To Intolerance and Beyond

New Year, New You? I'm certainly trying to bear this thought in mind whilst I delve into 2013. I've been attempting to avoid my intolerant food types for around 4 months now, so I feel it's time to start reintroducing foods. So far I have been sampling white bread and some types of cheese, to good effect. This allowed me to create a lovely lunch for a recent visit from my mother:

We had a green salad with tomato and smoked cheese and a dressing of lemon juice, sunflower oil and a dash of salt. The main portion of the meal was haddock with a mustard and white wine sauce added to white rice. We also had crusty white rolls drizzled in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mmmmmmmm, if I do say so myself. There's something so satisfying about making a hearty meal to be shared with a friend or loved one.

We acquired a shiny new gadget for our kitchen this Christmas, a juicer. It's been put to good use and has produced some really yummy results, such as this apple and carrot juice. We have also added pineapple for a sweeter version.

I've decided to end my Wheat Free, Dairy Free: A Diet Less Ordinary blog with this post, as I move into the new year and new food discoveries. I'm very glad to have undertaken this writing task whilst going through this process as it has allowed me to track and discuss my recipe/gardening and ingredient ideas. On a positive note, I'm 3kg lighter than I was starting this process and I feel much more balanced, so long may that continue. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish you all the best with your own intolerance's and food discoveries.
