I’ve had a lingering cold and got desperate enough to start hitting up the cold & flu tablets. I happened to mention it in passing to my Mum. She said “you know some kinds have got gluten in them, don’t you….”. Um. I didn’t. I didn’t check – and it turned out the type I was taking had gluten in them. I felt a bit stupid as it’s kinda 101 to check everything first.

So this is not a very creative food post – but I thought I’d mention it in case anyone else has a cold, and like me – hadn’t thought that gluten may be lurking in cold and flu tablets.

Here’s a selection of warm and cosy things to ease the cold away.
