    This book is informative and full of good looking recipes. I think it boils down to leaning more to plant-based diet and eating 'clean' - the least refined and processed foods and ingredients. The author refers to 'studies' many times, but has not included information for any studies she refers to. I think it would have been nice to see some actual citation. Adding one to my reading challenge to compensate for adding this as 'read.' This book is informative and full of good looking recipes.

All recipes are backed by the latest research and reviewed by a James Beard award-winning registered dietitian allowing you to do the easy part: eat, enjoy, and feel your best! What I received was a SAMPLER, but unlike many I get, this one at least was a little longer and had relevant information in it, including the entire inflammation spiel. I am not sure how I feel about inflammation, leaky gut, etc. but I will admit that the recipes were healthy and yummy and I assume that the photos were stellar but they, too, were blacked out on the downloaded pdf I was given to review with. If you are looking for a healthy food cookbook, this is a great example of one - the recipes are easy, not too expensive .and easy to make. And since husband thinks bacon and eggs are BEYOND unhealthy, well the news that he can have them will make HIS day and maybe get him to eat some more of this book's recipes. (although I have no idea where to find the necessary uncured bacon where I live - is that pork belly??) As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by Millennials on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🥓🥚🥓🥚🥓 NOTE: I cannot link this review to LinkedIn - there is something wrong with the linking/programming and it will not happen.

    In exchange for my honest review, I was given an electronic advance copy of this book. I have an older model Kindle paper white and the formatting of the introduction and beginning chapters did not transfer into a readable format for me. The sentences were jumbled together and lists were mixed up, also not pictures were present and there were notes present to the editor or copy setter.

I have an older model Kindle paper white and the formatting of the introduction and beginning chapters did not transfer into a readable format for me. The sentences were jumbled together and lists were mixed up, also not pictures were present and there were notes present to the editor or copy setter. Because of this I missed most of the explanation of inflammation and its maliciousness. However I have an autoimmune issue so I am personally familiar with it. The book begins with a disclaimer that this is not medical advice and advises that the reader seek the advice of the medical professional of their choice. These statements gave me confidence in the author and publisher. Many books do not include this and I feel it is the morally and medically responsible thing to do. After explaining how the author came to know about inflammation and its presence in many of the main medical conditions plaguing people today; she covers the symptoms and causes. As a nutritionist the author suggests that food can aggravate the inflammation or help it. She lists foods to watch, foods to avoid and foods to include in your diet. As a way to make eating healthy easy the author mentions Simple Staples. Items to prepare ahead of time that make cooking easier through the week. This could be a big batch of lightly seasoned chicken, sauces or roasted veggies that are then easy to through into a quick stir fry or breakfast bowl. Also included is one weekly meal plan for each of seven different medical issues along with the recipes. Ending with lists of seasonal fruits and veggies by the season they are available, gives the reader a blueprint for healthy eating and reducing inflammation in their body. More a diet and nutrition book than a cookbook, this title will be a great addition to the library’s nutrition and diet section.

    Since I received a "sample" of this book from the publisher, it's difficult to provide a full review. However, I'll do my best with what was provided! From what I saw, the book is lively and well put-together. The graphics are eye catching and easy to read, and the information is laid out in an ordered fashion. With some diet books, there are simply large blocks of text, and that can get a bit wearing, but "Meals that Heal" had a lot of photos, type-settings and other touches that made the book Since I received a "sample" of this book from the publisher, it's difficult to provide a full review.

With some diet books, there are simply large blocks of text, and that can get a bit wearing, but "Meals that Heal" had a lot of photos, type-settings and other touches that made the book aesthetically appealing. The book's premise is that inflammation is the key to solving gut health, and preventing a number of illnesses like cancer. The author - Carolyn Williams - presents recipes that eliminate certain food groups, while boosting others. So - you might give up dairy, but you can try new foods like tahini or nutritional yeast. I love cheese, but even I know it's not the absolute best thing for our bodies. Appreciated the emphasis on eggs and other whole proteins, as well as lentils and other wholesome foods. But I should note that I completely disagree that coconut oil is bad for us. I was disappointed to see such an old-fashioned belief (not backed up by research) put forward in this book. Again, the sample of the book didn't show many recipes, but what I saw looked promising and delicious - and the book really is visually appealing. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity.

    There are a lot of factors to consider when eating to change your health, and all of that can be overwhelming. She has done a great job of explaining the science and the thought behind eating within each food category. It definitely takes the stress level of a diet change down some. Sadly, because I was reading an advanced version, I did not get to see all of the recipes, just a handful of them for breakfast.

