A Simple, Sane, Dietician-Approved Program In Eating Your Way Back to Health
Author: Marlisa Brown
Publisher: Demos Medical Publishing
Gluten intolerance is the inability to properly digest wheat, rye, and barley. One of the benefits of recent extensive research into diet has been the identification of this pervasive food ingredient as a contributor to a myriad of health problems, from diabetes and arthritis to cancer and digestive difficulties. "Gluten-Free, Hassle Free" makes it easy to begin gluten-free eating, cooking, and living. Structured around a three-step process -- Making the Change; Making Gluten-Free Living Simple; and Making Your Life Healthy, Happy, and Uncomplicated -- the book offers expert guidance on the practical and emotional aspects of the new lifestyle, from reading labels and stocking a gluten-free kitchen to dining out without stress, handling feelings of anger and frustration
'I hope that first and foremost this book is just a series of recipes that you can use for every day cooking; be it for a special occasion or a simple family supper. It's the things I cook and the little twists that I add that make my life easier and hopefully tastier; it just happens to be gluten free.' In her debut cookbook, Jane Devonshire presents 100 delicious recipes guaranteed to make you feel good, and wow family and friends. In chapters such as nibbles and small dishes or dinner and food for guests, Jane offers recipes from soups and dips to casseroles, arancini and delicious salads. Desserts include Chinese-style caramelized pineapple and a much-loved classic of steamed sponge pudding, while Jane also includes a chapter on baking (notoriously tricky for those on a gluten-free diet), from brownies to muffins and everything in between. Published to coincide with their 50th anniversary, the recipes are gluten-free and tested by Coeliac UK. Beautiful photography by Mike Cooper appears throughout.
EASY-TO-MAKE GLUTEN-FREE RECIPES THAT SATISFY EVEN the MOST FINICKY EATERS “This book is a wonderful addition to the increasing variety of resources available to people who require a gluten-free diet. It is easy to read and the content is superb!” Peter H.R. Green, M.D., Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University “When you need a meal and don't have much time or energy, you're sure to find something you can pull off-and smile while you're doing it.” -Ann Whelan, Editor/Publisher of Gluten-Free Living “Connie once again shows us that the gluten-free diet is not restrictive but merely a variety of delicious substitutions.” -Elaine Monarch, Founder/Executive Director, Celiac Disease Foundation Put away the complicated cooking gadgets: a wheat- and gluten-free diet for your kids just got easier! All the recipes in this completely revised second edition are simple to make for busy parents on the go, and they conform to new gluten-free guidelines.

This is the food that Jane cooks at home – stress free with easily available ingredients. Food that families can enjoy, and packed full of recipes which can be on the table for quick for mid-week dinners (as well as those that show your inner masterchef!). From three-cheese mushroom lasagne to spiced fried cauliflower with a green siracha salsa, these mouth-watering recipes are easily accessible for anyone who has to live with Coeliac or gluten intolerances. And why meat free as well as gluten free? Jane's a busy mum, and whatever she cooks have to be eaten by all in her house. With her son diagnosed as Coeliac, it was natural that gluten-free would become the norm in the Devonshire household, and when her daughter turned veggie a few years ago, Jane wanted to serve good, hearty meals that the rest of the family wouldn't complain about, or feel short-changed by. In this book, Jane shares her family's favourite dishes, helping busy feeders everywhere keep the crowds happy.
Living Gluten-Free For Dummies, like all For Dummies books, is divided up so you don't have to read it all at once, or even front to back, if you don't want to. You can skip from B to R to A and even reread B if you want to. You can read it sideways and standing on your head if you'd like; all you have to do is find a section you're interested in and dig in (how's that for liberating?). I suggest you peruse the Table of Contents and see whether any particular chapter or subject really floats your boat, and start there. Or you can flip through the book and see whether any of the headings catch your interest. If you're new to the gluten-free lifestyle and have tons of questions, you're probably best off starting at Chapter 1 and working your way through most of the book in order. If you've been gluten-free for years, do yourself a favor and take a look at Chapter 4. You may be surprised at some of the foods that are allowed on the gluten-free diet that used to be considered no-nos. You may find this chapter opens a lot of cupboard doors that you once thought were closed!
