    Even after discussing why sugars are bad for anti-inflammation diets the cookbook has recipes that call for raw cane sugar and brown sugar. Same with dairy, there are recipes that call for cheeses. This was disappointing because it wasn't a matter of ignorance (as she points out by discussing the problems with these foods in the opening), instead it felt like the recipes were being compromised to make it more appealing to a mass audience as opposed to the people I thought it was for (those strug Even after discussing why sugars are bad for anti-inflammation diets the cookbook has recipes that call for raw cane sugar and brown sugar.

This was disappointing because it wasn't a matter of ignorance (as she points out by discussing the problems with these foods in the opening), instead it felt like the recipes were being compromised to make it more appealing to a mass audience as opposed to the people I thought it was for (those struggling with inflammation issues). Additionally, the recipes that didn't call for these ingredients weren't impressive enough to make up for this.

    nonfiction/cookery (health). This was written by a food-sensitive chef, but for a more mainstream audience (including people with health issues not traditionally thought of as food-sensitive). Diet is one of the hardest things for people to agree to change, so I think this is why the recipes offered aren't as specific to sensitive people, though she does sometimes offer alternatives if you do happen to be sensitive to one of the ingredients.

I did like the intro/preface (written by the non-celiac but still food-sensitive author and a doctor who is at least familiar with the connections between foods and certain inflammation-related ailments), but didn't see anything special in the recipes. More of a book to check out from your library and browse, rather than for purchase.

    Absolutely inspiring. Great resource for one who is navigating a healthier diet. Each dish has been bursting with flavor, worth planning and prep. Compliments abound when I cook these recipes.

    Inflammation is a natural occurrence in the body, but if it happens too much it can wreak havoc. This cookbook has a great introduction that explains inflammation and gives some personal stories of how food healed inflammation-related issues for the author and others. I really liked that she gave a list of "feel-good" foods and foods to avoid that are the most likely causes of food-related inflammation.

    Sugar is an inflammatory food. Why would you have it in your recipes?

    Supremely unhelpful for those of us with a million food allergies. I'm sure this will make someone's life easier, but not mine. Supremely unhelpful for those of us with a million food allergies. I'm sure this will make someone's life easier, but not mine.

    This was a re-read for me. I didn't find anything of interest to pique my making a trip to the kitchen.

This is, of course, a concern for someone like myself who was hoping to find a good source of recipes that cater to many food sensitivities. Myself being nightshade sensitive, there are recipes that include tomatoes and peppers, for example, that she offers to omit, however, she doesn't mention to omit the chipotle peppers within that same recipe. Aren't chipotle peppers also nightshades? Or curries that she suggests to omit the curry powder/paste for nightshade intolerant readers. But omitting the ingredients that make it curry, seems unappealing to me. You might as well offer "flavorless curry" to the nightshade sensitive readers. Or just say "hey, don't make this if you've got a nightshade intolerance." Admittedly, I haven't made anything from this cookbook yet. But browsing the recipes, I've found myself a little disappointed. One recipe titled "Pan-Seared Mushrooms with Caramelized Shallots," had instructions where the shallots were only added to the pan towards the last 90 seconds of cooking. That's not... caramelization though? That's just sautéed shallots. Which is fine. But why not just call it what it is? Anyway, moments like this make me question the quality of the recipes. Basically, I was looking for a book that catered to multiple food sensitivities, without feeling like you were sacrificing the flavor of a dish as a result. This seems like a good option for gluten and dairy free folks. But for those of us who have multiple food sensitivities, we can probably find a better source elsewhere. Basically, I feel like, if you're going to title something "anti-inflammatory cookbook," it should include recipes that cater to ALL the major inflammation triggers listed in the introductory segment of this book.

    Lovely photography, a decent blend of fussy and not fussy recipes. A lot of "rinse and dry chicken" directions, which is weird, considering I'm pretty sure we've known for a while that we definitely shouldn't be doing that. I'm also side-eyeing some of her prep time estimates; I think she's definitely underestimating some things to keep them all at under 30 minutes of prep. Some interesting vinaigrette and bean recipes,, but overall pretty standard recipes. Lovely photography, a decent blend of fussy and not fussy recipes.

    The beginning of this book is the gold. It has great explanations of the anti-inflammatory theories and even a prescribed course of action. The recipes were standard and it always irks me when a recipe doesn't have a photo along with it - not every photo needs to be a full page, I'm sure a nice Polaroid sized photo would fit here and there too. I'd highly recommend it for the beginning of the book. The beginning of this book is the gold. It has great explanations of the anti-inflammatory theories and even a prescribed course of action.

    The informational part of this book was good, talking about the types of foods that trigger inflammation and giving guidelines for eating to avoid inflammation. However, the book didn’t have a lot of recipes - a lot of smoothies, dressings, etc. The small bites chapter was the best. This is worth checking out if you’ve been having digestive issues. But you may have to look elsewhere for a more comprehensive diet plan.

    Some very helpful dietary guidance for chronic inflammation. An excellent resource to start the elimination diet journey. The recipes don't really provide a lot of help in the way of alternatives for allergens encountered (e.g. dairy). Some very helpful dietary guidance for chronic inflammation.

    Nice compilation with issues A few things bothered me about the book. They used soy for several recipes, which I'm not a fan of. I liked the ideas because there was a huge variety. I especially liked the night shade substitutions. Nice compilation with issues A few things bothered me about the book. They used soy for several recipes, which I'm not a fan of.

    I enjoyed reading this book and not just because I love to cook. I liked reading about the author’s story and why she wrote the book as well as gaining a fresh stock of new recipes. I liked learning about the role inflammation plays in our health and learning about food that addresses the issue of inflammation.

I liked learning about the role inflammation plays in our health and learning about food that addresses the issue of inflammation. The book was an easy read with helpful images and lots of practical tips and alternatives. The only thing I felt the book lacked, since the author seemed to take a “look at me I’m relatable” approach to sharing her story, which was effective and true, was the failure to acknowledge that many people, even in first-world nations just don’t have regular access to the resources required to cook as this book suggests on a day-to-day basis. The author does a great job of pointing out budgeting issues and seems to understand that this is a financial commitment, but again fails to hit home the fact that there is a large population that her book won’t be able to help and not because they can’t get access to her book. Still, I currently have the means and regular access to most of the resources needed to try out at least some of these recipes on a regular basis. I simply need to make it a priority. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn some anti-inflammation recipes.

So, I got this as a recommendation and decided to try the cookbook and see if I liked and could pull off the recipes and then think about changing my diet depending on the results. I like that she does a kind of mini explanation of her approach, and why and how it's supposed to work. I have already tried two recipes and both came out well. I especially loved that she gives info about possible substitutions if an ingredient is a problem for you. I have been frustrated in the past when I read one chapter that tells me to eat "---" but then I find out in the next that it is a food that triggers a different issue - and nowhere is there an explanation of what to do in that case. I also loved that she gives storage directions. When you have people just learning to cook -- or to cook with these kinds of ingredients - it's important to tell them whether it needs to be refrigerated, kept in an airtight container on the counter.... I can't wait to try more recipes. :-)

    There are some great recipes in here. However with my auto-immune disease sugar (even the natural kind such as molasses and honey) can cause flare ups. There were many recipes that called for these. I would have rated this book higher if it would have had less recipes containing these ingredients.

    Borrowed this from the library to see if it might have recipes that help to reduce GERD/acid reflux symptoms. I was surprised to see that citrus fruits and dried chiles were on the "feel-good foods" list. Some decent recipes but not the cookbook for me.
