Dreaming of a Wheat Christmas #1

Whether you celebrate it or not, There's no escaping Christmas and all of it's forbidden luxurious foods. Cakes. Gingerbread. Mince pies. Christmas Pudding. Even flippin' turkey stuffing!

Well listen up fellow wheat dodgers, this is going to be the best ever Christmas EVER, because I won't have you wandering about looking all sad and hungry at 'the most wonderful time of the year'.

First things first.

Above is a list of what you can have that takes absolutely no effort whatsoever. Why not print it off and give it to everyone you know?! (Just click on it and press print). Sod 'Oh, I don't want to be a fuss'. Us wheat dodgers are not missing out on the fun!

(I'm still trying to find out if the very popular Starbucks Gingerbread Latte is GF by the way. They are very secretive about the ingredients).

If you're mad enough to host Christmas dinner, M&S have a really good Food to Order catalogue that has a key to gluten free items such as the Bronze Turkey. (You may want to get your skates on if you want to order one though). You can pick one up in store.

If you are catering for a coeliac or wheat dodger, you can now order gluten free hampers that will save you trawling around the shops. There is no one store that sells everything so it's a much easier option as seeking out such goodies is a bit of an art form. One option can be found on the Distinctly British website.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting special Wheat Surrender original and adapted recipes for those of you who fancy cooking some lovely Christmas food that wheat eaters won't turn their nose up at.

Ask Santa for some stretchy pants. You're gonna need 'em.


  1. Hey - found this blog this afternoon and have spent the past hour reading old entries.

    Am very fond of the term 'wheat-dodgers' and have picked up some tips.


  2. Hi Kip
    I'm really pleased you have found some tips! If you have any of your own, please feel free to share as I'm learning stuff all the time.
    Merry Christmas Wheat dodger!
