Living Without Gluten-Free Magazine
Several weeks after our diagnosis, a friend of my mom's (who has Celiac Disease) passed along an extra copy of a magazine she had called Living Without. I sat down and read the magazine cover-to-cover. It proved to be a phenomenal resource full of medical information, personal stories, product information and terrific recipes. I immediately subscribed to the magazine and even ordered several back issues. The main focus of Living Without is living without gluten, however, each issue also offers a variety of well researched articles focusing on living without tree nuts, dairy, soy etc. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every issue. A year and a half later and I still love this magazine. Each issue features articles covering topics such as: Life Stories; Favorite Products & Books; Ask the Chef; and feature articles ranging from Anaphylaxis to Flying the Friendly Skies. Some of my favorite feature articles have been Special Diet Romance February/March 2012; Nutrients, Probiotics, Enzymes October/November 2011 and Celiac Disease April/May 2012. Each issue also has a guide entitled Substitution Solutions to help you modify recipes to make them gluten-free, dairy free, egg free and nut free. It's also a great resource to share with family members or friends who cook for you on occasion.
I highly recommend Living Without, despite the price($23 for 6 issues), for anyone Living With Celiac Disease.
