Digestive Health with REAL Food: The Cookbook
As Hippocrates once said, “Health starts in the gut”—and to that you could add, “and gut health starts with REAL food!” Unfortunately, many things can go wrong with your digestion, and when they do, your body lets you know via symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, and abnormal bowel movements. Your gut problems can eventually affect almost any of your body’s systems, causing other symptoms like fatigue, headaches, skin issues, joint pain, brain fog, underweight or overweight, and even symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions.
Whether you’re suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease or nonceliac gluten sensitivity, FODMAP intolerance, fructose malabsorption, food intolerances with unknown causes, or any other digestive problems—changing your diet can help you fight the inflammation raging in your intestines and balance your gut flora to improve not only your digestive health but also your overall health and quality of life.
Digestive Health with REAL Food: The Cookbook will help you learn how to cook with simple, REAL-food-based ingredients that are easy to incorporate into an elimination diet (as detailed in the companion book of the same name) and adapt to your personal dietary tolerance. All 100-plus recipes are 100 percent free of grains, gluten, dairy, sugar, and chemical ingredients. They’re also low in FODMAPs, and many of them are free of eggs, nuts, and nightshades, so you’ll have plenty of options to accommodate your personal needs. But most importantly, all of the recipes in this cookbook are rich with gut-healing, anti-inflammatory, low-irritant, nutrient-dense ingredients.
Plus, a quick glance through this cookbook will convince you that eating to improve your digestive health can even satisfy and nourish your inner foodie. Check out the tasty grain-free Bananaoatmeal, the gut-healing Tummy Gummies, the nutrient-dense Grain-Free Pizza, the anti-inflammatory Dreamy Creamy Pasta, the energizing Coconut MCT Balls, the dairy-free Crème Brûlée, or the gut-balancing homemade Low-Sugar Kombucha. Your taste buds—and your digestive system—will thank you for it!
