Covers ALL Major Food Allergies (or pretty darn close),
This review is from: Living Without's Gluten Free & More (1-year auto-renewal) (Magazine)
As other reviewers have mentioned, it's a great "How To" guide for those with newly diagnosed food allergies. What's great about "Living Without" is that they try very hard to cover *all* the bases. They hit the 2 biggies - gluten & dairy (casein) , with a reference page for each in the back of *every* issue. (It's called the quick-start guide.) Next, there's the "Substitution Solutions" for cooking & baking. There, they cover egg substitution as well as dairy & gluten (4 gluten-free flour recipes!), along with guidelines for using xanthan or guar gum, which are necessary for baking with gluten-free flour.
In addition, there's a Q & A column where readers can ask for help with less common allergens like garlic or rice, etc. There's plenty of recipes and gorgeous photos of delicious foods that make you feel like 'hey, I can handle this!' The recipes usually cover additional substitutions like egg, etc. if needed. There's also a regular 'research round-up' which summarizes the latest research results involving food allergies - connections to various diseases & conditions, etc. And the articles are wonderful - inspiring stories of those with the same problems, also in-depth reports on issues like missed diagnosis, traveling with food allergies, summer camp for allergic kids, etc.
I love every issue & I'm giving two gift subscriptions this Christmas!
