nairns oatcakes | gluten free reviews

nairns gluten free oatcakes

i’ve been a real convert to oatcakes over these past few gluten free years. gluten free bread still isn’t that good, and the only ones (that i’ve tried) that i will happily eat on a semi regular basis are genius and marks & spencers own. they’re almost comparable to ‘normal’ bread! i still need to try and make my own…

but in the meantime, as a bit of a crunch lover, oatcakes have been a welcome fixture for snacking and small meals. i typically go for the plain nairns oatcakes (pictured above) but was sent some of their super seeded ones to try too. the only reason i don’t have a picture of them instead is because they went so quickly, whoops! but a good sign, right?

celia gluten free beer

an accidental hiatus – but my gluten free reviews posts are back!

just to remind you ..i’m not a writer, and i’m certainly not a food writer. this is likely blatently obvious but i feel the need to point it out from time to time.

anyway. a gluten free beer! specifically, a organic czech lager called celia. i was a little dubious about trying this as i’m not a huge lager fan, but i do try to remain open minded and try things at least once.

crisps are my weakness. not just because of the savoury flavours, but the crunch too. love a good crunch.

as part of my gluten-free reviews here on the blog, wellaby’s sent me some of their simple bakes to try. they’re a wholegrain snack that’s kind of a mix of crisps and small thin crackers. they come in three flavours: smoky bbq, salt & pepper and spicy chilli. all three are full of flavour and you certainly get a good amount in each packet.

simple bakes are all gluten free, nut free, vegan and free of artificial colours and flavours as well as preservatives. if you’re interested they’re also less than 100 calories per serving and have no trans fats.

if you read my post a while ago about my diagnosis and experience of coeliac disease, you might remember that i wanted to feature some gluten-free brands (and ones that aren’t specifically gluten free but have products safe for coeliacs). well, the time has finally come!

to be upfront, these, for the time being, are going to be pretty simple reviews. i would love to perhaps do some recipes or something a bit more involving but for now i kind of just wanted to get started with something i knew i could do. to tie it into the feel of my blog, i do place a slight preference on products with well designed or interesting packaging – but if i’ve heard something is good and just want to try regardless ..obviously that will take precedence!
