"Millions suffer needlessly by not knowing that their chronic illnesses, digestive problems, headaches, autoimmune diseases, joint pain, weight gain, depression, fatigue, and more are caused by a staple in our diet: a pesky protein called gluten found in wheat, barley, and rye. Leslie Cerier’s new cookbook opens a world of food wonders and delights, making gluten-free eating an inviting celebration of flavors, textures, and colors. The side effect is weight loss, energy, and, for many, relief of serious chronic illnesses. For anyone who wants to celebrate food while getting healthy and living lightly on the planet, this cookbook is your guide."
