Although this book is not a Welcoming Kitchen book, (it's not free of all 8 allergens or vegan), it is gluten- and casein-free. Also, because one of the co-authors is vegan (Kim), it is very veg-friendly.
When Adams Media approached us to write this book, we really gave it a lot of thought. Although there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that the GFCF diet can make a difference to people living with autism, there is not a lot of strong science yet supporting these beliefs. (There are more extensive studies in progress.)
We decided to go ahead with the project, hoping to aid the many struggling parents out there who would like to try the diet to see if it helps their child. We thought that we could provide a strong resource for these families. We have created hundreds of easy-to-follow, yummy recipes and informative text to make it easier for families who want to give the GFCF diet a try.
We think that The Everything Guide to Cooking for Children with Autism will be helpful to families living with autism, and also for people looking for delicious and easy gluten-free, dairy-free recipes. We hope you think so, too.
