With half of all Americans taking at least one prescription medication (and 20% of us taking three or more!), there is a clear need for something to change. Combined with growing scientific evidence pointing to the Standard American Diet being at least partly to blame for our declining health, it’s time for a dietary shift toward nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory whole foods that promote health, rather than undermine it. In the first part of The Healing Kitchen, you’ll learn all about what foods to eat and why, based on an ancestral diet template with contemporary scientific underpinnings. With a collection of practical tips and visual guides to distill this information into simple real-life actions that you can implement easily in your home today, this book is the closest thing to a guarantee of success that you can have when embarking on a Paleo diet healing protocol.
The Healing Kitchen features over 175 mouthwatering recipes that make eating healthful foods easy enough to fit even into the busiest of lives, while being so tasty you’ll likely forget you’re on a special diet to begin with! Compliant with the Paleo autoimmune protocol, every meal is budget-conscious, requires a minimal time commitment, uses no special equipment, and needs no hard-to-find ingredients—yet, the whole family will love it! There’s no need to suffer with bland or boring foods on your journey towards optimal health—and The Healing Kitchen is all about enjoying tasty food while nourishing your body.
The recipes span the gamut from easy peasy mains and simple sides to breakfast favorites and timeless treats. Even better, each recipe is labelled by cooking strategy, so you can easily identify meals that are one-pot, use 5 ingredients or less, take 20 minutes or less, can be made ahead, feature a slow cooker, and on-the-go foods—to make planning your day effortless! The Healing Kitchen also includes twelve weekly meal plans, each with a shopping list, to help you get completely organized in your kitchen! Even better, the selection of thematic meal plans hone in on your individual needs. Can’t spend more than 20 minutes cooking at a time? The 20-minute-or-less meal plan makes sure your time spent preparing food is as minimal as possible. Always eating on the run? The on-the-go meal plan will suit your needs perfectly. Have a whole crew you need to satisfy? The family-favorites meal plan will please kids and grown-ups alike. Want to do all of your cooking for the week in one afternoon?

New York Times bestselling author of Paleo Kitchen and Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook
The Healing Kitchen Delivers! In The Healing Kitchen, authors Alaena Haber and Sarah Ballantyne PhD have created a beautiful, practical, and absolutely essential resource for anyone suffering from autoimmune disease. At first glance, the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), which The Healing Kitchen is based upon, appears to be a restrictive and difficult way of eating, but after seeing page after page of appetizing and AIP friendly recipes like Bacon-herb Biscuits, Honey Lime Chicken and Strawberry Salad, and Prosciutto and Fig Bistro Pizza the prospect of going AIP suddenly seems a lot more appealing. As we have come to expect from Sarah Ballantyne however, this book isn’t simply “another pretty face”, the science undergirding the recipes is rock solid and thoroughly researched, making this a stimulating read for both the intellect and the appetite.
