    Brilliant guide! I especially like the gluten-free cooking videos, very informative. I wish I had this stuff when I started living without wheat, since it was tough for my friends and family to understand and wrap their heads around how much of an impact wheat could have on a person. I’m thankful that I’ve never had to suffer those horror stories where some people have ignorant relatives who have said “it’s all in your head” and tried to poison them with wheat pasta!

    As for me, I started off reading this guide a couple of years ago and it’s been my go-to guide for eating gluten-free since then. I’ve honestly felt fine and healthy ever since.
