Food intollerances, dietary requirements and our family of four!
We are “The Braithwaite’s”. I am Ali, Mum of the family. I’ve been vegetarian for over 30 years now and thought I was quite difficult to feed until my husband was diagnosed wheat and dairy intolerant and my youngest daughter had a lactose intolerance. Suddenly I was cooking four different meals every night! My eldest daughter is the “normal one” as she is affectionately known when discussing dietary needs.
Why this blog?
- To share good experiences of dining out with various food allergies/intollerances/preferences.
- To share our opinions on the free from ranges available from different shops/brands.
- To share free from recipes which we enjoy.
- To connect with others and find out about other good restaurants/hotels/stores which meet our needs!
Eating out can be very tricky and going on holiday even more of a worry. We’ve found some real gems and had some nightmares! Hopefully by sharing our experiences other individuals/families with similar dietary needs will avoid our mistakes and can enjoy the successes!
