I received the book Against the Grain to review from Blogging for Books. All opinions are my own.
Over the past couple of years I’ve been making a lot of lifestyle changes to improve my health. I started going to the gym on a regular basis and have been slowing altering my diet. One of the biggest things has been cutting out gluten as much as possible.
I’ve noticed that most foods with gluten in them hurt my stomach and make me feel tired. So for the most part, I avoid breads, pastas and the like.
The one thing I have a hard time cutting out is desserts. I have a serious sweet tooth! Lately I’ve been trying to find some healthier alternatives. I recently received the book Against the Grain: Extraordinary Gluten-Free Recipes Made from Real, All-Natural Ingredients. It’s full of recipes for all my favorites, but without the gluten.
If you are trying to cut back on gluten but are having a hard time giving up your favorites, this is the cookbook for you! It remakes all sorts of dishes that would typically be off-limits for someone eating gluten free.
This cookbook is filled with breads, pastas, pizzas, donuts, cakes and cookies. All of which are made without grain! It introduces you to several flour alternatives that can make a gluten free lifestyle so much easier.
I’m definitely going to be giving some of the other recipes in this book a try soon! I’ve got my eye on the Lemon Thyme-Summer Squash Ravioli to try next! Doesn’t that sound delicious?
