“I can count on Carol Fenster again and again to provide my patients and me with delicious, gluten free (and allergy-free) recipes. In this book, she incorporates a number of the highly nutritious gluten free whole grains, such as her signature sorghum flour blend, into her recipes. The book makes it easy for those especially newly diagnosed to incorporate these wholesome grains into their diet by listing them, describing them and noting cooking times and where to purchase them. In many of her recipes, Fenster uses a combination of fruits and vegetables as well as naturally gluten free ingredients to create healthy options for every meal of the day.
