“Kelly has produced a fabulous recipe book for the gluten/dairy/sugar-free community. It is chock-full of recipes you can't find anywhere else. Yes there are nut milk and smoothie recipes but what I love are the step-by step photos for making the nut milks! This is so helpful for people who have never made them before. ”
—Alissa Sergesten, author of The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook

“Great and practical menus for people with food allergies to dairy and wheat! A definite buy for autism and ADHD patients.”
—Dr. Janelle Love, PHD

Kelly V. Brozyna began to study nutrition in 2004 when her girls were very young. Her daughter, Ashley, was a baby and Zoe was a toddler at that time. Both girls were not well. Her naturopathic doctor worked with them to radically change their diet by removing gluten, casein, and sugar. Kelly and her husband soon realized that their own health problems could be resolved as well. It was very eye-opening to see how many kinds of issues could be treated with the diet. So, after years of research and experimentation, Kelly now creates food so similar to conventional wheat/dairy/sugar recipes that no one feels deprived. Together, through diet and biomedical treatments, their family is overcoming celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, ADD, and autism with great success. Kelly lives in Boulder County, Colorado with her husband and two daughters.

“This is an eloquent tribute to a beloved grandfather and an impeccably researched unit history.”
—Peter Schrijvers, professor at The University of New South Wales; author of Liberators: The Allies and Belgian Society, 1944-1945

“People often forget that it takes 10 men in the rear areas to support one infantryman on the front line. However, for the men of the port battalions, there were no front lines on June 6, 1944, and at times, they found themselves under heavy fire as well. The author is the grandson of one such soldier, Cortland "Corty" Hopkins, from Schenectady, New York. Hopkins had a difficult time getting into the service because his job was considered essential by the War Department. However, after many attempts, he was successfully inducted into the Army in 1943. Brozyna does a good job in describing the duties and experiences of his grandfather's unit during the D-Day landings, the fighting in Belgium, and the Ardennes Offensive. Without a doubt, the port battalions made numerous contributions in supporting the soldiers in the field.”
