Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE(University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book for people who have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity covers all aspects of gluten-free meal planning and gives tips on how to eat gluten-free without compromising taste.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide gluten-free meal plans to the lay population.
Audience: The book is intended for people who need a gluten-free diet for themselves or someone they know. It also is a good reference for healthcare professionals who want to learn more about a gluten-free diet. The author is a dietitian who became interested in the topic when her mother was diagnosed with celiac disease. When the author also began to have symptoms, she switched to a gluten-free diet and her symptoms disappeared.
Features: The author incorporates a primer on gluten intolerance, the reasons it occurs, and what it means to be gluten free. Excellent food charts indicate if the product is safe (gluten-free), not safe, or questionable (it may require more investigation into the food label to confirm). There is a plethora of recipes and a 30-day meal plan. The book covers hidden gluten in foods and non-food items, handling feelings regarding the diagnosis, eating a balanced diet, and dining out. To make the last easier, the book includes explanation cards in 14 different languages to describe gluten-free needs to a chef.
Assessment: Although this is not appropriate as a textbook for students, it is an excellent resource for healthcare professionals who want to become more familiar with gluten-free meal planning.

    Really Good Book

    As a student studying dietetics, Gluten Free Hassle Free has proved to be an invaluable resource to my library. This book is thorough and complete; in fact, it's opened my eyes to so many details about following a gluten-free diet which I knew little about.

    There are many recipes and meal plans that look tasty that anyone would want to try. Also the inclusion of dining out cards, which come in numerous different languages, are helpful to those dining out abroad or in local ethnic restaurants, taking the guesswork out of ordering and making eating out less stressful and more pleasurable.

    I know in the future I'll work with patients who cannot have gluten and this book has given me a great foundation and I'm sure that I will use it time and time again before (and after) graduation.

    What a fabulous book over 100 recopes, dining out cards in 14 languages, gluten-free meal
    plans, tips, gluten-free charts, nutritional information, basics of reading food labels. A must
    for anyone trying to live gluten-free, or for anyone who is trying to prepare food for
    someone who is gluten-free. When I was reading someone else's review, on th Barnes and Noble
    site they said this book was only 25 pages long, but it was more then 300 pages, they
    must have accidentally reviewed the wrong book. It is a good thing I checked it out myself
    and didn't pay attention to that review

    Most people don't have a clue what is naturally gluten free, and

    Most people don't have a clue what is naturally gluten free, and this book serves to not only emphasize how very easy it is to eat gluten free, but also how easy it would be to incorporate a gluten free diet to help with loved ones or visitors who require a special diet. You don't invite people over to your home and tell them to "brown bag it" --- and you'll never have to with this book. If you're looking to make even small changes in your diet, pick up this book and enjoy some great alternatives to gloppy gluten meals. Also works perfect if YOU are the guest and your host(ess) claims to not know a thing to cook for you. Buy an extra copy for anyone who "can't get it right" when it comes to serving you a palatable meal.
