Gluten and Dairy Free Sweet Potato Fries with Tzatziki

Hello

I love love love sweet potato fries.  The trick to getting them lovely and crisp on the outside and creamy in the middle is to make sure you leave plenty of space between each chip when baking them in the oven.

This recipe is a different twist on chips and dip.  I’ve made a fresh tomato and cucumber salad accompanied by a creamy tzatziki dip made with coconut yoghurt.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Banana Split

Hello

This dessert is the stuff of dreams for me but a nightmare for my sister.  When I was about 6 years old (prior to being diagnosed with a dairy allergy) we went away from the weekend in the caravan.

I ate a giant banana split which was amazing at the time but not great later on.  Let’s just say it didn’t stay in my stomach overnight.  Unfortunately for my sister I was in the top bunk and she was in the bottom one.  She has never been able to look at a banana split again.  In the photo, I’m the smaller one in the snazzy red trousers.

Hopefully that disgusting story hasn’t put you off and you can enjoy your gluten and dairy free banana split.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Mushroom Soup

Hello

The first recipe I’m sharing this week is for a simple gluten and dairy free mushroom soup.  I have nearly a thousand recipes on my website but sometimes I realise I don’t have a recipe for something as basic as mushroom soup.

Rather than make a traditional cream of mushroom soup I’ve gone with a more filling soup to stop me getting hungry after lunch.  I’ll add cream of mushroom soup onto my recipe to do list.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Spring Onion Noodle Meal Prep Box

Hello

This is the final recipe from my week of gluten and dairy free meal prep recipes.  I’ve gone for a vegetarian spring onion and peanut noodle salad with a little green salad and a raspberry and watermelon fruit salad.

I prepped this on the Sunday night and ate it for lunch on Tuesday and Thursday – it stayed perfectly fresh.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Pie Overnight Oats Meal Prep

Hello

This is the final breakfast recipe in my meal prep series, I’ll share the last lunch recipe tomorrow.  I love my overnight oats as they are so easy to prepare and make a lovely filling breakfast.

This one is based on the apple and cinnamon flavour of a traditional apple pie.  You can either eat it straight from the fridge or pop it into the microwave for a couple of minutes.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Breakfast Box

Hello

This breakfast box is based on one of the options that I saw in Starbucks but isn’t gluten free.  I thought it was a nice selection of nibbles for breakfast so I’ve put together my own version.

When I make this for my breakfast I like to eat half at home and then finish it at work.  I made two of these boxes on Sunday night and ate one on Monday and one on Wednesday.  Click here for the recipe: Gluten and Dairy Free Meal Prep Breakfast Box

When I was in London last week I visited a gluten free bakery called Beyond Bread.  It is a short walk from Oxford Street and is a lovely place to have a quiet lunch in.

My friend and I went for lunch after a morning of shopping – we enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches and honey parsnip soup.  Well worth checking out if you are in the area.

Enjoy!

A Guide to Gluten and Dairy Free Meal Prep

Hello everyone

This week I’m going to do something a little different.  Recently I’ve started to prepare my meals for the Monday to Thursday on a Sunday night.

People have talked about meal prep a lot on the internet.  I always imagined it as eating the same food for days in a row.  I also wasn’t sure how fresh the food would taste come Thursday.

I’ve put together a number of recipes that are easy to make, give a variety during the week, stay fresh and most importantly are all gluten and dairy free.

If you don’t fancy preparing your meals in advance hopefully these recipes will give you some new ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 The Meals

Over the next week I’ll share two different recipes for breakfast, two lunch recipes and one dinner recipe.  All the recipes can be prepared in advance and enjoyed over the week.
