Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Living

I want to help people with any of these dietary restrictions to enjoy eating as well as enjoy life.

msderpypants I wish this Gluten Free Veggie Good Houmous wrap was available in US Starbucks as well. I rarely see a food option for me at Starbucks in the US.

In the UK, Starbucks has a Gluten Free Wrap that is also dairy free. Brilliant! In addition it is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans. This is what I get at the train station before I go on a day trip. One of my favorite grab and go foods in the UK thus far.
As for drinks, just like in the US, “soya” aka soy milk is an option.

Gluten Free Pizza from Dominos. The Gluten Free Crust here in the UK is better than the Gluten Free crust you get in the US.

Costa is a popular coffee place in Yorkshire. My colleagues personally like it the best. You can get a wide variety of drinks and there is a dairy free option of soya. Don’t ask me why but that is how soy is spelled in the UK. And they take-away not take-out and they go on holiday and not vacation.

Going further with Costa, the store also has food for me to eat. Hooray! They have a gluten free wrap available. I found it good but the seeds were a little harsh at times. A great option for the grab and go but not my number one choice.

Welcome to the UK Edition of my blog!

Over the past few weeks I have been in England on business. In addition, I have also travelled to Scotland. Believe it or not, there are many gluten free and dairy free options available.

Thanks for the follow. I recently discovered that I was intolerant to both wheat and dairy so blogs like yours are a godsend x

Food and Drink in Croatia

Traveling to Split, Croatia was another phenomenal experience I had. The water is just so gorgeous. The Adriatic Sea is what of the most beautiful pieces of nature I have ever seen. The pebble beaches are also extremely beautiful as well. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you can check out Diocletian’s Palace, where some of the show was filmed. Such amazing and exquisite architecture all throughout the city. If you plan to go to Dubrovnik or Hvar or Brac or anywhere in Croatia, absolutely recommend that you stop in Split.  

In terms of food, you can get seafood in Croatia but my favorite dish was cevapi, which is a type of minced meat. It basically is the same thing as mici from Romania. So so so good. Being dairy free is not too difficult at all. Lots of seafood and meat for you to eat. Gluten free is not to bad either. The only issue is that often cevapi is served in a sandwich so watch out for that.

For drinks there are wines and lots of delicious liquors and liqueurs to taste.

Going to Romania was such an incredible and exotic experience. Romania is full of beautiful castles such as Pele’s Castle and Bran (Dracula’s) Castle. It also had a scenic mountainous region like you have never seen before as well as dazzling Eastern European Architecture.  

When it comes to food and drink, let’s say, being a vegetarian, will be difficult. Meat is a large staple to the foods I ate there. Of course, you can work around it, but it is not the easiest. Dairy-Free was not very hard, but being completely Gluten-Free is hard. If you are only Gluten Intolerant, my suggestion would be to budget yourself to have a little bit. Having the small amount I had there did not cause any bad reactions. The wheat is better quality and less genetically modified and has less preservatives. If you have celiac disease or a wheat allergy, you will be okay; you just have to be aware that bread is very prevalent there. And for the drinks, I had wine and it was good. I don’t remember having any other type of wine except for white.

In the photos you will see a Pork Shank, Mici (Minced meat or meatball consisting of Ground Pork, Ground Lamb, and Ground Beef or Veal), and a Romanian Water Bottle.

My sister made these cupcakes fore before my trip to Romania and Croatia last month. So delicious!
