Overview

Recent estimates suggest that nearly one out of every 20 people with type 1 diabetes has celiac disease, a condition that renders the body unable to process the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. People with celiac disease are unable to eat any foods that contain gluten, which is found in breads, pasta, cereals, and even unexpected foods, such as canned soups, salad dressings, and deli meats. Moreover, a large number of people have shown an interest in pursuing a gluten-free diet because they are gluten intolerant.

Nancy S. Hughes and Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton have created Gluten-Free Recipes for People with Diabetes, a collection of 75 gluten-free recipes specifically designed for people with diabetes. Part cookbook, part meal-planning guide, this book offers the complete package. Readers will delight in the 75 healthy recipes that are both nutritionally sound and full of taste. The meal-planning guide teaches readers how to successfully find gluten-free products and how to adapt recipes to gluten-free versions. To make things even easier, some menus are included to give readers a head start on their healthy, new, gluten-free life!

Library Journal
10/01/2013
This collection of gluten-free and diabetes-friendly grocery lists, menus, and recipes can help readers cope with an overwhelming double diagnosis of celiac disease and type 1 diabetes. Hughes (The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook)—a prolific recipe developer who's worked with Weight Watchers, the American Heart Association, Betty Crocker, and other organizations—incorporates practical information such as how to read food labels, avoid cross-contamination, educate family members, and plan for travel and eating out. Recipes that include Spanish olive and herbed hummus, chop-free chili, and kid-friendly lazy chicken quesadillas, many made mostly of packaged ingredients, will appeal most to readers who prefer quick and easy cooking. VERDICT Recommended for busy and inexperienced cooks who would like an unintimidating introduction to diet planning.
