Editorial Reviews

Today's Diet and Nutrition Magazine
There's no longer a reason for anyone diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance to struggle for information.
Sacramento Book Review - Elizabeth Humphrey
Many are being diagnosed with celiac disease and being forced to give up gluten. Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide by Alexandra Anca, a registered dietitian who holds a master's degree in food science, with Theresa Santandrea-Cull should probably be a reference for those faced with that dietary change. As such, the book spends the first of five parts explaining the celiac disease, its symptoms and its effects on one's diet. The next section introduces the steps one must go through in providing a gluten-free environment and how to prepare for this lifestyle change. Part three tackles the ins and outs of providing the body with essential nutrients while having to replace items in one's diet. Part four is an easy-to-read and thorough look at a month-long meal plan utilizing many of the recipes set forth in the book's part five. Much more than a cookbook sharing a unique take on bread recipes, Complete Gluten-Free Diet & Nutrition Guide details the management of an enjoyable gluten-free way of living. The book focuses on the positives by giving lists of what can be eaten in a gluten-free diet.
Booklist - Ilene Cooper
Although the title focuses on gluten-free diets, this readable book is also a primer on celiac disease... The authors admit that gluten-free living isn't easy, but they insist their diet can be "simple" and "delicious." ... A good place to start for those just finding out why their stomachs hurt.
Sarasota Herald-Tribune - Linda Brandt
Alexandra Anca explains the causes of celiac disease and addresses the challenges faced by folks who need to cook without gluten. It includes labeling information, tips for gluten-proofing a kitchen, and an aisle-by-aisle shopping guide to foods in three categories: avoid, be suspicious and enjoy. The second and third parts of the book are recipes and meal plans for celiacs and those who cook for them.
HealthNews.com - Susan Brady
An excellent source of both information and recipes.... The book is a wealth of knowledge, covering the basics, foods to avoid, how to shop, maintaining nutrition, and both recipes and meal plans.
Cook That Book cookthatbook.com
Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide written by Alexandra Anca with Theresa Santandrea-Cull is a thorough beginner manual to celiac disease. Alexandra Anca is a certified dietician, and she has put together a well thought out guide for the celiac. The first 136 pages of the book contain descriptions of celiac disease, additional associated illnesses, and vitamin deficiencies typically attributed to this particular disease. There are health charts, aisle by aisle shopping lists, a comprehensive description of a gluten-free diet, along with in-depth explanations of what foods are high in protein and fiber and tips on how to combat vitamin deficiencies. She includes the Canada Food Guide and a helpful Vegetarian Food Guide Rainbow. There is a chapter dedicated to gluten-free meal guides based on charts for men and women, varying ages, and activity levels. This would be a great book if you are just learning the ropes for gluten-free eating, or if you would like to have a meal plan that will help you loose weight without gluten. This is really a great all encompassing nutritional reference book. Even a veteran celiac could learn a thing or two from Alexandra Anca.
Times Gazette timesgazette.com - Pat Lawrence
Very useful additional information, dietary suggestions and tips along with full nutritional values for all their recipes. In addition to shopping recommendations and food profiles, the "Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide" provides a 30-day meal plan and over a hundred recipes, from lasagna to chicken pot pie to chocolate chip cookies. Good reading, with or without a vested gluten interest.
Mom Most Traveled mommosttraveled.com
Like many people in the US these days, I packed up and moved into the Gluten Free camp shortly after Christmas. I am not a celiac, but avoiding gluten has meant a positive change in my skin, hair, health, digestion, mental clarity, and energy level. Yee-haw! I do wonder if this has to do with gluten or more with the ways grain products are processed and enhanced with additives in our modern society. The Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide: With a 30-Day Meal Plan and Over 100 Recipes provides a wealth of information about: Celiac disease basics, from what causes celiac disease to how it is diagnosed to what effect the disease has on an individual's quality of life. Managing celiac disease, including dietary therapies, food guides, specific foods to avoid, foods to enjoy, nutritional supplements and living with celiac disease. Gluten-free meal plans, including a 30-day meal plan that provides an entire month of meals and snacks in an easy-to-understand format. Healthy gluten-free recipes, including breakfasts, breads and muffins, soups, salads, pasta, meat, poultry, vegetarian and vegan entrees and desserts. Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide provides dietary and nutritional guidelines along with 100 tantalizing recipes that can be enjoyed by everyone, not just those who are trying to manage celiac disease. The recipes! With deliciousness like Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti, you don't have to feel sorry for yourself!
