Gluten Free Can Be Easy! The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide 6th Edition Book Review

Thankfully our family doesn't have any diagnosed gluten allergies.  Because I have heard that can be pretty stressful.  I do have a gluten sensitivity and with all of the hype about gluten and how much better it is for our bodies to just stay away from it and reduce it in our diets, I have been making an effort to go gluten free whenever we can.  But it can be hard!  I did find something that makes it so much easier to be gluten conscious and make eliminating gluten so much easier!  Its a book called The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide.  Its the 6th Edition by Triumph Dining.  This book is fantastic!

So in a nutshell, its a 500+ page book that lists product after product along with brand names that are all gluten free.  Its a guide book that you can take shopping with you that will tell you what is gluten free.  At first, before I read it, I thought it would be a bunch of brands that we can't find locally but I was blown away at the selection that's listed.  There are more than 52,000 store brand and brand name products listed!  And its all so user friendly and organized so that everything is easy to find and easy to read.  Its organized into sections based on type of food such as Dairy & Eggs, Beverages, Frozen Foods, Meats, Baking and so on.  And there is also an index in the back of the book that you can use to pinpoint an exact product or brand.  So if you are specifically looking for "bread" or Marinara Sauce" for example, you can easily and quickly check the back of the book and find what you need.   The Table of contents in the beginning is very detailed as well.   For the Baking Isle for example, the table of contents lists "baking chips and bars, baking mixes, baking powder, baking soda, bread crumbs and other coatings, and so on and so forth."  This makes it so easy to find what you need.  And listing withing that baking section has page numbers listed.  I am definitely keeping this in our car from now on so that I have it handy every time I go to the store.   Such a great reference to make a gluten free diet easier to accomplish!

I highly recommend this book!  Out lives are so busy and filled with so much to do, making health easier is great!  Sometimes I've felt like I don't have the time or patience to dedicate to my health but products like this make it easier and doable.  I got the paperback version (which I love) but there's also an eBook version as well!   You can order a copy of The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide from the Triumph Dining website.   They also have a restaurant guide too!
