Colleague Marlisa Brown, RD, CDE has written a gluten-free guide from the perspective of a registered dietitian and a gluten-free girl and if you are a newly diagnosed gluten-free girl you may want to check this one out: Gluten-Free, Hassle Free: A Simple, Sane, Dietitian-Approved Program for Eating Your Way Back to Health .
Marlisa and I met several years ago when she was doing a gluten-free presentation at the International restaurant and Foodservice Show at the Javitz center where I also speak about food allergies (and will be doing again this year with FAAN's, Julia Bradsher, Ph.D., M.B.A., Chief Executive Officer.) I was truly honored when she asked that I write a foreword to her book, Gluten-Free, Hassle Free: A Simple, Sane, Dietitian-Approved Program for Eating Your Way Back to Health (Disclosure: I wrote the foreword to her book.)
Many of you who have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, celiac disease, or non-celiac gluten-intolerance weren’t given much else, like what to do, how to eat, what nutrients are needed, what’s missed when you cut out the protein found in wheat barely and rye. Marlisa is here to fill those gaps in a quick but chunky read packed with a ton of dietary information that only a RD with 25 years experience can tell you. I especially found the vitamin section helpful. A few months back there had been a ton of tweets on Twitter.com about the loss of nutrients on a GF diet, started, I believe, by the Gluten-free Goddess herself, Miss Karina (a wonderful blog if you don’t already know her).
