I recently read a couple memoirs from people who discovered they had celiac disease later in their lives. Even though celiac disease is a very common autoimmune disorder, the diagnosis process is challenging – unless you’re having a significant health scare – which both of these authors had. There are over 400 symptoms of the disease and my symptoms may not be the same as yours. Anyway, if you’re in mood to read about some serious pooping and tasty recipes, these 2 books are for you!
I got Gluten Is My Bitch for my birthday. 6 months ago. It took a while for me to read, not because it’s boring but because I have 4 kids. I literally laughed at loud while reading this book. April is funny, she is someone that I want to hang out with. She also thoughtfully shared a ton of recipes (chicken and waffles, what?!?) so this book now lives in my kitchen. Even if you don’t have celiac disease, this is a funny read and the recipes all sound delicious.
I got this book for free from Blogging for Books. It is the tale of doing literally everything wrong when trying to get better before a diagnosis. Paul made artisanal bread, he brewed beer, and as he got sicker, he turned to bread as a “gentle” food to eat. He also touches on the misdiagnosis process which was really interesting. I miss bread every single day so I really appreciated this book.
Since it took so dang long to read these 2 books, I am challenging myself to read 12 books this year. I usually listen to audiobooks or podcasts but I want to read a book. For January, I’m reading Small Great Things. It’s a good book. It has some uncomfortable parts but I’m enjoying it. I’ll share my review of it next month.
What about you? What are you reading?
