Gluten-Free Book Review: Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free: A Whole Food Starter Guide & Cookbook


Back in December my friend Hallie Klecker asked me to review her newest e-book. A wonderful collaboration written with Alisa Fleming, author of Go Dairy Free. This book, "Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free: A Whole Food Starter Guide & Cookbook" is exactly that: a perfect place to start when you go gluten-free and dairy-free.

What I love about this amazing little book is that it not only gives you a full description of what gluten-free and dairy-free REALLY means... it also gives you list after list of foods you can eat, foods you should avoid, shopping lists, a menu planner, etc... this book is a one-stop-shop for learning how to fully become both gluten-free and dairy-free.

Hallie and Alisa have also created 75 delicious recipes that will get you started on your gluten-free & dairy-free journey. How do these recipes sound:

  • Banana Cream Pie Shake
  • Cranberry Walnut Breakfast Biscuits
  • Maple Apple Turkey Sausages
  • Weeknight Chicken & Vegetable Chili
  • Fresh Salmon salad with Lemon Ginger Dressing
  • Florentine Flatbread "Pizza" 
  • Chicken Curry in a Hurry!
  • Chewy Dark Chocolate Brownies
  • Maple Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

Then, in addition to all of the mouth-watering recipes, you'll also receive meal planning tips and hints which show you how to cut down on prep time and make weeknight gluten-free & dairy-free cooking fast and easy.

  9. I would love to have this book. The florentine pizza speaks to me as I cannot have gluten or dairy. Miss cheese so much. What is she subbing????? ginnywh@centurytel.net

  10. I would love to have this book because I am trying to find different ways to feed my husband and sons gluten-free. I think it would help them all out if we maintained that kind of lifestyle. Right now, my husband is low carb. He lost 30 pounds in 40 days. With this, he might be able to keep it off. Also, my kids act better and are healthier when we cut back on gluten and refined sugars. But I am running out of ideas!
