FAIRY TALE

Mirror mirror on the wall, what's the worst thing about fairy tales? Ali Walsh looks into it…

Is it just me or is anyone else fed up with fairy tales? Those stories we were told as children where the main characters live happily ever after and then it’s the end of the story – surely that’s not healthy?

Admittedly, bad things happen in fairy tales, so they’re not all fluff and glitter. But to suggest you can go through a battle, win and then never have to worry again – how does that equip us for real life? I’ll begin with my own story – the one where after years of pain I got my coeliac diagnosis. Admittedly, for a while it felt as though I had my happy ending – no more doubling over in agony, no more worrying about why I was suffering. I also had an unexpected (healthy) weight loss.

About Gluten-Free Heaven

Welcome to the SPRING issue of Gluten-Free Heaven, and what a prolonged winter we've had to endure – so much rain and so much devastation across the country. However, the daffodils are out, the lawn has finally had a trim and the water tap from up high has tightened its nozzle somewhat. Best of all though, we are into spring food, which means lovely greens, light and healthy tarts and pies, frittatas and salads bursting with vibrant colours, and of course flavour. We have put together a spring section of recipes that covers all those ideas and many more. Also this issue, we continue with our gluten-free Q&A series, answering everyday questions you might have about living on a gf diet. We also get to the bottom of common misconceptions about coeliac disease and gluten intolerance, cook cauliflower eight ways and go back to 'pastry school', where we learn to make a simple and staple sweet or savoury pastry, perfect for those lovely spring pies and tarts we can now get stuck into! We hope you enjoy trying some of the recipes this issue – please do let us know how you have got on. Anyway, until next month, cheers!
