Very Frustrating if You're Gluten-Free or Have Food Intolerances
on February 20, 2010
I really wanted to like this book: I did. But....if you're gluten-free, there aren't many coupons out there-- although there are weekly sale fliers, ways to bake your own baked goods more cheaply, and, on Amazon, subscriptions that you can use to cut down the costs of basic gluten free items substantially.
(Pacific Foods soups and broths are gluten free; Gluten Free Pantry mixes are gluten free, good, and cheap: both can be bought by 15% off subscription on Amazon.)
If you try to find gluten-free coupons, you're just going to lose a whole lot of sleep, and/or take away from real work that will actually pay for food.
That said, there are some useful ideas in this book if you're gluten free: the author suggests buying what he calls, "Core" foods to have as a basis for many recipes which can be made with sauces that vary your meals substantially. That is a good idea, for anyone.
Beyond that, though, there isn't much that is helpful to your average sort-of-scratch cooking, price watching foodie. And, I'm not saying that out of spite: I really tried. The few websites I did find that cater to persons with celiac now have all my e-mail addresses--and after several hours of work using the techniques in this book, I saved a whopping $8.00.
Save your money for Amazon gluten free food subscriptions. Don't waste your time with this if you have celiac or other food intolerances.
