Gluten Free BOOK Review – The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet by April Peveteaux
Over 6 Years ago when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I was clueless. I desperately had no idea where to turn. My friend Google helped me out a lot but there is a lot of information to digest in a short period of time and determining what are the first steps for becoming gluten free can be overwhelming. I wished that April Peveteaux’ latest book, The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet was available back then. It truly is an outstanding book!! I was hooked within the first couple of pages.
Although it’s ultimately a guide in helping a person who needs/wants to be gluten free, this is a valuable book for anybody who is gluten free. I found that April’s style of writing is warm, friendly, and supportive. At times I felt that she was a girlfriend of mine and we were just talking about the struggles and other things that we go through on a daily basis maneuvering this world gluten free. We also all have those moments when we are wishing we had someone to share our struggles with and reading this book made me feel like… I am not alone and someone has had to deal with the same things I have had to deal with. It was incredibly encouraging.
She provides tons of incredible tasty recipes!! I must admit, when it comes to cookbooks I have always preferred photos… however for the first time I have to say… I didn’t care that there were none. April has a gift for description and I felt like I had an image in my mind and so the lack of photos was absolutely fine with me.
I will admit, this is normally a book I would have steered clear from simply because I have been gluten free for some years now…. DON’T make that mistake. I will admit, when people ask me the details of gluten free life and the scientific side of gluten, I struggle with how to put it in a way that isn’t off putting. April does not have that struggle, she explains it in a way that makes it completely easy to understand what it is and why we need to be. If you are newly gluten free this is a must read… if you are a friend or loved one of a gluten free person, this is a must read, if you are gluten free this is a must read. I wish I could express how much I enjoyed this book… maybe the fact that I couldn’t put it down was the best indication of my enjoyment. This is a fantastic book that I would say needs to be on your reading list. She is fun, funny, and written a fabulous cook, this author truly has a gift for writing. Trust me, within this book, even the most seasoned gluten free eater will find valuable info, recipes, and gluten free camaraderie.
You must try a few of her recipes while you are at it!! Whether you’re gluten free, gluten and dairy free, or even a gluten free vegetarian, there are recipes in here for you.
