The London Club for anyone wishing to socialize and eat out gluten-free. For any reason!
We meet to eat out at cafes, restaurants, enjoy free-from events and workshops and sometimes taste-test gluten-free goodies. Many members also avoid other allergens such as lactose and nuts too so venues catering for multiple allergies are especially appreciated :-)
Come and join us on a hopefully lovely summer day for a friendly, gluten free picnic in a park! We do this annually and the *weather is always good*. Yes it is.
Stella and I will bring lots of food to share. You can too! Bring anything you like so long as it is gluten free! I will make sure to bring and share vegan food so that the event is vegan friendly too.
To confirm you will join please post a comment after RSVPing. I ask for this to get a better fix on numbers as RSVPs alone are kinda unreliable!
What to comment? Tell us your favourite picnic food!
Southwark Park is a nice big park, easy to get to & I happen to live nearby so can easily bring along picnic supplies like blankets, cups, bottles of water etc.
***What should I bring?***
Just bring gluten-free food to share. I will bring disposable cups, cutlery, plates and bowls and some picnic blankets.
Please do not bring ants
***Is this veggie or vegan friendly?***
Yes. Our event will not be fully veggie or vegan but I will supply plenty of vegan food :-)
The bacteria in and on our bodies vastly outnumber our human cells and DNA, Our gut microbiome is beginning to be thought of as have enormous influences on our health and guess what, celiacs tend to to have a different profile to non-celiacs. Want to know more?
I sure do, so I joined the British Gut Project http://www.britishgut.org/
This is a fascinating, partly crowd-funded scientific study into the relationship between our health and our microbiome. By participating you can -
• Discover your personal gut bacteria profile
• See how your profile compares to others
• Help enable the ongoing study and advance of knowledge
This meetup is open-ended. If you also sign up, or have already, RSVP here. Once there are a few of us I'll arrange a place and time for us to meetup, share our results and speculate on their reasons.
Do be aware that participation doesn’t bring with it any advice or recommendations. If you want to know more I recommend these two great introductory videos to the topic.
