From now on, a gluten-free diet doesn't have to mean taste-free, nutrition-free, and convenience-free. Yes, you must avoid a host of foods containing wheat, barley, rye, and even most oats. But nutritionist and gluten-free-diet researcher Tricia Thompson has assembled an army of food choices for you that are not just gluten free but also tasty and packed with nutrientsl
The Gluten-Free Nutrition Guide is filled with new gluten-free eating strategies, the latest research, and dozens of tips on living better with celiac disease. Inside you will find:
- Fifty delicious gluten-free recipes, many from noted celiac disease experts.
- Advice for living with and controlling celiac disease.
- Information on safe and delicious foods that boost your fiber intake.
- The best ways to avoid the common pitfalls of a gluten-free diet, such as high fat intake and low intakes of B vitamins, iron, and calcium.
“The main reason I wrote this book was to be helpful. Hopefully, this book accomplishes two things: first, provides you with the information you need to eat a healthy gluten-free diet, and second, provides you with the necessary research and evidenced based information to help clear up confusion about the gluten-free diet. Included in this book is the best available scientific information; the same information available to physicians and dietitians. My purpose is to present information to you that allows you to make your own decisions. I wanted to avoid writing a book that merely told you what you should and should not eat. With a little thought, the gluten-free diet can be very healthful and not at all stressful to follow.” (Excerpted from The Gluten-Free Nutrition Guide)
