The Heal Your Gut Cookbook

Nutrient­-Dense Recipes for Intestinal Health Using the GAPS Diet

by Hilary Boynton, Mary Brackett

Foreword by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride

"Over my many years of healing through diet, especially healing the gut through diet, the problem has always been how to make the information and the food readily available to those in need. In the beginning the food was not to be had and the diet plans, recipes, and explanations were not to be found. Over the years this has begun to change. There are ever-expanding farmers markets, small businesses, and cooperative ventures that are filling the food-availability gap. Hilary's and Mary's book is a valuable addition to the question of what to do with the food and why. This book is another small step in my eventual fading away, as I can finally say 'it's all out there now. Just follow the advice and wonderful recipes; my work is done.'"

Thomas Cowan, MD, author, The Fourfold Path to Healing, and co-author, The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care

 

Simple, delicious, family-friendly recipes for those following the GAPS Diet.

“All disease begins in the gut," Hippocrates instructed more than two thousand years ago. Today, more people than ever are struggling with gut-related chronic diseases.

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a visually stunning cookbook created by GAPS Diet experts Hilary Boynton and Mary G. Brackett. The book gives readers more than 200 straightforward, nutrient-dense, and appealing recipes designed to heal your gut and thereby manage the illnesses that stem from it.

Developed by pioneering British MD Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders, including ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. Gut and Physiology Syndrome (also GAPS) likewise refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn's disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, GAPS will also appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health.

“Mothers are my heroes! This recipe book was created by two such heroes. The recipes are wonderful, and the book is full of useful tips and helpful guidance and inspiration. I thoroughly recommend it,” writes Dr. Campbell-McBride, author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome, in the book’s foreword.

Dr. Campbell-McBride designed the GAPS Diet to restore the balance between beneficial and pathogenic intestinal bacteria and seal the gut through the elimination of grains, processed foods, and refined sugars and the carefully sequenced reintroduction of nutrient-dense foods, including bone broths, raw cultured dairy, certain fermented vegetables, organic pastured eggs, organ meats, and more.

From basic bone broth and broth-based soups, such as maitake mushroom immune boosting soup in the first stage of the GAPS Intro Diet to roasted pork sausage with red onion and butternut squash, marinated cod fish tacos with coconut flour tortillas, and more, readers will discover a great deal of flexibility within this restrictive diet for delicious home-cooked and even kid-friendly meals. Readers will find recipes for salads, fish, poultry, meat, organ meats, vegetables, ferments, snacks, and even desserts, as well as sauces, dressings, and marinades.

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook also walks readers through the key cooking techniques and ingredients that form the backbone of the GAPS Diet: working with stocks and broths, soaking nuts and seeds, using coconut, and culturing raw dairy. Boynton offers an encouraging perspective on the life-changing improvements to her family's health, as she, her husband, and their five children followed this challenging, but powerful, diet.

The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a must-have if you are following the GAPS Diet, considering the GAPS Diet, or simply looking to improve your digestive health and—by extension—your physical and mental well-being.
