Product Description


* 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)

From the Inside Flap

Do you love food? Do you, or someone you love, have to avoid certain foods? Imagine passing on the pizza during your honeymoon in Rome, or skipping the sugar cookie s your sister makes at Christmas. Shauna James Ahern understands your pain-literally. After years of inexplicable exhaustion and endless medical tests, she found relief in her diagnosis of celiac disease. After giving up gluten, she learned how to live well and love food more fully. Now you can, too!

In Gluten-Free Girl, Shauna James Ahern shares the journey that changed her from a typical Gen-X processed-food junkie to a fun-loving foodie who enjoys cooking and living gluten-free-naturally. Readers from around the world have followed her stories and insights on her award-winning blog, Now she shows you how to say yes to a gluten-free lifestyle, too, and embrace a whole new world of fresh foods and flavors.

Even if you never learned to cook, Shauna shows you how to feel comfortable in the kitchen. You'll discover (or rediscover) the kick of ginger, the irresistible crunch of fresh greens, and other delicious delights. She gives you dozens of terrific recipes that every9one will love, such as Curried Carrot Soup, Chicken Thighs Braised in Pomegranate Molasses, Crusty Sorghum Bread, and Fig Cookies. Her dishes focus on ingredients that are naturally gluten-free. She has not simply reworked recipes and plugged in gluten-free substitutes-these are original recipes. You'll also find important guidance on navigating everyday life without being "glutenized," from reading between the lines of food labels to traveling and eating out safely and successfully.

Enlivened with funny accounts of Shauna's experiences, this book is as entertaining to read as it is to prop up in the kitchen. Whether she's reminiscing about the Wonder bread and Fried-bologna sandwiches of her childhood or misusing on the pork-chop -shaped mouse pad she won at a professional cooking conference, her stories are lively and interesting.

Part memoir, part best friend giving advice, part cookbook-and all inspiring-Gluten-Free Girl will put the spring back in your step and your diet, one delicious meal at a time.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a recipe book for GF cooking, this is not it. If you are looking for a how-to book for living GF, this is, likewise, not it. What it is, however, is a totally passionate, joyful and poignant memoir of a foodie with celiac as she finds her way to a healthy, energetic life. It is a pretty strong condemnation of the way over-processed, fast-food, white flour and sugar nightmare that is the way so many of us eat, or have eaten. But, it is not a bitter story. Rather is it an optimistic and delighted discovery of the great and glorious world of healthy foods out there. Admittedly, the author is an over-the-top foodie; I can't imagine myself going into raptures over the tastes of different olive oils. But, even dialed-back to the real-world of many of us, this book offers ideas, optimism and inspiration. It is well worth reading for that.

And, BTW, it is well written and a fun and easy read.

Everyone should own this book. This book is very nicely done and is a good resource with its beautiful recipes and photos. I bought this book especially for my sister who has severe gluten sensitivity. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to eat gluten-free.

I really enjoyed this book because it mirrored some of my own experience with gluten--I love Shauna's descriptions of food (both good and bad for her) and how the recipes come directly out of the narrative.

This is not strictly speaking a cook book, it is not (by strictest standard) a self-help book, but her memoir and advice are very useful for someone with gluten intolerance and her writing style is very engaging. Her attitude about food is fantastic--she's not deprived, she's an explorer.
