I suffered with Lyme for 5 years and was under the care of a Lyme Specialist when I came across this book. It was the one thing that relieved most of my symptoms. It is an investment in yourself that you truly deserve if you have been suffering from fatigue, phantom pains, etc.
I was amazed at how many good dishes they were able to create even with the limitations of the earlier phases of the diet.
Finally, a cookbook I can give to my clients with food sensitivities without hesitation!
Coupled with gorgeous photographs, the recipes should appeal to anyone seeking wholesome food. No sense of deprivation here. And no need for the cook to be preparing two different menus for people with a different health status.
If I could give this 6 stars, I would. I want to sing this book’s praises… Lost 20 pounds. Feel even better… please give this a try. It’s been better than any of the medications I’ve been on.
BEST recipe book I have EVER bought. Both my husband and I have Lyme disease and it has been such a challenge to cook for this, until this cookbook! My husband says I have never made better food and it makes having to restrict what we eat a pleasure rather than a pain.
A healthy, delicious way to eat for just about anyone. After following the diet for a week, my joint pain has decreased by 75%. Meanwhile, I have lost 8 pounds without cutting back on calories and feeling hungry. The recipes are easy to follow and the results are phenomenal.
This book is a great way to start and maintain your elimination diet. It is easy and has really great tasting recipes and tips. I actually hate to cook, but this book has been a great success in our household. It has also made me feel better!
