Jax Peters Lowell has been a diagnosed celiac-and gluten- free-since 1981. A lifestyle expert, advocate, and contributing editor to Living Without magazine, Lowell lives in Philadelphia with her husband and bread machine.
The definitive guide to the gluten-free lifestyle, completely revised and updated for the 2.2 million Americans with celiac disease

According to a landmark 2003 National Institutes of Health study, 2.2 million Americans suffer from celiac disease, an allergy to the protein gluten found in wheat. Since this book was first published in 1995 (as Against the Grain), Jax Peters Lowell has been helping celiacs follow a gluten-free diet with creativity, resourcefulness, and humor.

This edition includes chapters covering
- the latest research into celiac disease, and myths that have
been debunked
- how to eat out happily, including a short course in restaurant
assertiveness training
- how to eat in happily, including a discussion of online and
mail order suppliers and negotiating the supermarket as a celiac
- dozens of delicious new recipes
- drugs, cosmetics, and other products tested for celiac-safety
- a thoroughly updated resource section

Tens of thousands of celiacs have already enhanced their lives with Lowell's authoritative, witty, and practical guide. The Gluten-free Bible promises to bring relief to the new gluten-intolerant generation.

    I was hoping for a reference book. It was more chatty than I was wanting.

    I was just diagnosed with celiac disease three months ago and have been looking for good resources on not only how to eat properly but live with the disease. This book does it with style and humor! The author includes a few recipes but don't buy the book just for that. They are recipes submitted by chefs from 5 star restaurants and these recipes mean serious time in the kitchen which even before celiac was not me. This is a practical guide on what you can eat, how to survive the world outside your uncontaminated kitchen and to do it with style. The author gives many resources for all aspects of going gluten free. You don't need to sit there and eat carrot sticks while everyone around you enjoys a good meal.
