If You Could Have One Celiac Reference Book, What Would It Be?

Recommended Posts

Up to this point, the internet has been my primary resource and will probably continue to be so. I do have Wheat Free, Worry Free by Danna Korn, and I have found it valuable. I'm a book kinda gal, and I'm trying to decide which one to buy next, another good reference book or a cookbook. I've considered the Triumph Guides for groceries and dining out, they look like they might well be worth the money, and I've looked at Gluten Free for Dummies and Danna Korn's book for kids. Money is tight at the moment though and if I buy one thing, it needs to be ONLY one, LOL, so I thought I'd ask here, what printed resource has been the most valuable for you in learning to live with Celiac or GI?


Blessings,

Amy, mama to 3 awesome boys!

Dr. Peter Green's: Celiac Disease: a Hidden Epidemic, is a great source book, as is this site. You won't find better help.

I have the book lisa mentioned as well as gluten-free for Dummies...both are very good!

I personally wouldn't spend the money on teh dining cards...things change and you can always call ahead to resturants.

I agree, Dr. Green's book is excellent.

Do you have a library nearby? Maybe you could check out a few of the ones you are interested in. Read them, and then decide which ones are worth owning. I have been able to check out all the books mentioned so far from our library.
