Healthy Gluten-Free Eating

UK Publisher: Kyle Cathie

Coeliac disease is a life-long condition caused by a reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other similar proteins found in rye, barley and oats.

The symptoms can start at any age: in children a failure to thrive, irritability, diarrhoea and vomiting; in adults anaemia, diarrhoea, weight-loss, fatigue and abdominal pain. There is at present no cure for coeliac disease, but by following a gluten-free diet for life the symptoms will disappear. On a less serious note, a wheat-free diet is also a trendy dietary and lifestyle choice, which can help reduce weight, bloating and indigestion.

This is the first cookbook to be created by a chef, in consultation with a nutritionist, especially for coeliacs. This book contains over 100 gluten-free recipes that have been created to tempt your tastebuds whilst managing the symptoms of coeliac disease. A gluten-free diet is also a particularly restrictive diet and this book will help you to cook gourmet-quality meals for friends and family.
