The essential diet and recipe guide for gluten-free living.
Coeliac disease is triggered by gluten in grains like wheat, barley, rye and triticale. It isn t rare. It is the most common and one of the most under-diagnosed hereditary autoimmune diseases. There is no cure. You don t outgrow it. People with coeliac disease MUST eat a gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives. But although the gluten-free diet is a lifesaver, if not well planned it can be an unhealthy diet due to the absence of grain foods and the higher fat and sugar content of many gluten-free products. And all too often it s high GI because slowly digested staples for the rest of us such as wheat-based low GI breads and breakfast cereals, pasta, and traditional oats have to be eliminated. This book is a practical guide written by experts to show how to combine a gluten-free diet with the lifelong health benefits of low GI eating.
