Low-Fodmap Diet Cookbook : 150 Simple, Flavorful, Gut-Friendly Recipes to Ease the Symptoms of Ibs, Celiac Disease, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative C

$19.95
More Info
The low-FODMAP diet is changing lives. If you suffer from the pain and discomfort of a digestive condition such as IBS, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or nonresponsive celiac disease, it just might change yours.

The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet (cowritten by Sue Shepherd) introduced this revolutionary treatment, which is rapidly becoming the first-line recommendation by doctors and dietitians worldwide. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for a group of difficult-to-digest carbohydrates found in foods such as wheat, milk, beans, soy, and some fruits, vegetables, nuts, and sweeteners. More than three quarters of adults with IBS who reduce their intake of these foods gain relief.

Now, this follow-up cookbook brings you 150 simple, delicious, and brand-new recipes that are full of flavor but low in FODMAPs. The mix includes:

  • breakfasts to start the day off right (Blueberry Pancakes; Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins)
  • starters and sides for every occasion (Spring Rolls; Chicken, Bacon, and Pesto Mini Pizzas; Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers)
  • soups and salads full of flavor (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad; Creamy Seafood Soup)
  • entrées that make you feel good (Chicken and Vegetable Curry; Speedy Spaghetti Bolognese; Beef Satay Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce)
  • desserts that satisfy (Flourless Chocolate Cake; Almond Cookies; Baked Blueberry Cheesecakes).
  • The low-FODMAP diet puts an end to suffering in silence, fearing the possible consequences of every meal, or confining yourself to a handful of bland, "safe" foods. The only thing missing from this comprehensive collection is the FODMAPs--and you'd never know it!

    Hollywood celebrities are doing it. Corporate moguls are doing it. But what about those of us living in the real world--and on a real budget?

    Author and holistic health practitioner Victoria Moran started eating only plants nearly thirty years ago, raised her daughter, Adair, vegan from birth,

    and maintains a sixty-pound weight loss. In Main Street Vegan, Moran offers a complete guide to making this dietary and lifestyle shift with an

    and spiritual benefits of being a vegan. This book provides practical advice and inspiration for everyone--from Main Street to Wall Street, and

    everywhere between.

Once you read this, you'll know it's possible to get healthy and enjoy doing it--even if you live in Paramus or Peoria."--Michael Moore

    "A great read for vegans and aspiring vegans."--Russell Simmons

    "Yet another divine gift from Victoria Moran. Main Street Vegan covers it all--inspiration, information, and out of this world recipes. This book is a gem."--Rory Freedman, co-author Skinny Bitch

Victoria Moran covers every aspect of plant-based eating and cruelty-free living, with everything you need to make healthy changes stick."--Neal Barnard, MD, president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and NY Times bestselling author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart

    Mindful Carnivore

    Mindful Carnivore

    $15.95
    More Info

    After a childhood spent fishing for trout, Tovar Cerulli began to experiment with

    vegetarianism in his teens. By the age of twenty, he was a vegan. A decade later, in

    the face of declining health, he returned to omnivory and within a few years found

    himself heading into the woods, rifle in hand.

    Through his personal quest, Cerulli bridges the seemingly disparate worldviews of

    hunting and vegetarianism: can fishing and hunting be respectful ways for humans

    to connect with nature and their food? How harmless is vegetarianism? How do

    we make peace with the fact that life is sustained by death? At once compassionate

    and probing, The Mindful Carnivore offers fresh, thought-provoking ideas about the

    food on our plates.

    What's holding you back? What excuses are you making up that are stopping you from living your best life? I used them all, and look where that got me! Are you ready to stop living insane and get real with yourself?

    Al Roker's aha! moment came a decade ago. Closing in on 350 pounds, he promised his dying father that he wasn't going to keep living as he was. That led to his decision for a stomach bypass--and his life-changing drop to 190. But fifty of those pounds crept back until he finally devised a plan and stuck to it.

    Never Goin' Back is Roker's inspiring, candid, and often hilarious story of self-discovery, revealing a (slimmer) side of his life that no one knows. With illuminating and sometimes painfully honest stories about his childhood, his struggle against the odds to make something of himself, and his family life today, Roker reveals the effects that a lifelong battle with weight issues can have on a person--and how, regardless of the frustration and setbacks, you must never lose faith in yourself (just inches).

    Most important, he knows that losing weight is as much--if not more--a state of mind as of body. That's why he's here: to recharge your willpower and see you through it like a friend--with warmth, humor, and a healthy new outlook on life.

    Paleo Manifesto

    More Info

    In The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health, John Durant argues for an evolutionary - and revolutionary - approach to health. All animals, human or otherwise, thrive when they mimic key elements of life in their natural habitat. From diet to movement to sleep, this evolutionary perspective sheds light on some of our most pressing health concerns. What is causing the rise of chronic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and depression? Is eating red meat going to kill you? Is avoiding the sun actually the best way to avoid skin cancer?

    Durant takes readers on a thrilling ride to the Paleolithic and beyond, unlocking the health secrets of our ancient ancestors. What do obese gorillas teach us about weight loss? How can Paleolithic skulls contain beautiful sets of teeth? Why is the Bible so obsessed with hygiene? What do NASA astronauts teach us about getting a good night's sleep? And how are Silicon Valley techies hacking the human body?

    Blending science and culture, anthropology and philosophy, John Durant distills the lessons from his adventures and shows how to apply them to day-to-day life, teaching people how to construct their own personal "habitat" that will enable them to thrive. The book doesn't just address what we eat, but why we eat it; not just how to exercise, but the purpose of functional movement; not just being healthy, but leading a purposeful life.

    Combining the best of ancient wisdom with cutting edge science, Durant crafts a vision of health that is both fresh and futuristic.

    Carbs and portion sizes are not the problem when it comes to weight loss, contrary to popular belief. Foods that are revered by traditional weight loss programs, such as turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes, may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with each person's unique chemistry, they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, inflammation, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, and depression.

    Lyn-Genet's groundbreaking 20-day program helps readers finally unlock the mystery behind what does and does not work for their individual bodies. With detailed meal plans, recipes, and effective, personalized advice, you will discover how to:
    Lose a half a pound a day while enjoying generous servings of foods you love
