I checked out a book today by Jax Peter Lowell call against the grain. It seemed like a good book, I was wondering if anyone has read it and if you would recommend it. I saw a quote on the back cover that I thought was great.....


Isn't it ironic that the french word for bread is the english word for pain?

How profound :lol:

Somewhere around here is an ongoing saga concerning this author and her book. Only say nice things about her book or she'll sue you too. ;)

I can tell you quite a few people wouldn't recommend that book b/c they feel the some of the information in it is not accurate. You can do a search in the forums for the book by typing +against+the+grain in the search box. You can then read the posts individuals have made concerning the book. I would say the most recommended book on this forum is "wheat free, worry free" by danna korn. You can order or buy it just about anywhere, including on amazon.

That is funny about the word "pain" too :) I took french for several years and never really thought about it. I have noticed wheat in another language is ble.... makes me think "bleh!" :lol:

Even better that the world for wheat gluten (according to macrobiotics) is "seitan" pronounced Satan - OR that one French word for wheat is "ble" which is kind of how it makes me feel - BLEH! :P

Most of my comments on the Gluten Free Bible apply to Against the Grain, as well. And many things are worse in that book than in her updated version--for example, her stance on cross-contamination. I'm going to restrain myself from saying any more than "I don't like it."

Yes, I had thought the same way before about ble (imagine an accent aigu over the e because I'm not going to bother to paste one in here...)
