Gluten-free Cooking for Healthy Living Book Review

*I received a free book for review purpose. I did not receive any other form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the product or products might be different from mine. 

Gluten-free doesn't have to mean pleasure-free anymore! Today, with some smart and easy cooking strategies, plus tasty substitutes, it's possible to eat both healthily and delectably. As long as you have this cookbook on your kitchen counter, you can enjoy delicious dishes with tempting aromas, eclectic flavors, and no apologies. Nothing's off the menu—not even baked goods, thanks to a variety of flours, including brown rice, coconut, garbanzo, grains like quinoa and millet, tapioca, and much more.

The comprehensive advice here covers making your own mixes for such favorites as pizza, bread, cakes, and cookies, and there are plenty of amazing, mouth-watering options for every meal. Breakfast might include Fluffy Pancakes, Cherry Oregano Scones, and Mini Frittatas with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese. For a lighter dish, try Italian Green Salad with Pears & Parmesan Cheese or Chestnut Sweet Potato Soup. And with mains like Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Creamy Yogurt Sauce, and Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls, you won't feel as if you're giving up anything. (Don't worry: we haven't forgotten dessert. With treats ranging from Ice Cream Sandwiches to Marble Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, even the sweetest tooth will be satisfied.)
Whether you're suffering from celiac disease or another form of gluten-intolerance, or just want to feel better and healthier, this cookbook is the key to going gluten-free . . . scrumptiously.

Born near the Mediterranean, where seasonal, fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables flourish, Chef Einat Mazor forged a strong connection to food and cooking at an early age. This passion shaped her life and career. Although she went on to earn her BA in life science from Tel Aviv University and an MA in business, and worked for a time in the corporate world, she never gave up on her dream of owning a catering place of her own. That wish came true when she became a certified chef at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. Now she's a culinary consultant for restaurants and food companies where she specializes in gluten- and dairy-free products.

Our Review:
Although we are not on a gluten-free diet, many of our friends and their kids are. I must admit that I don't actually do any gluten-free cooking of my own. Of course, I buy gluten free products and I use them to make cupcakes or meals for my friends, but I have never tried to make any dishes from scratch. Now that we host a lot more dinner parties at our home, I need to make more gulten-free dishes that are budget friendly. I thought that  Gluten-free Cooking for Healthy Living is a great book even if you are not on a gluten-free diet. There are many dishes in it that are fantastic and did not require any special, hard to find ingredients. I have made tofu and vegetables with coconut sauce, autumn vegetable stew and salmon fillets with creamy yogurt sauce. All of the dishes I tried so far have been delicious.
