Morning Coffee Smoothie

       I know I'm not the only one who really, seriously loves coffee. Like really. My adoration started when I was living in Australia, working as a restaurant supervisor and pretty much living on coffee. It was so good. The coffee over there hit all the senses so easily, it was such good quality and so damn tasty! And I've never looked back.

       As much as I enjoy my piping hot cups of coffee, I'm very aware that coffee is not the best thing to put in a body. It is a dehydrator, incredibly acidic and gives your body false energy that you can quite easily get from eating lots of delicious, natural, plant based foods. BUT. Coffee is coffee. If you're also a coffee lover like me, you'll know exactly what I mean when I say cutting coffee out is far too extreme for my liking.  I'm very happy with my diet otherwise so coffee is definitely my daily indulgence!

I've jotted down a quick list of things to check for gluten in your kitchen; you'll be surprised how many items contain it! 
My biggest piece of advice is to ALWAYS read the full ingredients list on everything and ALWAYS look for the 'gluten free' logo on packets of food...
