After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

One Dietician said, ...cookbook that does the impossible!

If you read the labels on the gluten-free prepared foods available, you’ll discover they’re loaded with starch, which breaks down into sugar. Eating a lot of those prepared foods can be too much for someone at risk for weight-gain or Diabetes. And as you may know, types 1 Diabetics often also have celiac disease.

Fun with 
Gluten-free/Low Glycemic Food What’s that answer? Baking with low-glycemic flours, such as Almond meal, can help. If someone has tree-nut allergies, there are seed-flour alternatives as well. Using vegetables instead of pasta or rice as a base for your favorites, such as spaghetti, stroganoff, and curry.

What about bread? Gluten-free breads are loaded with starch, unless you make your own with nut and seed flours.

How do you accomplish all this? With Debbie Johnson’s new electronic (also available in print) cookbook.

All recipes are:

  • Gluten-free without weight-gain
  • 100% gluten free and low glycemic
  • Diabetic Friendly
  • No refined sugars, only fruit
  • Allergies covered for Most recipes
    • Tree Nuts
    • Dairy
    • Corn
    • Soy (except Bragg Liquid Aminos)
  • Great Digestion Combinations
  • Almost every ingredient is a “healing food” according to some books
  • Travel snacks and how to eat in restaurants
  • 100% Great Flavor, gourmet and comfort-food recipes

Since the recipes are low-glycemic, cooks and family should not gain weight if eating this food exclusively.

Debbie Johnson, best-selling author of Think Yourself Thin and Fun with GF/LG Food, also wrote a "Natural Recipe" Column for The Edge Life Magazine. These recipes came about due to Debbie's own personal health challenges. She learned to make them delicious from many chefs over the years and herself was a chef at the Peppermill Soup Kitchen in Encinitas, California. She was also executive chef for her own gluten-free, diabetic-friendly gourmet restaurant, The Golden Chalice, using her own recipes exclusively.

Recipes from Debbie’s cookbook featured in four page layout in fall, 2011 edition of Pathways Magazine (national chiropractic parenting, health magazine).
