This month we hear from Hazel Robotham about how she enjoys her gluten free way of life.
WHEN WERE YOU DIAGNOSED WITH COELIAC?
12 years ago, although I have had a food/chemical intolerance problem for much longer.
WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING GLUTEN FREE?
People are starting to realise that gluten-free foods are in greater demand. I am so pleased that manufacturers such as Barkat are rising to the challenge with TASTEFUL Products!
WHAT’S YOUR DREAM GLUTEN FREE PRODUCT?
I already have my dream product. It is my homemade Blueberry muffins which I make using Barkat flour, for breakfast with home-made Ginger and Rhubarb jam. I also love feta cheese and two small slices of locally farmed – organic – Pork Tenderloin.
WHAT WOULD YOUR ADVICE BE TO NEWLY DIAGNOSED COELIACS?
Accept it; get on with it – but use common sense and research recipes and restaurants so that you can fully enjoy a gluten free diet.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BARKAT PROUCT?
Barkat Flour- I use it to make all my favourite treats.
