Gut Feeling Week Offers

14 May

It’s been a fantastic start to Gut Feeling week, with Facebook and Twitter being a hive of activity.  Lots of people are doing great things to help raise awareness and it is brilliant to see.  Yesterday I published a Gut Feeling week post aimed at non-coeliacs and encouraged people to share the post to their Facebook and Twitter timelines.  There were lots of shares and retweets and thanks to everyone who shared.  I’ve also enjoyed (if that is the right word) reading people’s diagnosis stories.  It’s difficult sharing something so personal, and thanks to everyone who has shared their stories.  It’s noticeable how many of us have had so many similar experiences, and it’s great to know we are not alone.

Coeliac Awareness Week is also a great time to get your hands on some special offers on free from products.  Here is a round up of some of the offers that are out there, with a focus on some local ones:

LoveLactoseFreeLife

Love Lactose Free Life:

Love Lactose Free life offer a range of gluten and dairy free products such as chocolate and recently goodies from Knead Bakery.  The company is run by Emma-Louise Hutchinson who is based in East Prawle in Devon.  Emma has reduced all the prices on her website by 10% for the week, see the website for more details.

Mark&Julie

Plymouth Greengrocer:

Plymouth Greengrocer are also offering 10% off their gluten free products for Gut Feeling week.  There is a fantastic range of gluten free products including pasties, pies and cakes mainly from local suppliers.  If you live in Plymouth and haven’t yet made a visit, I can highly recommend it.  The offer is also available via their website using the voucher code Aware10 (please note deliveries are within the Plymouth area only.

BakedToTaste

Baked to Taste

Another Devon company, based in Honiton.  I cannot speak highly enough of these products and I have eaten my way through a lot of these pasties and pies since being diagnosed!  They also offer vegetarian choices and cakes too.  Luckily for those of us in Plymouth, they are available to buy at Plymouth Greengrocer.  For those of you further away you can buy on-line at www.bakedtotaste.co.uk and this week you can get 10% off when ordering using the code CAW2013.

Honeybuns Bakery

Not a Devon company, but this company is based in nearby Dorset and offers some great gluten free cakes and biscuits.  You can use the the discount code GUTFEEL to get 10% off at their on-line shop.  These products are very popular amongst the gluten free community and well worth a try if you haven’t already.

Other Offers

Tesco are running a 3 for 2 offer on their gluten free products this week.  This includes the extremely popular gluten free wraps from Warburtons Newburn Bakehouse if you’ve not tried them yet.  They are delicious.  Le Bistro Pierre, who have recently opened in Plymouth Royal William Yard, are offering a free glass of wine to those ordering off the gluten free menu during Gut Feeling week.  See the links below for some other great offers:
