A Woderful Resource!,
This review is from: No Naughties: Sweet Treats Without Sugar, Wheat, Gluten and Yeast (Perfect Paperback)
It is stated that some 6 - 8 % of all UK children have a proven food allergy (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, 2011) and that an estimated 21 million adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy with some 10 million adults suffering from more than one allergy (Mintel, 2010).
Given that the range and extent of allergies to food types in on the increase it is becoming ever more important that people are offered good, wholesome and tasty alternatives.
In 'No Naughties' Tarja Moles seeks to address the problem that many sufferers from food allergies face which is how to keep your diet both interesting and varied - especially in the case of sweets-loving children.
The book focuses upon sugar, wheat and yeast allergies in the main and offers a tantalising and mouth-watering collection of recipes which the author has developed herself. These include cakes, ice cream, pancakes, biscuits and sorbets. The range of recipes includes meals for different periods of the day - from breakfast through to supper.
However, No Naughties goes a lot further than this for it includes valuable information on the ingredients themselves, where they can be obtained as well as organisations that deal with specific dietary issues.
This is a terrific book! It stays away from the more regular alternative food types such as olive margarine and soya milk. (Most of our soya products are sourced from genetically-modified soya beans and there is a growing belief that these are the source of many other dietary and digestive issues.)
It is a book that is clear to read and convenient to refer to whilst cooking, it is extremely well well-presented and leaves the reader feeling that the author has thoroughly engaged with the challenging issue of food allergies and how to stop them from controlling your life.
I whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone looking for a real resource of information and ideas to make food fun and palatable once again!
