I checked out a book today by Jax Peter Lowell call against the grain. It seemed like a good book, I was wondering if anyone has read it and if you would recommend it. I saw a quote on the back cover that I thought was great.....

Isn't it ironic that the french word for bread is the english word for pain?

How profound :lol:

Somewhere around here is an ongoing saga concerning this author and her book. Only say nice things about her book or she'll sue you too. ;)

I can tell you quite a few people wouldn't recommend that book b/c they feel the some of the information in it is not accurate. You can do a search in the forums for the book by typing +against+the+grain in the search box. You can then read the posts individuals have made concerning the book. I would say the most recommended book on this forum is "wheat free, worry free" by danna korn. You can order or buy it just about anywhere, including on amazon.

That is funny about the word "pain" too :) I took french for several years and never really thought about it. I have noticed wheat in another language is ble.... makes me think "bleh!" :lol:

Even better that the world for wheat gluten (according to macrobiotics) is "seitan" pronounced Satan - OR that one French word for wheat is "ble" which is kind of how it makes me feel - BLEH! :P

Most of my comments on the Gluten Free Bible apply to Against the Grain, as well. And many things are worse in that book than in her updated version--for example, her stance on cross-contamination. I'm going to restrain myself from saying any more than "I don't like it."

Yes, I had thought the same way before about ble (imagine an accent aigu over the e because I'm not going to bother to paste one in here...)

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