    Thank you Tiller Press and Netgalley for a copy of Meals That Heal by Carolyn Williams for review. Publishing June 25/19. I really liked how adaptable this cookbook was! Basic, easy to find ingredients for the most part but my favourite parts were the guides. She had basic ways to build things like a breakfast bowl with plenty of suggestions for each layer so you could adapt it to your tastes, budget and diet so easily and also mix it up a lot. You could easily make a different bowl every morning Thank you Tiller Press and Netgalley for a copy of Meals That Heal by Carolyn Williams for review. Publishing June 25/19.

You could easily make a different bowl every morning for example if you wanted just by mixing up her basic recipe and changing the ingredients. Love these books to be able to learn how to adapt recipes to my family’s tastes and even to tailor each to our individual diets or needs!

    I received a copy of this book as part of a goodreads giveaway. The beginning of this cookbook sets up the recipes by describing nutritional facts in a very consumable way. There are descriptions of the terminology, which foods are good/bad, and also summary pages with easy reference guides. I love how there is a realistic expectation of how much you can realistically make from scratch vs purchasing, with recommendations of specific prepackaged products you can buy while meeting the expectations I received a copy of this book as part of a goodreads giveaway.

The recipes included look fresh and delicious. There are also recommendations on making the recipes kid friendly (like blanching basil for pesto to give it a milder flavor). There are descriptions of what to prep in advance to prepare for an easy week of meals, and sample meal plans at the end with recommendations for specific focuses (autoimmune issues, heart health, diabetes, etc) Overall I think this is going to be a really useful cookbook on my shelf and I’m excited to add recipes here to my repertoire.

    I'm really impressed with this book! I was expecting very little educational text and mostly recipes. That is not what it is. It is very educational throughout the book, and the literature matches the evidence based approach I'm familiar with as a health psychologist. It's full of color, organized designs to make seeing things easier, and pictures for every recipe.

There are about 10-20 recipes per food chapter, which I feel is plenty, and it ends with meal plans directed at various different diseases: diabetes, heart disease, autoimmunity, cancer, brain health, and pain/joint health. Each one is a combination of the recipes included for one week. Something else I was impressed with was that it's pescatarian and vegetarian friendly, despite having meat options as well. I'm pescatarian, and very few cookbooks make it easy on me to find the recipes that fit my diet. This book does. The lunches and meat (duh) chapters are the only ones that are meat heavy. There's a fish chapter that's separate and a vegetarian chapter as well. Don't expect desserts 😉

The book recommends a week long detox before utilizing the recommendations. It provides suggested menu items for the detox. There are several to choose from. I found this book to be highly relevant to me as I have fibromyalgia which is an autoimmune disorder. I may have difficulty limiting red meat, but I will be adding more of the recommended fish. Anyone with inflammation and chronic pain should check out this book.

    I received a kind of sample of MEALS THAT HEAL, not in the usual format and somewhat erratic across the pages, but I'll comment on what I could discern. After reading the beginning I felt as though I had actually learnt some useful information about the reasons why we suffer certain ills and many of them seem to be caused either because we're eating the wrong foods, or too much of some and not enough of the other. I had read previously that inflammation within the body can cause problems and it I received a kind of sample of MEALS THAT HEAL, not in the usual format and somewhat erratic across the pages, but I'll comment on what I could discern.

I can't comment on the graphics or photographs because they were either not complete or not there at all, but there were recipes that looked delicious and that I will certainly follow.

    I've been reading about anti-inflammatory food plans, and this book seems a step above in that it uses (for the most part) practical ingredients and each meal can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Large photographs that are attractive. This is a great cookbook that has ways to prepare healthy meals and also includes healthy tips. So many diseases and illnesses can be traced back to foods that cause inflammation. Whole Foods are definitely the answer and with this cookbook taste delicious.

I'm going to make her granola which reviewers rave about. From the anti-inflammatory books, this seems like one of the most practical.

    The recipes in this book are really good. Like, really, really good. And they don't look like they would be. They're simple and don't *sound* like they'd be as good as they are. There's a chicken salad with cashews and apples and fresh basil that is just incredible. The black bean quesadillas take maybe 10 minutes to put together, but they're great. This book is full of surprises like that. Give it a try. The recipes in this book are really good. Like, really, really good. And they don't look like they would be.
