Life with food intolerances...
Can be difficult and can make simple day to day decisions a little more complicated. Understanding what you can eat, searching labels for dreaded hidden ingredients, maybe learning how to bake from scratch, just so you can still have a special treat once in while, and eating out?!? What a nightmare!!
We have many friends who have food intolerances, we know how many culinary trips out can start off with hopeful expectations but often lead to frustration, disappointment and more often than not, a slightly rumbly stomach.
Friends find it difficult to accommodate, or worse try to pretend that cheese isn’t a dairy product!! It can be hard to see eyes rolled in your direction as you ask for a decaff soya latte or a gluten-free alternative. Searching for something vegetarian that doesn't solely consist of cheese and pickle can seem like a fruitless challenge, and after it all you can become known as the 'dreaded vegan'.
But fear not my intolerant buddies...
