Coeliacbrities

Celebrities- they’re just like us! Minus the private jets, personal chefs, perfume endorsements, ability to actually find something when they Google themselves…. Okay, maybe the rich, famous and beautiful aren’t on the exact same page as us, but if there’s one thing privilege can’t buy it’s resilience to illness. Even shiny-haired starlets, Hollywood leading men and Oscar winners fall victim to conditions like Coeliac disease. Here are some of high profile names who have been diagnosed with Coeliac disease:

Zooey Deschanel

Danni Minogue

Emmy Rossum

Chelsea Clinton

And then we have the gluten intolerant:

Billy Bob Thornton

Juliette Lewis

Rachel Weisz

And those who follow a gluten free diet for the hell of it:

Jennifer Aniston

Gwyneth Paltrow

Victoria Beckham

Admittedly, these gluten free A-listers usually have a team of chefs, dieticians and nutritionists on hand to attend to their dietary needs.  But we believe that having a healthy, balanced diet all comes down to being ingredient savvy- whether you have Coeliac disease, gluten intolerant or are trying to cut down on wheat for weight loss reasons!

Product of the week

There is a myth that Gluten-Free products do not taste good as the “Real thing” (what constitutes the “Real Thing” anyway!?) I have therefore attempted to have a week of eating gluten-free products myself. It cost me a bit more out of my pocket but I have definitely discovered some amazing products. One I would like to showcase is Three Bean’s Gluten-Free choc mud cookie.

Where? These bad boys are found across most Three Bean’s cafes across Sydney. One cafe that definitely stocks them is the one next to Mamak on Eat Street in Chatswood.

Price? $3.80. Sure they are a little pricey for a cookie, but these are oh so worth it.

Taste? This cookie literally melts in your mouth (maybe because it is made probably of 70% dark chocolate). It is rich but light at the same time as it crumbles in your mouth. I don’t know if it is just me but I find they have a subtle mint texture to them as well.

Why are you still reading this? Go out and try one for yourself right now!

Hungry?

 Hello food fanatics,

Welcome to IngrediEAT, a page created by two girls who love their carbs, dairy and great food in general. In fact, we love it so much that one day we were sitting down (drinking a milkshake) when we started wondering what life would be like without frozen yoghurt and toasted sandwiches. That’s when we realised that unfortunately, there are people who cannot eat these foods we take for granted every day.

1 in 100 Australians suffer from food allergies. Whether you are lactose allergic or have coeliac disease and cannot eat any wheat- restrictions are never any fun. But never fear because IngrediEAT is here! We are here to help you look on the bright side of your allergies. This blog will soon be filled with delicious gluten-free and dairy-free recipes, as well as tips on how you can best manage a lifestyle with your food allergies. We guarantee to teach you to be more ingredient savvy with your food and direct you to the best eateries with allergy-conscious menus. Hopefully your diet plans will be transformed into something so delicious that you will start thinking-“what allergies?”

For those who also just want to clean up you diets or lower your carb intake, this blog would be great for you as well. We are avid believers of the old adage “you are what you eat” and this plays a bit part in our attitude towards food.  This page will soon turn into an overload of healthy deliciousness and we hope that with each visit, your craving to go for a Macca’s run will slowly disappear.

Happy reading!

Anna
