Containing over 400 gluten and dairy free recipes, the book will be invaluable to all those whose diet is restricted due to food intolerances. An increasing number of people on the autism spectrum are turning to the gluten and casein free diet and finding that many of the more troublesome symptoms are significantly alleviated. Coeliacs, and those with lactose and other intolerances will also find a wealth of useful ideas for cooking without gluten or dairy products and expanding what may initially seem a very restrictive repertoire of possible meals.
Marilyn Le Breton is the mother of two sons, one of whom is autistic and has benefited considerably from a gluten and casein free diet. Allergy induced Autism is a U.K. based charity dedicated to identifying the underlying causes and biochemical effects of autistic spectrum disorders. Since gaining charitable status in 1997, AiA has gone from strength to strength with an explosion in membership. International seminars, presentations and conferences have served to heighten awareness of the condition, providing a platform for medical research and a focal point for scientists, clinicians and parents.
