Hi, welcome to my Australian Gluten Free Cooking Blog. Here I want share with you my partner Piets’ love of cooking combined with my gluten free lifestyle.
Approximately 6 years I was diagnosed with being gluten intolerant. At first I found it hard with the amount of food I was no longer able to consume that contained wheat/gluten in some form. I think I lost 10 kilo grams in the first year of being gluten intolerant but it was also the beginning of a much healthier lifestyle. I went from being anaemic 6 months of the year and not being allowed to donate blood to being able to donate blood!
A couple of years ago a very wonderful person came into my life. One of Piet’s many great qualities was that he was a great cook! He was able to adapt his cooking skills into gluten free cooking quite easily.
About 6 months ago Piet and I had an amazing experience travelling and driving through Europe for 6 weeks, countries such as Germany, Italy (Tuscany), Paris & London. In the 6 weeks of consuming more foods containing gluten than I would normally I didn’t have any issues/pains/problems. The country I thought I would have the most difficulty in finding gluten free food as they are known for pizza and pasta – yes Italy, was the easiest country to find gluten free groceries in the supermarket.
