Gluten Free Cheat Sheet Review and Giveaway!

So, I’m not gluten free, but because I have other food allergies, I take them very seriously. I also have a mostly gluten free diet and post many gluten free recipes here. I’m not gluten free all the time, so I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to constantly be worried a restaurant or food item could be contaminated with wheat and make me sick. Chocolate isn’t even that common of a cross contaminate and I’ve been made sick several times from it.

Luckily there are a lot of great resources out there, and the newest one is the Gluten Free Cheat Sheet. It’s by April Peveteaux, the author of the blog Gluten is my Bitch. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s a great blog full of information and April’s friendly personality. Whether you are gluten free or not, her blog is a must read.

I had the chance to speak with her about her latest book recently. I so enjoyed our conversation. April is a font of information but she shares it in a conversational way that makes me want to be friends with her. She told me she wants to be honest and real with her readers with a “let’s do this together” attitude. We all want someone with whom to conquer something as tough as going gluten free, especially if that someone is April.

The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet

She’s just a normal person sharing her every day, on-going experiences with being gluten free in a gluten filled world. Sure, she wishes she could be normal and eat pizza and doughnuts, but she doesn’t really have too many cravings anymore because she knows it’s not worth the risk.

She also eats out a lot less than she used to because there’s such a high risk of cross contamination. So many people are involved in the preparation of food in restaurants and even well-meaning chefs and servers can make mistakes.

This makes it tough to deal with busy days, airports, and traveling, because that’s when we all turn to eating out. And no one wants to grab something quick at the airport or on a vacation and have the trip ruined because it accidentally had gluten in it.

Despite all the challenges that April faces, she has a positive attitude, partly due to the fact that things are getting easier for gluten free people. There are more gf products available. Restaurants do try to be more considerate. The world is becoming more aware. Maybe one day we’ll even catch up to countries like Italy where everyone is tested for Celiac disease.

Gluten Free Crackers Recipe

Through whatever happens, April will be guiding us all through her blog and hopefully another book. The Gluten Free Cheat Sheet is a must read, full of helpful hints, ingredients to rely on, as well as those to steer clear of, and some amazing recipes I can’t wait to try.

So really, I’m only left with one question: can we be friends, April? Then again, I feel like we already are.

Plus, the publisher agreed to give away a copy to one lucky reader. In order to enter, answer the question: do you have any food allergies?
