Thank you so much for joining me on my about page. My name is Liz and like thousands of others I have coeliac disease. Fortunately thanks to the keen eye of my GP this was picked up sharpish when I was diagnosed in 2003.
Luckily for me, I have always loved food and still continue to do so – to be honest my day evolves around what I will eat or drink next. My love of food took me off to catering college, where I qualified as a chef, setting me in good stead for many of my future jobs: Cook in a hospital, nursing home, day nursery and then on to customer support for Juvela gluten free foods.
Lots of good things have happened to me since being diagnosed with coeliac disease. One of the best things, was having the opportunity to work for Juvela. Initially I got involved with them in 2005, helping out at events – and in 2010 it felt like I won a gold ticket when I landed a full-time position within the office. I’ve loved my time there, learnt so, so much, and met and chatted to some lovely people at events and on the advice line (and it was here where I was asked to start writing Juvela’s monthly blog). But, in 2017 I made a tough decision to leave – It wasn’t easy, but I felt that it was time for me to head off and pursue my dream to write my own independent gluten free blog, to help raise more awareness about coeliac disease, share as much of my knowledge as I could about a gluten free diet, with suggestions for plenty of tasty stuff that can still be enjoyed and finally to have the privilege to chuck in a bit of randomness too – since the site is all mine!
So that’s about it – I will stop nattering, there’s an AMAZING gluten free world out there – come on, let’s go and eat!!
