Life just got a little bit easier

Following the lead of waitrose, M&S have started selling gluten free sandwiches - Hurrrah!

Their gluten free range, in the green packaging, also includes cakes and bread, but sandwiches are a welcome arrival as a quick lunch to grab on the run. At the moment it looks like they're limited to ham or egg, but hopefully as they get more popular they'll sell a wider range.

There is obviously a critical mass of gluten free individuals out there for these major supermarkets to be extending their ranges, as people get tuned into the benefits of going gluten free. Even if you don't have a gluten allergy or intolerance, it's good to have a few wheat free days a week anyway as modern wheat can be very irritating to the gut.

It also has a sleep inducing effect, hence the post pasta drowsiness, so having a gluten free sandwich for lunch, rather than a regular one, may reduce your need for post lunch caffeine.

Whilst I'm hoping for some healthier fillings in future, I'm a firm believer in voting with my feet so I'll be picking up a gluten free sarnie for my lunch tomorrow and hope some of you will do the same!
