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.
