Living Without And/or Gluten Free Living

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with celiac disease a month ago and am thinking about subscribing to Living Without and/or Gluten Free Living magazine.

Does anyone read these? Are there a lot of recipes included in them? Would you recommend one over the other?

I had delayed food sensitivity testing done and am supposed to be avoiding quite a few foods. That and I'm contemplating going on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to heal my gut, since I'm still experiencing symptoms after being gluten free for over a month. So I thought Living Without might be a good choice.

Both magazines are kind of pricey, at $6-7 an issue, but I'm thinking it might be a good investment for at least a year, while I'm getting used to this whole process.

I've never read Gluten-Free Living, but I really like Living Without. It includes really great recipes and articles. I was actually just thinking I wish I had remembered to pick it up at Whole Foods yesterday...

Oh wow, I shop at Whole Foods a lot now. I checked for both of these magazines at Borders, but didn't find them. I never thought to check Whole Foods though, I'll do that next time I go. Thanks!

I had a subscription to Gluten free living. I recieved 2 issues out of the 4 I payed for, then after I got the second issue they sent me a card asking me to sign up for another 4 issues. The subscription was some where around $40 bucks and I can say it was so not worth it.

I tried to get my missing issues and they never got back to me.

I love living without, great mag.

I like Living Without very much. Good articles and always a bunch of recipes.

I pick it up at Whole Foods--I'm hoping the new issue is available this weekend.

I get Living Without and I love it!!! I've heard nothing but bad things about Gluten Free Living , though I have no personal experience with them.

I subscribe to both. Living Without is great. Gluten Free Living has some good articles but it has way more ads and less info than Living Without. If you can only get one, go with Living Without.

And yes, I have had to e-nag Gluten Free Living a time or two. OTOH, when Living Without screwed up and sent me two copies, they just told me to pass on the extra.

I get Living Without. It is cheaper if you subscribe to it rather than purchase in the stores. I've never heard of Gluten Free Living though until now. I also get Celiac.com's Scott-Free Newsletter. It has really good articles in it.
