Nourishing Meals (October 11th, 2016)

Nourishing Meals is geared towards raising healthy children from pre-conception onwards. This cookbook and guidebook provides 365 healthy gluten-free recipes and current research to support your family in health and wellness. With autism rates rising, childhood obesity at an all-time high, and the ever-increasing rate of food allergies, we asked the question: How can we raise our children in the current environment so they can not only survive, but THRIVE?

It can be daunting to live a whole foods lifestyle in today’s busy world—even more so to prepare plant-rich, allergen-free meals that’ll get the whole family around the table. Nourishing Meals makes it easy and fun with dishes that burst with flavor, such as their Cherry Pecan Salad, Butternut Squash and Pinto Bean Enchiladas, Chipotle-Lime Roasted Chicken, and Banana Coconut Cream Pie.

Recipes in the book are free of the most common allergens: gluten, soy, and dairy, as well as refined sugar. And these dishes are designed to appeal to everyone, including vegan, vegetarian, seafood, and meat-eaters. In addition to wonderful food, we offer easy, doable steps to help you change your family's health, tips for making the transition easier, and ways to get the kids excited about wholesome foods. We map out the best foods and recipes for every stage of having a family, from pre-conception and pregnancy through each year of a child's life. And explain in accessible terms what makes our recipes so effective for achieving optimal health.

This NEW edition features more than 30 new recipes, and many of the original recipes have been updated. This new edition also includes over 60 beautiful all-new food photos featured in two inserts.

With an easy, tasty recipe for every day of the year, it’s never been simpler to adopt a healthy, whole foods lifestyle!

The Elimination Diet (March, 2015)

The Diet Designed Just for You!

Could the toast you ate for breakfast bring on your afternoon headache? Could the milk in your coffee cause joint pain and brain fog? Could your healthy tofu stir-fry slow your metabolism?

Yes—there is an age-old, powerful connection between what you eat and how you feel. Just as no two bodies are the same, no two diets work for everyone. The only way to discover your ideal diet is to follow an Elimination Diet that will help you link foods to symptoms and customize a diet that works for you.

Known for their ability to radically improve overall health, Elimination Diets are growing in popularity. But there’s no definitive book that explains how to follow one safely and effectively—until now. THE ELIMINATION DIET guides you through a proven three-phase program that detoxifies the body and promotes fast healing:

Phase 1: Detoxification—A 2-day green smoothie and juice fast calms the immune system and removes toxins from the body. 
Phase 2: Elimination—For 2 weeks, you will eliminate potentially inflammatory foods from your diet, which will ease symptoms quickly. 
Phase 3: Customization—For 2 months, you will test different foods to see what works for you and what doesn’t, resulting in a tailored diet you can enjoy for life. 

Complete with 125 delicious recipes, shopping lists, and meal plans, THE ELIMINATION DIET is a complete resource for you to improve your health and feel better, naturally.
