Weekend Cooking - Living Gluten Free for Dummies

Living Gluten-Free for Dummies: UK Edition…
 A few weeks ago I borrowed from the library this book, as we were not sure whether removing gluten from hubby's died would help the abdominal pains he was experiencing.

The blood test checking for the allergen markers were negative, but we decided to experiment with the diet in case there was any improvement.

In this case there was no improvement and hubby had his gallbladder removed last week.

This book was a really great, informative and yet easy to read book. Aimed at the UK market specifically, it discussed the amounts of items available to Coeliac patients on prescription and included details and recipes.

Having Coeliac disease is not just a condition or diet. It is a way of life that does take considerable getting use to and adjustment. Should hubby have been diagnosed with Coeliacs Disease I would have had no hesitation in buying this book.

  1. Oh, I would so miss gluten...

  2. Thanks for the review. I have a friend who was just diagnosed. I'll suggest she buys this.

  3. I have two nieces with Celiac's and there have been so much more in the way of good, tasty gluten-free food and recipes in the past few years.

    A good friend of mine has Celiac's and she says it's easy enough to find gluten-free everything in London, although it's perhaps more expensive. I think gluten-free food can be tasty for sure, but when I've had gluten-free cakes I could tell the difference.

  5. I'm so glad hubby didn't have any long term things wrong! And he's lucky to have a good wife who does her homework just in case!

  6. I hope the patient is doing well! Good he doesn't have coeliacs, that's for sure. I may look for it myself.

    1. The patient is progressing, but does seem to need reminding that he needs to rest!

  7. I got tested for this too and was relieved that it was negative - too many restrictions.
