For years, Elisabeth Hasselbeck couldn't figure out what was making her sick. She asked doctors and consulted nutritionists, but no one seemed to have any answers. It wasn't until spending time in the Australian Outback, living off the land on the grueling Survivor TV show, that, ironically, her symptoms vanished. Returning home, she pinpointed the food that made her sick -- gluten, the binding element in wheat. By simply eliminating it from her diet, she was able to enjoy a completely normal, healthy life. But that wasn't all. Hasselbeck discovered the myriad benefits that anyone can enjoy from a gluten-free diet: from weight loss and increased energy to even the alleviation of the conditions of autism.In this all-inclusive book, Hasselbeck shares her hard-earned wisdom on living life without gluten and loving it. She gives you everything you need to know to start living a gluten-free life, from defining gluten - where to find it, how to read food labels - to targeting gluten-free products, creating G-Free shopping lists, sharing recipes, and managing G-Free living with family and friends.
The G Free Diet will also include a forward from famed Celiac Disease doctor and my doctor, Peter Green, MD. This book will be published by Center Street, a division of the Hachette Book Groupand will retail for $24.99. However, it will be on sale through Amazon.com and available for the great price of $16.49 at Ms. Celiac's Market. It seems like May will be a great month for those of us on a gluten free diet with both the release of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's book and the debut of Starbuck's gluten free Orange Valencia Cake. ~Paige
