Elisa is an experienced gluten-free traveler that always brings a very curious item with her: a little device that can test if there’s gluten in the food you are about to eat.
I was doing my groceries when I suddenly laid my eyes on a nice piece of mango at a very good price, so I told myself “let’s do something out of it and try new stuff”. I had previously tasted mango, but I remember not being especially fond of it and preferring papaya in lieu, which I found more appealing to my sweet tooth. But sometimes your taste evolves and you find yourself surprisingly enjoying foods for which you didn’t feel that attraction earlier. I’m glad I was mistaken about mango, because oh boy, where have you been all my life?
Something happens in Madrid when temperatures start to dwindle (and most likely in many other Spanish cities) as a curious phenomenon takes place at breakfast time. Let’s have a look at the cafeterias, shall we? Surprisingly, the café con leche is no longer that popular as a deeper, richer and more comforting drink has replaced it: a wonderful hot chocolate! Which comes of course with a side of lovely churros.
These pancakes were going to be part of my review of VIPS restaurant new gluten-free menu, but then I realized that these beauties deserved their own entry. Don't you agree?
I was checking the new IKEA catalogue when I came accros a very interesting page that inmediatly caught my eye. Curiosly, it was not featuring furniture, but a new food arrival to their restaurant and food section: new veggie balls that not only are vegetarian, but also gluten-free and lactose-free.
I have to confess that I wasn’t very enthusiast about gazpacho until recently; despite its popularity I just couldn’t understand the hype about it. I would have to add that my experience was limited to the buy-at-the-store versions.
But this summer the heat hit quite strong and was calling for refreshing foods. Then (perfect timing) I had the opportunity to taste a fantastic, homemade organic gazpacho and I just fall in love with it. Now I understood the greatness of this amazing yet simple cold tomato soup: healthy, delicious and very nutritious. Oh, did I mention that it’s also vegan?
Today I would like to welcome you to the new Glutenacious Life site, or as I like to call it, Glutenacious Life 3.0.
In case you hadn’t notice during the past weeks, the webpage address has changed from myglutenaciouslife to www.glutenaciouslife.com, hope this will make it easier for you to track me on the net.
It wasn’t that long ago that I became aware that gluten can be hidden in cosmetics and toiletries as well, so it’s nice to find companies like Evolution of Smooth (eos) offering cosmetics not containing gluten in its ingredients.
So you wanna visit the City of Lights and are wandering whether you'll be able to keep up with your celiac diet and to which places you could go?

Oh, tapas, the quintessential feature of the sweet Spanish life. Let me take you on a tapas crawl in the madrileño neighbourhood of Lavapiés. Beware, because these aren’t just the regular tapas you can find everywhere, but an international version to eat your way around the world (and of course, they are celiac friendly).
Are you ready to taste some delicious tapas? Let’s go!
Hello everyone! Summer season is not over yet and temperatures are still up, what about cooling it down with this fresh and delicious oeufs mimosa? It can be served as an appetizer or main course and it's a classic in my family during Summer time.
The recipe is easy peasy and you'll be surprised on how little time it takes, so it's perfect for when you don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen and rather enjoy the lovely weather outside.
So let me share with you my family recipe of these beautiful oeufs mimosa, which of course are gluten-free. I hope that you will like it as much as I do.
Are you traveling this summer and feeling a bit anxious about the incoming trip?
You know I love to travel, and being coeliac hasn't stop me doing so, but it's true that it requires some planning: which restaurants will you go to; talking in a different language when traveling abroad; explaining the staff what you can or cannot eat; venturing to do the grocery on your own in a different country- which products will I be able to eat? Are they really certified to be gluten free?
When traveling abroad there are many unknowns about the "gluten free situation", and it's normal to feel a bit anxious, after all we want to enjoy our trip as much as trying the local cuisine, no stress attached. Luckily, our friends from Goodness Direct and Coeliac UK have prepared this lovely infographic with tips, key phrases in other languages, local gluten free brands and the stores where to buy them, for most popular destinations in Europe and America.
Hello everyone and happy World Book Day!
To honour this day I would like to share with you a very special and unique event I had recently the opportunity to attend: a Books and Coffee pairing.
Wait, what did you say? Matching books and coffee? Yes! Come along and enjoy this selection of coffees and books.
Great little changes have taken place recently during the past weeks, have you noticed?
First of all, I'm happy to announce you that MY GLUTENACIOUS LIFE is now .COM !
Secondly, I have joined some more social media.
Hello everyone! It's been a year since I last saw you, so let’s kick off 2015 in a very special (and sweet) way: with a new cuisine experience! (Warning, there's chocolate involved!) What a better way to start off the weekend than by doing a chocolate tasting? I couldn't imagine neither a sweeter nor more delicious way. Whether it was about the experience of doing a chocolate tasting (my first one!) or the fact that it was all gluten free, I won’t deny that I was really excited to appeal my sweet tooth.
