Gluten Myths Busted!

There is a common misconception that gluten intolerance and coeliac disease is the same thing. However, we are here to bust this myth!


Please explain…


Having a gluten intolerance (or a non-coeliac gluten sensitivity as it sometimes called) causes a stress response in the body and will result in discomfort from eating gluten- however it is not a disease.  Because it is not a disease, people who suffer from intolerance to gluten may not get officially diagnosed.

Coeliac disease on the other hand is an inherited autoimmune disorder that will stay with you throughout your life. This makes for a lengthy process to be diagnosed.

When a person with coeliac disease eats gluten, the gluten causes an abnormal immune response, which damages the lining of the small intestines walls. This can reduces the small intestines ability to absorb nutrients and can often result in malnutrition.  If a person with this disease continues to go undiagnosed, they may become very ill.

Both sufferers from gluten intolerance and coeliac disease will feel significantly better once they cut gluten out of their diet.

The basics…

This may seem obvious to some, but many people don’t know where gluten comes from… gluten is found in wheat, barley, rye and any foods that contain those grains!

Some of the main foods that must be avoided if you suffer from coeliac disease or gluten intolerance include:

Bread, cakes, pasta, noodles, biscuits, crackers, cereals, beer and many more!


Top picks

There are many bad gluten free products out there but luckily for you, all our products are good!

Wait, they are better than good – in fact, you won’t even notice the difference!

Our top picks from our gluten free range:

Zehnder Bread, Kez’s Free Biscuits, Luke’s Organic & Organ crackers!


While we are talking gluten free, we need to introduce you to the amazing Martine from ‘Chomp Chomp’. Martine has made not let her intolerance get in the way of her pasion for food, and is a local Perth, gluten free blogger. She has some amazing photos to check out and heaps of places you can safely go out for dinner, so have a look here! 


To sum up

Surprising fact: many gluten free products often contain more sugar and fats to hide the “gluten free” taste, so you may need to bear this in mind if your counting calories!

Another fun fact: many people will feel better for reducing the amount of gluten in their diet, so if you are feeling like gluten might be causing you problems then try it out.



We loved this post from Buzzfeed about  people who are actually gluten free are tired are hearing…

I can’t live without bread

Can’t you just cheat?

Do you miss pasta? Do you miss pizza? Do you miss cake?

Our favourite… Are you just doing it because it’s trendy?


Make your mum breakfast in bed the healthy way!

How do you show your mum you love her on Mother’s Day? For us, I’m sure you guessed, we show her through food! Every special occasion (and lets face it, most not so special occasions) mum slaves away in the kitchen, creating the most monumental feasts, making sure to include everybody’s favourite dish. It’s only fair that on Mother’s Day, you make something from the heart for her and what mum doesn’t like a surprise breakfast in bed!

Why not make your mum her very own not-so-average breakfast in bed with some amazing buckwheat pancakes! Buckwheat is an amazing super food, with about a million reasons why you should eat it. Try this scrumptious recipe for Gluten Free Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes from Gluten-Free-Vegan-Girl:


  • 2 cups almond milk (or other dairy-free milk)
  • 1 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • juice from 1/2 lemon, optional but recommended

Blueberry sauce:

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries (preferably organic)
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/3 cup water (more if needed)


1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Place the dates, almond milk, lemon juice and vanilla essence in a high-speed blender/food processor and blend until you have a smooth paste. Stir this mixture in with the dry ingredients until you have a relatively thick batter.

2. Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat before pouring in about 1/4 cup batter per pancake. When the pancakes has started to firm up on the upward-facing side, flip around and cook on the other side until they are a deep
golden color. It is very important that you do not have a too high heat, as this will result in burnt and/or uncooked pancakes. Place the pancakes on a plate and place a towel on top to retain the heat. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.

3. While that is cooking we are going to make the blueberry sauce. Simply add all of the ingredients listed into a medium-sized pot and bring to a simmer. When the blueberries are no longer frozen (and the dates are soft enough to be blended) grab a hand-blender or transfer sauce to a regular blender, and pulse until properly combined. Pour this into a jar and set aside.

Now simply drizzle the sauce on to the pancakes, garnish with a handful of additional blueberries and enjoy!
