Overview

This cookbook companion to the New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly serves up 150 great tasting wheat-free recipes to help readers lose weight and beat disease.


Wheat Belly shook the foundations of the diet world when author and renowned cardiologist William Davis revealed that an epidemic of adverse health effects-ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the buildup of stubborn belly fat (so-called "wheat bellies")-could be banished forever with one simple step: Saying goodbye to wheat. The Wheat Belly Cookbook takes readers to the next level with over 150 fresh and delicious wheatless recipes, including Breakfast Quesadillas, Braised Pot Roast with Vegetables, velvety Peanut Butter Pie-and surprising wheat-free hits like Blueberry French Toast, Bruschetta Chicken on Angel Hair, Spaghetti Bolognese and velvety Scones.


Additionally, readers will also learn how to:

  • Dodge symptoms of "wheat withdrawal" experienced by about 10 percent of dieters, ensuring a smooth transition to this new healthy eating plan
  • Set up their wheat-free kitchen, including important prep techniques, shopping lists, and strategies to get the whole family on board
  • Avoid regaining a wheat belly while eating out at restaurants and parties-plus exciting meal ideas guests will love

This is not only a cookbook....far from it. This book gives all kinds of advice about foods to choose. I have tried the wraps, the bread, tortillas, pancakes, and some of the recipes using cauliflower. All are excellent. I have lost eight pounds since eating this way. I thought I had learned a lot about how to eat, but this book taught me even more things I had not read anywhere else. You will be helped by this book.

I thought I knew a lot about GMOs and crappy food...this book took me to a whole new level. The powers-that-be have totally ruined most of our foods and soils for the sake of financial gain (theirs, not our). One of the best ways to fight back is through knowledge. I don't know what I can say to encourage you more to educate yourself about wheat, not just gluten. My health is returning, along with my ideal weight but that's just the beginning. Quality of life is the touchstone...and the quality of your child's life. Parents of children with attention problems, communication problems, digestive problems...take heed.

Some of these recipes need some tweeking. Using the prescribed proportions of ingredients in the pizza crust recipe it is impossible to roll it out between parchment paper.It's too wet. Also, the poppy- seed pancakes require more buttermilk or they're too thick. Not like a pancake batter. I don't believe these recipes were kitchen tested.

I BEGAN FOLLOWING THE RECOMMENDATIONS DR. DAVIS EXPLAINS IN HIS FIRST BOOK, "WHEAT BELLY" AND I AM A BELIEVER AND HAVE EXPERIENCED BETTER HEALTH, BETTER DIGESTION, AND WEIGHT LOSS...THOUGH, QUITE HONESTLY, WEIGHT LOSS IS SECONDARY TO THE KNOWLEDGE GAINED AND THE HEALTH IMPROVEMENT. I WAS WAITING FOR "WHEAT BELLY COOKBOOK" TO COME OUT AND, I HAVE TO SAY, I HAVE BEEN MORE INTERESTED IN READING ALL OF THE IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION HE PROVIDES THAN IN TRYING THE RECIPES. THE ONE RECIPE I TRIED, CHICKEN CURRY, WAS VERY GOOD. TRULY...IF YOU ARE SEEKING "HEALTH", PLEASE BUY BOTH BOOKS!

I found the details provided in support of his theory compelling for making the switch, the guidelines for setting up my kitchen most helpful, the recipes easy to follow, the dishes tried delicious & satisfying.

So far everything I have tried has been great and easy. I would highly recommend this to anyone, even if you eat wheat!

I'd bought the nook version because it had been recommended but a cookbook needs to be in paper.... I love the book!

Some of the recipes need work. So far the Walnut Raisin Bread is the best and the Pancakes are just the worst. The author makes a good case for eliminating wheat from your diet, but as a vegetarian, a lot of your choices are eliminated, since many veggie products use wheat. Be prepared to cook and bake all the time!

And why I noticed I just ate despite knowing I wasn't really hungry. When I make these meals I have no negative side effects, I'm full for hours with no need to snack.

The text part gets pretty technical in places, but the recipes are fantastic. They are sorted not only for gluten-free, but for lower calorie content. So often gluten free recipes are high in calories, so this is a bonus! Love it!

I have been wheat free for almost 7 weeks and feel so much better. I sleep better, have more joy and energy. I didn't know how bad I felt until I feel/felt great! I am gluten sensitive and have duypuytren's contracture in my hands which is better! I cannot recommend enough that you read this book, and the recipes are an excellent bonus!

Very disappointed.  Tried the coconut pancakes.  Followed ingredients and measurements very carefully.  Couldn't get a whisk through it, had to keep adding liquid.  Ended up with wasteful mess.  Very reluctent to try other recipes.  Very disappointed as they souned great.

This is an addition to the Wheat Belly book if you decide to follow it. It provides some of the same information of the original book about use of various ingredients... and there are several good recipes. I do wish there were more recipes - maybe there will be another soon. I thought the replacement of the flours with chickpea for the bread tasted more like biscuits than bread... but I love the almond flour pancakes.

Most ingredients are available in our supermarkets. Easy to follow recipes.

The first half of this book explains the problems with wheat and grains. Gives you a good understanding of the issues at hand without having your eyes glaze over with too much science or biochemistry. The recipes are very good - includes lots of things you actually want to eat. I have recommended this book to many people and have even given it to a few friends.

I hesitated between 3 & 4 stars but ultimately chose 4 because it's so hard to find wheat-free recipes that don't rely on high-carb substitutes like potato starch. I've tried 10 recipes so far, and my favorites are Date-Nut Quick Bread, Carrot Muffins, Flax Seed Wraps, Better Than Mashed Potatoes, Homemade Turkey Sausage Patties, and Wheat-Free Pancakes (I tried the almond flour ones, not the coconut ones). The success stories are inspiring, but they could have left out the ones from the people who had only been eating wheat-free fora few days. ANybody can keep this up for a few days, but it's hard to keep up this amount of cooking all the time.

This book is very informative and easy to read but I am finding it a bit difficult to find the items needed to make a loaf of bread. Also, it is hard to find bread not made from wheat. Keep trying!

I have tried many of the recipes and plan to try many more. The food is excellent and leaves you feeling great not weighted down.
