Okay guys, I thought something needed to go here, and I have to say that my all time favorite book about celiac disease is Danna Korn's book "Wheat Free, Worry Free".

What is the best book about Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance that you have read??

The book "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly M.D. and Ron Hoggan M.A. is EXCELLENT!

There is a new book comming out this spring called "A personal touch on Celiac Disease", a few of us on this message board have put stories and recipes in it so you should look for it when it comes out!

the best (ok, the only one, but it's extremely good) book i ever read on wheat intolerance/wheat allergy is "Against the Grain," by Jax Peters Lowell. I've probably read through the entire thing 4 or 5 times, and it is great!! Not only does it have tons of information, tips, & recipes, ...it is HILARIOUS! Reading it makes me feel like maybe i'm not the biggest weirdo for having to dissect my food in front of everyone at a dinner party. :) I swear, any celiac/wheat intolerant person who reads this will finally be able to laugh out loud at all the funny/eccentric things (i.e. eating caviar w/ a spoon, bringing your own rice pasta to Italian restaurants) that one tends to go through with gluten/wheat intolerance. Especially after you've just been diagnosed (as I had), it's great to know that there's someone else out there who has the same annoying issues as i do (i.e. difficulty eating out at restaurants, dining with friends), and can offer some good advice on how to cope.

I enjoyed the humor in Against the Grain too but I think it is important to not that it was published quite a while ago so some of the nutritional information offered is no longer accurate.

I appreciated he down to earth approach for asking for what you need prepared the way you need it without apologizing for it. She is really good!!

"The Gluten Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg is also a very good book.

My husband and I used to eat out at least 4 nights a week. That was our lifestyle. I am adjusting to cooking my own food and eating at home. It is a major challenge but I am excited about it because I am already feeling soooo much better.

I need to add that this board is a real lifesaver! I love it. Thanks everyone for your knowledgeable support. It is great. The one thing I have learned very quickly is to not take other people's word for what I can and can't eat. I appreciate that frequently people post the website or book where they got their information so I can check it out for myself.

My attitude is that I am not giving up one thing that I don't have to but I am also not putting anything in my mouth that will rob me of my health. That means doing a lot of research and playing private detective about everything I eat but it is worth it.

I have to agree with Jessica that Bette Hagaman's Cookbooks are my favorites. It is good to have good info, but the recipies are what I enjoy. She certainly knows her stuff. My wife found a bunch of them on Ebay for a little less $$ as well. It is nice to save money when all the gluten-free flour is expensive out here.
