Travelling with Coeliac Disease can be difficult, especially when you add a language barrier into the mix. Holiday’s are a time for relaxing, exploring and trying new experiences. However, having an allergy, food intolerance or auto-immune disease like Coeliac can make it a nightmare.
This week is the official Coeliac Awareness Week, meaning brands, bloggers and coeliac folk will be raising their voices to spread awareness of the autoimmune disease. I was diagnosed 3 & a half years ago, and I can tell you coeliac disease is manageable and you can still eat exciting, tasty and yummy food!
Snacks are just one of those things that anyone with Coeliac Disease or food intolerances will need to get used to. Snacks are your new best friend, they travel everywhere with you and will lift your spirits if there’s no gluten free food available. I will admit, the majority of chain coffee shops now sell gluten free snacks (hooray) but it never hurts to be overly prepared!
Last week me and my family travelled to North Devon to spend a week camping by the picturesque coastline of Ilfracombe. Aside from the horrendous 8 hour car journey on the way down and the torrential rain for our first full day (we spent it playing games, eating/drinking and generally getting on each others nerves) it was a lovely, peaceful week with great weather.
I’ve been posting healthy, gluten free recipes on my blog/social media channels for around 2 months now but I haven’t really explained how Oat So Delicious came about. I obviously have a love of breakfast food and baking healthy recipes and oats are a massive part of my diet, I don’t think I could live without porridge most days!
