Zucchini and Polenta Fritters

I am the girl with the packed lunch. But taking a filling packed lunch becomes harder without wheat or grains. I love salads and soups, but they’re messy, and sometimes they just don’t cut it.

Cornflake Crusted Chicken Schnitzel (Low-FODMAP, Gluten-free)

As a child my favourite dinner was schnitzel! The crunchy breadcrumbed exterior made meat so much more exciting.(I really wasn’t into roast and used to drown fish fingers in mayonnaise when I was forced to eat them. Nowadays my family has replaced wheaten breadcrumbs with the gluten-free and FODMAP friendly cornflake (which is arguably more tasty). Instead of…

Basic Oat Pancakes

There’s nothing I enjoy more than pancakes on a Sunday morning. But when someone in the house can’t have wheat they tend to miss out. Oats make great wholemeal flour which is dense and filling. These pancakes stick together like regular pancakes but you will find that they keep you full all morning and are less moreish than…
