Easy Gluten-free Lunches and Snacks
You didn't ask for it and you didn't know it was going to happen you. You were just minding your own business snacking down your seemingly harmless daily bread (whole wheat because you're a bit if a health nut) and the occasional doughnut because you have to enjoy life too. Then it started one or more weird symptoms; sense of not feeling well; a red-raw rash pops up here and there on your body; your stomach feels like it's been mule kicked; and you are experiencing a slight moodiness that bids you to club your husband in the head with a shovel and and bury him in the back yard beside the roses. You did what most of us do in the same situation and headed off to the doctor to get some blood tests done and then you are given the news, "you have an intolerance to gluten."
This book is based on the idea of preparing simple, easy, and for the most part healthy lunch and snack choices that are also gluten-free. They may even be vegan and/or lactose-free, definitely no corn, bean or soy products. And where possible they are as inexpensive as possible, since being celiac or gluten intolerant can get expensive. Since the focus is on simple and easy the fewest ingredients are used and there is one all purpose inexpensive (well as an inexpensive as gluten-free flour can be) flour mix. This is of course because the author takes no joy in confusing the heck out of cooks with a different flour mix for each and every recipe. You will also not find weird and wacky ingredient lists to be 'different.'
Included in the book are recipes for bread, hamburger buns, wraps, pita, tacos and crackers that are cheaper than buying them helping celiac and gluten intolerant people with their food budgets. The recipes are easy to make and use the fewest ingredients.
Allen believes in keeping it simple and that it is healthier to cook from scratch, as well as, financially more sustainable. This book was created to share the simple tricks learned in the hope of preventing others from going years and years without decent bread products among other things.
So here are the author's secrets to share with the world in this simple cookbook. Hoping they work for you, as well as, they have worked for Allen in her totally gluten-free kitchen.
