Staying Free From at Festivals – Our Survival Guide

We know, only too well, how tricky it can be to live gluten free. Ensuring you have plenty of delicious free from products at home is doable, but it is a little tougher eating out and if you’re thinking of heading to a festival this summer, you might have a few concerns!

Festivals are the holy grail for pleasure-seekers to unwind and have some fun. However if you, or anyone in your family or festival group, can’t eat gluten, you might be wondering if there will be food available that you can enjoy. There most likely will be, but it’s always better to be prepared.

Follow our festival tips, and you’ll be organised and ready for any situation.

Coeliac Awareness Week 2017 Day 7: Date & Sunflower Seed Granola by Beth Heddle

Today marks the end of Coeliac Awareness Week, an annual celebration of all things gluten free run by the wonderful charity Coeliac UK. This year, we’ve been celebrating with a new blog or recipe every day!

The fantastic foodie & fitness blogger Beth Heddle has created a delicious new recipe using our Gluten & Dairy Free Oats – introducing her Date & Sunflower Seed Granola! Simply scroll down for the recipe – it’s easier than you might think!

date & sunflower seed granola

“I’ll admit, granola is a weakness of mine. I’ll eat it for breakfast, snack on it mid-morning and top greek yogurt and fruit with it for dessert. If there’s no tub of fresh granola in the house it’s probably because I’m ill.

Deliciously Alchemy make two amazing granolas, a nut and seed one and a berry one (if you’ve not tried these you’re missing out!!). This granola takes after the nut and seed one but combines the sweet taste of delicious dates with the nuts to give a crunchy but divine flavour.”

We think it’s the homemade compote that makes these gluten free granola pots extra special. However, if you’re in the mood for an instant dish, simply substitute it for shop-bought… we won’t tell!

You can pick up a bag of our Wonderfully Nutty Granola in Sainsbury’s.

Coeliac Awareness Week 2017 Day 5: Staying Fit on a Gluten Free Diet

Beth Heddle on Staying Fit while Gluten Free

As a coeliac, there aren’t really any reasons why you shouldn’t be able to exercise like anyone else. Coeliacs do however often suffer from a weakened immune system which increases your susceptibility to catching viruses and generally feeing unwell. A few ways I love to keep fit include jogging, walking, spinning classes and cycling outdoors. They’re all relatively cheap and don’t require much expertise – especially as a student these are appealing methods of exercise.

One thing I struggle with being a coeliac is the small range of ‘healthy’ snack bars available for coeliacs. After exercise I often have to drive home or go on somewhere else and therefore having a snack bar would be so convenient. There are a few that I have come across that have a great protein and carbohydrate ratio post-workout but you can so simply make your own! A simple mix of mashed dates, oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and honey baked for 10 minutes or so work perfectly!

Coeliac Awareness Week 2017 Day 4: A Gluten Free Springtime Showstopper

The story so far…

Back in October 2016, Delicious Alchemy’s annual Gluten Free Magic Bake Off competition was drawing to a close. The final was closely fought, with some truly showstopping entries to choose between. After a lot of deliberation, we decided upon Carly Talbot’s Autumn Spice Showstopper as 2016’s winning bake!

Carly won a trip to Sheffield, where she had a gluten free afternoon tea at the beautiful Chatsworth House, and a professional photoshoot of the winning cake. She decided to put a springtime twist on her creation this time around – and we hope you’ll agree that the results came out beautifully! Carly runs the blogs Gluten Free B and Windsor B – you can read her account of the day here. Scroll down for the recipe for this masterpiece if you’d like to create your own!

Coeliac Awareness Week 2017 Day 2: DIY No Cook Rice Milk & Oat Milk

For Day 2 of our Coeliac Awareness Week celebrations, we’re showing you just how easy it is to make delicious dairy free milk alternatives at home, that also don’t contain gluten, nuts, or any other major allergen.

More and more of us are choosing dairy free milks, and they are now easier than ever to find in your local supermarket – but they’re not always cheap. Here’s how you can make your own in minutes for less than 90p a litre.

Rice milk has a deliciously subtle nutty flavour and is perfect on cereal. We love using Delicious Alchemy Rice Flakes in this recipe as there is no previous soaking or cooking necessary – you’re ready to go in seconds. Add a touch of vanilla extract for a sophisticated taste.

Oat milk has a stronger, oaty taste and is also delicious with the addition of vanilla or cinnamon.
