There are many gluten-free cookbooks on the market, but none like "Goodbye Gluten " Roughly one-third of people in the US are either gluten intolerant or have celiac disease, and for these people, eating gluten can make them sickvery sick. The engaging team of Kim Stanford and Bill Backhaus represents both these audiences, and together they have developed over two hundred flavorful and tempting recipes for all types of dishes, from appetizers to desserts.
"Goodbye Gluten" is both a cookbook and shopping guide for people who do not want gluten in their diets and are tired of missing out on their favorite foods. In each recipe the authors use everyday brand names that can be found at your local grocery store, which means you no longer have to check labels to decipher if a product is gluten-free. Another appeal of the book is its use of Texas and Tex-Mex flavors to add a kick to what can be bland fare.
"Goodbye Gluten" makes it easy to live the gluten-free lifestyle, because it is not just a diet, but a lifestyle. With thirty color photos of the completed dishes, even the most dedicated bread-lover will want to get into the kitchen and start cooking.
