On 3 May 2014, the Hungry Boyfriend became the Hungry Husband. Yes I tied the knot with my beautiful wife! For web purposes though I'm sticking with the Hungry Boyfriend, primarily because of the effort involved in changing it all over!
The Hungry Boyfriend - I am a twenty-something foodie that’s been gluten free for the last couple of years. I enjoy nothing more than a good meal; whether in a Michelin starred restaurant in London, a café in a side street of Prague, cooked myself or prepared by my wife. I love blogging and like hearing from you!
I was diagnosed as a coeliac in early 2011 and have been completely gluten free since. Gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye triggers an immune reaction in people with coeliac disease. It damages the small intestines; the only treatment is a completely gluten free diet. That means absolutely no gluten, even the tiniest trace can trigger adverse reactions. I'm a food lover, not a medical expert so any medical questions need to be directed to a medical expert.
I set up this site because I've found blogs, twitter and other online resources invaluable in finding out more information. I don't let being gluten free stop me eating what I want to eat. You just need to find the right restaurants and adapt recipes and you really should be able to eat all your favourite dishes. Check out the recipes and restaurant reviews on the site for some great examples!
Hope you enjoy the site.
