Review: The Gluten-Free Revolution

 About The Book

An expanded, revised, and exhaustively updated 20th anniversary edition of the book that fired the first shot—a comprehensive and entertaining guide to living gluten-free

Way ahead of its time, the original edition of this book, Against the Grain, was the first book of its kind: a funny, supportive, and absolutely essential handbook for gluten-free living. With two successful editions and countless devoted fans, this book has helped thousands of gluten-free readers follow their diets with creativity, resourcefulness, and, always, good humor. The Gluten-Free Revolution is fully revised and updated with the newest resources and information, and is packed with authoritative, practical advice for every aspect of living without gluten. With her signature wit and style, Lowell guides readers through the intricacies of shopping; understanding labels, from cosmetics to prescription drugs; strategies for eating out happily and preparing food safely at home; advice about combining gluten-free eating with any other diet, like gluten-free-paleo and gluten-free-dairy-free; negotiating complicated emotional and interpersonal reactions to your new diet; and includes fabulous gluten-free recipes from the best chefs in the world, including Thomas Keller, Rick Bayless, Alice Waters, Bobby Flay, and Nigella Lawson, among many others. The Gluten-Free Revolution remains the ultimate and indispensable resource for navigating your gluten-free life.

The Friday #56

"Up to now, there has been much disagreement in the scientific community and only anecdotal evidence from parents about  whether or not the gluten-free-casein-free diet really helps children with this condition."


Do you like cookbooks? I sure do and I have a mountain of them. I usually devour them, while experimenting with the recipes, and then making an index card of my favorite food meal to use for family and friends. Then I like to pass the book along to a friend. I wonder... do you have a favorite cookbook that you use over and over? With this one, I must admit I was not familiar with all the details about a Gluten-Free diet. Are you familiar with Celiac Disease and does gluten bother you?


My Review 


This is the best home guide and travel abroad manual for those choosing to navigate their gluten-free life successfully. I am new to the subject and have had my curiosity deeply satisfied with an enormous amount of documented beneficial medical facts and real life experience testimony shared from the author. I found much of the information easy to understand with down to earth facts and spun with good old fashion humor! I am looking forward to sampling and can't wait to try the many delicious recipes offered inside. As I begin my gluten-free journey, I am grateful to have this fantastic food Bible in my hands. It's just what I need! Jax Peters Powell has written and shared an evergreen testimony of truth with us from her heart that will indeed benefit and revolutionize a healthy community of family and friends for a very long time. I highly recommend this one!

5/5 stars.
