Hi everyone. I'm new to the gluten-free lifestyle, about 2 weeks in. I've done what I believe most people do when first going gluten-free--search for alternatives to the baked goods we love. I'm discovering however that this isn't always a good idea. I have a weight problem and although the gluten-free bagels are delicious, at 9 grams of fat each they aren't feasible.
So my question to you is this: can anyone recommend good Low Fat Gluten Free cookbooks? Please keep in mind that I'm not much of a cook nor do I feel like it (my rheumatic symptoms haven't subsided yet) most of the time.
Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I was NOT diagnosed with Celiac disease but have come to the conclusion, with the help of two of my doctors (my rheumatologist and chiropractor), that something I've been eating is causing weird, roaming rheumatic symptoms in joints that I do not have RA. So we're thinking gluten sensitivity. Also I have a few friends who have experienced the same symptoms and going gluten-free helped them tremendously. So here I am.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Again, I really have to watch my weight (these days I'm watching it go up and up even more!) so LF and gluten-free are the keys.
Thanks so much.

I am 39 years old, married with 10 furry children. I work full time and have had rheumatoid arthritis for 25 years. Just recently went gluten-free in an attempt to alleviate RA issues, stomach problems and moodiness
