Shelley Case is an incredible resource to the gluten-free community. Shelley is a registered dietitian, author, speaker and consultant with more than 30 years’ experience. She is a member of the Medical Advisory Boards of both CDF and GIG here in the US, and on the Professional Advisory Council of the Canadian Celiac Association. She is, indeed, Canadian and has the best accent to boot.
Shelley often gives presentations across the globe about celiac disease. She knows everything about the disease and the gluten-free diet. It’s a real honor to know her, but you all have the opportunity to soak up all of this knowledge by reading this book. Shelley’s best-selling book is everywhere and for everyone – newly diagnosed, family and friends of celiacs, doctors and GIs, the medical industry, and the food/beverage industry. Every restaurant owner in the US would be able to offer better service to specialty diet consumers if they would just pick up this book. And I’m definitely not above being passive aggressive and ordering copies of this to give to CEOs of major restaurant chains.
Here’s all the things you will learn (or expand upon your existing knowledge on) in this book:
- Celiac disease & non-celiac gluten sensitivity
- Safe foods & those to avoid
- Frequently questioned ingredients such as flavors, vinegars, wheat starch, glucose syrup, oats, alcohol and more
- Gluten-free alternatives

I’m telling you, this book is on my MUST BUY LIST for people who have celiac disease – new or not. It’s so comprehensive. When I give talks across the country, I recommend this book.

Hadn’t heard of this one yet!! SO excited!!
Great giveaway! I’
I would love to learn more about Celiac disease in general!
My husband was just diagnosed with CD, and I want to become as educated as possible.
I’m a librarian and I work a lot with nursing students. For their second semester, they have to write a paper on a disease. I’m happy to say that celiac disease got a lot of interest this year and I know of probably 6 or 7 (out of about 60) students who chose to write about it (some came to it themselves and some got the idea from me, as I was happy to “lend” them my disease for their topic!). I’d love to be able to have this book for them to use as a resource, as well as for my own interest as I have celiac. Thanks!
everyone could use more information on this subject. Knowledge is key to helping people understand this subject. I just happen to love to learn.
it would be handy to have for a reference guide
I’d like to win this for my friend!
I would really like to know more about celiac gluten free and use it as a resource . Also a great way to educate others who doubt!
Thanks Erica for glowing review of my #glutenfree book!
I’ve been gluten free for three years and I am STILL learning things about the lifestyle! I would like a copy because it would be great source material if I have questions. And I always do! 😀
Knowledge is power. Power against Celiac. Thanks for all you do to get that knowledge out to all. This book would be a great resource in every library. Hope to have it in mine.
I would read the book and use any resources within and then share with the support group I belong to.
I would like to win this book to give to a friend that really needs it! Thank you so much for the chance 🙂
I would love to win because its a good possibility that I have Celiac disease. I am being tested for this and this would be helpful. Thank you
How many more pounds do I have to lose and how much sicker to be considered Celiac? How much sicker? I would NOT go back on Gluten for the secure classification of being “Gluten Sensitive.” No way. I am happy finally eating totally GF and feeling so good. GF👍
Well then, by all means, consider yourself as non-celiac gluten sensitive and don’t eat gluten if it makes you that sick. Yes, you should get a diagnosis of celiac disease, because it does have proper follow-up needs (you can search my blog to read about follow up), but I’m not telling you to get sick to obtain that diagnosis. Clearly you are sick and can’t go back on a gluten-full diet. You can always get a genetic test, OR you can just live your life on the safe side and keep 100% gluten-free and make SURE you follow-up with blood tests, nutrient panels, bone density testing, etc. as if you were a celiac.
