Today I’ve tried the Chickn Gyros Pitta (which includes chips and salad) and Baklava for dessert from What the Pitta.
Okay, I know this looks like it’s been dropped but it was only folded loosely and upon picking it up, my lack of co-ordination (because I’m Dyspraxic) did not help with that 😆
I really wanted to like this but I found the chickn to be a little too sweet. There was a dire lack of Tsziki dressing, which I was really disappointed by. I ended up adding lots of mayo and some gherkins instead, as it was the best I could do.
The Baklava was the best I have ever eaten, anywhere, which was a wonderful surprise!
As you probably know I ‘don’t do cooking’ because Im too neurodiverse to function…in the kitchen for very long. So every ingredient here is incredibly simple to ‘cook’ and combine to make something tasty.
Everything here is dairy and gluten free apart from Amy’s Kitchen Rice Mac and Cheese which has dairy.

I’ve bought great gluten free pasta but I find making dairy-free cheese sauce (that I actually like) so faffy! I’m going to try using vegan cream cheese or vegan mayo instead with rice milk and nutrional yeast. Wish me luck!
I hope you’ve found this basic list of ingredients for takeaway favourites helpful. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.
Even if you have a vegetarian, gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet (mine is for ethical and food intolerance reasons), there are still so many things you can eat! So I thought I’d share my tiny fridge and stupidly large cupboard with you.

This Hydrating Core Lipshine from @elfcosmetics is the best tinted lipbalm I’ve used for a very longtime.
This stick is hydrating anyway but the adorable little heart in the middle gives even more hydration.
There are a good choice of colours but seeing as we are going into Autumn I chose this burgundy, bordering on burnt-orange shade called ‘Happy’. It looks warm and naturally flattering on darker skin tones or more vibrant and vampy on paler skin tones. These Lip Shines have a good depth of colour which is easily buildable.
This can get a bit messy and don’t expect it to dry down but it’s not sticky and doesn’t have a funky smell or flavour so I love it!
Revolution Highlighter Reloaded in Raise The Bar, is like applying sunshine to your skin.
I’ve never before
a) Used a highlighter which looks like I am so naturally radiant
b) Found one which matches my cool, olive skin properly
c) Found a powder one which blends really well and isn’t drying
This is amazing!
Here I’m standing in front of a big window but on a very gloomy day and I’m not wearing any foundation or concealer JUST THE HIGHLIGHTER (photo makes me seem a little more warm toned than I actually am).
Because it includescool – almost green – tones it reduces the appearance of slight red patches too!
