Book Description

What is Gluten Free is an easy to follow guide that will help you to understand the categories of gluten intolerance. The list of symptoms that are reported from people suffering from various forms of gluten intolerance is truly staggering. Another sad statistic is the amount of people that go undiagnosed from having one of the forms of the illness. What's more disheartening is that these people need only to go on a gluten free diet to virtually eliminate these nasty symptoms that are reeking havoc on their body systems.

After covering the basics of what it means to be gluten free, you'll learn what it really takes to live day to day with gluten sensitivity or with Celiac disease. We'll cover the many foods and products that contain gluten and of course what foods are gluten free. You may be surprised to find out about some of the options that are now available for gluten free cooking in the home, as well as when we're on the go.

With today's fast paced and often hectic schedule, many people simply don't have time to plan and cook gluten free meals everyday of the week. So when your on the go, you will learn how to find gluten free restaurants and when that isn't an option, you'll learn what to do when you don't have a gluten free menu. Traveling on vacation, or on holiday are covered too.

Many people think that living a gluten free lifestyle is a huge expense that will severely impact your budget. We've got two chapters devoted to this topic alone. Learn the tips and tricks to saving money when you go out to buy gluten free products. We'll also share a very unique way to save real dollars that will add up quickly, thus making living gluten free easier than you ever thought possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the Book November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beautiful cover. It was very informative and easy to understand. I learned something new about how gluten has an adverse effect on the body and deprives it of nutrients. It was an easy read without being too technical. I appreciate her list of ways to save money on gluten free products. One way I did this was by using Pamela's Products Ultimate Baking & Pancake Mix, 24-Ounce Packages (Pack of 6) to make at home that I buy in bulk. Whenever we have company for brunch we always serve waffles and everyone raves about them, not knowing they are Gluten Free. Yay!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of people have to eat a gluten free diet these days. But gluten free doesn't have to be taste free.

This cookbook should help even the most finicky eater.

Just starting out with the knowledge of being gluten sensitive need all the advice I can get, and this book was a lot of help. None of the store offer a lot of gluten free flours and pasta so the list of where to shop online a big help. Liked the book a lot!

2.0 out of 5 stars Has some real problems December 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although this book provides some good basic information on how to develop a gluten free diet, there are some problems. The most glaring are the inaccuracies. In the chapter on foods that do and don't contain gluten, the author states that brown rice has gluten. It does not. In the chapter on eating out, the author states that soy contains gluten. It does not. Many soy sauces, but not all, contain wheat. Also in this chapter the author writes that many Italian restaurants serve polenta and other types of gluten free pasta. Polenta is not a pasta.

Finally, overall, the grammar throughout the book is atrocious. I had significant difficulty finishing this short book because of the constant errors in word usage and poorly constructed sentences.

It was an okay book for free, but I wouldn't invest any money in it.

More About the Author

Erica Drew is a mother of two wonderful kids, a boy and a girl. Erica has been a stay at home mom since the birth of her first child. Back in 2008 Erica's life took a drastic change for the worse. Her happy family life was becoming increasingly difficult due to her deteriorating health. Doctor after doctor and what seemed like endless tests turned up nothing conclusive. However, there was one thing that came up that doctors knew for sure, it was that she was not absorbing vitamins and minerals. The iron levels in her blood were getting dangerously low and Erica needed regular intravenous iron injections to raise them to normal levels. The doctors were stumped as to why her blood iron levels were continuously falling and thus causing major challenges to her day to day life of raising a family.

It wasn't until years later that Erica discovered that she was gluten intolerant. Even though it was later determined that Erica had Celiac disease, the tests for Celiac came back negative. The reason for the negative test result was because she had already began living a gluten free lifestyle. Once finding out that gluten was the main culprit of her health condition, her life finally began to change for the better. Over the next several months Erica would regain her former levels of energy and vitality. Erica's life has always been busy and on the fast track; now, by living gluten free she is able to keep pace with her hectic schedule.

Erica is very happy and proud to be able to share her story and research with others who may also be suffering from a form of gluten intolerance. After sharing the first draft of her book with family and friends, Erica knew that she wanted to share her book with a larger audience. Partnering with Amazon's Kindle Select program was the perfect fit for Erica.

Erica also has a great passion for cooking. Look for Erica's fantastic gluten free recipes, also available on Kindle.
