New to gluten-free? Wondering if you have celiac disease or a gluten-intolerance? Just got diagnosed and wondering where to start?

I encourage you to check out these resources for more information on celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Favorite Books:

Celiac Disease (Revised and Updated Edition): A Hidden Epidemic

This is the book I recommend the most to anyone newly diagnosed. The local library system here has it, so I found it there originally. But I found it to be such a great resource I went and bought a copy of my own at Amazon. I carried this around with me for weeks after my diagnosis. This book will give you a great understanding of celiac disease and gluten intolerance. I found it extremely helpful in figuring out what I needed to do now that I was diagnosed. This book helped me make checklists of things to talk to my doctor about and to ask him to order further tests & blood work for.

Jump Start Your Gluten-Free Diet! Living with Celiac / Coeliac Disease & Gluten Intolerance

This is a fantastic new resource put out from the experts at the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center. This book is FREE for your Kindle or Kindle App. (I use the free Kindle App for my Android phone). Excellent, reliable information here.

Triumph Dining’s Essential Grocery Guide -I highly recommend their Grocery Guide. I took it into the store with me for months so I could check products easily. I still keep it in my car because I find I refer to it weekly.
