    Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells. 
    Brace for Christmas chaos! In this special festive episode we chat to fabulous gluten free blogger guests Bryony Hopkins, Lottie Drynan and Cristina Segovia about how to navigate the Christmas season when you have dietary requirements. We all get a bit hyperactive (alcohol may also have been consumed during the recording of this episode…), so brace for a lot of jingle bells, us laughing at our own jokes and mildly PG content about double dipping. 

    We discuss: dairy free vs lactose free, gluten and dairy free Christmas dinner, low FODMAP meal options, top tips for staying safe and avoiding cross contamination stress at celebratory meals, the need for secret handbag snacks, what to do if you get glutened, gluten free vegetarian Christmas dinner options, party food, mince pies and lots more!

    Pearls of Wisdom - Living Your Best Gluten Free Life

    Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells.

    Episode 14 - this week’s podcast is the last in this series! But don’t fret, we will be back soon with our Christmas special before we kick off series 2 in 2020. This week you will find out Sarah’s big secret project plus some of the tasty Christmas snacks we have been tempted into eating early. Listen to find out why Sarah nearly cried in the middle of Asda, Laura’s newest crisp addiction and where you can buy the best gluten free birthday and celebration cakes from. We also answer a reader question about whether oats are gluten free, how to reintroduce them into your diet if you have cut them out and why gluten free oats are so much more expensive.

    This week’s 'interview' is a round up of all the best tips and advice we learnt from our brilliant Series 1 guests, who each week shared a pearl of wisdom. There was so much uplifting discussion and positivity that we want to bring that all together to create one big happy send off for this first series :)

    Ryan Panchoo - How to Grow a Free From Business

    Ryan Panchoo - How to Grow a Free From Business

    Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells. 
    Episode 13 - this week’s podcast is sugar-fuelled by gluten free doughnuts thanks to our absolute hero of a guest, Ryan Panchoo, who brought us some tasty treats to eat during this interview! Ryan is the founder of Borough 22, a gluten free vegan doughnut company based in London (who deliver across the UK). Borough 22 is a business bourne out of Ryan’s love for his family - with no decent products on the market that would satisfy their multiple dietary requirements, Ryan initially set out to simply create a delicious treat that his wife and children could eat.

    Fast forward several years Ryan now has a full time doughnut empire on his hands! We chatted to Ryan about why kids make the best recipe reviewers, the early days of his business, road tripping to the South West with a car full of doughnuts, using social media to grow your business, getting stocked Selfridges, having to rapidly learn the ropes, why sometimes you need to take a step back in order to improve, leaving his day job, how to safely produce gluten free products and the best egg substitutes in vegan baking.
    Before the interview, we have a Wetherspoon update for you, a shout out for Justin Bieber, details of Laura’s unfortunate kitchen disaster (and some spooky recipes in the works), a roundup of all the best gluten free Halloween product treats and some tips on how to handle being a gluten free guest at weddings.

    Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells. 
    Episode 12 - this week we headed down to Brixton market in London to interview Tom Barton, one of the co-founders of the Honest Burgers restaurant chain. Honest Burgers have an incredible array of gluten free choices on their menu and are very popular with coeliac and other gluten free customers because of this. We chatted to Tom about how Honest Burgers got started, why they began offering gluten free food a decade ago, gluten free flour vs gluten flour, the importance of catering safely for allergy sufferers and being inclusive, finding the right gluten free buns for their burgers, processes used to limit the risk of cross contamination and potential plans for international expansion.  
    Before the interview, Laura and Sarah talk about Sarah’s top secret project, gluten free Halloween, Wetherspoons, Pizza Express, barley malt vinegar and the gluten-y foods we really miss (and where you can get the best gluten free alternatives).

    OH CRUMBS EPISODE 11 FEAT LAURA STRANGE (MY GLUTEN FREE GUIDE)
    Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells. 
    Episode 11 - this week Sarah asks Laura about her life as a coeliac, with Laura being diagnosed 20 years ago. We touch on some very personal topics in the hope this might be helpful for some of our listeners going through similar experiences, including fertility issues. Sarah and Laura chat about: Laura’s coeliac diagnosis, anaemia and severe weight loss as symptoms of CD, life before and after diagnosis (including some tricky teenage years), Laura’s gluten free travel adventures and why travelling with a newborn is actually much easier than you would think. We also discuss infertility fears, how not to let them get you down and why you shouldn’t give up hope, coeliac pregnancy and tips for how to stay healthy, getting glutened when pregnant, weaning a child at risk of coeliac disease and how to handle cross contamination when you are the coeliac parent to a (hopefully) non-coeliac child.  
    Before the interview, Laura and Sarah talk about gluten free afternoon tea and pastries in London, a gluten free baking course in Devon, katsu curry, our VERY different opinions about gluten free Christmas products being launched so early and the variety of coeliac symptoms that people can experience.

    Before the interview, Laura and Sarah talk about gluten free travel (especially Italy and Mexico), whether gluten is a dating deal breaker, tips for dating when you are coeliac and why you should kick those gluten free haters to the curb.

So real, relatable and fun!

I love this podcast- it’s not preachy, they don’t assume you’re making everything yourself from scratch, it’s just realistic. They tell you plenty about the ready made stuff as well as recommending recipe blogs, books etc. It’s also very informative, and they have some great guests. Love it!
