Hi, I’m Jessica Galsworthy – welcome to my blog! I’m a 27 year old, self confessed foodie. Half the week, I live in the Essex countryside with two beautiful puppies and the other half, I live with my boyfriend in Chelsea. That’s a slight contrast, I know!
So, where did this blog start?
The date was Sept 5th 2017, my birthday. The date on which I was told my favourite pastime was about to become my biggest challenge… eating.
The doctors had diagnosed with coeliac disease, which requires a strict gluten free diet. In addition, I learned that I was intolerant to dairy, potato, yeast, sesame, corn and oats…nightmare! Even things I’d never heard of, like “Amaranth” (?!). I thought this was going to be a near on impossible to deal with, ontop of a full time London job and ME/CFS.
Several days and multiple failed attempts at eating out later, I decided enough was enough. I had to turn this into a challenge and I had to win!
Step 1: Instagram. Find inspiration and get excited about food again.
Step 2: this website. Hopefully a place to share really easy, tried and tested recipes, along with tips and tricks for managing a gluten/dairy free diet. I want to make it easier for everyone else too!
I LOVE putting it together… hope you like reading it too!
