Autoimmune diseases are now epidemic, with modern science offering limited solutions to those diagnosed. Given this, many people suffering from these conditions have searched for alternatives using nutrition and lifestyle changes. In The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, Mickey Trescott provides a resource for those looking to embark on the autoimmune protocol (a version of an ancestral diet focused both on removing potential food triggers and healing the gut). Research shows a clear connection between diet and autoimmune disease, and many (including Trescott) have used these principles to heal their bodies from these debilitating conditions and accompanying symptoms. With the information and recipes in this book, you can embark on this process yourself ... without suffering through bland and tasteless "allergen-free" meals. Instead, with all the incredible food you'll enjoy, you may forget you're achieving better wellness!
In the book's first section, you'll learn about the autoimmune protocol: what it is, why it works, and which foods you should eat and avoid while on the elimination diet. Instructions are given on how to clear your pantry of questionable ingredients and replace them with healing, nutrient-dense whole foods. Also included are sections on food quality, a shopping guide, tips, and tricks to make the protocol go more smoothly, as well as ideas for batch-cooking and breakfast. Trescott provides two 4-week meal plans, each corresponding with book recipes and featuring detailed shopping lists. Armed with this information, anyone can integrate the autoimmune protocol into their routine!
In addition to that introductory material, the cookbook includes 112 delicious recipes suitable for anyone in the strictest phase of the autoimmune protocol (no grains, beans, dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds, or nightshades). Although the list of exclusions is lengthy, Trescott offers unique, flavorful, and delicious meals suitable for various occasions and preferences. You'll find simple recipes that anyone can make for a weeknight dinner, as well as more elaborate preparations for those who want to enjoy meals with the company or for a special occasion. Full-page photos for every recipe show you what to expect and inspire you to create beautiful dishes of your own.
With The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook as your guide, you'll be inspired to take your health into your own hands. Find better health in the face of autoimmunity while thoroughly enjoying every last bite!
