Despite what many people might think, a gluten-free diet can be just as unhealthy as the standard American diet (also known as SAD). This is due to the fact that most store-bought gluten-free items-as well as many recipes in gluten-free cookbooks-include refined sugar, starches, fillers, and other nutrient-dead foods. You're likely familiar with some of these ingredients already:

  • White rice flour
  • Potato starch
  • Xantham gum
  • Cornstarch
  • Tapioca flour
  • Guar gum

 

Healthier Gluten-Free is a unique cookbook that educates the reader on how to cook without nutritionally deficient ingredients like xanathan gum and starchy flours and instead prepare recipes and meals that focus on flavorful, health-full, naturally gluten-free ingredients, such as: 
  • Healthy whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.-all of which are gluten-free)
  • Healthy flours (almond flour, coconut flour, millet flour)
  • Healthy fats and binding agents (coconut oil, nut butters, eggs, avocado)
  • Healthy sweeteners (maple syrup, molasses, honey)
  • An abundance of produce and lean meats

It's clean eating, gluten-free style.
