  • She stopped eating wheat and gluten when she was 16 after realising it didn’t agree with her
  • I find out that Tara has to eliminate gluten, wheat, dairy, aubergine and although not a vegan pretty much follows a vegan diet to help heal her gut
  • She tells me about her dietary experiments on herself to figure out what’s wrong with her
  • She tells me about finally sorting out her diet fixed her eczema, hay fever and hives
  • She tells me how she started experimenting with her bread maker and gluten free bread making

Chocolate Recipe Book: want the first chapter free??
