Last week we learnt that our youngest Barbarian, Jeckle, has a wheat allergy. This means everything with wheat is now off the menu – and it’s amazing how many things contain wheat. Luckily he’s not coeliac, so if he does accidentally eat wheat the consequences aren’t as dire. Even so, it’s been many years of slowly worsening health to finally have an answer.
The battle is now cleaning out the pantry and re-thinking our diet. Turns out school lunch boxes are much harder to plan for.
If you have any suggestions or wheat-free recipes I’d love to hear them.
