I had my first try of @pizzaexpress
gluten free pasta on Wednesday, I'm always hesitant to order pasta as I hate it when it's hard and chewy, but luckily this was lovely. I had the pollo pesto pasta and requested no red onions, and was very happy when it actually came without them. I really wish Pizza Express would get gluten free stickers, they say if your pizza doesn't come on a black board then you should ask, but my colleague ordered a normal pizza and hers came on a black board so now I'm a bit dubious about the black board meaning gluten free! I also ate this on the day I got glutened so who knows 🤔🤔.
Happy Friday everyone! Last night I tried out @ashasmanchesteruk
whilst they have 40% off for January. They have tons of gluten free options, unfortunately none of the starters are gluten free but the waiter asked the chef if I could have one of the mains as a starter and he agreed. I had the Paneer Ka Soola to start and Tandoori Murg Tikka for mains and they were both very tasty, we all struggled to finish our mains as the rice portions are very large - even though we shared rice between two people! *
The meal came to £24 each for four people with the 40% off, without it, it would've been around £37 which would've been very pricey! The waiter accidentally dropped two whole pints of beer (liquid gluten 😂) over me and my friend so we got a round of drinks for free, but other than that mishap I'd definitely go there again for a special occasion.
Did you know you can order our Drizzle Cakes whole? Or get it doubled up for bigger celebrations! 🐝🍊
It’s wet, it’s cold, I cut my 10k to 6k because my knees are falling off but I’M GOING OUT FOR BRUNCH 🥂☺️🙌🏻 Yaaass! Me and my friends are heading back to #westDidsbury
for some breakfast and catch ups. For now here’s a throwback to last Sunday’s #brunch

CHEESY BEAN TOAST 🧀
The love affair with @ezraandgil
grows. When I leave #Manchester
this year I think leaving these guys will be my biggest heartbreak. 😍😆
KING PAD THAI 👑
Vegans, look away. I’m sorry but I LOVE egg, in any form tbh 🙈 so when I saw that #tompopo
wrapped in an #omelette
I was all over it! It was strange, but I loved it!
I was going to start 2019 with a positive attitude, but having brought in the New year with a splitting headache, coming home to the dog having 💩 all over the livingroom and being very ill myself this morning 💩💩 my go get 'em attitude is somewhat defeated 😂. But here are my numerous 2019 resolutions, some a little harder to achieve than others! I felt like I was struggling towards the end of 2018 as I'm pretty introverted and overthink a lot so I often feel like I don't fit in and that people aren't interested because I'm quiet (probably true 😂). So I'm going to be myself, spend less time trying to win people round and worry less about what people think. I'm also going to try and talk to you all a bit more and might even speak on my stories but I am slightly anxious about that 😰😂. 2019 can start tomorrow 😉. #2019 #resolution #nye #newyear #goals #motivation #freefromblogger #foodblogger #lowfodmap #freefrom #madewithout #ibs #guthealth #coeliac #celiac #glutenfreemcr #manchester #gfblogger #gffriendly #gffoodie
MAKE IT MERINGUE 🥰🍓
Hands up, how many of you had a #meringue
based desert on Christmas Day?! 🙋🏼♀️ They’re such a go to option for #coeliacs
and I LOVE THEM! This dreamy pud was made by Mr Glutenfreemcr family as it was as delicious as it looked! 🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🥰🥂
SALMON AND EGGS 🍳🥂 Is there anything better than smoked salmon, poached egg, a pile of salad and huge chunks of avocado?!?! No. I didn’t think so. @ezraandgil
putting all the good stuff in one dream bowl.
BREAKFAST CLUB 🍳
It’s Saturday!!!! I’m already up and on my way to hot yoga 🧘🏼♀️ which is one of my fave ways to start the weekend, followed by BRUNCH!
Now I have a bigger kitchen I’m loving doing more at home so rather than paying £12 for someone else to put egg on toast, I do my own 😆🙈 This #shakshuka
recipe, so easy to make and SO tasty! I’ll be making it for more friends tomorrow! Who fancies it?! 🤤🍅🍳🥚🍞🥬🧀
BACK TO WORK 😪
Anybody else facing the office today?! Maybe cheer yourself up with a little lunch treat? .
This lovely lunch of chicken schwarma and roast potatoes was my Christmas Eve dish from the £10 lunch menu at @fikamcr
After London pals rubbing it in our faces for years, @dishoom
is FINALLY here in #Manchester
and bloody hell, it’s good 😍🤤
They have a #glutenfreemenu
and will speak to the chef about any allergies. Here you can see a mix of #paneer #dahl
and the gunpowder potatoes. Amazing flavours and beautiful atmosphere! Serious ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Another day another unicorn cake! 🌈🦄
Boozy brunch with the girls 👯♀️ The food was nice, and the bottomless mimosas went down a treat and awesome company obvs. ❗️The only downside is one that unfortunately happens quite a lot and I feel I have to address it ... The menu said gluten free bread available, great? However it wasn’t available and it felt like the decision about whether food was gluten free or not was down to me. Now, I get kitchens can’t swab for gluten particles every 5 minutes - but I don’t think putting the pressure on the customer to make a decision whether food is safe or not is very fair. Basically what Pret and the supermarkets recently got in shit for right? I’d much rather a venue say with confidence that they will do everything to make sure cross contamination is minimised rather than stress me out having to feel put on the spot - just so they are covered. (I did call in advance by the way and they said yes no problem to gluten free) Anyway rant over - they did cook my food separately (we hope?!) but seriously foodies, sort it out. The rules are going to change so customers feel safer, so you might as well keep ahead! And don’t put gluten free on the menu if it’s not gluten free / safe for coeliacs?! *
Rant over. Food: smashed avocado, halloumi and creamy mushrooms.

FESTIVE AT FIKA 🥕🥕🥕
Anyone else ‘working’ this week but only feeling like, 20% in it?! 😆 🙋🏼♀️ .
I’m having such a nice working week that I met my lovely friend for a lunch at @fikamcr
which is on Lever Street here in the #northernquarter
FIKA is a Scandi inspired bar/restaurant with friendly staff, a cosy fire and epic gin selection 👌🏼 The £10 lunch menu is WELL worth dropping in for and they’re great at keeping things #coeliac
