Mother’s Recipes help Daughter, Others Combat Chronic Inflammation
Pair update award-winning book to help chronically ill impact how they feel and heal
Sunapee, NH – “Never give up your battle.” This is the final line of the dedication from Gail and Laura Piazza’s newly updated cookbook, Recipes for Repair, a 10-week, four-phase plan with 182 recipes created specifically for individuals fighting chronic inflammatory conditions and food sensitivities.
It’s a mantra that rings true for Laura Piazza, as she grappled with misdiagnoses and chronic illness. In 2009, after finally being diagnosed properly with Lyme disease, Piazza discovered The Lyme Disease Solution, by Kenneth B. Singleton, MD, MPH. His views on nutrition and healing piqued her curiosity, but didn’t excite her taste buds. So she called someone with four decades of experience developing recipes for high-profile clients – her mom, Gail Piazza.
Wanting nothing more than to help her daughter feel better, it was natural for Gail to use her culinary talents to develop delicious recipes that adhered to the diet. As a direct result of her dietary changes, Laura’s persistent stomach pains, indigestion, heartburn, and throat congestion eventually were resolved.
This success inspired her. She wanted others to benefit from the diet and her mother’s recipes the way she did. With Laura’s credentials as a professional photographer and graphic designer, and Gail’s food expertise, they would publish a cookbook specific to Dr. Singleton’s diet. Recipes for Repair resonated with doctors, nutritionists, and patients combatting conditions such as Lyme disease, IBS, arthritis, and celiac disease.
“Thoughtfully curated with an eye toward ease of implementation, these recipes are some of the most powerful tools in the anti-inflammatory kit. I couldn’t recommend this resource more.”
– Kelly Brogan, MD, NY Times best-selling author of A Mind Of Your Own
In the expanded second edition of their award-winning book, the Piazzas have added 52 new recipes, revised over two dozen, and included updated diet guidelines. Of the 182 recipes, 161 are dairy-free, 155 are vegetarian, 136 are egg-free, 111 are Paleo-compliant, and every single recipe is gluten-free. They’ve even added a new “preparation” phase and seven-day full meal plan to help readers get off to a great start.
It’s a great-tasting program too, with recipes that include family favorites such as Sloppy Joes, Chicken Fajitas, Meatloaf, Coconut Chicken Tenders, Homemade Pasta, and Chocolate Banana Ice Cream.
“We make these recipes all the time for company,” states Gail Piazza. “No one has a clue they’re gluten-free, or that we used dairy substitutes. … unless we tell them,” she added.
“Patients, patients’ families, and physicians will all benefit from this book as they attempt to achieve wellness. It’s like having a nutritionist sit down with every patient.”
– Steven J. Bock, MD, FAAMA, DAAAM, Integrative Lyme MD,
Secretary, International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS)
“Beyond the positive changes in my health, I feel relieved that the food I’m eating is nourishing my body rather than causing it distress. And I’m not alone, we continually hear from readers about the profound changes they find when they dedicate themselves to this new way of eating,” said Laura.
“I wasn’t thinking about a book. I just wanted to help my daughter any way I could,” added Gail. “But it’s the personal stories about the difference the book has made for so many, that makes this the most gratifying experience of my career.”
