Summary The author has left no resource untapped. Along with a required reading list, Lowell provides a state-of-the-art resource guide that shows the grain challenged how to contact fast-food chains, international and domestic support groups, information hot lines, diagnostic clinics, airlines, railroads, cruise ship lines, and companies specializing in mail-order and wheat- and gluten-free foods
According to its witty, wise, and gluten-impaired author, Against the Grain is about how to save your life and eat happily ever after. It is also the first truly hip primer on creativity and resourcefulness for the gluten intolerant and wheat allergic, and for anyone who feeds them, loves them, heals them, entertains them, and wishes them well. Beginning with introductory essays by two eminent gastroenterologists who explore the symptoms, diagnoses, and management of gluten intolerance and wheat allergy, Against the Grain is crammed with things no one ever tells you: how to charm a chef into eating out of your hand, how to avoid senseless cheating and why you should, which airlines are friendly to the gluten intolerant, how to recognize the culinary terms that spell hidden grains (roux is not cheek color), and how to order a good meal in fifteen languages
