I was lucky to find this pizza from @fireaway_mcr_fallowfield one of the few places in Manchester where you can order a gluten free base with vegan cheese (for extra dosh).
There’s lots of pre-made options but if you go down the ‘create your own’ route you get to choose from lots of toppings.
I learned that if you type the food you want into Deliveroo, say ‘pizza’ and you click on the number of that food available (rather than the names of the actual eateries), you can the specify lots of options, such as ‘dietary’ needs. Bingo!
The Body Shop Lotion-To-Oil from their avocado range is a bit of an odd one because it has the consistency of a moisturiser, even after you have applied it but later on, it does feel like you have layered up with a light moisturiser and a body oil.
Over the summer me and the Bloke have used this on incredibly dry skin, as an After-sun replacement, I’ve used it on my face (having a fan on all night is way harsh) and even on my hair as a leave-in conditioner!
It has such a lovely, fresh scent and isn’t greasy at all.
The Build Your Own bowl for a tenner, from The Green Lab in Manchesters’ Northern Quarter is the tastiest and most filling bowl of vegetarian salad/meze/tapas I have ever bought. It was two layers deep, and it was a big bowl!
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.
I love sushi but was finding it hard to get interesting, vegetarian sushi etc. delivered to East-Central Manchester, until I found Honi Sushi on Deliveroo. They are a London sushi restaurant who have now branched out, up North.
Sea Salted Edamame (they come in the pods so you bite the ends off and squeeze out the beans, a nice thing to occupy yourself with when watching trashy TV), with Spicy Sauce (one little taste made my whole head feel like a volcano!)
Avocado Roll x6
Vegetable Special Roll x 5
Strawberry Cheesecake Mochi (little, squishy balls of heaven)
This is the freshest and most creative veggie sushi I’ve eaten for a long time!
Honi Sushi has had 15% off its entire menu for a while now, which I’m glad about as I hate paying restaurant prices for takeaway (when there is also a minimum order price and delivery charge).
I also recommend Sake, 4 Ashton Rd, Droylesden, Mcr
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.
Top (left to right) Nairn’s Whole Grain (gf) Crackers, Momasa Lemon and Peppercorn tortilla chips, Biona Fruit Bears, Kind Dark Choc, Nuts & Sea Salt, Pulsin Brownie Peanut & Choc Chip.
Middle Asda Sesame Oil, Felippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wicked Kitchen Garlic and Herb Nooch (nutritional yeast which gives things a cheesy taste like mild Parmesan), Nice and Easy Cheese Flavour Sauce Mix, Amy’s Kitchen Tomato Soup, Amy’s Kitchen Lentil Soup, Amoy Rice Noodles.
Bottom Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Le Conserve Detla Nonna Green (vegan) Pesto, Nice and Easy Chickpea and Vegetable Curry, Garlic cloves (I prefer garlic purée in a tube lol), Tilda Microwave Mushroom Rice, Morrison’s Hot Paprika, Ground Black Pepper.
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!
