Not what I expected. It's mostly just a cookbook. Two pages were valuable and those were the ones that said "food you can enjoy" and "foods you should avoid". That's all I needed to know. If you like to cook, the recipes are fine. However, I cook very plain. Just a piece of fish or chicken, salt and pepper and cook.
Now this is a diet that I can easily incorporate. This is one of those plans that you can so totally adapt to "real life"! The first thing I loved about this diet is that it is fruit friendly! I'm so tired of being told "watch your fruit intake", or that fruits are on the "rarely eat" list. Watermelon (FAVE!), berries, apples, pineapple, bananas, citrus....All my favorites are here! Another high point I loved was that you can adapt this diet to whatever you need. For example, my budget doesn't allow for me to change totally. I still have to use cheap flour, but at least I use whole wheat. I use sweet potatoes as much as possible, but given the difference in price, I still have to have regular white potatoes. I just don't eat them as much. I'm also supposed to stay away from dairy, but again, dairy is cheaper than any other variety of "milk". I still use milk, but only in recipes. That said, you can see that I followed the diet, to a moderate degree. Even with the changes I had to make, this diet didn't make me feel like I was making any big changes. A few tweaks here and there. The book is loaded with information about inflammation, it's effects on the body, and how food can be used as a way to help alleviate the effects. Meal plans, shopping lists, plenty of recipes... This is so simple. And easy to read! It's not loaded with jargon, but just easy to understand info. Some of my fave recipes so far, Pan Seared Pork Loin. Then I make the suggested Spinach and Pork Salad out of leftovers. Did I forget to mention they give you recipes to use with all the leftovers? Oh, yeas they do.The sautéed spinach has become a 3 or more times a week side dish! We had company over for the Sesame Miso Chicken. Winner. Coconut Mango Lassi. Winner. Next up: Avocado Fudge. Oh yes. Now. Do I feel any different after eating *mostly* this way for a couple of weeks? Absolutely. Out with the garbage, in with good, healthy food. What other result could I expect? Down 2 pounds, with no change but the diet. I'm going to stay on it for a while longer. I feel better and the food tastes better, than my standard fare.
Lots of great recipes. There's nothing bland and you don't feel like you're missing out on anything if you stick to the eating plan. I also really really really appreciate the meal plans and shopping lists. If I can't decide what to cook during a given week, I can just flip to one of the meal plans and it's corresponding shopping list.
This book is very helpful. It is put together in a way that is easy to follow and easy to incorporate into a daily or weekly routine. Great and yummy suggestions for recipes and meals that are not to difficult to put together. Especially good for someone ( like me) not able to make big changes but willing to move into a healthier direction. The weekly shopping lists are put together well and got me started out on the right path. Love this book!
This is a complete guide to what you will need to start making critical changes to the way you eat! The authors make what could be challenging for most of us completely doable. They lay out a simple to follow plan including tips for how to prepare for change. Another plus is that most of the recipes contain less than eight ingredients. So happy I bought this book!
This may be best meal plan book I have ever purchased. It is so easy to follow, the recipes are not complicated, the way the information about anti-inflammatory eating is presented makes you feel excited about doing yourself a favor and eating better. I have a shelf of diet plans and cookbooks that are simply too complex to put to use in my world. This book is informative and affordable and easy to apply to your daily routine. Nothing fancy - just factual and fun . No stress.
Even if you don't think you need an anti-inflammation eating plan, you will find many delicious recipes in this book. I admit we haven't tried most of them, but the recipes we've prepared have been delicious. There's a solid introduction to the concepts of anti-inflammation diets and the book gives many options for vegans, vegetarians, paloes, etc. The recipes are not super complicated and do not require many weird ingredients. Our naturopath suggested that my husband and I go on an anti-inflammation eating plan. I highly recommend this cookbook.
I absolutely love this book! For years I had constant pain throughout my body. All the test came back negative. I decided to go on an anti inflammatory diet and bought this book. The book breaks done your shopping list for you along with what to eat three meals a day, for 2 weeks and extra recipes. After one month, I lost 14 pounds, pain is almost gone, I am sleeping better, and my energy is up. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants a life changing experience!
