The Heal Your Gut Cookbook
Nutrient-Dense Recipes for Intestinal Health Using the GAPS Diet
"The GAPS Diet can change your life; the challenge is how to apply it. Hilary Boynton to the rescue! She is a busy mother of five and lives by the guiding principle of 'let your food be your medicine.' Along with photographer Mary Brackett, she has created this beautifully illustrated manual for creating delicious and nutritious GAPS meals. This book provides easy, mouthwatering recipes. It offers practical ways to restore your gut to optimum function and help you and your family take control of your gut health."
—Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com
"If you think 'healing diet' means renunciation of delicious foods, you are in for a surprise. The Heal Your Gut Cookbook shows that you can enjoy every morsel while your body recovers from a lifetime of nutrient deficiencies and processed food. The recipes are delicious and the book beautifully illustrated. It is a wonderful contribution to the literature on the topic."
—Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation
"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.'"
—Dr. Thomas Cowan, author of The Fourfold Path to Healing and coauthor of The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care
"If you feel enslaved to standard food and pharmaceutical remedies, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook provides a comprehensive can-do liberation plan. These pages scream 'freedom to be healthy!' As a farmer servicing wellness-lovers, I yearn for the kind of understanding and participation a recipe roadmap like this can offer. Wellness eaters create wellness landscapes."
—Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm
"As a homeopath, this is now my recommended go-to guide for my clients and students. Instead of explaining what they ought not to eat, I now direct them to this little masterpiece. It offers freedom from worry and is loaded with satisfying meals. A must-own!"
—Joette Calabrese, homeopathic consultant and author of How to Raise a Drug-Free Family System
"Hilary Boynton, busy and dedicated mother of five, has teamed with photographer extraordinaire Mary Brackett to create a beautiful book that accurately and elegantly lays out delicious, delightful, and fun recipes for the GAPS diet.

"I couldn't stop reading Hilary Boynton's and Mary Brackett's book on the GAPS Diet, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook. I found myself famished for the amazing information and guidance they offer on how to improve gut health and ultimately restore optimum immune function. Hilary and Mary do a wonderful job of weaving their own personal and family stories of health redemption together with fantastic, mouth-watering recipes that build on Hilary's food philosophy. Moreover, the recipes are easy to follow. I plan to make this book available to my friends and family, so they can all benefit from the important information here."
—David Gumpert, author of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights and The Raw Milk Revolution
"The GAPS protocol is a particularly effective antidote to the standard American diet. But GAPS involves a big lifestyle change and a serious commitment to cooking from scratch. This change can be intimidating, even to experienced home cooks. Hilary Boynton's and Mary Brackett's new book makes GAPS accessible to a wide audience, both through its no-nonsense narrative and through its wealth of straightforward, delicious, and healthy recipes. It's as if she is saying, 'You are not alone. . . and here's what we're having for dinner.' Anyone following GAPS, or even just thinking about it, will appreciate the recipes and ideas in this book."
—Alex Lewin, author of Real Food Fermentation
"More than half of American children are currently diagnosed with a chronic illness, and much of that statistic can be attributed to a long list of damaging exposures (from antibiotics to GMOs) that have destroyed the health of the American gut. For all the damage we have done to our gut and immune health, there is hope. Healing the gut through nutrient-dense, restorative diets like the GAPS Diet is absolutely foundational to recovery. Recovery is within reach, and The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a terrific companion for that journey."
—Beth Lambert, author of A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in AmericaÂ’s Children, executive director of Epidemic Answers, and executive producer of The Canary Kids Project
