So Much More than just another Gluten Free Cookbook

Delightfully Free's 141 recipes are all gluten free. But, plenty of other cookbooks contain gluten free recipes. In fact, it's easy to find gluten free recipes today, but is that all you're after!?! Have you seriously  asked the question: what else is in these gluten free recipes I get in the gluten free cookbooks or off the internet or in the packaged, processed  meals and snacks I buy at the store?

For too many years, people putting out gluten free products or cookbooks have been taking out the gluten but adding in a whole host of ingredients that we'd be better off without. Among those ingredients are simple carbs, starches, saturated fats, refined sugars, corn, soy, yeast,  and dairy.

I've heard so many people tell me that they started gaining weight and/or spiking their blood sugar or having issues with inflammation while on a gluten-free diet. This should not be okay! Those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity can and should be able to eat much healthier than what they're being offered.

If my goal had been simply to churn out yet another gluten free cookbook, I could have done that and become book number one thousand, two hundred and--you fill in the number. Instead, my focus has never been limited to simply removing gluten at the expense of nutrition, health and other food sensitivities. That's why my recipes never contain dairy, refined sugar, yeast or peanuts. I also avoid soy and corn. 

Delightfully Free emphasizes nutrition and healthy eating. That's why my Garlic Cream Sauce is made from cauliflower and white beans, and my Chocolate Chip Cookies are made from almond meal, and why I have BBQ sauce made with natural sweeteners, not high fructose corn syrup, and why my Black Bean Brownies and Chocolate Cake are made with Black Beans which contain protein and fiber, which, in addition to its other benefits, helps keep blood sugar from spiking and adds protein.

My emphasis on healthy eating means you will never find artificial dyes or alcohol sugars in my recipes.

But, the best thing of all is that Delightfully Free contains recipes which the whole family will love, which means that you fix only one meal which benefits both the allergen sensitive and the allergen free people you care most about.That's why between the covers of Delightfully Free you'll find Lasagna, Chicken Enchilada Casserole, Pizzas, Pastas, Breakfast dishes, Muffins, Breads, Cookies, Cakes with 6 different frostings, soups, salads and 7 salad dressings--selections which are not simply gluten, dairy, yeast and refined sugar free, but healthy and nutritious as well.

So, I care about quality which is also why I had Delightfully Free printed on glossy, 100 Lb paper with a beautiful color photograph for virtually every recipe. I also appreciate practicality and that's why this hardback book has a hidden spiral so that it lays open and flat to any page.

I hope you will consider Delightfully Free for your family's health and nutritional wellbeing. If you have any questions, please email me at If you decide to try Delightfully Free, you can purchase it right on this website and I will be honored to send you out a signed copy.

Wishing you health & Joy, ~ Tracy
