Welcome to my new blog. Eating with food sensitivities or allergies can be rather challenging when you just love food, especially when you find out the things you really love are the ones that are making you ill – it’s just not fair!

Three years ago I finally discovered the cause of my migraines and general fatigue – a sensitivity to dairy and yeast. Going on holiday to France would never be the same again – those long lazy lunches filled with fresh baguette, ripe cheese and washed down with a glass or two of the local wine were suddenly just a distant memory. And as for the desert list at any restaurant – they’re just a right off; even if there is a fruit salad, it’s nothing compare to a deliciously delectable chocolate fudge cake or wonderful sweet and creamy banoffee pie.

Of course I could just carry on eating as normal, but suddenly they lost their appeal as the knowledge that I would suffer for it the next day or maybe two or three just didn’t seem worth it. So started my search for a ‘cure’ as well as decent, tasty alternatives. Not being a big meat eater has added to the challenge, especially as many vegetarian alternatives contain yeast in varying forms. Then moving from the UK and it’s marvellous array of convenience foods and ‘free from’ products to India just increased the food experimentation project, as I’ve had to learn how to make many products from scratch. And it’s actually much easier than I thought.
