One of the Best Cookbooks of 2009 -The Denver Post
It is estimated that three million Americans have Celiac disease, which is one of the most under-diagnosed diseases in the country. A gluten-free diet, while necessary for Celiac sufferers, also benefits those with diabetes, high cholesterol, and IBS.
With brand new recipes ranging from breakfast favorites to comfort entrées to baked goods, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook offers delicious, nutritious, and whole-food recipes that will benefit anyone, with or without dietary restrictions.
Elana Amsterdam has been profiled in Fortune Magazine and the Wall Street Journal for her business ventures. When she and her son were both diagnosed with Celiac disease, she was inspired to develop gluten free recipes. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.
