Celiac Christmas Gifts – Magazines

I would like to make some recommendations for some gifts that may be very welcomed by the Celiac or person with Gluten Intolerance in your life…even if that’s you!  (Hey, who says we can’t give ourselves a gift at Christmas?)  Today’s recommendations include a couple of magazines that I have come to love and read faithfully over the past several years.  And what’s even better is that they are a great price for a subscription–quite a bit cheaper than buying them individually at the store!

Living Without Magazine for Gluten-free eatingThe first one is Living Without Magazine, which I have been reading for over three years now.  The information is always timely and relevant to those with food allergies, but specifically for those who can’t tolerate Gluten, Wheat, and Dairy.  Living Without is published every two months and it is currently selling for $23/year.  The publisher description reads:

Living Without is a lifestyle guide for people with allergies and food sensitivities. It provides guidance, direction, products and encouragement for people living on a gluten-free or other restricted diet. Living Without can help you open the door to living abundantly with your special needs. It isn’t about minimizing the challenges of living with allergies and intolerances…It’s about learning to live well while living without.

Gluten-free Living Magazine for Gluten-free IndividualsMy second recommendation is also a great magazine for those who can’t eat gluten.  Gluten-free Living focuses most specifically on the issue of gluten, but helpful general information can also be gleaned for those with other food allergies.  This magazine is pretty new to the industry–just a couple of years old, but a very fun magazine to read each time.  This magazine is published quarterly and is currently going for $34/year.  The publisher description reads:

Gluten-Free Living is a national magazine for people who have celiac disease and follow a gluten-free diet. Since the writers and editors are living with celiac disease, they understand the challenges faced by those who must follow a gluten-free lifestyle. Issues offer practical advice and tips, information on how to decode mystery ingredients, and lessons about what celiac disease is all about.

If you read the reviews on Amazon, you will notice that both magazines have had some issues with timely publication and delivery in the past.  As far as I can tell, these have been resolved.  I did notice these issues, myself, but not in the past year or so.  Both magazines are worth the money, in my opinion.  For those new to eating gluten-free, they are great educational tools and for those who have experience, there are plenty of recipes and stories to keep me interested–and I’ve been gluten-free for over three years now.
