Introducing Us!

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!
