The world is determined to make us all fat blobs. Even us fussy eaters are now besieged with calorific baubles to turn us from malnourished waifs to those people who can only leave their house via pallet truck.
I was about to start a rant about the unhealthy free from foods on offer. There is a definite niche for healthy free from foods, listen up supermarkets. We like pre-packed salads like everyone else!
That's what so ironic about people seeing this as a quick fix weight loss thing. Well yeah, if you can lose weight by eating pizza, cake and biscuits, laden with butter, sugar and eggs in the place of flour.
Oops still ranting.
So, I think I've figured it out. All this stuff is aimed at kids with celiac disease. Convenience foods for mums. Right?
I'm getting to my point, honest.
A fish and chip shop, just 5 minutes drive from my house sells a range of gluten free food!
Dammit, more unhealthy food, and my waistline is definitely suffering but I just can't help getting excited by things like this (despite myself).
Battered fish, sausage, fish fingers, scampi, pies, pastie and curry sauce - all GF!
They use the GF batter across the board and they even use GF vinegar as standard.
I tried the cod and chips and curry sauce. Very good and thoroughly enjoyed by my husband too.
