"Shauna's food, the ignition of healthy with delicious, explodes with flavor—proof positive that people who choose to eat gluten-free can do it with passion, perfection, and power."
—John La Puma, MD, New York Times bestselling co-author of The RealAge Diet and Cooking the RealAge Way

"A breakthrough first book by a gifted writer not at all what I expected from a story about living with celiac disease. Foodies everywhere will love this book. Celiacs will make it their bible."
—Linda Carucci, author of Cooking School Secrets for Real World Cooks and IACP Cooking Teacher of the Year, 2002

An entire generation was raised to believe that cooking meant opening a box, ripping off the plastic wrap, adding water, or popping it in the microwave. Gluten-Free Girl, with its gluten-free healthful approach, seeks to bring a love of eating back to our diets. Living gluten-free means having to give up traditional bread, beer, pasta, as well as the foods where gluten likes to hide—such as store-bought ice cream, chocolate bars, even nuts that might have been dusted with flour. However, Gluten-Free Girl shows readers how to say yes to the foods they can eat. Written by award-winning blogger Shauna James, who became a interested in food once she was diagnosed with celiac disease and went gluten-free, Gluten-Free Girl is filled with funny accounts of the author’s own life including wholesome, delicious recipes, this book will guide readers to the simple pleasures of real, healthful food. Includes dozens of recipes like salmon with blackberry sauce, sorghum bread, and lemon olive oil cookies as well as resources for those living gluten-free.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
* Blogger Ahern's story sheds light on celiac disease, a little-known and difficult-to-diagnose autoimmune condition. Those afflicted cannot digest gluten, a protein in wheat, barley, rye, and related grains. Ahern explains how she learned of her malady and found that she was able to enjoy food while avoiding gluten. She even met and married a chef. This entertaining memoir includes gluten-free gourmet recipes. (Library Journal, February 1, 2008)

    BORING

    I purchased this almost a year ago. I have tried reading it 2 times.. Its a very boring read, much like a diarie. Not the least bit interesting, only the mentions of the local area. As of now its in my donation box, partially read. While I can relate to the process of relearning to cook and eat with celiac, which I have, I found other books to be much better.

    Ignore the negative reviews

    I absolutely love this book for both its diary-like entries and love story. It allows people an easy introduction into gluten- free eating and empowered cooking. Since reading the book i have become a blog follower of shauna's and can' t get enough. Thanks for a great easy read for the cold winter months.

    Great book!!!!

    If you are thinking about embracing a gluten-free lifestyle, I HIGHLY recommend Shauna's book. She delightfully takes you on her journey to gluten-free-ness. She is thoughtful and witty. Her style of writing makes this book a take-along-to-the-beach or a read-on-your-lunch-break kind of book. :)

    Condescending, Pretentious, Gloppy Recipes and Love Story

    First of all, this writer obviously imagines that she is so much better and smarter than I am that I was turned off immediately. Secondly, she spends half of the book mocking the food her parents served her as a child. Okay, WE GET IT...You ate the same diet we all did. Fine, they did they best they could. Thirdly, her recipes are ridiculously ill conceived, sloppy, and difficult. I am interested in a book with recipes that will never fail. I have tried every bread recipe in this book twice and each time I have met with disaster, and I am an experienced baker. Don't waste your money. Also, if you are charmed by adolescent outpouring of The Great Love she shares with her husband you will adore this book; however, I simply turn to my 8th grade diaries when I feel the need to read gushing descriptions of perfect love.

    great insight - an inspiration

    I could totally relate to this book. Her life with Celiac's disease (undiagnosed) was remarkably parallel to mine. Her passion for food and travel took away some of the scary part of being gluten free for me. She got me up and cooking.
    I am now a fan!!
