Being a diagnosed celiac doesn’t allow for “a little bit of gluten” or just a dash for thickening or anything of that nature. They key to my health and happiness is being 100% gluten-free all the time. Being gluten-free as long as I have makes this easy as I have reorganized my life and educated myself enough on ingredients so as to not miss any little sneaky gluten that could make itself into my meal.
When I was about 13 my taste buds changed for the better. I suddenly found a huge love for fish, which before this my mother couldn’t pay me to eat. With this love for fish came a deep love for sushi. At this time I wasn’t diagnosed celiac so I would dump that soy sauce into my dish and go for it.
When I was diagnosed with celiac disease about 7 years ago (wow, has it already been 7 years?!) , there was a lot of adjusting to do. I had to learn so much and quickly. I was quite sad to find out soy sauce had wheat in it. How was I supposed to eat sushi without even a drop of soy sauce ever again? I will admit, at first I would cheat. Have just a teaspoon of soy sauce here and there if I really wanted it. The reaction of my body to such a tiny amount of gluten was not unnoticed though and eventually I had to give it up completely. I did find gluten free soy sauce eventually and although hard to bring with me every time I ate sushi, I did the best I could.
Recently I came across Little Soya’s gluten-free soy sauce. Little Soya’s gluten-free soy sauce comes in individual clear plastic fish dispensers. You just remove the green cap, squeeze as much or as little of the Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce into your sauce dish and go for it. The packaging of this soy sauce is brilliant and I can’t get enough of it. Super convenient and the cap screws back on if you don’t end up using the whole fish in one sitting.
With my busy schedule I never quite know when I will be eating out or not. I keep a couple Little Soya’s gluten-free soy sauce “fish” in my purse at all times. They also cut the sodium almost in half from other leading brands so you won’t get that salty bloating that I am sure many are used to. Convenience alone makes this product worth its weight in gold and the taste is an extra added bonus.
Living in Los Angeles I have delicious sushi at almost every corner. Now I can always be prepared. Thanks Little Soya!
