Hello! I’m Niamh
a.k.a A Gluten Free Mummy
I’m a Home Economics and SEN teacher from Co. Galway, Ireland. I’m also mummy to Evie-Marie, who is now 13 months old.
So, why the gluten free food blog?
Well, long story short, from the age of 11 to 16 I was in and out of hospital with severe tummy pains. After every test, probe and medication going – as well as multiple abdominal surgeries – the doctors were still unable to diagnose a cause. On the way home from hospital one day when I was 16 years old, we stopped at a health shop. At her wits end, my mum told the lady working there about my constant abdominal pain, and how the cause couldn’t be found. That wonderful lady took one look at me and said ‘Put her on a gluten free diet immediately’. Overnight, my life changed, and I’ve now been gluten free – and pain free – for 17 years.
I’ve always loved to cook and bake, and over the years I’ve adapted many of my favourite family recipes to suit a gluten free diet. I’m passionate about helping others to adapt to a gluten free diet. For many, it’s a daunting prospect, so I hope this website will be a source of information, recipes and support.
Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions or queries.
Stay safe, happy and gleefully gluten free!
