Gluten-Free: Medical Necessity or Fad Diet?!

I haven’t opened up on my blog about my coeliac disease before, so here goes…

I am writing this because I want to educate and help spread awareness… it is extremely personal so please be kind.

So to start, if you aren’t aware, coeliac disease is a disease where the small intestine is basically hypersensitive to gluten.

An increasing number of adults are now choosing to go gluten free, even though they are not intolerant to gluten or coeliac, and it is fast becoming the new cool fad diet to be on. As someone who is intolerant to gluten, referred to as a coeliac, I cannot begin to explain how frustrating it is that people are choosing to go gluten free for no medical reason whatsoever.

New Year, New Blog!

Hello and welcome back, it’s been a while! I feel super guilty for that, and I have missed blogging. I just had a lot going on in the past month and I know you all understand that sometimes you have to take time for yourself. I would have just been writing about things I am not bothered about, or passionate about, and for me that is just not what blogging is about.

Dear Anxiety

I am sat here on my bed after a day of feeling absolutely crap, and I finally feel the need to vent all my feelings – to write them down and try to release some of the pressure currently weighing me down. 2016 has by far been my worst year in terms of my mental health. I know I have suffered with depression for at least 4 years but for the last year, anxiety has taken a massive toll on my life and it has been getting increasingly worse. I hit an all time low back in March 16 where I FINALLY went to the doctors for help. I was put on citalopram and I began to see a difference after a couple of months. However, my mental health reared its ugly head again and the last few months have been the hardest yet. I am now on double the dosage of my anti-depressants and I want nothing more than for things to get better.

My Perfect Everyday Eyeshadow Quad

I love my eyeshadow palettes, and I have way more than I care to admit. But there is something about a palette with loads of shadows in which is too much for when I am in a massive rush (most mornings). And lets be honest, you never really like or use every shade.

HEALTHY Chocolate Cake Recipe

As many of you may know I am trying my hardest to be healthier with my food choices, which is going really well. I recently found a recipe for this chocolate cake from Madeline Shaw’s ‘Get The Glow’ book and I thought I would recreate it. It is flour and gluten free, but you can’t tell – It is gooey and rich and tastes just like brownies! It turned out so well I thought I would share it with you all.

Hello again internet lovelies, I’m back today with a food inspired post. I have recently gone on a healthy eating lifestyle change in a bid to feel better in myself and to lose some weight! So when I was in London the other day I popped into Planet Organic, the one on Tottenham Court Road in London, and grabbed some different healthier snacks to give a try! Basically because I am always hungry and I need snacks to stop me from grabbing unhealthy options. This post is not sponsored, I just am very passionate about eating healthier right now and I hope this can give you some ideas too!
