Now he clarifies another matter: Gluten-free eating does not mean you have to sacrifice flavor or good nutrition.The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution Cookbook makes creative use of gluten-free ingredients in 175 recipes that will please even the most discerning palates. Mouth-watering dishes like Bacon and Pecan Breakfast Biscuits, Vegetable Quiche with Spinach Crust, Johnnycake Chicken Sandwiches, Shrimp and Chicken Pad Thai, Summer Berry Tart, and Cashew-Butter Cookies will more than satisfy the heartiest (and healthiest) of appetites. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
