Lose weight and heal your gut with more than 100 delicious Plant Paradox–approved recipes!
In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers around the world to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly “healthy” foods: a class of plant-based proteins known as lectins. Found in nightshade plants like tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as in grains, legumes, and conventional dairy, lectins attack the lining of our gut and disrupt the balance of our microbiome, leading to leaky gut syndrome and widespread inflammation, weight gain, and illness.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry gives fans of The Plant Paradox what they’ve been asking for: more recipes! In this easy-to-follow cookbook, Dr. Gundry shows readers how simple and delicious it is to live lectin-free (or at least lectin-reduced). In addition to an overview of the Plant Paradox program, a pantry guide, and sample meal plans, Dr. Gundry shares more than one hundred recipes designed to help heal the gut, promote weight loss, and quell inflammation.
He also includes simple kitchen hacks—like peeling and seeding vegetables, and pressure cooking grains and legumes—that reduce or eliminate lectin content, making many favorite foods safe to consume. With dishes that cover every meal of the day, including Pesto-Baked Eggs; Lemon, Kale, and Chicken Soup; Spinach Artichoke Lasagna; and Truffled Mushroom Mac and Cheese, and decadent desserts such as Chocolate Mint Cookies, Pistachio Ice Cream, and Olive Oil Rosemary Cake, Dr. Gundry makes it easy for everyone to clean up their diets and live lectin-free.

The first part of the book is where we learn the details about the program: the background and effects of lectins in our bodies, the common disrupters we may not be aware of, as well as a detailed explanation on how we should approach the program to bring back our innate happy and healthy life.
Please, the first part of this book can either be a refresher of the main book if you have already read that, or it can be the only book to read if you haven’t read that yet. That is, don't bother and get this one instead. You will find ordered and well-explained information covering pretty much all aspects of the program proposed, including the list of desirable food choices as well as the list of those we want to avoid in order to keep low inflammation. I say that because I ended up reading the main book twice and is still fresh in order to compare them both.
The second part of the book is quite delightful. Now, as I edit this review written previously, I wanted to add that I have prepared around 10 of the dishes in the book. First one was the "Cream of Mushroom Soup", and sincerely enjoyed the result. Then tried the delicious "Brazilian Cheezy Bread" which is a yummy snack together with a cup of tea/coffee. From the main dishes I have tried a handful and cannot say which one has been my favorite so far. My family loves the "Halibut with Mushrooms" and I personally enjoy cooking the "Spinach Artichoke Lasagna".
As a side note, most recipes seem to be straightforward, and the ingredient list idem. Also, it's important to note that the recipes will please both vegans and omnivorous.
Even though I am fortunate to be in good health that let me spend time outdoors to go on adventures and move freely, I sincerely believe this lifestyle proposed by Gundry can be a healing approach to foster better health even if we don't have any health issue. At first his viewpoints can be daunting, but it makes completely sense once we understand the "whys" behind it, as well as after complying with the program for only 2–3 weeks. I felt more vibrant upon starting his approach, my skin felt healthier after 2 weeks, my digestive system seems to work even smoother, and I feel lighter. Deep inside we all can find ways to create a more positive, meaningful and healthier lifestyle, nurturing from inside out. Nutrition, after all, is one of the foundation aspects. Besides Gundry's approach, I do enjoy Mercola's "Fat for Fuel" book and Longo's "The Longevity Diet" book. After all they are complementary and based on recent health studies/research.
Lastly, one of the ultimate readings, which I have just finished and has already influenced my thoughts deeply, is a book called "No Recipe: Cooking as Spiritual Practice" from Edward Brown. Combining the Plant Paradox Program principles together with inspiring reflections from Brown can definitely influence our perceptions around nurturing our bodies and souls.
Take good care,
I am a Health Care Professional and believe me this man has brought a wealth of knowledge to solve a huge problem the Medical Community is oblivious to.

Directly in relation to the cookbook, it's very well put together and gives a fair summary of Dr Steven Gundry's Plant Paradox theory, without having to purchase a copy of the more detailed book on the theory (although I'm sure it would be worth it for those who want to dig deeper into Gundry's philosophy). Despite being based in the UK, almost all of the ingredients Gundry refers are easy for me to access; the recipes offer a wide range of appetisers, snacks: soups & stews, main meals, vegetables, sides and sweets - as well as sauces, excellent condiments and dressings.
For those looking to change the way they nourish their minds, (in terms of responsible bio-diversity), and their bodies from a lifelong perspective on healthy eating - as opposed to a faddish experiment - I highly recommend this book.
The book itself is not what I expected as this doctor in his interviews does not think eating certain food is a good idea and I thought that his cookery book would reflect those points of views but instead there is a what seems a random selection of recipes. Very disappointed!
delivery on time. the cover was a bit annoying it didn't stay on.
pages are not waterproof some of the ink in the pages is smudged as i have it in the kitchen using the recipes.
feel good on this diet me and my family. mother and daughter. (13) she enjoys.
