Gluten Free Bible

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I was given the Gluten Free Bible. I like it and I realize that some of the info is old. Then I read some of the reviews on Amazon, some of them are less than glowing. Any opinions from here?

Also any recommendations besides Celiac for dummies which is next on my list.

I liked that book. She was so upbeat and "can do" about living gluten-free. That said, I'm not sure that all of what she proposes is practical or doable....but I still enjoyed reading it.

The other books I've read are "Living Gluten Free for Dummies" - that's a great "primer" about going gluten-free. I read "Dangerous Grains" - eye opening; The Gluten Connection - useful nutritional info; and "Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic" - everything you wanted to know about celiac disease. I enjoyed reading all of these and I got something different out of each book. Happy reading!

I need something that is going to help me prep for an everyday kitchen. I'm kind of stuck on what to have for lunches or snacks so far. Also my son for his school lunches this year.

Dawnsister,

The recipe section here has countless things to cook/prepare. Many are also children oriented. Check it out :D

Of all the books I mentioned, the "Dummies" book would help the most. Danna Korn (author) is the mom of a celiac kid. I think she also has another book about raising a celiac kid....but I haven't read that one.

I was just talking to someone about gluten-free lunches and snacks - I'll throw a few ideas out there.

gluten-free bagel/cream cheese

sandwich on gluten-free bread

apples with peanut butter

celery with peanut butter

deli meat "roll ups" (ham or turkey rolled around juliened veggies or cheese)

hummus with gluten-free crackers or veggies'

egg salad or tuna salad with gluten-free crackers

wraps (made with brown rice wraps)

gluten-free pasta salad

yogurt

string cheese

cut up veggies

fruit

nuts

gluten-free bars (Enjoy Life, Envirokids, Larabars, etc.)

gluten-free "Chex Mix" (got that recipe from the Dummies book)

gluten-free crackers with peanut butter or cheese

fruit leather

gluten-free "trail mix" (nuts, raisins, choc. chips, etc.)

I hope that helps to get you started!

I think The Gluten Free Bible was a great book. Sure, some of the info is outdated, but the book is still great. You have to look at when the book was written to understand that sometimes it will be outdated, but there will still be very beneficial info within.

i thought the bible was great for introducing me into the lifestyle of a person w/ celiac. it is a good coping book, w/ just the right amount of humor.

my favorite book is Life Tastes Good Again, which is a cookbook you can buy from www.eatingglutenfree.com. I have yet to find a bad recipe there! The site has lots of great recipes too!! As does this place :D
