Do you, or someone you love, have to avoid certain foods? Imagine passing on the pizza during your honeymoon in Rome, or skipping the sugar cookies your sister makes at Christmas. Shauna James Ahern understands your pain - literally. After years of inexplicable exhaustion and endless medical tests, she found relief in her diagnosis of celiac disease. After giving up gluten, she learned how to live well and love food more fully. Now she can help you do it, too.
In Gluten-Free Girl, Shauna James Ahern shares the journey that changed her from a typical Gen-X processed-food junkie to a fun-loving foodie. She shows you how to say yes to a gluten-free lifestyle and embrace a whole new world of fresh foods and flavors. She shares dozens of recipes everyone will love, like salmon with blackberry sauce, chocolate banana bread, and lemon olive oil cookies.
Part memoir, part best friend giving advice, part cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl will put the spring back in your step and your diet, one delicious meal at a time.
