Our daughter was diagnosed as a strong possible Celiac (Coeliac) in the beginning of April. Going gluten free is not an easy thing, no matter where you are in the world. For us here in Dubai it was a bit harder due to the way the health system works. If you are not with a good doctor you may find yourself – like us – without being given vital information. We were simply just given our diagnosis and sent on our merry way. I say we, because even though it’s our daughter who is the Celiac, as she is just two it’s really not up to her to deal with any of it. We had to take it on as a family! As a stay-at-home-mum, it has been mainly me doing the research, the shopping and the searching etc. Our lives have changed 100% since the diagnosis, and yet I can’t even remember what it was like before. Being gluten free has become a way of life. Read more

Over the next few months you will no doubt find yourself visiting a variety of supermarkets as you may like the bread from one supermarket and the meat from another. Or you will also soon discover that the stock ordering system in Dubai is a bit hit or miss and your local supermarket that you always got a certain cereal from may run out for months – miraculously re-appearing months later.
In addition if you like to have your bacon sandwich on a Friday morning you will need to shop at the supermarkets which have a dedicated ‘Pork Section‘ and that might not be your local supermarket. Chains which do have pork sections include include Spinneys, Waitrose, Choithrams and Park’n’Shop. These supermarkets are very popular with western expats but can be quite expensive so for your weekly bulk shopping try Carrefour, Union Co-Op, Lu’Lu and Geant. Read more
