    I'd also check liquid soaps (especially some of the more eco-friendly ones, oddly), and if you're female you need to research your make-up. Many lipsticks and foundations have wheat in, as do some...

    Lamb and coriander/cilantro meatballs is a favourite, too. Put 500g of minced/ground lamb in either a food processor or a bowl, add a finely chopped onion, a couple of cloves of crushed garlic,...

    I tend to feel best with about 50 -65% fat per day, but it does vary. You'll need to experiment and also find out which fat helps you the most! Not much help, I guess, other than to try...
