I have to be gluten-free thanks to my terrible, terrible reaction to gluten which is probably celiac disease. If you are paleo or simply avoiding gluten due to health issues, cooking can be a real challenge. Thankfully there are awesome cookbooks ready to help inspire and guide you!

There are no crazy ingredients that you will need to search for, everything is easy to find at your grocery store and pretty budget friendly too. This book is best for anyone with an autoimmune disease or looking for optimum health.

Ditch The Wheat is another must-have cookbook for paleo and gluten-free people. Also, perfect for those who do not eat grains, gluten, legumes, and dairy!
If you suffer from any illness or chronic issue, it might help to avoid foods with inflammatory properties which often include dairy products and processed foods (things from cans, boxes, bags, etc.).
This is another book chock-full of information and ideas and even an accomplished home cook can learn new things with this one. Features healthy, creative recipes that are also budget friendly.
I love paging through these cookbooks for ideas and inspiration. At this point, I feel like I make the same things over and over again and always need new recipes and meal plans.
I highly recommend these books! They make great gifts too! Every cookbook is gorgeously photographed and easy to follow.
The only thing I am going to throw out there is if you have trouble with oxalates, you will want to substitute the almond flour, often used in paleo cooking thanks to its nutrient dense and protein high content, for something else. I typically use brown rice flour to thicken sauces and gravies. In my experience, avoiding oxalates can help with Interstitial Cystitis, a painful bladder disease.
You can find all of these terrific books on Amazon!
