Rated 4 out of 5 by from This book is a Great One! This book is definitely good for people with a bunch of problems, not just SCD types! I suffer from chronic Candida and while this book does feature recipes with honey and a few other natural sweeteners I know that it is possible to adjust most of the recipes in here OR simply avoid them altogether. (If you're not into adjusting recipes, you might want to rethink this book.)

Read from the Book

IntroductionWhen we approached Whitecap Books back in 2003 with the concept for our first book, Grain-Free Gourmet: Delicious Recipes for Healthy Living, we were touched by their leap of faith as they decided to be the first mainstream publishing company to put out a grain-free cookbook. In April 2006, much to our surprise and delight, Whitecap asked for a second book -- armed with a mandate to push the boundaries of creativity and culinary indulgence, we set to work. A few months later, we had developed a set of recipes that we knew would rival those in our first book.Coming up with the theme of this book was simple. After years of teaching cooking classes, being interviewed, and providing counseling, the most common questions still relate to mealtimes: What do you have for breakfast? What do you have for lunch? What do you have for dinner? Whether or not these questions are raised because people are curious or at a complete loss, we knew this was the topic that we had to tackle for our second foray into the culinary world.In Everyday Grain-Free Gourmet: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, we not only provide entire meal ideas, but are also more adventurous (think lactose-free, grain-free sandwich wraps, gnocchi, peanut butter truffles, and cappuccino dacquoise). We even demystify fat and provide information about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) that we gathered from the original research archives of renowned New York pediatrician Dr. Sidney Haas from the 1920s to the 1960s. We have also added a list of our favorite tools that will make life in the kitchen easier, and we include conveniences that received high praise from our first book, such as a guide for storing food, suggested substitutions for people who don't follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and a list of cheeses that are virtually lactose-free.We hope that Everyday Grain-Free Gourmet: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner finds a prominent spot (next to our first book!) in your kitchen. -Jodi and Jenny
