First let me say that I am in NO WAY an expert or an authority on the Gluten Free lifestyle. My family and I just started on this new adventure and I am very much a NEWBIE to the Gluten Free world.
I just thought it would fun to blog about our GF adventures so I can not only keep myself organized, but maybe help some of you out there in blog land too.
So here we go…
Today I’ll share with you the list of books that I’ve been reading. I LOVE to research things on the internet (and my next blog post will be about web sites I’ve found), but sometimes I just need a good book in my hand to get all the information.
I went to our local libraries database and reserved a few titles to get me started. Though I didn’t know at the time, these books would be a GREAT base for me to jump off from.
The G Free Diet by Elisabeth Hassleback – this was a great book to start with. Elisabeth shares her story of how she struggled for years with pain and illness before being diagnosed. It wasn’t until she went on Survivor that she started to realize that food may be the cause of her problems. Elisabeth does a great job sharing basic information for anyone that may be struggling with Celiac or any other type of gluten intolerance.
Celiac Disease, A Hidden Epidemic by Peter Green, M.D. – I’m still working through this book, but have gained a lot of information.
Healthier without Wheat by Dr. Stephen Wangen – another great find. This books does a great job in explaining the symptoms and allergies to wheat that people may have.
And no booklist would be complete without a cookbook!
the Best Gluten Free Family Cookbook by Donna Washburn & Heather Butt – I haven’t tried any of these recipes yet, but I LOVE the listing of basic mixes for quick breads and pancake/waffles.
(I’ve added a Amazon Book Widget on my sidebar where you can find these books)
Again, let me say that I am NOT an expert by any means. I’m just starting to learn about all this stuff.
Also, no one in my family has been actually DIAGNOSED with a gluten intolerance. This is just something that I was being led towards and the more I researched, the more I was seeing some of our family issues listed in the symptoms.
For my next GF post, I’ll share with you some of the web sites and blogs that I have found so far! And I have found A LOT!!
