Top 5 Gluten and dairy free products I Love

Since I was a teenager, I suffered terribly with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for years I tried every product available on the market to ease my symptoms with very little joy, I was taking medication daily and was still feeling sluggish, in pain and unable to control my emotions. My doctor would recommend eating a high fibre diet, but this just made me worse. I couldn't understand why oh why I was doing as my doctor had recommended, but still I was suffering.

Then I decided enough was enough, it was time for me to take charge of my diet without relying on medication to control my condition.

Coconut Milk Alpro Fresh Coconut Milk Alternative 1 Litre
I have converted so many of my friends and family to this product and here is why- its an excellent replacement and taste divine in porridge, tea. or you can use it when cooking dishes such as coconut rice or curries Its so versatile which makes it one of favourite's.

Gluten free porridge

There are some many different brands and it depends on the taste and texture you prefer but add your favourite fruit, honey or preferred milk and this a definite winner .

Lacto free Milk Arla Lactofree Fresh Milk Semi Skimmed
I actual us this for my daughter, I find it's great with cereals unlike the coconut milk which I personally wouldn't recommend with cereal  and as my daughter was complain if stomach ache after drinking pasteurised cows milk after switching to this I never had a problem.

Gluten Free pastaASDA Free From Fusilli
This has been one of the hardest product to find a good quality pasta that doesn't turn the water all white and slimy. My personal favourite is Asda' or Tesco's own brands they taste similar to normal pasta and I often prepare this for family and friends with no complaints.

Dairy Free yoghurt Koko Strawberry Dairy Free Yogurts  Rollback
Koko is a great brand, and I must say, I completely love this combination of coconut and strawberries . Its a great alternative to dairy or soya and if your like me and love the coconut taste then this is a great replacement product.

Luckily over the years the gluten free and diary free market has evolved . After some careful research and keeping a food diary I noticed that I had an intolerance to wheat and dairy as they both made me feel bloated and in constant pain, I wanted to try and test out what was on offer so I signed up Juvela newsletter  they also offer a free starter pack of great products, and can honestly say I never turned back. Since then I have tried so many different products from various brands and I can honestly say the taste, and variety has really developed over the years. Lastly I must say I'm not a medical, health or nutrition professional, so its important that if you have any symptom's that are bothering you, please consult with a professional first before taking action.
