Just tried these for the first time and they are surprisingly tasty. I’m always a little wary with Schar products because I have tried some of their gluten-free biscuits in the past and they tasted awful. These, however, are flavourful and only 24kcal per. Also, low in fibre, so me-friendly.

So, under the advise of the hospital dietitian, I am now on a low fibre diet. It means cutting out a lot of stuff but there’s still plenty I can eat. I have been given a couple of food tables to help me prepare me-friendly meals, and I’ve kept the copy of the low-residue menu I was given at the hospital. I’m still reducing my gluten intake but I’m not going to be as strict as it doesn’t seem to be working as well for me. Bread is my main issue, however, crumpets – which you’d think would be worse than bread – I can handle. That means, today’s lunch consists of a toasted crumpet with a fried egg on top.

I might try making my own gluten-free bread later. I’m borrowing my parents bread-maker at the moment so I may as well try it.
