While visiting my daughter in New York last summer, she suggested that I go on a gluten-free diet because I was having so many gastro-intestinal complaints. While I was there my nurse-daughter cooked gluten-free meals and it was so amazing with how well I felt. Within 2 weeks I had lost 14 pounds with no effort at all. She suggested that perhaps a permanent gluten-free diet might be in order. Wise advise!
What an adventure this has been! Trial and error and some wonderful new discoveries. Thanks to all of you gluten-free cooks for the help you have been to me in finding supplies, cookbooks, recipies, and restaurants that serve gluten-free foods.
These are some of my favorite gluten-free websites and books:
memmonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com (great non gluten-free recipes also) See links at the right.
"The Gluten-Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg
"The Gluten-Free Gourmet" and "More from the Gluten-Free Gourmet" by Bette Hagman
Your local library is a great resource for Gluten-Free Cookbooks.
All of these have been so helpful to me. I will keep posting recipes that I have tried and update you on the new websites that I find. Please feel free to share with me your finds, recipes and ideas.
