Gluten Free Food

My friends recently found out he can no longer have gluten.
By chance my brother gave me a pre prepared meal to try, as a rule i do not eat often eat processed food, so was very dubious, but gave it a try, and was blown away by the quality of the food/ingredients and taste.
It was from http://www.ilumiworld.com.
All their meals are prepared from sratch in their kitchens and are gluten, nut and milk free.
All the meat  beef, pork and lamb are British, as is their free-range chicken.
I have ordered their weekly box, and will be ordering another tomorrow,  their gluten free organic beer , hits the spot Smiley
You also get free next day delivery..
On trustpilot their are 9.3 out of 10, based on 1464 review

Definitely worth a try
Kind Regards

Re: Gluten Free Food

I have a friend who is gluten-intolorent (is that a correct term?).
He adapted to the change in diet reasonably quickly and copes with it well.
However a few years back we met for a meal at a restaurant near where he lives. Not wanting to make him feel different we were going to opt for whatever he wanted but he insisted that was not necessary. I really fancied bangers and mash. My friend decided he would risk it as he had missed such delicacies for the previous few years. I got an email from him a few days later saying that he was rushed to hospital later the night of the meal as he had a bad reaction to the sausages and it was touch and go for a while.
He will no longer take any risks!

Re: Gluten Free Food

Thanks for the link Mike.  Smiley
My daughter is gluten intolerant (celiac), and we always go to a Wetherspoons if eating out. They cater for every kind of allergy etc, and provide a very comprehensive chart of their dishes showing all the possibly hazardous ingredients - just ask at the counter.

Re: Gluten Free Food

My missus decided we should try to go gluten-free last year, which wouldn't have been so bad except that she also decided we couldn't use any of the common substitutes for flour and the like that you can get in any supermarket.  I drew the line at excluding dairy - which apparently is closely related.
We have a friend with a celiac daughter and it's generally no problem at all cooking for her, but take away all the substitutes and it becomes a bit of a mare.  Well, breakfast in particular: what's the point of it without toast, for crying out loud?
Fortunately, neither of us noticed any sign of the amazing health benefits her anti-gluten internet zealots promised so she's pretty much given up on the idea now .. except that we still don't eat pasta.
