5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the gluten sensitive 29 Jun. 2016
By Burns Well - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The focus of this book is losing weight and gaining health using two similar diet plans... the gluten-free diet and the Quinoa diet. The diets are similar, because Quinoa is a gluten-free pseudocereal, making the Quinoa diet a more specialized type of gluten free diet.

The first part of this book discusses the gluten-free diet. If you have digestive system issues or even non-digestive health issues, you may be able to benefit from a gluten-free diet. This is because, in addition to wheat allergies and celiac disease which affects 1-2% of the population, some people have gluten sensitivity. A large number of health issues have been implicated in people having gluten sensitivity, and the only way to know if you have it is to switch to a gluten-free diet and see if your negative health issues disappear. Thus, a gluten-free diet is something that should be tried by everyone at some point, or at least by people who have undiagnosed health issues, especially if they relate to your gastrointestinal system. If you feel that something is wrong, and you can't figure out what it is, a gluten-free diet may be worth a try. And if you already know you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or a wheat allergy, you should definitely be eating a gluten free diet.

The second part of this book discusses Quinoa. Quinoa, a pseudocereal, is itself considered a superfood. A pseudocereal is a grain that isn't related to the grass family. As a result, Quinoa is gluten-free. Thus, the Quinoa diet is something that would be of interest to anyone with gluten sensitivity or anyone who is interested in eating a gluten free diet. Quinoa is also much more nutritious than the average grain. According to its nutrition facts, which can be found at nutritiondata.self.com, Quinoa contains a lot of protein and has a very balanced amino acid profile. That means that Quinoa gives you the essential amino acids in the correct balance that you need. And eating a certain amount of balanced protein gives you more of the protein you need than the same amount of an unbalanced protein. In other words, Quinoa is an excellent source of protein, and is a suitable vegetarian substitute for meat. Protein cannot be stored and thus must be eaten daily. It also can't make you fat for this reason. Quinoa also provides a respectable amount of several B-vitamins, an enormous amount of manganese, and a decent amount of phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper. Quinoa is also low in calories, and provides an excellent protein to calorie ratio. This book discusses the many benefits of Quinoa before providing a number of tasty recipes containing this superfood.

This book gives you several different diets to try. The theory behind each diet is explained well, and the recipes are both delicious and varied, so as to provide you with an option for every kind of meal and snack, from dinner to dessert.

I received this book at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the recipes are not for weight loss but a lot are 8 Jun. 2016
By Maya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
By now most of those who have been looking into dieting and changing their lifestyle to try to improve
their health or lose weight have been exposed to gluten free meals. Gluten free can change our lives
quite a lot. Removing the grains from our food can improve our weight, cholesterol, sugar issues and
a lot of other health problems. The author explains what gluten is and why it needs to be removed from
the diet to improve many health conditions. There is some bad editing here and there but it is mostly a
fairly well written book. The author talks about a lot of the health conditions caused or made worse by
being over weight including sleep apnea, diabetes and arthritis to name a few. There are tips for
eating gluten free in restaurants and gluten free foods for kids as well as tips for eating gluten free
such as lots of foods that are naturally gluten free that can be eaten for snacks or meals.

The recipes are numerous and varied. Some of them would help with weight loss, but not the bulk of
them. If you are looking for recipes that use healthier ingredients and do not use wheat you are in luck.

There is a section on Quinoa which is very good. It explains what it is and the history of Quinoa as well
as the many health benefits it provides. Quinoa is a superfood and as such contains lots of protein,
calcium, other vitamins and minerals, and amino acids among other things that make it healthy. There
are a lot of good recipes to help people add Quinoa to their diet. This alone will help people lose weight
if they substitute it for the grains that turn into sugar and fat. The recipes are numerous and varied again
and are easy to understand and to prepare. My family had dinner from this book last night and it was very
much enjoyed. The dessert also came from here and it is a big hit. My kids are used to eating healthy food
and are not surprised when their meals include something new. Quinoa was not new to them, but the
recipe was.

I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars I have always loved learning about healthy eating and am always fascinated at ... 10 Sept. 2016

I have always loved learning about healthy eating and am always fascinated at how people from all over the world enjoy different kinds of foods. Studies have linked eating a typical Western diet—filled with processed meats, packaged meals, takeout food, and sugary snacks—with higher rates of depression, stress, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Eating an unhealthy diet may even play a role in the development of mental health disorders such as ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, and schizophrenia, or in the increased risk of suicide in young people.

