I have recently gone on a wheat-free diet and I have realized that it actually quite hard to find products and food on the go, that is wheat free, not to mention gluten-free.
I have recently embarked on a mission to find the best food and places to eat that offer wheat & gluten free yummy alternatives, and I am going to share my finding here on the blog.
Here I am going to start with bread, a basic staple, that is essential when you are on the go all the time and don’t have time to cook some grains.
Beyond bread Gluten-free sourdough £ 4.50 (gluten-free)
This gluten-free bakery and cafe’ is a real gem, and it is specialized in gluten-free bakery products and food. With three branches in London ( Fitzrovia, Selfridges, Islington) it is definitely a place to take note on our diary if you are looking for a place to eat something delicious and gluten free.
Their white sourdough is definitively the best gluten-free bread I have ever tasted, the perfect substitute for ciabatta bread, and it even pass the olive oil test. I love it!
La Poilane Rye sliced sourdough bread £ 2.50 (wheat-free)
Conveniently sliced, this wheat-free bread is tasty and filling. It is the type of bread of which you can appreciate the texture and taste, but that you won’t binge on, make it perfect if you want to keep your weight under control. It does contain gluten, but often people who are sensitive to wheat can tolerate rye, so it be worth to consider. You can find this bread at branches of Waitrose, Wholefoods and Ocado.
Wholefoods light rye bread (sliced) £ 4 (wheat-free)
Milder in taste and softer that the Poilane one, this bread is delicious and winner with any type of food. It is a bit expensive, but it is sliced which make it quite convenient can be frozen really well.
Wholefoods malted wholemeal loaf £ 1.29
The best convenience bread, that can be frozen and kept for those late night toasts. I used for everything, and it is a great all rounder. It does contain gluten and wheat, but I thought it was a good option for those like me on a low wheat and low gluten diet, rather than free from. It is wholemeal and contains seeds, which make it filling.
