Is food allergy month and it's amazing to see big names addressing this issue and making changes.
Booths in Garstang have expanded their FreeFrom aisle. Which is amazing. Now we don't just have 1/4 of an aisle and 2 shelves we have a whole one side of an aisle with 3 shelves.
Not all the products cater for all allergens so PLEASE check all the labels.
But we have big names like Lazy Days, Goodies Goodstuff, Be Free, Moo Chocolate, Booja Booja, Nak'd, Natures Path, Free and Easy and many more.
With chocolate products, breads, cereals, oats, crisps, sweets, tray bakes, nut bars, sauces and gravy mixes and more.
So please go and check it out. See if there is a new product to try. Try them and let me know know!
Note; a product from one company may be wheat, gluten & dairy free etc but another under their name may not be the same and may only be wheat free so PLEASE always check the labels and shop savvy. You have to be on the ball.
Thank you Booths for expanding your range and being more open to catering for people who suffer with allergens and intolerances.
It really does help us. Not only in the sense of shopping but also allowing us to enjoy our food more and be able to eat foods we miss & allow us to enjoy family events, celebrations and gatherings along with everyone else.
My fave products from the Free From aisle at Booths:
-Goodies Goodstuff Sour Sweets
-Booja Booja truffles
-Be Free wraps
-Lazy Days Ginger Tiffins
Let me know if you try any of these products and enjoy them.
On my New Year's party I served Lazy Days ginger tiffin and Goodies Goodstuff sweets and they went down a storm. So don't hesitate to take the plunge and just give them a go! Even if you don't suffer with any allergens these products are super yummy.
Get those cupboards stocked up ready for the weekend.
Love and peace
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
