Very Informative

This book has helped answer a lot of questions about yeast allergy. And is helpful in knowing what to eat when it hits. I have had this yeast allergy for 30 yrs. and it comes and goes. This time was by far the worst that it has ever been.

yeast-friend or foe?

interesting material presented in understandable way. helpful info to let one decide if the banning yeast in their diet would be beneficial.

Good general information about food

If you want to get a quick course in general information about food, this is a very good reference. It gives a good layman's introduction to yeast related health problems and how to avoid them. It teaches you how to rotate your diet to find out what foods you are potentially sensitive/allergic to. Basic allergy testing doesn't uncover problems for everyone, so this information can be pretty helpful--and it's a lot less expensive than extensive testing that some health practicioners provide. I've lost 40 lbs on the Caveman diet shown in the book and feel better and have more energy than I have in a while. My dermotologist actually prescribed it for 6 months: the diet is legit. It's not easy nor is it delicious, and it takes discipline and a completely different way of looking at food: as fuel rather than comfort/security, entertainment, pleasure, social bonding, etc. Like other reviewers, I can't eat a lot of the recipes in the book. I agree that the recipes are the least helpful part of this manual. The part of the book I really like is the reference section on vegetables. There is a quick paragraph about each veggie along with the family it comes from (did you know that white potatoes are in the nightshade family?) There are great tips for buying and preparing veggies, including some veggies I've never heard of before. That section is a must-read for people who don't know a lot about vegetables and want to start eating more of them. The other part of the book I liked was the part about poisons and chemicals in the food supply. It's a pretty realistic look at what's happening to fish, meat, and poultry without being so scary that you choose to avoid these foods altogether. If you are looking for a cookbook, you might want to look around. If you are trying to learn about yeast related illness and the cure, this one is worth a look.

Excellent Guide for Food Allergies

I have really enjoyed this book. I understand why the other reviewers rated it as they did though. I also have to stick to a much more restricted diet than the average person on a yeast-free & food allergy plan, however I found it easy to substitute items I could not have with those that I could. My favorite parts of this book are the section on selecting and preparing vegetables and the baked recipes (for which I do a great deal of substitutions). It may be a book for more advanced cooks and bakers, which I am, but it's been a great asset to me and I appreciate having it as a resource.

Finally, something I can bake!

Considering my many food allergies, I was thrilled to find this book. Finally, I can safely bake the breads and crackers I crave, instead of eating only plain cooked grains. The authors present a concrete plan to help me diversify my diet. I treasure the section that lists every vegetable I could imagine, how to shop for them, and how to prepare them. People whose taste buds are attuned to modern Western fare may balk at these recipes, but the book is a godsend for a person avoiding and rotating food allergens.
