Shauna James Ahern – well-known for her fabulous Gluten-Free Girl blog – recently released her part memoir, part gluten-free guide, appropriately titled: gluten-free girl: how I found the food that loves me back…& how you can too.
Sometimes you forget you’re reading a GF book, because the story is just so compelling. After several illnesses and a car accident that almost killed her – Ahern discovered that Celiac disease was causing her pain. Today, she looks and feels remarkable. Her story of freedom through food is witty, exciting and will no doubt bring hope to many Celiac’s.
As a non-Celiac, I enjoyed the book as both a reader and one passionate about wheat-free eating. While Ahern encourages the pleasures of dairy and milk chocolate (no-no’s for those of us with intolerances/allergies) there are still recipes that meet our requirements. The pizza crust is one I definitely plan to try.
Oh, and be sure to check out Ahern’s blog and book. GO West Coast!
