Editorial Reviews

From the Author

People complain all the time about the cost of eating a gluten-free diet.  If you try making a gluten-free diet healthy, somehow the price seems to skyrocket even further!  I heard this frustration repeated many times over and decided to address the problem many experienced by sharing my tips and tricks I use as well as teach to clients on how to effectively lower the expense of shopping gluten-free.

Another secondary issue has to do with what happens once you get the food home and get it on the table for dinner in a reasonable amount of time.  I also share how I can get food ready quickly and function most of my week on auto-pilot without too much fuss over food.  Clients have found these techniques easy to implement and are truly astonished by how much less stressed out they are about mealtime.

"The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper" is my answer to these concerns as well as practical, no-nonsense guide to living a healthy, gluten-free lifestyle free from processed food.  No matter the size of your budget, everyone who reads the book finds plenty of time and cost-saving tips that making living gluten-free easier.

I’ve been living gluten free for over 4 years and still learned a ton from this book! It really breaks down why the diet can be so expensive and what you need to know in order to eat a healthy diet without spending so much extra money. The sections that detail how to prepare foods and veggies for storing and freezing is something I’ll refer back to again and again. I waste so much less food now that I follow these methods and my freezer is always stocked with healthy foods I can eat. But my favorite part is the meal planning and recipes that are provided. I know from experience that when you don’t plan ahead, you are more likely to grab expensive, unhealthy “gluten-free” convenience foods. Having step by step instructions on how to plan meals, with recipes to go along with it means I’m prepared and the food experience is less overwhelming and more enjoyable. You have to try the Baked Mediterranean Eggs, Brown Rice Porridge and Red Lentil Soup, those have become regulars for us now. Overall this is a very useful book, even if you don't eat Gluten Free.

Jennifer's book is one of the most thorough and informative guides to gluten-free shopping I've ever had the pleasure of reading! Not only does she include tips for stocking your kitchen, saving money at the store and information about essential kitchen tools, but she also dishes out ideas for storing food (container options, freezing vegetables, etc.) and planning meals. Plus, the recipes included are delicious and doable for even the most "un-cooks" out there! Creamy asparagus soup, spicy sweet potato wedges, quick apple crisp -- sign me up!

This book is an absolute must for anyone who is seeking a more delicious, well-planned and budget-friendly gluten-free lifestyle!

This is one heck of a guide. It goes WELL beyond the description. Everything you could ever need to know about food preparation is here. It is easy to see that Jennifer's heart and soul went into the creation of this book. It literally has everything. My favourite chapter? Food storage options & tips. Who knew that there was so much to know about the differences between containers, glass and plastic bags. Everything was thought of here. This book is now my one-stop resource for all things food preparation (and I have a hunch it'll become yours, too)

If you are new to gluten free, or have no idea what and where to go this is a good guide. To those of us that have been forced to find our own way, it's like reading a review of our life. Fun to read, no real new insights.

One of the common complaints I hear on a day-to-day basis, being a nutritionist and personal trainer, is that “healthy eating is more expensive”. Never mind the fact that getting a disease ends up costing a person way more than gluten-free food…but I digress. Since I am admittedly more science-based, a practical guide to eating gluten-free intrigued me. Enter Jennifer Fugo and “The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper”. Founder of GlutenFreeSchool.com and a gluten-free expert since 2008, Jennifer has condensed all the good ideas about going gluten-free into a single, easy-to-read guide. This is the book that will convert your stubborn relatives, the ones who don’t have the attention span to watch 30 minutes of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (though no one should ever do that anyway) let alone make it through an entire book. Jennifer has taken the complexities of avoiding gluten and deduced them down to the bare essentials. She came across this idea from her own experience of going gluten-free.
Coming from an Italian family, the last thing Jennifer expected was that she would have to avoid bread. Not only bread, but all gluten, casein, eggs and other items. In 2008 she was diagnosed with sensitivities to all of these foods. A cosmic shock, no doubt. She describes it in her book as “what simultaneously felt like a beacon of hope and a death sentence”. However, it wasn’t smooth sailing for her after this diagnosis. She writes “to be clear, I honestly thought that whatever was labeled gluten-free was healthy…After a year of eating as many gluten-free brownies, cupcakes, cakes, and pastries – truly anything labeled gluten-free – that I could find, I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and candida. On top of this, my husband lost his job.

This book has been a wonderful help for me. Many nights I struggle with what's for dinner am too tired to begin to figure out what to cook. My favorite part of the book is the help with meal planning for the week! My week has run so much smoother now that I have things planned and am only cooking 2-3 times a week!
The recipes in the book are wonderful and I'm not even tempted by the GF convenience foods that I was coming to rely heavily upon.
Finally I feel sanity creeping back into my life. Thank you Jennifer!
