For individuals with food restrictions resulting in gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free diets, daily life can be overwhelming. It can be complicated to prepare meals that the whole family will enjoy. These recipes take some of the anxiety and fear out of meal planning and put back some of the joy of eating. For everyone. This is a book for those who want to eat delicious food but stay within healthy guidelines. Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or not, Marvelous Meatless Meals will have something for you.
A vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free cookbook by author and registered dietitian, Melissa Pickell, R.D. Melissa s Marvelous Meatless Meals provides the basics for those just getting started on a gluten free casein free (no dairy) diet as well as many healthful suggestions for those wishing to move to a vegetarian lifestyle and reduce their intake of refined sugar. Ms. Pickell, who is founder of New You Nutrition, a private practice based in New Jersey, says she decided to write the book after her husband was put on a strict diet of no gluten, dairy, or sugar for health reasons. A gluten free diet is complicated enough, but being vegetarian adds some extra challenges. The author says she was already preparing most foods from scratch but now had to be vigilant in label reading as well. Unsuccessful gluten free bread baking led her to explore what options were available in books. The books that were vegetarian were not gluten or dairy free, the books that were gluten free were not vegetarian or dairy free, and most cookbooks did not seem to pay any attention to reducing sugar. So Pickell decided to write her own. Pickell states that her recipes are not time consuming since she has a busy family schedule. I hope my recipes will reach an audience of those who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle by cooking more, eating less meat, less wheat, and less sugar. In my home, we aim to cook a meal that works for everyone, regardless of their food restrictions. I have tried to take the recipes that we have enjoyed as a vegetarian family and find ways to make them dairy, gluten, and sugar free. I hope that my recipes will take some of the fear out of gluten free vegetarian meal planning and put back some of the joy of eating. The book features over 140 recipes including Pancakes, Waffles, and Muffins, Main Dishes, Soups & Salads, Snacks, and Desserts.
