    Hi all,
    Please help. I've recently found that I need to go Gluten free and I don't have a clue which breads, cereals and weights I can use as Healthy Extras. Please and thank you :)

    Dietary Special Ciabatta Rolls tend to be my stock bread (or 1 slice of Genius bread)

    Apparently if you can't eat gluten you can use 35g of any gluten free cereal (I don't because they all taste rubbish IMHO)

    4 plain rice cakes

    I tend to have pistachio nuts if I don't have the bread (28)

    The slimming world online diary has several gluten free option for your healthy extras - far more than the book

    Thank you so much. Do you know if Scott's porridge oats are GF? And is there a GF bread that I can have two slices of? I know it's in my head but I'd think I haven't eaten enough if I only are 1 slice haha. Thank you :)

    There is one, but I didn't like the taste so I've forgotten it, just looked it up the glutafin 29g slices you can have 2

    Can also have 2 of the dietary special slices out of the loaf

    Thank you so much. It's all new to me and I'm so confused with it all. Can I get these breads from Asda and Morrisons? Sorry to be a pest..

    The dietary special ones you can - the glutafin ones I don't think you can (have you been diagnosed with coeliacs? if so you can get glutafin ones on prescription - or juvela)

    Glutafin (and juvela) do do free sample boxes too for you to try - I'm too new to post a link - which have loads of rolls, bread, pasta for you to try

    Thank you for all your help. I was diagnosed with Psoriatic disease. An auto immune inflammatory arthritis. I was recommended to go GF as it help heal the gut Etc. I guess it couldn't make me any worse. It's just trying to fit it in nicely with SW.

    Going gluten free is a complete pain to start off with, and the subsitutes aren't as nice as the gluten free ones but you do get used to it. I haven't found combining it with slimming world creates much problems (but I'd been GF for 4 years before doing SW)

    Asda sells a gluten and wheat-free multigrain wrap in their B Free range which can be used as a B choice. In addition, both Asda and Warburton make gluten and wheat-free breads but I'm not sure if they are an official B choice or a suitable tweak. If you go to group, your C should be able to advise, or you can get the information from the SW website.
