Netflix and Chill: Gluten and Dairy Free Style

Since moving house, I’ve been attempting to stay in much more- we finally have a decent size living room to entertain and I don’t have to fret about what’s on the restaurant menu! One of the hardest things I find as gluten free and dairy free is just things to snack on that are also reasonably healthy! I get so bored of ready salted crisps! Today I thought I’d share with you all about how I chill at home gluten and dairy-free style!


What I Watch

Gilmore Girls: ok, confession time: I never watched Gilmore Girls the first time around! The revival came on and I clicked out of mild curiosity. One episode later, I was hooked! I think it’s really rare to find a TV show these days that doesn’t focus solely on romantic relationships and it is pure escapism.

Pretty Little Liars: Another show I began watching by chance! I started at series 5 because I’m impatient meaning I don’t know who half the characters are! I need to go back to series 1!

Health Documentaries I also went through a phase of watching health documentaries on Netflix. If you’re into juicing, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead is amazing (a man manages to come off steroids after juicing!) I also love Forks over Knives and Hungry for Change. There’s a real movement to document health that doesn’t seem to have quite translated in the UK yet.


Movie Snacks

For snacking, I try to recreate the usual snacks; free-from style. My first is homemade pizza. Sometimes we’ll order from Zizzi’s as a treat (since they do gluten free pizza with dairy free cheese) which is amazing! Otherwise, gluten free bases with plenty of toppings with goats cheese or regular dairy free cheese does the trick! (I learnt I could tolerate goat’s cheese about six months ago but before that I used  MozzaRisella– which is also what Zizzi use on their vegan pizzas! It’s fab for pizzas!) I also make my

I also make my gluten free chicken goujon recipe– which is exactly like the chicken dippers Pizza Hut do! (well, I think so anyway!)

For popcorn, the lovely folks at Metcalfe’s sent me some of their new skinny range to snack on during my Netflix night! Most popcorn tends to have dairy in, so I was excited to see I could have four flavours: cinema sweet, salt, sweet and salty and maple bacon! These came in small trial bags too which were so so handy (I may have sneaked a few in my bag when we went to see Beauty and the Beast the following week)

Not only are they free-from, but they’re also really low in calories too. So if you’re looking for a sweet but healthy snack then this might be for you! The salt flavour are the most virtuous of the 3- only containing a handful ingredients.

Free From Tiple

I don’t drink very often- so I tend to make a yummy hot drink- such as my turmeric hot mylk. However, I will sometimes buy Gluten Free Peroni- since my husband loves it too and Crabbie’s ginger beer- which is also gluten free! The rasberry one is particularly yummy!


Competition time–  


Have your very own ‘free from’ Netflix and Chill and win a  huge box full of Metcalfe’s skinny popcorn ‘Cinema Sweet’ (24 packets)  Perfect  for a night in front of the telly and they’re gluten and dairy free too!

    I was a Gilmore Girls fan the first time the program aired and I love re-watching things I’ve enjoyed (I know re-watching the same programs/films annoys a lot of people) but re-watching is one of my guilty pleasures πŸ™‚ I hate getting into something mid series, I always have to go back to the beginning. And great series are best enjoyed with great snacks, classic popcorn, chocolate (Moo free original is perfect) and a nice cold drink.
