Gluten is a component of many types of grains including wheat, rye, oats, and barley. People that suffer from celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders must follow a diet that is completely free of gluten for life! Consuming a gluten-free diet on a daily basis is not an easy task and can be quite confusing. This type of diet requires that you approach eating with a different mentality. Gluten can be hard to detect when it is hidden in unfamiliar forms or used within ingredients in foods. People that either follow or care for someone who follows a gluten-free diet need the proper education and guidance to make the diet manageable as well as healthy.

Gluten-free for a Healthy Life provides all the information you need to make understanding and following a gluten-free diet easier and healthy. The book gives readers a better understanding of why certain people need to follow a gluten-free diet and what types of foods and ingredients contain gluten. It includes tips on planning gluten-free meals and on dealing with children on gluten-free diets. This book also contains recipes, a listing of cookbooks, and numerous helpful resources, including Websites, support groups, and food companies. There is also a section where Tessmer answers the most frequently asked questions regarding celiac disease and living a gluten-free life.

Gluten-free for a Healthy Life can help take the frustration and confusion out of following a gluten-free diet and make it part of your normal everyday life.
