Set in the heart of Leigh Broadway, Leigh Bistro is the Modern European restaurant and clearly the place to be as it was packed! I went there last week for a Christmas gathering with the ballet ladies. Here is what I thought of the Christmas menu and the gluten free options!
Ah Christmas time! A time to spread the joy and love with our friends and family. Our social calendars are filling up with work parties, family gatherings and our friends’ shindigs. Lots of merriment, drinking and stuffing our faces. We certainly do not want to be getting glutened at this merry time of year! Here are some of my top tips to help you steer clear of gluten this holiday season.
I recently worked with BarleyCup, which is an instant cereal drink made from natural ingredients. Their products are gluten free, vegan and caffeine free! I was interested to try these as an alternative to my usual cups of tea! I conducted a little experiment with some ladies from my dance class as well as family members to see whether they could taste any difference to their usual hot beverages.
Eat your greens! They are good for you! I always try and use greens in my cooking as much as I can. Asparagus is packed with vitamins and minerals as well as iron, calcium, protein and fibre. Courgettes are low calorie and contain no saturated fats or cholesterol and have many benefits including improving digestion.
