Food intolerance new years resolution

Posted on Thu Jan 2010 by Miranda

A friend contacted me today, via the wonders of Facebook looking for some help with sticking to her New Years resolution to stick to her food intolerances. Suffering from constant stomach ache when eating foods not recommended to her she is struggling, as cooking for small children and a partner means there is not always time to look after her. So she was in need of some inspiration – never fear Fussy Foodie is here…

“Just been having a lookie at your website – you’ve done really well with it. Wish I could be strict, I’m hopeless and constantly end up with a stomach ache! I need some onion, garlic, peppers, celery free diets too and to keep off wheat, yeast and dairy please.”

Do you have cravings for other stuff or is it the practicality of making things?

“Bread is just so EASY. AND, I can’t be bothered to cook a meal for the girls,something else for my partner and something wheat free for me. Im lazy!”

OK well these gluten free flat breads are the latest Fussy Foodie creation – which could help you out.

With a few possibly new ingredients, they are reallyare easy to make (if your kids like cooking you could get them to help too), taste great and if you make a load you can freeze them.

They are fantastic to pop in the toaster for lunch as a bread alternative. It  takes a bit of technique to get the thickness, size and shape right shape but if bread is a weakness they could be great.

I know it must be really hard cooking for the family and I only have two of us to worry about. Where possible I would try to cook the base of the meal the same and then add the extras for others that you don’t want to have.

If you let me know some typical meals that you cook I will see how else I can help.

“I must try and be strict, it was my New Years resolution – but its gone out the window and it’s only the 7th! I struggle with Breakfast and Lunch. I’ll have  soya sometimes on cereal but I’m not that keen on the taste. I was having eggs, bacon etc.. for break but it’s such a rush before taking girls to school etc.. i skip breakfast – ummm!”


If you don’t like soya milk try oatly milk or rice milk as they have different taste and texture too.

I try to vary what milk I have to make breakfast more interesting. Also in my opinion Alpro Light is the best soya milk by a mile and it’s fortified which you need when not having dairy.

For breakfast I normal have a mixture – seeds, oats and either rice puffed rice cereal or gluten free cornflakes– I don’t get full with rice puffs on there own. A bowl of gluten free cornflakes with a tbsp of oats and a sprinkle of seeds topped with milk of your choice is a good place to start – Jordans Porridge Oats are my favourite – hot or cold.

Nb. You can buy the cearls cereals in most supermarkets.

Good luck to everyone who is coping with Food Intolerances and if you need some inspiration get in touch!
