Even with the surge in “better” gluten-free foods — are you still missing your favorite comfort foods? Your recipes from childhood haven't turned out quite right when you've tried making them Gluten Free?
We've been there – we can help, and we can tell you—it can be better than you ever dreamed.
We don't gloss over the 'guts' of gluten free baking – there ARE some differences – but in the end Gluten-free is as good—if not better—and we want to share that with you.
Make those old Family recipes again with what you learn on Page 22… and no one will know they're Gluten Free!
If you’re picking up this digital book, you’re probably experiencing some of the same things my family has as we’ve transitioned into a gluten free lifestyle. Many people have stereotyped gluten-free foods as boring, tasteless, crumbly, and inferior to their gluten-filled counterparts. We’ve gone through the same thing, and we can tell you—it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve found that gluten-free can be as good—if not better—and we want to share that with you. We’re all in this journey together – we don’t settle for anything less than the best flavor, texture, and experience; and we don’t want you to settle for less either. Along with this holiday guide, check out the resources found on my blog at www.be-gluten-free.com. I’ll help you have a holiday free from worry about missing out on your favorite recipes and experiences.
I’ve been dealing with digestive issues for as long as I can remember, but I didn’t think it was abnormal because my mom suffered the same things. When I started feeling ill more often, it was time to start researching why that might be. Reading about Celiac Disease, I quietly prayed that it wasn’t what was causing my issues. In 2008, I decided to go off gluten to test if—by eliminating gluten—I could feel better. The results were amazing, and I’ve never gone back. My recommendation is this: if you think you have a gluten intolerance, get tested before going off gluten. You see, due to eliminating gluten without a test for Celiac Disease, I haven’t been formally diagnosed. This means that I’d need to go back on gluten for three months just to get an accurate test. I won’t go there. My genetic testing shows that I do have the gene for Celiac Disease, and that’s enough for me. Making myself miserable for three months to get a diagnosis isn’t something I’m willing to do.
I have been living gluten free since October 2008. It is my hope that by sharing my experiences and what I have worked through regarding gluten intolerance, I’ll be able to help others realize that living free of gluten can actually be liberating. In this little book I’ll share the wonderful side of being gluten free, and I’ll dispel the myth that eating gluten free is nothing but “tasteless cardboard” with the “texture of sand.” It’s my opinion that gluten-free food can taste delicious as any other food; and anyone can lead the ultimate gluten-free lifestyle.
