About The Book
When Jeeva was diagnosed with celiac disease, she realized just how hard it was to find food that suited her. Every trip to the grocery store was an arduous exercise in reading ingredients and researching the effects of certain foods. She also discovered that glutenfree food was expensive. Jeeva understands the nightmare of living with celiac in India. To her, glutenfree is neither a fad nor an allergy. It is an autoimmune disorder - a disorder that can only be controlled, not cured. This book is her journey of trying to lead a glutenfree life while dealing with a condition that goes largely undiagnosed but affects 1 per cent of the world's population. In A Glutenfree Life, she unravels the secrets behind ingredients found in most foods, gives practical tips on how to avoid gluten and most importantly, helps us better understand celiac disease.
