After being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, I wanted to create a site that would allow me to document my exploration into gluten-free cooking and eating, but also provide help to anyone struggling on a gluten-free diet (or their family and friends).

Eventually I would like to develop pdf guides and cookbooks to expand the resources out there for anyone newly diagnosed, or simply looking to expand their gluten free horizons.

I called this blog “The Happy Coeliac”, because Coeliac Disease feels like a sentence at first. All I could think about was “I’ll never have a Domino’s pizza again!” or “I’ll never enjoy a Twix”. However, I forced myself to be a happy coeliac but re-examining my beliefs about food and happiness. Now, I am glad that I can no longer ingest 3,000 calories worth of pizza in a single night, or idly consume anything I wanted (although I do like to snack!). Not only that, but my health has improved!

Please feel free to get in touch about anything you like. Please note I do not provide medical advice – please see your GP or dietician.

Occasionally companies send me samples of products, but I will always review these honestly, promise!

Hope you enjoy the site!
