never seem to quite make it :/ This month I am going to try it fully, try thinking of gluten free veggie foods, try eating at restaurants being gluten free and veggie!! It will be interesting and hopefully I stick to it. I’ll try to post pics of what I eat.

 Fruity Turtle Cake! 
Who needs refined sugar, when you can re-create something amazing from natural fruit sugars?! Ingredients involved are listed below!  
Peeled and thinly sliced kiwis (as many as it takes to cover shell)Bananas, thinly sliced lengthwiseCoconut flesh (1/2 cup)Coconut water (1/4 cup)Dates, pitted (1/2 cup)1. Put coconut flesh, coconut water, and dates into a blender, and blend on high until you get an “icing” like consistency. (Not too liquidy. If it is too thin, add more dates.)2. Start with layered bananas on the bottom, followed by some coconut date “icing”, followed by thinly sliced kiwi rounds, and then some more “icing”, and then more banana slices. Continue this pattern, moving slowly into the center, until you get a 1/2 circle shape on your plate.3. Next, layer the 1/2 circle with thinly sliced kiwi rounds to make the green color of the turtle shell.4. Make the head, feet, and tail, simply by carving out individual kiwis to get the shapes as pictured in the picture below.*Excellent for kids’ birthday parties!*
