I suffer from many gut issues, including IBS (irritable bowel syndrome, though I think it has a new name these days). I chose to review this cookbook (even though I already have too many cookbooks) because of the fact that I hoped I’d find some relief inside this book. I am, slowly.
The Gut Health Diet for Beginners is more than just a cookbook. It’s a guide that will lead you on the path to a happier tummy. It’s filled with recipes made with foods that soothe ailing stomaches and increase your overall digestive health.
OK, aside from the fact that this is a cookbook with a meal plan, some other things that set it apart from your typical cookbooks is that it includes information on how your gut works and how food affects your gut.
The recipes offer a little something for everyone. There are recipes that vegetarians and vegans can eat, there are recipes for meat eaters, there are smoothies, and there are even desserts. The salads, stir-fries, and soups are my favorite recipes.
I am looking forward to trying all of the ones that sound appetizing (passing on the seafood options). What I like most is that the majority of the recipes use fresh foods (like fruits and veggies without cans and freezers).
I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
