My Partner Glutened me last night!
We were all settled, curled up on the sofa ready to watch a film on tv when my fella decided to get some drinks & nibbles for us. With Christmas approaching, we had been stocking up on the nibbly items, the Coeliac friendly, as well as the ones the rest of the family like to nibble on. My favourite being mixed fruit & nuts. As an extra treat..I'd managed to find some gluten free honey roasted cashew nuts. So when my fella reappeared with a glass of Baileys & a bowl of nuts, I didn't think to check which nuts he's added to the mix.
About half an hour into the film, I became aware I was feeling rather 'windy', we'd had our Sunday lunch with 5 different veg- guess who's still struggling with anaemia- so didn't think to question why I was feeling bloated.
Then the shivers set in, it wasn't until I'd broken out in what I'd 1st thought was a bad 'hot flush' followed quickly by a cold clammy sweat & then by a combination of Asthma attacks & vomiting , that realisation set in. I had been Glutened!
Turns out my daughter had opened a packet of dry roasted, left a few in the packet & not wanting them to go to waste, my fella added them to the mix!
So this Christmas/ Holiday time
Be careful of the Nuts that come your way!
