My thoughts:
I have mentioned before on another post about a cookbook, this year my daughter started Kindergarten and seems to have some attention problems. I did some research because I didn't want medicating her to be the first resolution we tried and I found out that people with gluten sensitivities can have attention and behavior problems. So, we set out to remove gluten fro her diet. Problem is, gluten is in so much stuff it is impossible to know where to begin ad what to remove. Gluten-Free, Hassle Free is a great place to start for anyone looking to remove gluten from their diet. This is an amazing resources for avoiding gluten. It covers every subject you cold possibly think of- everything from what foods do have gluten and what foods are safe to eat, how to avoid gluten restaurants, how to entertain gluten free and so much more. There are extensive charts that you could bring with you to the grocery store that list all of the safe foods to eat and all of the foods to avoid. Throughout all of this wonderful information contained in this informative book, there are tons of gluten-free recipes for you to try. There are so many tasty recipes to try. Some standouts include: artichoke cheese dip, cornmeal crusted chicken tenders, portabella mushroom burgers, chicken in vodka sauce with mushrooms, and chocolate dream tarts, There are even menu ideas for what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would recommend this book to anyone that has someone with a gluten sensitivity or anyone that is just interested in eating more gluten free meals.
