Publisher Comments:

1st Runner-Up in the 2004 Writers' Notes Book Awards!

This book—part medical treatise, part cookbook—will teach you how to make GFCF entrees, breads, desserts, and many other foods the entire family will enjoy eating.

In a nutshell, certain enzymes are required to break down gluten and casein. If the enzymes that normally break down casein and gluten don’t function well, serious neurological problems can result. Studies have shown that children with autism have a marked deficiency of these enzymes, so gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) diets have yielded positive results for many children.

First Runner-Up in the Writers' Notes Book Awards, this original Special Diets book has been helping children and adults with autism, ADHD, Celiac disease, and other disorders since 1998! The first part of the book describes the diet in detail, from both a scientific and a personal approach (the author's son has autism and their family has been on the GFCF diet for years). Helpful sections include:

  • Sam’s Story
  • About Special Diets
  • Allergy or Intolerance
  • Tests and Nutritional Supports
  • How (And What) to Feed Your Child
  • Help From Friends & Relatives

Next, the cookbook part contains over 140 recipes, including many you would have never thought possible on a GFCF diet, such as:

  • Breaded chicken nuggets and fish sticks
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Pizza
  • Mock mac-and-cheese
  • Pancakes and muffins
  • Cookies and cakes
  • And more!

 

Synopsis:

Using a common-sense approach to a complex subject, Dr. Lewis, a mother of autistic children herself, offers specific examples of food allergies and intolerances which impact health and behavior in children with autism or related developmental disorders, and provides gluten/casein-free recipes; lists of vitamins, minerals, and supplements; and much more.

Synopsis:

This text explains how and why to implement a dietary intervention strategy for helping children and adults with autism. Drawing upon her own success with removing gluten and casein from her son's diet, she answers the many questions parents might have about choosing a dietary intervention.
