So I’ve recently adopted a gluten free vegan diet. Finding the basics, such as bread can be a real challenge! Do you know that feeling when you excitedly find a yummy looking gluten free item in the ‘Free From’ section only to turn it over and see egg in the ingredients (so close darnit!). But fear not, there are some awesome gluten free, vegan options out there that need to get in your belly right now.

Gluten Free Vegan Bread & Cakes
I found this to be a particularly difficult item to find. It may be worth investing in a breadmaker as gluten free bread can be expensive. This bread maker is specifically designed for making gluten free loaves. (available from Ebay or Amazon). A lot of modern bread making machines do have a gluten free setting, but you wouldn’t want to cross contaminate if you’re making both ordinary and gluten free bread in the same machine.
Gluten free vegan bread available at Sainsbury’s These loaves are £3 each.
Gluten free vegan white bread available at Ocado

In the article below HypothyroidMom.com list the common symptoms of gluten sensitivity. There is also a list of some autoimmune diseases known to be related to gluten sensitivity — Coeliac Disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Graves’ Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Vitiligo, Sjogren’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, and Type 1 Diabetes.
Despite taking medication for Hashimoto’s for years I haven’t really felt any benefit. I kept on reading that cutting out gluten (and coffee too!) may benefit me so I’ve decided it’s time to give this a try. I quickly realised that there’s quite a few gluten free items for sale in the supermarkets and some great vegan products too. However finding gluten free vegan was a bit more of a challenge but not impossible. So I will add any great resources I find to this list and feel free to add your own in the comments section.
