Who are you and where are you?
My name is Rachel and I live in Leicester in the United Kingdom 🙂
Tell me about your relationship with gluten..
I was just diagnosed with coeliac disease in April 2012 so I’m still going through the grieving period. At the beginning I Â hated being the way I was, due to the massive changes I knew I had to make in order for myself to feel better. It has only been over the past two months where I have really appreciated how well people cope with it and that life isn’t so different being gluten free. I now enjoy eating gluten free but I still get horrible pains as I am still healing. I hope these pains go away very soon and I can fully enjoy being coeliac.
Why should gluten free travellers visit your town?
In the centre of Leicester there are many restaurants which make there own gluten free pasta and pizza such as Bella Italia and Zizzi. The staff are knowledgeable and I haven’t had any reactions as yet.
Tell me something fun about your town..
The people are kind and it is a very quiet leisured place.
Where is your favourite place to eat out in your town and why?
My favourite place to eat is Bella Italia. They do the best pizza, which looks and tastes like normal pizza, which we coeliacs know is important! Zizzi and Nando’s also do gluten free options and more recently, the Pizza Hutin Leicester offers gluten free pizza.
