A Complete Guide to Healthy, Gluten-Free Living
For people with celiac disease and diabetes or for those who just want to follow a gluten-free diet, Gluten-Free Recipes for People with Diabetes offers the whole package: complete meal planning instructions, tips on finding gluten-free ingredients, menus, and 75 mouthwatering, healthy recipes. Recent estimates suggest that nearly one out of every 20 people with type 1 diabetes has celiac disease, a condition that renders the body unable to process the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. People with celiac disease are unable to eat any foods that contain gluten, which is found in breads, pasta, cereals, and even unexpected foods, such as canned soups, salad dressings, and deli meats. Moreover, a large number of people have shown an interest in pursuing a gluten-free diet because they are gluten intolerant. Nancy S. Hughes and Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton have created Gluten-Free Recipes for People with Diabetes, a collection of 75 gluten-free recipes specifically designed for people with diabetes. Part cookbook, part meal-planning guide, this book offers the complete package. Readers will delight in the 75 healthy recipes that are both nutritionally sound and full of taste. The meal-planning guide teaches readers how to successfully find gluten-free products and how to adapt recipes to gluten-free versions. To make things even easier, some menus are included to give readers a head start on their healthy, new, gluten-free life!
