An entire generation was raised to believe that cooking meant opening a box, ripping off the plastic wrap, adding water, or popping it in the microwave. Gluten-Free Girl, with its gluten-free healthful approach, seeks to bring a love of eating back to our diets. Living gluten-free means having to give up traditional bread, beer, pasta, as well as the foods in which gluten likes to hide such as store-bought ice cream, chocolate bars, even nuts that might have been dusted with flour. However, Gluten-Free Girl shows readers how to say yes to the foods they can eat. Gluten-free foods are becoming more popular, according to The San Francisco Chronicle, which notes that an estimated three million Americans now suffer from celiac disease, the most severe form of gluten intolerance.
Among the increasing number of people with gluten sensitivities, this book speaks to them via an engaging and personal story. Gluten-Free Girl will appeal to anyone with celiac disease, or just those who want to eat well.
Award-winning blogger Shauna James Ahern became interested in healthy eating once she was diagnosed with celiac disease and went gluten-free. The author keeps a popular website, GlutenFreeGirl.com, where she receives thousands of hits a day. Currently, the Food Network is running promotional spots on the author and her website.
