The Gluten Free Diet
Being diagnosed with a gluten intolerance or just knowing yourself that some food types are simply out of bounds due to the discomfort it causes, is not as easy to overcome as it would seem. Learning about different food types, understanding what works and what doesn’t, and finding substitutes for foods you’ve eaten your whole life can be a real challenge.
This recipe book is here to help! The first section gives a fantastic overview of some of the issues with having a gluten-free diet with advice on what to look out for and what things will need to change. It is written in a reader-friendly manner, with plenty of top tips and ideas to make the transition as easy as possible.
The struggle for many is accepting the change. With the help of this book, you can see that by making slight adjustments to the way in which you view food, you can be gluten-free in no time and get on with your life and enjoying food.
In many respects the key is changing what you perceive to make up a normal meal and in this book, there are plenty of ideas for you to sink your teeth into.
A lot of these recipes are classic dishes, tweaked with the gluten-free diner in mind. There are some more obvious substitutions whilst others will take you by surprise. Some of these include:
• Worry Free White Chocolate Croissants
• Breakfast Pizza
• Ploughman’s Light Lunch
• Avocado, Roast Chicken and Bean Sprout Salad
• Caribbean Chicken Curry Roti
• Spinach, Pomegranate and Walnut Salad
• Italian Coffee Cake
• Mama’s Rice Pudding
• Caramel Slice
There are recipes from all categories – breakfasts, starters, mains and desserts. This is a great book to get an overview of the possibilities of gluten-free with a view to change how you think about your condition.
From the author
It was years before I realised that I was gluten intolerant. I would often feel bloated and uncomfortable after meals, and eating soon became extremely unenjoyable. It was only after I spoke to some friends who had been to their doctors with similar symptoms, that I realised I was gluten intolerant. Although not severe, I needed to make changes to my diet, and fast.
As a lover of cooking and eating, making this jump was massive. Although my case is mild and I can still eat certain quantities of gluten in my diet, I began a mission to compile a series of recipes and relevant information for anyone needing to make these changes.
Now it is no problem at all to cook gluten-free, and in fact my family are regularly unaware that many of the dishes I cook are! Having a handy book like this however would have saved me a lot of time and effort (not to mention a poorly tummy!).
I do hope you enjoy my book and that it has made life easier for you. Remember, it is not as daunting as it may seem at first, you just need a fresh perspective.
If you liked my book, please share it with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter, and check out my other cookbooks on Amazon!
Yours in Gluten-free,
