Who must avoid wheat? People with coeliac disease, who are unable to tolerate wheat and people with food allergies. Wheat and wheat products are present in some form in almost every processed food product - not just bread, cereal, pasta and other flour-based products, but, also, such unexpected items as liquorice, cream soups, sauces, condiments and even some medicine. Managing to eat a healthy diet that completely eliminates this nearly ubiquitous grain can be a real challenge. Written by a leader in the field of cooking for people with food sensitivities, WHEAT-FREE RECIPES makes it possible to enjoy all of your favourite foods without wheat or gluten, including breads, pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, cakes, casseroles - even pizza. Having a wheat sensitivity no longer means resigning yourself to dietary boredom or settling for foods with unhealthy levels of fat or salt in an attempt to make up for missing flavour. Dr. Fenster's recipes emphasise fresh, wholesome ingredients and simple, clear instructions that make for easy, fail-proof preparation of mouth-watering meals.
