An excellent book for coeliacs who don't get enough fibre in their diet. Great recipes & healthy food!You will need to shop for the ingredients, but it is worth the change. The muesli is eaten by myself and my partner who is not a coeliac and he loves it. Great tasty food, common sense reading and excellent information.

I've been gluten-free for six years, but only just realised that gluten-free can also mean high GI. So, as I stood in the health food shop looking at packets of millet flakes, quinoa, and all sorts of different non-wheat grains prepared in different ways, I wanted to know their GI values - so I bought this book expecting it to have a really comprehensive section on the GI values of gluten-free grains. Instead, there's hardly anything about it!
There are tables of GI values, but pages and pages of products that don't have any GI value, what a waste of space - they could have just said vegetables and meats (except x and x for eg.) have no GI.
A lot of the recipes and GI values also conflict with other low-GI books I've got, and there's even a recipe for sushi - where on earth can you find low Gi sushi rice? Surely all rice you can use for sushi is high GI?
It's full of unhelpful,conflicting ideas like that.
