  • (1888PressRelease) July 26, 2011 - Cookbook author, gluten-free enthusiast, and all around foodie, Elana Amsterdam, is reshaping the gluten-free diet with her bestselling cookbooks, "The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook" and "Gluten-Free Cupcakes." Drawing on her years of nutritional knowledge and cooking experience, Elana has developed a series of high-protein, healthy and gluten-free recipes. Unwilling to compromise taste or texture, Elana's recipes are based off a secret gluten-free ingredient: almond flour.

    After being diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder in which the body is unable to tolerate gluten, Elana began to rethink her lifestyle, diet and cooking habits. She was immediately dissatisfied with the selection of gluten-free foods available in the marketplace, finding them to be lacking in taste and texture. Additionally, with a husband and two sons at home, she wanted to find gluten-free recipes that even those without celiac disease or gluten sensitivities could enjoy. It was then that she began to cultivate a series of recipes incorporating almond flour to create gluten-free meals and desserts that were equally satisfying to anyone and everyone.

    "While many who adhere to a gluten-free diet do so out of necessity, it is becoming more and more popular for those who have no dietary restrictions to make the switch to gluten-free," says Amsterdam. "This is because of the enormous benefits a gluten-free diet, when done correctly, can have on a person's health. My cookbooks were created with everyone in mind."

    Almond flour, unlike rice flour and other commonly used gluten substitutes, has a smoother, more buttery flavor that significantly enhances flavor. Additionally, because almond flour is considerably lower on the glycemic index compared to wheat and rice flours, it is an excellent source for health-conscious individuals looking to shed pounds. Fortunately, Elana has combined the nutritional benefits of almond flour and her prowess for pairing flavors to create a series of recipes that have even the biggest gluten-free-skeptics going back for seconds.

    Whether it's a hankering for a healthier Black Forest Cupcake or a craving for an elevated Eggplant Parmesan, it can be found in the gluten-free pages of Elana Amsterdam's bestselling cookbooks.


    Elana Amsterdam is the bestselling author of two gluten-free cookbooks, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook and Gluten-Free Cupcakes.

    As one of the leading experts on gluten-free cooking, Elana Amsterdam is changing the taste of gluten-free foods forever with an eclectic mix of almond flour focused recipes. After being diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder which results in intolerance to gluten, Elana was motivated to change her lifestyle and cooking habits for the better. Unwilling to compromise taste, Elana drew on her years of nutritional knowledge and cooking experience to cultivate a series of gluten-free recipes that would not sacrifice taste or texture.
