New look for this blog

Some of you who have followed me previously may be wondering where this blog has popped up from. I realised I hadn’t warned about or explained any changes, so let me take this opportunity to do that.

I had this blog a few years ago and it was called The Coeliac Times. However I stopped posting for some reason or another and the blog got neglected. This year I decided to start a new blog, the Gluten Free Cat Lady, with much more of a focus on video content. However, I didn’t want to lose previous posts I had written, so I decided to instead rebrand and rename this existing wordpress blog.

So here I am, Josie the Gluten Free Cat Lady! Hoping to upload a video to YouTube every Tuesday, and a blog post here every Friday. I will of course post the videos here too, but if you have a youtube account it would be amazing if you could subscribe to my channel.

You can also follow me on social media. Twitter @gfcatlady, Instagram @glutenfreecatlady and Follow my blog with Bloglovin

To go along with the new name I needed a new look. Luckily I have a creative brother who was happy to turn my vague idea of using emojis as a logo into something slick and professional looking! Thanks bro.

Latitude Gluten Free- The Genius Perfect Toast Tour

ImageHaving a look at the Latitude site map I noticed a familiar logo, that of Genius Gluten Free Bread! It turns out that Genius are taking their bread around the UK this summer on their Perfect Toast tour, and they will be at Latitude! I assume handing out FREE gluten free toast, to me, every day 🙂

Allergy and Free From Show 2013

ImageEarlier this month I attended the Allergy and Free From show in London with my friend Rachel (she’s not gluten free but I like to think of her as a Coeliac Sympathiser). I wasn’t sure what to expect as I hadn’t been before, but I really enjoyed it. I noticed that gluten free really dominated the show, which is fine for me as I am just gluten free, but it was also good to see other food intolerances and allergies being represented, always good to learn about these things. I think my favourite part of the show was the free tasters, so weird to be able to pick things up from any stall and eat it! Everything I tasted was lovely, and although I tasted them in a strange order of sweet and savoury all mixed up, it was sooo good!
