This comprehensive resource, created by three leading authorities in dietetics, nutrition, and vegetarian cooking, offers a unique blend of scientific researach, practical advice, and culinary expertise that will show you how to: know the difference between food allergy, food intolerance and food sensitivity; test for allergies; avoid the foods and ingredients that trigger reactions; maintain a healthy intestinal boundary; understand the latest food labeling regulations; and create menus that meet your nutritional requirements. Over 100 recipes by uncheese specialist Jo Stepaniak redefine the notion that allergy-free means flavor-free.

I have nursed my son, and discovered his allergies early when he was 2 months old, but couldn't pinpoint what they were exactly, and went through a lot of stuggles trying to help my son. I finally discovered I needed to do and elimination diet for myself in order to find out what foods I ate affected him. I understand your pain and suffering, emotionally and physically if you going through similar trials & are searching for answers.
Most other "allergy" cookbooks I've read so far will just make you omit a bunch of the "off-limits" ingredients from a normal recipe, and that pretty much eliminated most of the recipes in those cookbooks for my son & I to consume. This one actually gives you alternative ingredients to replace the off-limit ingredients! I'm excited about trying these recipes, once the ingredients I've ordered arrive (Gluten Free Mall: [...]) has products you can purchase online, and has been a great source!)
I have a grain mill which makes these recipes very easy for me to make. I have whole grains/beans that I grind to make the flour. They have a suggestion for an all-purpose flour mix, which I make a double batch & keep in the freezer. I can whip everything up in a flash. Can you tell I'd been craving breads?
I haven't tried many other recipes yet. I also haven't read the first half of the book, which is information that I am already familiar with.
Another good book is the gluten-free vegan.
This book is HIGHLY recommended! I give it 5 stars, but the option is stuck on 4 stars.
