Okay guys, I thought something needed to go here, and I have to say that my all time favorite book about celiac disease is Danna Korn's book "Wheat Free, Worry Free".

What is the best book about Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance that you have read??

The book "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly M.D. and Ron Hoggan M.A. is EXCELLENT!

There is a new book comming out this spring called "A personal touch on Celiac Disease", a few of us on this message board have put stories and recipes in it so you should look for it when it comes out!

the best (ok, the only one, but it's extremely good) book i ever read on wheat intolerance/wheat allergy is "Against the Grain," by Jax Peters Lowell. I've probably read through the entire thing 4 or 5 times, and it is great!! Not only does it have tons of information, tips, & recipes, ...it is HILARIOUS! Reading it makes me feel like maybe i'm not the biggest weirdo for having to dissect my food in front of everyone at a dinner party. :) I swear, any celiac/wheat intolerant person who reads this will finally be able to laugh out loud at all the funny/eccentric things (i.e. eating caviar w/ a spoon, bringing your own rice pasta to Italian restaurants) that one tends to go through with gluten/wheat intolerance. Especially after you've just been diagnosed (as I had), it's great to know that there's someone else out there who has the same annoying issues as i do (i.e. difficulty eating out at restaurants, dining with friends), and can offer some good advice on how to cope.

I enjoyed the humor in Against the Grain too but I think it is important to not that it was published quite a while ago so some of the nutritional information offered is no longer accurate.

I appreciated he down to earth approach for asking for what you need prepared the way you need it without apologizing for it. She is really good!!

"The Gluten Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg is also a very good book.

My husband and I used to eat out at least 4 nights a week. That was our lifestyle. I am adjusting to cooking my own food and eating at home. It is a major challenge but I am excited about it because I am already feeling soooo much better.

I need to add that this board is a real lifesaver! I love it. Thanks everyone for your knowledgeable support. It is great. The one thing I have learned very quickly is to not take other people's word for what I can and can't eat. I appreciate that frequently people post the website or book where they got their information so I can check it out for myself.

My attitude is that I am not giving up one thing that I don't have to but I am also not putting anything in my mouth that will rob me of my health. That means doing a lot of research and playing private detective about everything I eat but it is worth it.

I have to agree with Jessica that Bette Hagaman's Cookbooks are my favorites. It is good to have good info, but the recipies are what I enjoy. She certainly knows her stuff. My wife found a bunch of them on Ebay for a little less $$ as well. It is nice to save money when all the gluten-free flour is expensive out here.

    • Hello and welcome I don't have an answer, like you I'm eating rice in processed foods as well as a side dish so I'm also wondering if I'm eating too much. If the rice is in a product like flour there's no way to tell how its prepared etc However for this: You can pre soak and rinse the rice in advance and change the way you cook it to reduce your exposure by up to 80% Details: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2F1MDzyW55pg97Tdpp7gqLN/should-i-be-concerned-about-arsenic-in-my-rice    
    • I use almond, and coconut a lot now my bakery used to use oat and almond blends. We never used rice, or starches as our goal was to keep it low glycemic. Now days we are transitioning to cut out oats. I started having....ok I omitted and gave in after being in denial a similar reaction to oats (10% of celiacs do if I recall) over a year ago. Anyway as for flour blends premade avoiding rice and grains try simple mills at https://www.simplemills.com/collections/all I have composed a huge list of various gluten-free goods here, even recently updated with grain free, and pizza section https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hello Everyone, New here and have joined because I couldn't find an answer to my question online. I was diagnosed after a long spell with anemia in 2015 and have been on the diet (and improving!) ever since. But I wonder whether how much rice I'm eating is very healthy. I have always liked to bake and it took awhile to find a flour mix I like (Cup 4 Cup - worth its weight in gold...), but a lot of gluten-free food subs in rice (white rice, brown rice, rice flour) plus I eat actual rice as a side dish. Is this too much? Keep in mind, I also eat salads like it's my job and love making vegetable soups too. Any advice on gluten-free foods (specifically flours) that don't fall back on rice as a substitute? I should add that I can't really get excited about quinoa, despite my best efforts. Thanks in advance.  
    • I would say get retested, to be sure, do a gluten challenge with her where she eats gluten for 12 weeks, not much just a half slice of bread a day or a wheat cracker for the blood test and 2 weeks for the biopsy. You mentioned bumps, and dry patches...this might be DH from celiacs and if it is you can go to a dermatologist and they can test it. In some people with DH reactions to gluten, their intestines do not show much damage as most of the antibodies are directed elsewhere. In this case you would have your symptoms. Now Celiac is a autoimmune disease that commonly has other auto immune diseases associated with it. NOW if your daughter has the gene for it she could have another automimmune disease I am not very familiar with and someone else might be able to help you more on suggestions for testing. Now in my personal opinion it sounds like she was still getting into gluten when you said she was off of it. NOTE gluten is a tricky bugger, it is a protein smaller then a germ that can stick in cracks and scratches on all your utensils, food prep area, knifes, etc. As a flour it can hang in the air for hours and even be inhaled effecting some of us. It is present in a lot of things we do not consider, like makeup, playdough, shampoos, seasonings, sauces, even some dry wall spackles.  Now if she is in a shared house hold with other kids and not everyone is on this diet she has likely been getting into gluten somewhere, like touching glutened surfaces the other kids touched after eating gluten foods then putting her hand in her mouth or on safe foods. Or just randomly eating gluten foods, note symptoms can last weeks and wane from how it is effecting you. It does not take much to trigger symptoms you might have to be more careful and move her to a whole foods only diet, and have a separate prep area, utensils, cooking zone for her if you wish to keep fixing separate meals for her vs the gluten family.     I would suggest just changing the entire family over, anyway perhaps start with a separate fold out table, use freezer paper to line the prep area, a microwave, mini toaster oven, and some microwave cook ware like steamers, steam bags, etc. and using gloves to fix her meals. She will need her own condiment jars (crumbs in hte jars) and area for safe snacks. I would suggest getting her only gluten-free CERTIFIED FOODS for now. You can find some whole food healthy snacks at mygerbs.com, and a few other places. I will provide a link to gluten-free food list. PERHAPS you can change the entire family over....now days it is more like changing brands as everything you used to eat is available in a gluten-free brand. ALSO have a lot of dairy free options there. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hi wondering if someone could help. my daughter has mildly raised TTG  levels and the gliadine levels, she has one Coeliacs gene, but her biopsy came back negative.   We have kept her off gluten (and low dairy) for nearly a year to see if her symptoms improved.  They haven't.  But I don't know if they are related to gluten specifically.  Just wondering if anyone has other suggestions that may be going on with her.  Her symptoms are: - Short stature, she's nearly 9 and my 6 year old boy is nearly bigger than her - bumps on back of her arms - urine leaking and occasional soiled pants, which could be from constipation she has at time's - sticking out stomach - dry patchy rashes on her face - joint pain sporadically - vomits every 6 weeks, but hasn't had gluten and seems to be no food connection - reoccurring thrush She had gluten last night at a party and was fine today. I'm a bit lost and not sure where else to turn.  Thanks for any help.
