While reading this book which contains many appetizing gluten free recipes, I learned what caused my nasal congestion and fatigue. A real-world example which made me understand this gluten-free idea is that when I would occasionally drink a beer, which is full of gluten, my sinuses would get congested almost immediately and I could never figure out why before.
Wheat, Rye and Barley are just a few gluten ingredients that are hidden in most of the food we consume according to Chatam's book.
I was not aware of the many symptoms caused by eating gluten-containing foods: ADD, Depression, Anemia and more. The book explains the cause of celiac disease; the most extreme condition linked to consuming gluten. For celiacs, this book is a must-have. I found many examples of celiac friendly foods along with celiac recipes that taste very good.
The most interesting fact about going grain free, is that after 3-4 weeks of eliminating gluten from my diet, I actually felt detoxified, full of energy and am now sleeping better. Some people spend hundreds of dollars visiting a physician, trying to cure problems that could be solved by just purchasing this book. I highly recommend that you eliminate gluten from your diet also, this book will show you how.
Chatham addresses the chief obstacles to diet change: stress, monetary expense, inconvenience, time-consuming preparation and―perhaps the worst offender―unappetizing food. The book contains recipes for soups, salads, breads, snacks and entrees, as well as links to thousands more online. In addition, the reader will find an alphabetized list of foods and substances that contain gluten and a separate list of foods that are allowed.
What the author clearly wanted to do with this well-researched book was to take all the labor and guesswork out of going "gluten free in the real world." Everything is dealt with: eating out, shopping challenges, grain substitutes, weight loss and the prospect of improved health.
I found the book to be informative and readable. I recommend it not only for those with gluten intolerance but for everyone who wants to improve their dietary health.
The Gluten Free Lifestyle does more than lay out an easy to follow gluten-free diet. It helps the reader understand the way gluten works and those of us with gluten allergies handle it. It alerts readers to the "hidden gluten" used in the processing of food and present in household items like soap and glue. Finally, it helps the reader "gluten proof" their diet and plan gluten free meals at home and eating out while still accommodating non-gluten free friends and family members.
The recipes are what make this book stand out from similar dieting books. Gluten Free Lifestyle not only tells you what foods you can't have, it gives you healthy and delicious alternatives. As someone who enjoys cooking, I appreciated the gluten to non-gluten flour substitution guide and the recipes within satisfied me and my non-gluten free family. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert are all accounted for; everything from fruit filled breakfast crepes to chicken stir fry to gluten free carrot cake.
