Since it’s Coeliac Awareness Week, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start blogging again - my last blog post was in December!

To be perfectly honest, I’ve not been very well. I’ve blogged about it on a few occasions, and don’t really want to go in great detail in this particular blog post, but I will explain all in another post really soon. To cut the long story very short. I have been diagnosed with Endometriosis. It’s a debilitating disease which affects women and causes me unbearable chronic pain which at times leaves me so exhausted that I don’t have the energy to do anything, let alone blog!

Like I said, I’ll go into more details at a later date. I feel talking about it may help other women who suffer as well as help spread awareness. If you’re reading this and you too have endometriosis, please feel free to contact me. I’m more than happy to offer advice and support!

So back to the blog post….

Gluten Free Wraps!

This week I have been so excited to come across so many places offering us pre packed gluten free wrap sandwiches, that I thought I would review them! Bear in mind that there are plenty more wraps out there - I just haven’t had the chance to find them all! You’ll find most of them in places like Tesco, Sainsburys, Costa, Starbucks, Boots and WH Smiths!

COSTA COFFEE: British Chicken & Basil Salad (4/5)

Costa Coffee: British Chicken and Basil Salad

This was very, very tasty! Usually I’m not a huge fan of rocket but this wasn’t overbearing and I found it really complimented the chicken and the basil mayo! You had a good, decent amount of chicken which wasn’t swamped by the dressing. What’ s more, you can also buy their gluten free brownie to go with it which is amazing!

URBAN EAT BETTER: Lemon Chicken Wrap / Egg and Slow Roast Tomato Wrap (5/5) 


I found these wraps in WH Smiths and Sainsburys! They’re my absolute favourites, especially the Egg and Slow Roast Tomato wrap! The Egg wrap is like a posh ‘egg mayo’ sandwich and tastes amazing with the tomato and rocket. The Chicken wrap is also delicious and comes with a delicious lemon mayo dressing!

On another note, I’m so glad WH Smiths are now selling gluten free wraps in their shops! I couldn’t believe it when I went in to buy my Eat Natural Breakfast Bar to eat on the train journey home that I actually, and rather embarrassingly, squealed with delight! - much to Mikes embarrassment

STARBUCKS: Gluten Free Falafel (5/5)

This was another favourite of mine! I absolutely adore falafel and because of the other ingredients in the wrap, this seemed like the healthiest of the wraps! Unlike the other wraps, this wrap was a fully packed wrap! Plus I would never think to add pomegranate kernels in anything but a fruit salad, but it tasted amazing when you got a burst of pomegranate! It’s inspired me to add it to other things like salads and rice dishes!

But the one thing that all these wraps had in common was that they all used the same seeded wrap which in my opinion stole the show. And what wrap did they use I hear you say? *cue drum roll*




They are simply the greatest things ever! Unlike some gluten free bread, these wraps don’t go soggy if you pre roll them which is perfect if you fancy making some wraps for lunch to take to school, college, uni or work! They aren’t ‘stale’ tasting and taste just like a ‘normal’ wraps! They don’t have to be ‘refreshed’ either and can be eaten straight out of the pack. What’s more, not only are they gluten free they’re also egg free too!

So the countdown begins, only 23 days until Christmas and if you’re anything like me, you’re slightly panicking trying to find time to get all your presents and gifts sorted *slight panic*

But if your newly diagnosed with coeliac disease or embarking on your new life has gluten freer, you not only have to worry about getting your tree up, getting presents, writing your cards and finding the perfect attire for the Christmas party, you also have to worry about surviving the Christmas dinner!

So don’t fear, as I’ve compiled a list of the gluten free products and foods that you need to have a stress free, easy and gluten free dinner!

All products listed are available in all major supermarkets and are easy to find. However, try to get these things pretty soon as I have learnt the hard way - the closer it gets to Christmas the more chance these things won’t be available!

[REVIEW] Warburtons New Gluten Free, Wheat Free and Dairy Free Bread

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I received a large parcel from Warbutons which contained their new loaf of bread and their soft white bread rolls! Being a fan of Warburtons for a long time, I was pleased to have been asked to try their new range and give you my verdict!

Gone are the days when you would have to either ‘refresh’ your gluten free bread in the microwave or toast the bread before eating it as now we’re pretty much spoilt for choice. Little coeliac me can’t believe that I can now eat a sandwich using fresh gluten free bread and choose what type of bread I want; from seeded to brown to bread rolls to wraps - and I have a good feeling the range and choice will get bigger!

As of Monday 29th September Warbutons will be releasing their new bread range, which you will find in Sainsburys and Asda. Their new white, brown and seeded Farmhouse Loaves will replace their existing loaves. Whats more, from the 13th October you’ll also be able to purchase the new products from Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose!

One of the things I noticed about the new loaves was how much larger they are and how ‘normal’ it looked! It wasn’t in that horrible hard plastic case which most gluten free bread is in nor was it plasticy looking - it looked normal and would food anyone into thinking it wasn’t gluten free!

The slices have a lovely dark crust around the edges and the rest of the bread is soft and fluffy - perfect for making sandwiches with! I decided to toast my slices and have it with my morning coffee and they tasted like ‘real’ slices of bread. I even gave some to Mike to try who confessed that he wouldn’t have known it was gluten free if I hadn’t told it was before!

I also tried their new Soft White bread rolls which have replaced their Sub Rolls!. Although I quite liked their gluten free sub rolls, I sometimes found it difficult to slice in half where as with the new bread rolls it’s a doddle and so easy to slice! Plus you get four rolls as opposed to 3 sub rolls like before, and they fit perfectly in lunch boxes, go well with soup etc.

I really like the soft white bread rolls and I can see myself purchasing these on a regular basis, especially as they taste lovely fresh! My only concern (which is a slight, minuscule’ concern) is the rolls are quite ‘floury’ on top. This gives the rolls a lovely freshly baked feeling but I found myself with flour all over my mouth and hands - but as I said, this is such a little annoyance and won’t stop me buying it!

I just love, love, LOVE the new gluten free, wheat free and dairy free range from Warbutons and I know I will become obsessed with their Soft White bread rolls! Don’t forget to keep a look out for the new range in major supermarkets and let me know what you think!
