Review

Dr. Stuart H. Freedenfeld, of Stockton Family Practice, in Stockton, NJ, wrote in the Foreword to Melissa s Marvelous Meatless Meals Between these covers, Melissa has delivered a very readable and eminently useful guide to shopping, preparing and cooking gluten and casein free food that nourishes both body and soul. That it is vegetarian is important for some, and merely an exciting addition for others, but no one will feel deprived with these incredibly delicious vegetarian meals. --Dr. Stuart H. Freedenfeld, M.D.

What Readers Are Saying: THANK YOU for this book. I went GF about 6 months ago (long story I won't bore you with). I used to be a vegetarian, and my husband and I talk about going veggie again. However, once I went GF I said there's no way I can give up meat TOO, I can barely eat anything on a restaurant menu as it is. And maybe I won't go 100% veggie, but your cookbook gives me a lot of at-home options. Christine. NJ I have a copy of Melissa's great cookbook. I've only had it for about a month and it's already food-stained and a bit dog-eared. Lots of great info and yummy recipes. Florrie. British Columbia Wonderful recipes, Melissa. THANK YOU! I am fighting fibromyalgia through food allergies, and your book meets all my needs--and has GOOD recipes, too. Even my husband actually eats them. I even sent copies to two of my family. Carol. NJ I learned about your cookbook in the Hunterdon Democrat. As soon as I read your story, I thought about my friend who has Celiac disease. So I purchased a book for her, too. I personally don't have the problem myself, but I still would like to omit gluten from my diet as much as I can. I am always trying to find new ideas and information to maintain a healthy life style. So when I read about your story. I couldn't wait to get your cookbook. I have tried the Kale with garlic and olive oil. The next recipe that I'll want to try will be the buckwheat and bean chili. Also I'll have to try the Jerusalem Artichoke Soup. I have been growing them in my garden for the past 5 years. And there are many more of your recipes that I would love to make but too many to list. Thank you so much for putting this cookbook together. Marlene. NJ My friend loaned me your book and I'm loving it. I've been recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, so am still finding my way around the myriad of information that's out there. I found your book to be informative and the recipes simple and delicious - my family loves the Banana Date muffins! Julia, British Columbia The books arrived and I have already made Beans & Greens to great acclaim. I gave a copy to my dietitian friend and neighbor and she has also said that your book is impressive. Thanks again for publishing the book. I look forward to the next one.... British Columbia We got the book. What a wonderful publication. It is very thorough; your notes are helpful. Love that you have emphasized that the meals are not complicated or time consuming to prepare. I am sure so may who use the book will find cooking and preparing recipes for a family member with dietary problems very helpful. Great job and congratulations! Dorothy. TX A friend of mine is from NJ- she read an article about you in the local paper and called me- I am a vegetarian and celiac, I was so thrilled- I had no idea such a book existed. I love it! Joan, Greensburg, PA Thank you for all of the effort and persistence it took to write such an engaging, informative, and easy to read guide. The nutritional value of your recipes will benefit everyone in my family, even those without specific food allergies! Dottie, NJ --Satisfied Readers

I have recommended this book many times, specifically to those who have friends or relatives who suffer from intestinal issues. I also gave two of these to co-workers last Christmas who have children affected by autism and the results were positive. NO, not a cure, not a miracle, but an improvement. If you think about it, the better nutrition our bodies receive, the better our bodies will do. My favorite recipes are the "Blueberry Spinach Salad", and "Virginia's Favorite Vegetable Soup". Please know that I am a diehard "non-vegan", love steak, and don't require a special diet. This cookbook belongs in every good cooks bookcase for alternative recipes that bring a great benefit to your dining table.

This cookbook is great. The recipes are easy to make and taste wonderful. Love the granola cookies and the corn muffins. I make them over and over. It isn't easy to find gluten free friendly recipes that are also vegan.

This cookbook is a pretty good information source for a new gluten freeby, such as myself. She includes a lot of information about allergies and what you need to go gluten free. The reason why I can't use the book so much, is because my family simply isn't into Asian inspired food. There's a lot of Health store food utilized that I don't have access to, such as sea vegetables and Tempeh, etc. Just be sure that you have a good health food store near you that can order a lot of random gluten free products. I was hoping to find more hearty main courses like nut loaf (meatloaf substitutes) and faux turkey, etc. It's also a little difficult to navigate because there's no index. But I can see how non-southern families would greatly enjoy this book. I will definately be using the dessert section with pleasure!

Looking at a quick review of this book, I notice it says she uses Brown Rice Syrup for flavoring - Any rice syrup has Gluten in it. Rice syrup (unless specified GF, it contains barley enzymes)which has gluten and free glutamic acid or msg.
