It seems like going gluten-free is the new thing to do in the world of diets and nutrition, but for those of us who suffer from Celiac's Disease, gluten sensitivities or wheat allergies, it's more than just a fad. But with all of the gluten-free products available out there, where do you even start if you're just beginning on your life without wheat?
If your doctor has recommended that you begin a gluten-free diet, or you want to see what all the fuss is about, we have a new book that can help you get started on the easy path to feeling better: eating foods that are naturally gluten and wheat free!
In her first book, The Complete Guide to Naturally Gluten-Free Foods, chef, blogger and Celiac sufferer Olivia Dupin shares over one hundred delicious recipes that are composed entirely of foods that are naturally gluten-free. The book starts with information about the various reasons people might begin a gluten-free diet, followed by a list of dozens of naturally gluten-free foods. From grains and starches to proteins to cheese and condiments, this list itself is chock full of useful information.
The second part of the book is where things really get started, however: the recipes. From tasty breakfasts, to yummy snacks to delicious dinners, the author has something to satisfy every palette, all with foods that are no-fuss. For a healthy lunch, check out the recipe for Quinoa Salad with Roasted Chicken, Apricots and Goat Cheese. For dinner, try out the New York Strip Steaks with Red Wine Sauce or the Asparagus and Leek Tart with Polenta Crust. Yum!
