For the last few weeks I have been doing a gluten free challenge for a BBC 2 programme with Prof Alice Roberts. I have been following a gluten free diet to see how practical it is to do this & to see if it made any difference to my general wellbeing. I enjoyed the challenge , but reading detailed food labels was a shocker, so much added or hidden sugar, whey, milk & gluten. The programme in April will explain more .. here are some of my gluten free culinary adventures. I met a lovely group of people in the filming ! @nibblypig the Sheffield food blogger , lots of foodies & food start ups, and teachers, nurses & wellbeing workers keen to find out more about how changes in diet can improve your daily life.
We all met up again for the second filming session in La Revolution de Cuba in Sheffield , and to share our gluten free experiences. These will be revealed on BBC2 sometime in April 2016.
I am glad it has finished & I can return to my usual diet, but I have realised how easy it is to get gluten free food like stock cubes, bread and cakes. Cooking from scratch helps you be gluten free & I will be taking more care to avoid processed foods in future !
