5.0 out of 5 stars **LIVING** with coeliac/celiac - not existing, 19 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gluten Free Girl: How I Found the Food That Loves Me Back... and How You Can Too (Hardcover)
I love Shauna's approach to having coeliac (or celiac - she's American). Rather than treat it as a problem, when she finds out what has been making her sick for so many years she handles gluten-free living with such enthusiasm, experiementing with lots of diferent foods and grains which coeliacs can eat, and writes about it in such a way that makes you want to try it yourself. She pans the typical American way of eating, is very much a "foodie" and tells the reader much about her life (and love)!
For several years she has been writing a food blog 'gluten-free girl' and much of the material is similar - her life, after all! But I still enjoyed the book, although I did expect more recipes, but there are loads on the blog.
So if you, or someone you know has coeliac, and you don't have time to read approx 400 back-blog entries, or if you are interested in food anyway, buy this. You will enjoy it. Oh, and it's very well written. Shauna taught writing before she committed herself to this full-time.

Good one for info on the blog , I'll be having a look at that one.

Share something back is my way so; Have you tried using Coconut oil in place of other oils or even just using it as a supplement ?
It's served me very well and providing instant energy when I've needed ( Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis and coeliacs..oh joy!) along with a plethora of vital fats/minerals .
A reasonable site for recipes I found recently : http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/ although not all suitable for my diet... there are some great ideas ! The Gluten free cookies look very good indeed ...
