Eating Gluten-free By Shreve Stockton

Hi I am a total newbie

I was wondering if anyone has read Eating Gluten-Free: Delicious Recipes and Essential Advice for Living Well without Wheat and Other Problematic Grains by Shreve Stockton. I read a few of the sample pages on Amazon and it seems like a good fit, but I want to make sure the information is accurate before I spend all that money (and risk confusing myself further) :blink:

Thanks

Gwendolene

I have it, and it's ok. Some of the recipes are decent, but in all honesty I haven't opened that book since the week I got it. I don't remember any really inaccurate info, but one thing that did annoy me was her insistance that people not use splenda (sucralose) because it is a "chemical compound". Um ok lady, regular sugar is a chemical compound! Everything we eat is made up of chemical compounds! But I digress. Had I to do it over again I probably wouldn't have spent the money on that book. You can get plenty of recipes here and other places on the internet for free.

    • From what I have read online there is about a 1-3% chance of getting a false positive for celiac disease from a blood test.  Unfortunately it sounds to me like you have celiac disease.  It may be worth your while to get a biopsy or more testing just to confirm it.  I know being gluten free is a pain but it is better than getting cancer or other auto immune disorders. 
    • I prefer edible candy. I have glaucoma and celiac so it helps me on a daily basis for all of my medical problems. I wish I could find a strain that has laxative effects so I didn't need linsess. Leafly.com has a lot of strain information and cannabist is a good resource, too. You can use CBD or THC and not get 'stoned'. I function fine on 20 mg of the candy. I refuse to drive if I smoke though. Good luck, hope it helps.
    • MC can be quite harsh as a laxative if your using it as one very effective....I mean 2 boxes of exlax did me nada back then. For a daily supplement try just taking Nature Vitality Calm twice daily start off with 1/4tsp work your way up to 1tsp doses if you can. If this is too harsh on you use a Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best, less effective as a laxative but will still help provide you with a magnesium you body can utilize.
    • Thanks will try MC I tried LBS although it worked but it was brutal on my stomach 😬😬
    • OH odd info here but the best way I found found to use it is a slow low temp extraction into coconut oil, and using this oil in cooking. Use a mortar and pestal to grind your greens into a fine powder, and heat slowly in a pan with virgin coconut oil just very low temp for a while you will see the oils from the greens mix with the coconut oil. You can then use this oil blend in baking edibles, or in whatever you wish. I make it very weak myself with just small bag in a entire 16oz container of coconut oil. I do it for the medical benefits nothing else. I like using it in paleo breads, or drizzle a bit over salads,   CBD oil also has some benefits I have noticed in smaller amounts and CBD is legal in most states the gold one seems to be the best.
