HEALING EATS: 25 RECIPES TO HEAL THE GUT WHILE SOOTHING THE SOUL
Healing Eats has been created around the knowledge that certain ingredients are known to be anti-inflammatory and healing foods to eat. These include spices such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon; sulphur rich, cruciferous and leafy green rainbow vegetables; bitter leaves, herbs and sea vegetables; prebiotic tigernut; probiotic quick pickles; raw honey and calcium/iron rich blackstrap molasses.
ABOUT THIS E-BOOK
Healing Eats is a collection of my family-favourite recipes. I am passionate about cramming in as many nutrients as possible each meal time. Every recipe is a balance of flavours and textures, as well as being easy, quick and straightforward to make. Your days of preparing special food just for yourself are over – with these recipes everyone will want to join in.
When we embark on a healing protocol in order to lessen the signs and symptoms of dysfunction, we need to remove the stressors from our lives, several of which will be found on our plates. By eliminating those foods known to cause irritation to the digestive tract we can calm our immune system and relieve symptoms. However the wellbeing comes from what we add in. There are so many foods and ingredients that could be called ‘healing’, however I have taken those that I identify with most, and created recipes built around them.
This 76 page e-book consists of 25 recipes, divided into five chapters: Healing Bowls, Healing Dishes, Healing Plates, Healing Treats and Healing Cups, and each recipe is focused on adding nutrients to the diet to aid the healing process.
All recipes are fully compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), Paleo and Wahls Paleo diets, 20 of these recipes are GAPS/SCD friendly, 19 are Whole30 and a small number are low FODMAP and low histamine. All are labelled with the diets they are suitable for.
Healing Eats is a recipe centred e-book with a few small words on the following:
- The importance of a change in lifestyle
- The healing diets mentioned in the e-book and in what ways they differ
- Why we need to address our diet and lifestyle in order to be healthy
- How to embark to a healing diet, whether you decide to take the plunge or take it at a slower pace
- How to transition the family
- How to aid your digestion through food and hydration
Included in the e-book are:
* Links to comprehensive ‘Yes/No’ food lists for the AIP, GAPS, SCD and Wahls protocols
* List of healing ingredients and why they have earned their place in this e-book
* Full colour photos for every recipe included, plus more besides
