Gluten Free Snacks – Lifebox

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah.

I wanted to find some snacks that were gluten free and healthy, something that I might not have tried before or that is not readily available in supermarkets.

I decided to trial a subscription to Lifebox. Lifebox is a monthly subscription box that comes packed with snacks, drinks and treats to try. I love the idea of subscription boxes as it gives you the chance to discover new things. I ordered a one-off Travel Lifebox and also the 3-month trial of the Women’s Health Lifebox.

Days Out

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah.

Becoming gluten free requires some thought whenever there is a plan to do something, especially if the plan involves eating out. I like to know that wherever I may be going, there will be somewhere that accommodates gluten free eaters well, and there will be something I want to eat (basically something on the menu other than salad!).

Since I was a child I have been going to football matches most weekends to support Leicester City. As I got older, this included going to away matches. My dad, grandad, sister and I would travel across the country to the match, and either stop somewhere on the way to eat, or eat at our destination. Since becoming gluten free, this has started getting trickier.

Gluten Free Breakfast Pancakes

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah!

I really enjoy mornings, I love waking up, feeling really productive and look forward to the day ahead. Mornings are much better when you have a good breakfast to get started with. During the week, I have cereal as it is quick and very filling, however I like to be a bit more creative at weekends and so I have got my favourite pancake recipe to share with you.

My Top 5 Schar

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah!

One of the things I noticed when I first walked down the gluten free aisle was the bright yellow packaging of Schar. It really stands out on the shelf, and for good reasons too. Schar provide a massive variety of gluten free products, from breads and biscuits, to crackers and, most recently, waffles! Schar is a very popular brand that provides gluten free products at a very high quality, so it’s no wonder the gluten free aisles are dominated by their yellow packaging.

I haven’t yet tried a Schar product that I don’t like, having said that, I definitely have my favourites! So, here are my top 5 Schar products.

Gluten Free at Uni

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah.

Some of you may already know that I am a student at the University of Bristol and I have just started the second year of my Maths degree.

If you’ve read my Becoming Gluten Free post, then you’ll know that I have only recently become gluten intolerant. The diagnosis started back in May, and I had my endoscopy test in July, so this is my first time being gluten free whilst at uni.

Over summer I’ve been quite worried about how I’ll get on with it when I started back at uni. Here are my thoughts and discoveries about being a gluten free student.

Coeliac Disease vs Gluten Intolerance

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah!

If, like me, you’re relatively new to the world of being gluten free then it can be a little bit confusing. Suddenly lots of technical words are flying around and you’re not quite sure what they mean. For me, one of the biggest questions was what is the difference between having Coeliac Disease and being gluten intolerant, or sensitive to gluten.

A Day At The Seaside

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Gluten Free Hannah!

Last weekend I had a lovely day out at the seaside with my family. The main reason for the trip was to take my dog to the beach – he’s nearly three years old now and has barely left Leicestershire! So, last Saturday we packed up a few things and headed off to north Norfolk.
