Not sure what to get a family member or friend who seems like they have everything? We think a food-filled hamper is a failsafe gift that’s just as fun to give as it is to receive.
The sum of a hamper is more than its parts. If you have ever been gifted one you’ll know the excitement that comes from unwrapping the box to discover all the little treats inside and then enjoying them individually over the year.
Whether you stick to a gluten-free diet or you’re cooking for someone who does, a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is actually easier than you think to make “free-from”.
There’s a lot involved in cooking a traditional Christmas roast so you don’t want to be cooking lots of different alternatives for your gluten-free guests – and you really don’t have to. Be safe in the knowledge that all guests can tuck into all dishes with just a few easy tweaks to your normal recipes.
The world number one tennis player, Serbia's Novak Djokovic, has been following a Gluten Free diet since 2011. This diet change came about as a result of an underwhelming 2010 season, where he failed to win a Grand Slam and felt lethargic and mentally drained in many of his big matches.
It was on Davis Cup duty in 2010 where Novak sat down and had a consultation with Dr Igor Cetojevic, a nutritionist and fellow Serb.

There are few who would deny the presence of a higher power. A God by many different names. Historically it must have been hard for him to get around… but now he has the web… !
As a child I tried to pull off deals with God ‘ just sort such and such …. and I promise ….. ‘.
They mostly didn’t work .
