I am the founder and facilitate an elimination diet program called Know Thyself Nutritional Program in the greater Philadelphia area. This is the cookbook I recommend and use. Excellent cookbook for food sensitivities. Most recipes can easily be modified slightly as needed. Read full review

I love this book. I'm on a yeast free diet and my son is on a gluten free diet. I was searching for books that would helpful for use and came across this book. I love how it breaks into breaking down flours that contain gluten and flours that are gluten free. When making items from scratch this is a wonderful book however if you don't have that much time in cooking because of a hectic work life this can be a challenge. Also you must look at your budget to because some of these items can be spendy. Because the fall gardens are so abundant with zucchini I'm now making lots of zucchini milk for the breads and baked goods. I just wish I have more time to make all the things I'd like to.
