Low GI Gluten-free Living
Endorsed by The Coeliac Society of Australia
Written by Kate Marsh, Prof Jennie Brand-Miller and Philippa Sandall


Here’s what Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian and gluten-free guru Sue Shepherd says about this book in her foreword:

‘As a dietitian working in the area of coeliac disease for a very long time, I have seen first hand the struggle many have faced in making their gluten-free diet varied, nutritious and enjoyable. As more and more people are aware of the importance of GI, combining with the gluten-free diet has created some confusion about what to buy, what to cook and how to cook it! Low GI Gluten-free Living really does take away such uncertainties and difficulties – it is packed full of ideas of how to accomplish a great tasting gluten-free low GI diet … But it is more than just a recipe book. I commend the authors for a marvellous job in compiling useful information for readers, including background to the gluten-free diet, glycemic index and principles of healthy eating. The menu plans are so helpful. The comprehensive low GI gluten-free food list at the back of the book is an invaluable resource. The information and recipes have been compiled with such careful attention to detail – this is a great reference book of all things low GI and gluten free.’

And from Louise, a reader:

‘Yesterday I visited the Gluten Free Expo in Sydney (Australia). During my visit I purchased a copy of Low GI Gluten-free Living at the Coeliac Society’s stand. Just wanted to let you know it was my best purchase of the day. In less then 24 hours I have read the 244 page book. I could not put it down. It was just what I was after. After reading the foreword and the title page for chapter one I knew I was onto a great book and it struck a cord with me. Now looking at what I’ve been eating it was high GI and explains why I was having problems controlling my blood glucose levels. My inability to control my blood glucose levels has led to me being stuck in bed unable to function some days. Knowing if I follow the recommendations in the book I can avoid this is a relief. Also with a son who is only 3 years old with coeliac disease it has given me a great guide to ensure he too is eating a balanced diet. I really found the various menu plans for different ages a great tool and something I will continue to refer to especially in regard to ensuring my son is eating adequately for his age group as his needs change. Thank you for listening to needs of the gluten-free community by putting this valuable resource out there. My family are going to start following the recommendations of Low GI Gluten-free Living today!’
