Celiac and the Beast talks about Gluten Free on a Budget cookbook by Chandice Probst and Tana Besendorfer!
I want to personally thank Chandice (you know, from Gluten Free Frenzy) for letting me write a little ditty in the front of this book, as well as a huge hug for mentioning my book, Celiac and the Beast on her book recommendation list!
WHAT IS IT: 244 pages of advice, homemade love, and recipes. These just aren’t baked goods recipes, there are entrees that don’t even include a grain!
Unique and exciting recipes include:
- Page 31: Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
- Page 48: Raspberry Toaster Pastry
- Page 66: Chicken Salad
- Page 70: Tempura Vegetables
- Page 71: Creamy Potato Salad
- Page 148: Pao de Queijo
- Page 156: Blueberry Turnovers
- Page 202: Mexican Wedding Cookies
- Please note: multiple recipes call for sorghum flour, almond flour, coconut flour, teff flour, and brown rice flour.
WHY: We all know that gluten-free can be expensive, in fact, it’s a fact that it’s more expensive than a traditional diet. But it doesn’t have to be – you CAN eat gluten-free on a budget. You can purchase items in bulk, and stick to simple, wholesome, home-cooked recipes like those found in Gluten Free on a Budget.
WHO IT IS FOR: It’s definitely for those who want those wholesome recipes that mom used to make. This book screams COMFORT FOOD. If you’re not okay with seeing a recipe with ketchup in it, this isn’t for you!
- It’s for those who can also eat meat, dairy, and eggs – as most of these recipes include at least one of those. This is NOT a vegan cookbook. I’m sure you could make dairy and egg subs, but many of these recipes won’t turn out quite the same with subs.
- It’s for those who like to plan their meals in advance, not for those who like to throw things together in a panic – but with their meal planning and shopping tips, this could be you!
- This book is for someone who loves high-quality fats. This book is abundant in coconut oil – one of my favorites.
- It’s for someone who wants to avoid paying high prices of gluten-free noms by making their own! Want to cook more at home and avoid dining out? This book is for you.
- It’s for someone who wants to know about food storage and how to prepare for emergencies as a celiac.
