Format: Paperback
A friend recommended that I buy the book Gluten Free, Hassle Free: My 5 year old daughter suffers from allergies, asthma, and eczema. After seeing many specialists, and taking many tests, I was not getting any answers and decided to cut dairy, wheat, and gluten out of her diet. I also have a husband to feed, as well as a toddler (and a baby on the way), and since I do not have time to make different meals for different people, I was a bit worried about how things would taste, and if my family would take to it. Enter GF/HF--Wow!!! What an amazing resource! This book teaches you to read labels and also has so much information about foods to avoid. The recipes are absolutely delicious, easy to follow, and certainly without hassle. After only 1 week of following this diet, my daughters skin has cleared up--amazing! Other than that, we are all very much enjoying the scrumptious (and healthier) food. This book is a must for anyone suffering from wheat/gluten allergies, or anyone who wants to change the way that their families eat. A big thanks to Gluten Free, Hassle Free, it's become my "go to" book before I cook anything.

Format: Paperback
I've been gluten free for nearly two years, and I've read every book I can find about gluten free living. In my opinion, this is one of the best and most up to date.

The beginning of the book is for those newly diagnosed. "What is gluten?" "What CAN I eat?" She provides sample meal plans and grocery shopping suggestions, listing what foods are safe, not safe, or questionable.

As the book progresses, more challenging gluten free ideas are presented for the more experienced with the lifestyle. Such as making your own flour mix, gluten free gourmet meals for company, etc. There are over 100 recipes in this book.

The author also addresses the feelings many people like myself have dealt with when newly diagnosed, such as "I don't want to go out and draw attention to myself in a restaurant. It's easier to just stay home." Or "How do I explain to my friends when they try to say 'It's only a LITTLE bit of gluten - you can eat that!'"

One thing I thought was unique about this book was the dining out cards. Many other books have these, but this book has them in 14 different languages, for ethnic cuisine or foreign travel. Cool!

I would recommend this book to anyone living a gluten free lifestyle, and to those with a gluten free relative or close friend who want to help and understand.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like many people new to gluten-free, I bought several books on the subject, and found this to be by far the most disappointing. I understand why it appeals to so many people; you can call yourself gluten-free with the least number of changes to your lifestyle.

The problem is that this book does address gluten-free issues; but not how to really be healthy. It only addresses part of the problem, by substituting high glycemic index foods, like rice starch and potato starch for gluten. It solves one problem, but adds to another. You can live gluten-free like this, but still be overweight, and develop diabetes. "Dietician-approved" or not, it's just not good advice at all; when will registered dieticians learn? Developing diabetes and heart problems is not my idea of "hassle free." I don't like sounding so negative, but one look at the author's photograph on the back cover will confirm my point.

I'm sorry I bought this book, and even sorrier that I took too long to look it over, so that it's not worth returning it to Amazon. A much better book, with real science and good advice, is Davis's book, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health It doesn't make the dietary change sound as easy and fun-filled as Brown's book; but it's far more healthy and realistic. Following his real-world and real-science approach, I believe you can really rebuild your health; for me, that's much more important than not giving up brownies.

I like the chapter "quick and easy substitutions" and "cooking gluten free." It includes recipes for making your own gluten free sauces and condiments that are simple to make; the pumpkin pancakes using the gluten free all purpose flour blend will be handy when I have my friend over who has celiac.
This is a great resourse for people who have celiac and for families who need to learn about gluten free cooking. It sounds intimidating but with resources like this, one can quickly double check how to modify a recipe. Also the cartoons in the book by Brown and Cypser are funny but true.

As a registered dietitian and diabetes educator in private practice, I am always looking for good books to recommend to my clients. Without a doubt Gluten Free Hassel Free is a winner. Written by a real foodie, this book provides easy to follow recipes, tips, strategies and shortcuts to make living gluten free easy. In 15 upbeat, empowering chapters, Marlisa clearly explains how living gluten-free can improve the quality of life and enable one to stay healthy.

If you work with clients who have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, Gluten Free Hassle Free is a must. It will serve as a great professional reference and a life line for your clients - enabling them to stay healthy and gluten free.
