These cook books are full of recipes for people with various food allergies. Some of them also have information about food allergies and how to manage them.
Do you love breads, cakes, pies, cookies, and other wheat products but can’t eat them because you are allergic to wheat or sensitive to gluten? Perhaps you avoid wheat because you are concerned about your weight and need to cut down on carbohydrates. If so, the solution for you is coconut flour. Coconut flour is a delicious, healthy alternative to wheat. It is high in fiber, low in digestible carbohydrate, and a good source of protein
. It contains no gluten so it is ideal for those with celiac disease
. Coconut flour can be used to make a variety of delicious baked goods, snacks
, and main dishes. It is the only flour used in most of the recipes in this book. These recipes are so delicious that you won’t be able to tell that they aren’t made with wheat. If you like foods such as German chocolate cake, apple pie, blueberry muffins, cheese
crackers, and chicken pot pie, but don’t want the wheat; you will love the recipes in this book! These recipes are designed with your health
in mind. Every recipe
is completely free of wheat, gluten, soy, trans fats, and artificial sweeteners. Coconut is naturally low in carbohydrate and recipes include both regular and reduced sugar
versions. Coconut flour provides many health benefits. It can improve digestion, help regulate blood sugar, protect against diabetes, help prevent heart disease and cancer, and aid in weight loss.
The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread
More than 200 Wheat-Free Recipes (Paperback)Buy from Amazon
Anyone suffering from an allergy
to wheat will find Hagman’s newest book a godsend. The author of three earlier gluten-free cookbooks (e.g., The Gluten-Free Gourmet), she tested and retested recipes to come up with dozens of yeast
breads and quick breads, rolls and muffins, crackers, and more for those who would otherwise be deprived of their “daily bread
.” Most of these recipes can be made either in a bread machine or by hand, and many are suitable for those with other allergies or dietary needs as well. Strongly recommended.
