Eff You Gluten Free Bun!!


I was so excited for my home-made lunchtime open sandwich with avocado, baby spinach, tuna and parmesan. Been thinking about my Saturday lunch for about two days as I’ve not really been doing bread-type carbs much lately.

Today was the day. I assembled it, put it under the griller, got it out, resisted the urge to instagram a photo of it (I’ve been told it’s super boring of me to catalog everything I eat!) and am about to enjoy it when…..failure.

I’ve been brutally let down by the gluten free bun which turned into sawdust the second I picked it up.

Help me gluten-free warriors – will I ever find the perfect gluten free bread replacement?

This was the one I tried today:


Still sad. I want a sandwich. Instead I picked at a plate of the topping while the ‘tank child’ we call kid#2 licked the crumbs that should have been a bun directly off my plate. So now I’m both disappointed and a little grossed out by my offspring.

Any ideas on making living gluten free less suck-tacular?

  1. Try Kersten’s Kitchen FB page, lots of great gluten/dairy/soy free recipes, if you don’t mind a little time in the kitchen. Suitable for food intolerance too. I tried some commercial GF bread the other day and agree, it was gross. Kersten’s recipes make it decent though.

  2. i can’t help you with gluten free foods, but i can understand your frustration at not being able to eat whatever takes your fancy, i have a nut allergy and haven’t been able to have any asian/indian foods that are not prepared at home for years because it is just too risky. here’s to hoping that you find a decent gluten free bread soon 🙂

  3. Zehnders bread (http://www.zehnder.com.au/ made in Maleny Qld and sold frozen) is awesome. My coeliac son loves it. I noticed that it is sold in Tasmania. He also loves the Simply Wiz bread mix. That Living Well stuff is terrible – twice I’ve bought it and it was mouldy. What a waste.
