Your body is an amazing machine that is constantly working to repair itself. Sometimes we interrupt our body's ability to heal itself by introducing foreign chemicals and preservatives that attack our system, and, unfortunately, our body spends its precious healing powers trying to fight off the toxins in the processed foods we consume. Julieanna's recipes give your body that healing power again by eliminating the intruding ingredients (like gluten) and chemicals that harm our digestive and immune systems.
Gluten seems to carry with it many side effects. It has been well-established that eliminating gluten from your diet can bring a new energy and vibrance to your body. One of the most famous cases of the power of a gluten-free diet is Novak Djokovic. Novak was always second-fiddle to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the ATP circuit, but, a couple of years ago, Novak discovered that he had a gluten allergy and removed gluten completely out of his diet. His body became stronger and his stamina increased, and, just after adopting his gluten-free lifestyle, he quickly overtook the #1 spot in men's tennis and has retained that title ever since.
Give Julieanna's recipes a try for 10 days and I guarantee you will start to feel the increased energy, renewing power, and resilient healing that comes from a gluten-free, vegan diet. It will change your life.
There is very little use of oils in the recipes as oils are considered a processed food and therefore an unhealthy food choice. The authors did suggest using expeller or cold-pressed oils if one opts to cook with oil. Now here is where I had a hard time agreeing with the authors: Coconut oil and fish oil are touted as unhealthy. If you do your own research you can refute this claim. But I will leave that up to you. As an Asian natural foodist and a trained chef, I am disappointed from a cultural stand point of view. I love coconut milk, coconut oil and coconut meat. I love using these in my cooking. Unfortunately, since the authors deemed coconut products with the exception to coconut water as unhealthy, you will find no recipes here using coconut milk, coconut oil or coconut meat/flakes. That is a shame. I am sure you may, at your own risk, substitute coconut milk/oil for some of the ingredients in the recipes. I know that is what I would do.
There are some interesting recipes here such as gluten-free seitan and sausages. For those of us who miss meat, or are tired of tofu, beans and tempeh, this could be something that might be worth trying. I am not sure whether they are any good, but I will give it a try.

I am disappointed with most of the recipes in this book. I gave it a shot and now this book will sit in my shelf unused. I am not ready to part with it yet, but I wouldn't hesitate to do so in the near future. In my personal opinion, this book is not for me. My kids, my husband and I find the meals either too bland or not satisfying enough. The search for a great gluten-free vegan cookbook continues! Thanks for reading my review.
Your menus will never be boring using the Complete Idiot's Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Cooking as your guide.
