Book Description


My names Pat Yarbrough and this is my book. In it I talk about the things that I've found that are actually important to help you live your life gluten-free. When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease in January of the year 2000, which "officially" made me gluten-intolerant, there wasn't a whole lot of information about living and eating gluten-free.

Because of that, the early years were really tough. I had to figure it out myself. And that meant gluten reactions, lost work and lost income. But, I’ve learned that if you go about it right, it is possible to live a full, satisfying life in spite of needing to live gluten-free. And, in my book I talk about what it really takes to live successfully with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity or wheat allergy.

I get down into the nitty-gritty of eating gluten-free. My book has recipes, meal plans and safe foods lists. I talk about how to make sure your food that you buy is actually gluten-free. I discuss some of the games manufacturers play to make you think the food's gluten-free when its not. I talk about cross-contamination and what you can do to identify where that gluten-reaction is coming from.

And, I talk about dealing with family, schools, gluten-free kids, setting up your kitchen and pantry and more.

I really hope that this can be a very helpful book to you because I know from personal experience just how hard finding out that you have a disease that makes you gluten intolerant, gluten sensitive or have a wheat allergy, can be, especially when you are first diagnosed...

… I know that I had secret fears about not being able to find foods that I could actually eat and enjoy. I had fears about not being able to stay healthy with what I could find in my local grocery stores. And, so did my husband. Years later he shared about some of the fears that he had when I was first diagnosed with celiac disease.

It was a scary, frustrating time for both of us.

But, I think that my fear about losing the times of meal-time intimacy and closeness that had become a treasured possessions of mine was the worst fear of them all. I was afraid that those precious moments would be lost forever because of my newly discovered condition.

I will never forget the first time that I served one of my gluten-free meals to my family for dinner. It was not a pretty, congenial or fun family time. It was a disaster. It seemed like the whole family was furious with me. They later told me that they hated the food, it tasted “empty” and they were afraid that I would insist that they eat my gluten-free food from then on.

It was a time when I felt very alone, scared and hopeless.

But, it doesn’t need to be that way for you. You will learn to deal with your condition and you will learn to deal with it well... just like I did.

You have taken the first step to doing that by purchasing this book. It contains everything important from my first two books plus much more. It talks about dealing with gluten-free kids at various ages including babies, setting up your pantry and kitchen in a mixed-gluten-free environment household, and a special section about meal planning which includes an actual 7-day menu plan with recipes, pictures and preparation instructions.

This is the book that I wish that I had when I was first diagnosed with celiac disease... It would have made my new life so much easier.

People without the need to live gluten-free can't possibly understand completely what you and I go through each day. And, they never will unless they wake up one morning and discover that they too have celiac or a similar disease

My heart's desire is to help you live fully and well in spite of your condition.

Don’t wait, get your copy right now! It's guaranteed so if it doesn't do everything that you expect it to do, just tell Amazon and they will give you your money back with no hassle, strain or pain.

Take care and let me know what you think of

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Out of all the gluten free books that I have read, I would say this is my favorite. This book explains everything so well. There is a lot of information to take in and I will be going back over what I highlighted. I especially love the part about baby's and children with celiac disease. I have been gluten free for 3 years now and I feel good and see a huge difference in my health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative December 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is great when you trying to learn about the gluten free lifestyle. I used it as a simple guide to what you can and cannot eat while being gluten free. Just remember that a gluten free diet is not always low fat or low you still have to watch calories and fat if you are trying to lose weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eating & Living A Gluten Free Diet. July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very knowledgeable book from someone who has obviously learned a lot in her struggle with gluten intolerance. I highly recommend it for anyone beginning their journey into a gluten free life. I would also recommend it for anyone who is already living gluten free but would like more help in the practical side of how to do so. A must read!

More About the Author


I'm Pat Yarbrough. I'd like to share a little bit about me and why I write books gluten intolerance.

I'm married and my husband is two years and 6 days older than me. So, since his birthday is a week before mine, we usually end up doing the joint celebration thing. And, I've been married to the same man for over 42 years... my first and last husband.

Plus, to make it even better, I'm the proud mother of 2 adult sons; both of whom are happily married and I have one granddaughter and two step-grandsons... all wonderful people that I love dearly.

In a nutshell, I have a stable family, happy marriage, a nice home in a good neighborhood, etc.

Those are marvelous, wonderful things and I have been blessed by the God I serve through them. And, I am extremely grateful.


... But, the truth is that I've also had problems all of my life with body things that were not normal. Things that hurt and made me ill and no one, not even the doctors back then, had even a clue about what was wrong.

At first, I and the doctors thought that my aches and pains were merely "woman issues." ...

... Issues with my abdomen, my stomach, joint aches and pains, headaches, neuropathy (numbness and tingling in my hands and feet), ataxia (light-headedness and dizziness), dysmenorrhea (difficult menstrual flow or painful menstruation, including cramps) and excessive exhaustion ...

As I grew older and lost the ignorance and innocence of youth, I worried that I had anemia, cancer, diabetes and who knows what else? The doctors in the 1990s and earlier didn't even know what I had.

Fortunately, I didn't have any of those dread diseases.

All those symptoms that I listed were caused by one thing...

... They were all caused by celiac disease, which is sometimes called gluten intolerance. Gluten intolerance is actually a broader category which includes a number of conditions but my condition is know as celiac disease.

I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease at the turn of the century, in the year 2000... I was 52 years old at the time. I'm now 64 years old so its been a bit over 12 years since the doctors finally figured out what was wrong with me.

Celiac disease is genetic and I've probably had it all my life. It can be miserable but, in the last 12 years, I've learned that it can also be managed and how to do that effectively.

I've learned how to avoid gluten... In foods and in non-food sources. When I am able to completely avoid gluten, I have no trouble with gluten reactions and I feel good almost all the time.

And, I want to help you avoid it too. That's why I do what I do.
