Wheat Belly shook the foundations of the diet world when author and renowned cardiologist William Davis revealed that an epidemic of adverse health effects—from mysterious rashes and high blood sugar to stubborn belly fat (so-called "wheat bellies")—could be banished forever with one simple step: Saying goodbye to wheat. The Wheat Belly Cookbook built on that foundation wi

I thought it was handy, however, I haven't tried all of the recipes. The few I have tried are good. Has great tips to purchasing the right foods and why.

Well...... I thought there would be some magic combination of flours that would work the way wheat does - and there really isn't. Some of the cookies - like shortbread made with corn flour taste great, and some of the muffins are alright - but the breads just don't work.

It's a good book for people who don't know how they're ever going to get along without wheat because it shows alternatives but you really need to go online to check out specific recipes.

Confession: I haven't actually tried any of the recipes yet, but it definitely points me in the right wheat-free direction! I would have appreciated some of his insights from Wheat Belly, but alas, I guess I'll have to read the book.

Von den Weizenwampen-Büchern hatte ich schon einiges gehört, aber hatte selbst noch keines davon gelesen. Allerdings verzichte ich selbst so weit es geht auf Weizen und habe mich daher sehr auf dieses Buch gefreut. Schon bei der Leseprobe bekam ich dann den etwas deprimierenden Hinweis, dass meine Ersatzmehle auch alle nicht wirklich empfehlenswert sind. Das spornte mich umso mehr an, mich weiter mit diesem Thema zu beschäftigen.

Erst einmal möchte ich aber etwas zur Aufmachung schreiben. Diese f

Dieses Büchlein ist eine Ergänzung zu den beiden anderen Weizenwampe-Büchern; falls man aber schon etwas Ahnung zu diesem Thema mitbringt, kann man das Buch auch nur wegen der Rezepte kaufen, man muss die anderen Bücher von William Davis nicht gelesen haben, um mit diesem Buch ansich etwas anfangen zu können.

Zu Beginn gibt es nochmal eine kurze Einleitung zum Thema Weizen, und warum dieser schlecht für die Gesundheit ist, dann noch einen kruzen Reminder, in welchen Lebensmitteln sich Weizen über

This is a really handy cookbook for weeknight meals, and everything I've made so far has been quite tasty. While I don't eat much in the way of gluten-free baked goods anymore (I've just dropped baked goods from my diet for the most part), I have found the flax wraps and sandwich bread to be handy for occasional lunches or other meals to-go, and particularly with the flax wraps, which can be made in two minutes in the microwave, they're great for turning leftovers into a quick wrap.

My only comp
One of the best cookbooks I've tried and I've tried many over the years. Especially helpful if you are gluten-intolerant, thyroid issues or autoimmune issues but great cookbook even if you're not. The beginning has a good introduction on why we as a society should cut out wheat, sugar and processed foods but the book Wheat Belly should be read first for more in-depth research and discussion on the issues of our food and diet today. Every recipe I have tried is delicious for our entire family ...more

The first part of the book contains much of the information in his earlier book, "Wheat Belly" with wheat/gluten-free recipes in the rest of the book. The information in the first part is a real mind-blower about GMO'd wheat and corn. You'll never want to eat wheat or corn again when you learn about how it's been engineered with no long-term research on health consequences--it's all for the manufactures' bottom line at the expense of our health. The recipes are easy and really, really tasty. I ...more

Best part about this book: the use of spice blends. At the beginning there are several recipes for spice blends, which are used in most of the other recipes to season or make sauces. Extremely useful to make ahead of time and have on-hand. I do wish the pictures of the food were with the recipes instead of all grouped together in the middle of the book. I was able to find several recipes (along with all of the spice blends) that fit my paleo standards that were worth writing down. If your only ...more

I have the first cookbook for wheat belly and this one offers quick & easy 30 minutes or less. It has an all- purpose baking mix, basic flatbread mix, seasoning mixes, etc. This lets you make these ahead and store so it is easy to make breads, muffins, cakes without uses the junk flour mixes. I know you can buy his mixes online, but they are costly. So he gives you the same recipes to make your own which is more than you would get in the box.

I have tried several recipes in this book, and they were all quite good. I haven't read any of the wheat belly books, but the recipes align well with my mostly low-carb diet. The key lime cupcakes are amazing. I like that there are shortcuts, like making a baking mix instead of measuring six ingredients for every baking recipe. The main dishes, in particular, do not account for preparation time, which adds about another 15 minutes in some cases.
Sep 15, 2014 Jim rated it did not like it
Like the Wheat Belly Cookbook , there's not much more here than any other low carb diet, except for the addition of non-wheat mixes for cooking (to replace replace wheat-filled ingredients like flour).
Jan 16, 2015 Carol rated it it was ok
I read this book carefully but have not tried any of the recipes. I appreciated that the calorie counts were included but every muffin recipe was over 500 calories per muffin! If you are trying to lose weight you really will have to be picky about which recipes you choose to make. Luckily I got this book from the library.

Full of interesting recipes for the time poor, it's a good cookbook, but I'm still wanting more recipes that translate to the Australian marketplace. Some of the ingredients are hard to source, and though the recipes sound delicious, they're heavily weighted towards the North American lifestyle.

Still it's a good one to read and try out different quick recipes.

Not every recipe I tried was wonderful, but haviung a resource like this for basic grain free recipes is fanitastic and makes this journey so much easier. This book will stay on my kitchen rack for quick reference. I just made a double batch of the basic muffins for my lunches next week.

It's a cookbook. There will always be some recipes you like and some you don't. Part of the recipes is training and teaching you how to eat in a different way, so sure they seem pedestrian, but it makes you think, oh yeah, I can have a sandwich, just a little different!

borrowed the book from a friend but there aren't very many recipes I want to try because there are so many recipes that use nuts or almond flour (my son has nut allergies so I prefer not to have it in the house) and a bunch of other recipes have artificial sweeteners which i'm not wild about.

Some great recipes in this book. Only wish he would have included a few more baked treats, but then I guess they wouldn't have been in/under the half hour mark.

For the most part I love the recipes though I haven't tried them all. There has only been a few I don't care for. These books have changed my cooking and diet.
