Need A gluten-free Vegan Cookbook
0

7 posts in this topic

My dd wants to buy a gluten free/vegan cook book. She is 18 and a beginner at cooking. What is your favorite, with fairly easy recipes? Thanks in advance! ;)

She made gluten-free/v pizza with BRM pizza crust mix, so I think she can tackle some recipes. And great looking cupcakes too, better than the ones I made <_< (I premixed the dry ingredients, then took them to her apt and she made them without any over the phone help!).

A few websites and books to look at:

Book of Yum

Wheatless & Meatless

Gluten-Free Vegan Family

And this is a site with great gluten-free recipes, as well as SOME vegan and vegetarian recipes (but she does also use meat and animal products from time to time) : Gluten Free Goddess

Books - I own Flying Apron's Gluten-free & Vegan Baking Book (uses honey in some recipes, so not true vegan) but it does have some good recipes. A few on my "To Buy" list are : The Gluten-Free Vegan: 150 Delicious Gluten-Free, Animal-Free Recipes by Susan O'Brian, and The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen: Delicious and Nutritious Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Dishes by Donna Klein.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Thanks for your reply. We've tried lots of Karina's recipes...all good! She wants a cookbook rather than a website. Thanks for posting your book titles. We just sub agave nectar for the honey. She is looking at veganomicon (not sure if its gluten-free) but she wants other peoples opinions before she buys one. THANKS! I will pass them on to her.

Check it out

One of the nice things about vegan cookbooks is they can be pretty easy (as far as non-baked items anyway) to sub out gluten containing items. Rice noodles trade in easy for "normal", make sure to use a gluten free soy sauce, use sweet rice flour to dredge tofu to panfry, and stay away from seitan etc. The How It All Vegan books (even as a meat eater, I go to these a LOT) and the Veginomicon are great. Not a straight 1 to 1 trade out, but if she want's to try these books they ARE tasty! (And have a pretty good grasp on the more "exotic" grains to start playing with as a gluten free cook.)

Just make sure she knows to read every label carefully and it because a pretty easy job to switch out some of the ingredients that need to be skipped with safer alternatives.

hey guys I'm definitely a newbie to this stuff and need a little bit of help.  I'm trying to get more healthy in my life and my family's life but it's been tough.  I'm looking for a healthy or vegan cookbook and I found this site http://www.squidoo.com/the-best-recipe-cookbook-ever-top-vegetarian-vegan-healthy-new-cookbook and I think the practical paleo: a customized approach to health by diane sanfillipo is something that i'm really interested in after reading some reviews.  I was hoping some of you guys might have some experience with the book or suggestions for me.  any help would be great!

Happy Herbivore is simple, vegan, and the majority of the recipes are either gluten-free already or easily made gluten-free.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
