Are There Any Books You Would Recommend?

A family friend who is a Celiac told me to read Against the Grain. I'm thinking though, could I learn anything from these books that I don't learn here on celiac.com?

Are there any books you would recommend?

I have the book,

Wheat-Free Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Living

by Danna Korn

This book is very informative and basically covers everything to do with celiac disease. Although there is a lot of information that I already knew (from the internet, doctor, nutritionist) in the book, there was a ton of information that I didn't know. I enjoyed it anyway!

I've heard of the book Against the Grain but I haven't read it.

After I found this website and wanting to know if I also had this problem, I read two books - "A Personal Touch On....Celiac Disease" and "Gluten-Free Diet - A Comprehensive Resource Guid"

The first book is a compilation of different persons experiences with Celiac Disease and how they found out they had it , what their lives were like before they were diagnosed, the problems they had just to get diagnosed and how their lives have improved since going gluten-free. An excellent book and clearly showed how no two peoples symptoms are the same which is the very reason its so difficult to diagnose. It gave me the fortitude I needed to continue to fight for better answers from the medical profession than their normal platitudes and helped me realize that these same drs should not be dismissing me because my symptoms were not the "classic" symptoms. I'd recommend this book to everyone who has questions about celiac disease.

The second book is a cross reference to ingredients in most foods and shows how gluten can be hidden in the normal day-to-day foods that we eat. And it also has a list of all companies that manufacture gluten-free products and how to reach them - (addresses, web-sites, products they offer, etc). I use it like a bible when I have questions about what's in that product I'm purchasing. Unfortunately, its too big to stick in my pocket-book which is a real-downer when food shopping!

Check them out! and it'll help you understand the needs of your friend.

I have Against the Grain, Wheat Free-Worry Free, and A Personal Touch on...Celiac Disease. All of them are good books and worth having on hand. I like Wheat Free-Worry Free the best for information of those three. Against the Grain is a good guide book to have on hand for gluten free living. But my recommendation if you want to learn more about the negative affects of gluten is Dangerous Grains by James Braly and Ron Hoggan. It gets really into detail about everyting that gluten does in our bodies and why cutting gluten is a good idea, even if you don't have celiac disease or an intolerance.

God bless,

Mariann

I read Dangerous Grains. If you assume the author is only half right, it's enough to scare he bejeezes out of you.

I read Dangerous Grains and I thought it was great. He explains things so you really understand. I also like Wheat Free, Worry Free.

I would recommend the book "Gluten-Free Diet" by Shelley Case. It has a lot of useful information including info. on food labeling, meal planning, tips for cooking, a directory of gluten free products and companies, etc. It helped me a lot in the beginning.

Hi, I'm Pastor Dave's wife. I am not gluten free, but I do lots of cooking for a very speicial gluten-free person! I would recommend Bette Hagman's cook books. They are filled with wonderful recipies that are as good as (or better than) gluten filled recipies. (I taste both sides and many of the gluten free really are better :rolleyes: .) Her books also have a lot of scientific reasons for the combinations of gluten free grains and the addition of extra protein to your baking. She has been a celiac for years and uses her introductions to the books for lots of helpful advice. She also adds simple gluten-free recipies in the back that you don't need any special ingredients for - like if someone asks you what they can make for dessert when you come over. Anyway, for an all over educational and helpful book, I think hers are the tops!
