Product DetailsThe definitive guide to the gluten-free lifestyle, completely revised and updated for the 2.2 million Americans with celiac disease

According to a landmark 2003 National Institutes of Health study, 2.2 million Americans suffer from celiac disease, an allergy to the protein gluten found in wheat. Since this book was first published in 1995 (as Against the Grain), Jax Peters Lowell has been helping celiacs follow a gluten-free diet with creativity, resourcefulness, and humor.

This edition includes chapters covering
- the latest research into celiac disease, and myths that have
been debunked
- how to eat out happily, including a short course in restaurant
assertiveness training
- how to eat in happily, including a discussion of online and
mail order suppliers and negotiating the supermarket as a celiac
- dozens of delicious new recipes
- drugs, cosmetics, and other products tested for celiac-safety
- a thoroughly updated resource section

Tens of thousands of celiacs have already enhanced their lives with Lowell's authoritative, witty, and practical guide. The Gluten-free Bible promises to bring relief to the new gluten-intolerant generation.


Please Note:  While the Gluten-Free Bible was written and published in 2005, some of the information is no longer current or correct.


Product DetailsBette Hagman's first book, The Gluten-free Gourmet, brought good-tasting food back into the lives of the millions who are intolerant to the gluten in wheat, oats, barley, or rye, or who are allergic to wheat. Responding to a flood of requests for "more, more, more," she offers more than 265 additional gluten-free recipes for tasty meals. Now with a gourmet look, this book is as irresistible as ever for gluten-intolerant chefs and their families.


Healthier Without Wheat: A New Understanding of Wheat Allergies, Celiac Disease, and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance.

Healthier Without Wheat: A New Understanding of Wheat Allergies, Celiac Disease, and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. [Paperback]

Stephen Wangen This is the leading resource for discovering your wheat allergy or gluten intolerance. For millions of people, bread, pasta, and many other foods are bad for their health. Thousands of people have already come to their own realization that they are healthier without wheat in their diet, but it can be difficult to figure out when most doctors aren t knowledgeable on the topic. This book provides validation for what these people have discovered, and explains how you too can determine whether or not wheat and gluten are making you sick.

In Healthier Without Wheat you learn the difference between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, and wheat allergies. You will discover how hundreds of health problems are connected to wheat and gluten reactions and why sorting this out on your own can be more difficult than you might think. You will also discover how you can be gluten intolerant even if you don t have celiac disease, and why non-celiac gluten intolerance can be just as severe as or more severe than celiac disease.

You will also learn how to determine if your infant or child reacts to wheat or gluten. Healthier Without Wheat also covers nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in gluten intolerance, and equally important, what to do if you are avoiding gluten but not getting better. There are many books on living gluten free, but only one on how to determine whether or not you are gluten intolerant or have a reaction to wheat. You should read this book if you or someone you know suffers from any of the following: abdominal pain, chronic anemia (iron deficiency), arthritis, autoimmune diseases, constipation, depression, diarrhea, eczema, fatigue, fibromyalgia, frequent illness, headaches, heartburn, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome, irritability, migraines, or osteoporosis.

Product Details The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide [Hardcover]

Elisabeth Hasselbeck

For years, Elisabeth Hasselbeck couldn't figure out what was making her sick. She asked doctors and consulted nutritionists, but no one seemed to have any answers. It wasn't until spending time in the Australian Outback, living off the land on the grueling Survivor TV show, that, ironically, her symptoms vanished. Returning home, she pinpointed the food that made her sick -- gluten, the binding element in wheat. By simply eliminating it from her diet, she was able to enjoy a completely normal, healthy life. But that wasn't all. Hasselbeck discovered the myriad benefits that anyone can enjoy from a gluten-free diet: from weight loss and increased energy to even the alleviation of the conditions of autism.

In this all-inclusive book, Hasselbeck shares her hard-earned wisdom on living life without gluten and loving it. She gives you everything you need to know to start living a gluten-free life, from defining gluten - where to find it, how to read food labels - to targeting gluten-free products, creating G-Free shopping lists, sharing recipes, and managing G-Free living with family and friends.

About the Author

Hasselbeck was formerly known to television audiences as a participant on the wildly popular second edition of Survivor: The Australian Outback. Since taking her coveted seat on The View in 2003 she has been the focus of major magazine covers and articles including USA Weekend, Curious Parents, People, TV Guide, Fitness, Glamour, Us Weekly, Life, Pregnancy and ePregnancy. She has filled in on the FOX News Channel's Fox and Friends, and has been a guest on Hannity and Colmes, Larry King Live, The Martha Stewart Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Good Morning America.

Product DetailsArtisanal Gluten-Free Cooking: More than 250 Great-tasting, From-scratch Recipes from Around the World, Perfect for Every Meal and for Anyone on a Gluten-free Diet--and Even Those Who Aren't [Paperback]

Kelli Bronski (Author), Peter Bronski (Author)


Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2007, author Peter Bronski (At the Mercy of the Mountains) adapted to a gluten-free diet with the help of his wife, Kelli, a professionally-trained chef. In this outstanding volume of 250 recipes, the duo shares tips, tricks and favorite dishes. Once readers have mixed up the six-ingredient Artisan Gluten-Free Flour Mix and purchased a handful of key ingredients (wheat-free soy sauce, gluten-free vanilla extract, etc.), they'll be off and running with worry-free Garlic Naan, Crepes, pies, pasta, and ice cream. While recipes are uniformly excellent, Asian dishes like Coconut Red Curry Stir-Fry and Chicken Pad Thai are particularly toothsome, and should be a real treat for those avoiding soy sauce (in which wheat is a common ingredient). Gluten dodgers will also be pleased with the Bronskis' handful of pizza recipes, including thin crust, New York and Chicago-Style Deep Dish versions. The duo seem to have thought of every craving and indulgence, serving up creme brulee and cocktails, too; it's also worth noting that plenty of recipes don't call for special ingredients at all (pork tamales, Porcini-Encrusted Scallops, Garlic-Lime Skirt Steak with Cuban Mojo, etc.). This volume's impressive breadth and straightforward instructions make it an essential, horizon-broadening tool for those off gluten.