Fruits and vegetables are low in calories and nutrient dense, which means they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Focus on eating the recommended daily minimum of five servings of fruit and vegetables and it will naturally fill you up and help you cut back on unhealthy foods.
Try to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day as deeply colored fruits and vegetables contain higher concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Add berries to breakfast cereals, eat fruit for dessert, and snack on vegetables such as carrots, snow peas, or cherry tomatoes instead of processed snack foods.
If you have never heard of the Mediterranean diet, it probably is time you Google it and learn because you will love it. Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating. Most healthy diets include fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, and limit unhealthy fats. While these parts of a healthy diet are tried-and-true, subtle variations or differences in proportions of certain foods may make a difference in your risk of heart disease.
Benefits of the Mediterranean diet
I read an article online that stated that, “Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. The diet has been associated with a lower level of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol — the "bad" cholesterol that's more likely to build up deposits in your arteries. In fact, a meta-analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality as well as overall mortality”
Armed with this information, it seems like an awesome way of eating for all age groups and a healthy way of daily eating instead of going on diets.
An article I found online gave the information below as a guide for Mediterranean diet. I hope you find it helpful.
• Eat your veggies and fruits — and switch to whole grains. An abundance and variety of plant foods should make up the majority of your meals. Strive for seven to 10 servings a day of veggies and fruits. Switch to whole-grain bread and cereal, and begin to eat more whole-gain rice and pasta products.
• Go nuts. Keep almonds, cashews, pistachios and walnuts on hand for a quick snack. Choose natural peanut butter, rather than the kind with hydrogenated fat added. Try tahini (blended sesame seeds) as a dip or spread for bread.
• Pass on the butter. Try olive or canola oil as a healthy replacement for butter or margarine. Use it in cooking. Dip bread in flavored olive oil or lightly spread it on whole-grain bread for a tasty alternative to butter. Or try tahini as a dip or spread.
• Spice it up. Herbs and spices make food tasty and are also rich in health-promoting substances. Season your meals with herbs and spices rather than salt.
• Go fish. Eat fish once or twice a week. Fresh or water-packed tuna, salmon, trout, mackerel and herring are healthy choices. Grilled fish tastes good and requires little cleanup. Avoid fried fish, unless it's sauteed in a small amount of canola oil.
• Rein in the red meat. Substitute fish and poultry for red meat. When eaten, make sure it's lean and keep portions small (about the size of a deck of cards). Also avoid sausage, bacon and other high-fat meats.
• Choose low-fat dairy. Limit higher fat dairy products such as whole or 2 percent milk, cheese and ice cream. Switch to skim milk, fat-free yogurt and low-fat cheese.
• Raise a glass to healthy eating. If it's OK with your doctor, have a glass of wine at dinner. If you don't drink alcohol, you don't need to start. Drinking purple grape juice may be an alternative to wine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little difficult to get the kids to try quinoa...Once they tried the chili & chicken burrito ... ready to try more quinoa dishes 11 July 2016
By C Anne Chance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We have been trying lots of gluten free recipes not only to lose weight but to help with various digestive problems. This book covers both the Gluten Free Diet and the Quinoa Diet.

In the first section, it explains what gluten is and why removing it from one's the diet can improve many health conditions. Then there are suggestions about switching to a gluten free diet and ,of course, recipes. Some of the most helpful tips in the book deal with eating gluten free in restaurants and getting the kids to eat gluten free. If you introduce a gluten free diet (including healthy snacks) to children when they are young it seems a lot easier to get them to develop healthy eating habits which in turn can lead to a future with few health problems. Surprisingly there are many foods that are naturally gluten free that kids really love as snacks or meals.

I had heard lot of people talking about the Quinoa diet but didn't really know what is was until I read this book. The second section covers Quinoa (a gluten-free pseudocereal--a grain not in the grass family) in detail. Turns out that Quinoa is more nutritious than the average grain and is considered a superfood. It contains a lot of protein, iron and many other vitamins and minerals as well as amino acids and as you can imagine provides many health benefits. It makes a great substitute to wheat grain.

There are numerous quick and easy healthy recipes in this book that will be enjoyed by most ,if not all the family , gluten sensitive or not. The Cheesy Mexican Chicken was one of the first dishes we tried. It was delicious! We have been having the High Energy Breakfast Smoothies in the mornings. It's a great (& tasty) way to start your day.
It was a little more difficult to get the kids to try the quinoa dishes. Once they tried the chili and chicken burritos, they got on board and were ready to try more quinoa dishes. Apparently one of their friend's mother had made some casserole or such with quinoa was it was ...well not a success. I recommended that she try some of these recipes.

I received this book free in exchange for an unbiased review. No attempt was made to influence my opinion nor was it required that the review be positive. I found a lot of very helping information in this book and truly enjoyed many of the recipes.
