Simply Gluten Free Magazine

I love reading new magazines and when I checked out the local magazine stand, I cannot believe all the magazines around food allergies — especially the gluten free magazines!

A few weeks ago, I picked up my first copy of Simple Gluten Free and found some wonderful articles and recipes!  (Advertisements, which are usually a bother, are very interesting and informative in this magazine, as well!)

A few of the articles I especially enjoyed are …..

Is Gluten Sensitivity Worse Than Celiac Disease

  • You may be shocked to learn that villous atrophy is about the only difference between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
  • These gluten sensitive people were just as sick as any celiac case that any doctor has even seen.
  • Celiac disease is a symptom,  It’s one potential manifestation of your reaction to gluten.  It;s not the worst symptom, nor is it the end stages of a gluten reaction if you happen to be gluten sensitive.

I was also delighted to find an article by one of my favorite “gluten free” doctors:  Dr. Vikki Peterson:  Simply Gluten FreeGluten Free FAQs with Dr. Vikki

How to Make Gluten-Free Fermented Vegetables is a wonderful article.  I have read before that fermented veggies are really good for you, but had no idea how to make them!  The article gives some specific (and easy) instruction on how to make these nutrient rich vegetables.

Another good article (with recipe) is How to Make Gluten-Free French Bread!  Having been raised in the San Francisco area, I really miss the wonderful sour dough French bread I use to buy there.  Maybe this recipe can satisfy my cravings!!

The back of the magazine is full of harvest style recipes.  Some of my favorites are:

  • Vegan Mac & Cheese — page 87
  • Pumpkin-Cranberry Oatmeal Pudding — page 105
  • Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Brownies — page 106
  • Crunchy Apple Salad with Honey Walnut Dressing — page 110
  • Apple Cider Margarita — page 117
  • Caramel Cashew Cream — page 128

Not all the recipes are vegan, but the magazine for worth buying for all the info — and many of the non-vegan recipes can use vegan substitutes.

This gluten free magazine is a keeper for me!!
