THE GROUNDBREAKING TWENTIETH-ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE BOOK THAT STARTED A REVOLUTION

THE GLUTEN-FREE REVOLUTION

Absolutely Everything You Need to Know about Losing the Wheat, Reclaiming Your Health, and Eating Happily Ever After

By Jax Peters Lowell

“Charming, funny, and practical… an information-packed winner.”—Booklist (starred review)

“A must read….[Lowell’s] new book is an essential handbook for all those who avoid gluten….this is a definitive resource.”—Gluten Free & More

“Lowell reprises her role as a gluten-free educator for the general public in this work. She explains what gluten-free means, offering not just a definition, but a look at what it’s like for a gluten-intolerant individual to have to think about every bite consumed and what it means for loved ones who are cooking for those affected.”—Library Journal

Gluten-free has gone far beyond trendiness. Although only about 1% of the population suffers from celiac disease (the autoimmune condition which causes the immune system to attack the intestinal walls in response to consumption of gluten), up to eight times more people may have sensitivity to the protein, or experience ill effects from related conditions, such as IBS and wheat allergy. That translates to about 40 million Americans buying gluten-free products, a $4.2 billion market that continues to grow.

Living gluten-free is a challenge, but Jax Peters Lowell is exactly the right guide. Her new book, THE GLUTEN-FREE REVOLUTION: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know about Losing the Wheat, Reclaiming Your Health, and Eating Happily Ever After (Holt Paperbacks; on sale: February 3, 2015), is the twentieth-anniversary edition of the groundbreaking book that started it all from the author who fired the first shot. Fully revised and updated, THE GLUTEN-FREE REVOLUTION is the ultimate and indispensable guide to living—whether by choice or diagnosis—your best and healthiest life without gluten.

Packed with dozens of mouth-watering recipes, many from some of the world’s best chefs and food personalities including Alice Waters, Thomas Keller, Nigella Lawson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rick Bayless and more, THE GLUTEN-FREE REVOLUTION will inspire you to get into the kitchen, and provide you with all the information you need to navigate any situation you may encounter outside of it—without getting sick.

Jax Peters Lowell provides the essential road map to the pleasures, pitfalls, complications and practicalities of what it means to live gluten-free today. Employing the latest research and offering practical advice for shopping, cooking, entertaining, traveling, college, dating, raising healthy kids and compatibility with other diets, Lowell packs everything you need to know about living gluten-free into just one volume.
