Thank you so much for joining me on my about page. My name is Liz and like thousands of people I have coeliac disease. Fortunately thanks to the keen eye of my GP this was picked up sharpish, when I was quickly diagnosed in 2003.
I know it isn’t the same for everyone, but I feel extremely blessed that despite having a dietary need, I haven’t lost the joy of eating. I put this down to my massive love of great food (thanks to my family, ensuring that every occasion involved food), and how even talking about it excites me!
With food playing such an important part in my life, it seemed only fitting, that after leaving school I went off to catering college, where I qualified as a Chef!
Many, good things have happened to me since being diagnosed with coeliac disease. One of the best, was getting the chance to work for Juvela gluten free foods. Initially I got involved with the company in 2005, helping out at events. And then, in 2010 I felt like I’d won a gold ticket when I landed a full-time position within the office. I absolutely loved my time at Juvela. I learnt so much, and met and chatted to some lovely people at events and on the advice line. I even got to write their monthly blog……introducing me to the wonderful world of blogging!
In 2017 I took a huge leap of faith and left my job at Juvela, to focus on developing my own independent blog, with the hope to raise more awareness about coeliac disease and share as many recipes and tips I could, to help others live their very best gluten free life!
So that’s about it. I will stop nattering, there’s an EXCITING gluten free world out there! Come on, let’s go and eat!!
