    Hannlib got a reaction from Masonmadhouse in Coconut Aminos in UK   
    Hi there ... I have checked this with Melissa as I could not see any way that a product with added coconut sugar is compliant. She agrees. These aminos are NOT compliant, because of the coconut sugar.
    There are other brands available in the UK which do not contain coconut sugar and are compliant.

    The trickiest thing I've struggled to find compliant here is mustard, especially dijon. The Co-op do a compliant dijon and wholegrain mustard but they are the only ones I've found.
     
    The Waitrose Cook's ingredients coconut milk (with a blue label) is the best flavoured of all the compliant coconut milks (some are compliant but have the carboxy methyl cellulose in which I think tastes icky). Morrisons also do compliant coconut milk pouches - own brand. 
     
    I buy coconut aminos on Amazon.
     
    I do most of my shopping in Lidl and get compliant smoked salmon and bacon there - just the basic stuff. They also do a proscuitto style ham which is compliant. Fruit/ veg/ raw meats are all great and as others have said compliant tinned tomatoes, passata, puree as well as fish -  tuna, salmon, sardines etc are very easy to find anywhere. 
     
    Tesco do some compliant cornichons/ gherkins. Olives are easy to find.
     
    Mattheson's smoked pork sausage is compliant. I was astounded by this as it's always been seen as emergency/ camping/ barely food. But it is compliant, if not exactly the most organic grass reared protein source on earth. It is also shelf stable and doesn't need to be refrigerated. It's filling protein and good in a pinch.

    It's a very, very sad time for UK politics :-( I am utterly ashamed to be English at the moment.

    I am a total convert, I absolutely love it!! As do both my kids, and even my husband said he liked it too. In fact I have only 4 bottles left of 20, and it only arrived a week or so ago.....
    So yep. I need to brew. I'm going round in circles about what to order from Love Kombucha. I was sold on continuous brew, but then I read some stuff that put me off (about all the caffeine and sugar not being as properly fermented out as with batch brewing). But I want quantity!! So I am procrastinating, and have nearly run out of booch. I need to bite the bullet!!

    Did you see the way the BBC reported this story?? I was SEETHING about it yesterday. The BBC in collusion with the government in collusion with the (junk) food industry? Surely not .....

    Good spot! On the gf sausages page it lists as vegetable flakes but on the gf chipolata page this is specified as pea flakes.
    Disappointing, Abel & Cole.

    I absolutely LOVE oily fish but it repeats on me something dreadful. Sardines and mackerel are the worst but I'm not even getting on with salmon anymore. It's very disappointing.

    Thanks for the pointers to the sulfur/thiol and FODMAP stuff.  I am pretty sure it's neither one of those -- I actually feel better when I eat beans, for example, than I do when I don't eat them.  And the same is true with most crucifers as well -- except broccoli -- and many of the other things on those lists.  Beets slow my digestion way down, as does kombucha and a few other things, so I avoid them.  And broccoli gives me bloat, gas, and pain as if it were full of lactose.  It's far worse when it's raw and far better when completely cooked.  Never have been able to figure either one out, so I just work around them.
     
    ThyPeace, and your classwork sounds very interesting!

    Following your experiment with interest. I could do with doing similar, but I need to deal with my post Christmas SUGAR issues first. I noticed that when I east leftovers for breakfast and / or lunch as well as dinner I have more bloating and digestive misery. My dinner meals tend to contain more onion, garlic etc - if I prepare plainer food for breakfast and lunch I fare better. Off to download that FODMAP chart ..

    This morning I had a quick version of the paleomg buffalo chicken 'pasta'. Fried some already chopped onions, added zoodles, already cooked chicken and some carrot strips made with my peeler. Heated it all, dumped mayo and Frank's on top, heated it more. Utterly delicious.
