Fix it With Food, Michael Symon

Recently I read a book that has me thinking a lot more about the food I eat. With the chaos of the 2020 pandemic, I did not think that it was the right time to go on a restrictive diet. May be hard to find some of the foods needed in the recipes. Anyway the book is written by Michael Symon.

MICHAEL SYMON is co host of Food Network's Iron Chef America and Burgers, Brew & 'Que and was a co host on ABC's The Chew for seven years.

When Michael Symon found out he had rheumatoid arthritis and external lupus, he suspected that what he ate—or didn’t eat—could make a profound difference in his levels of inflammation and how he felt. So he committed to a food “reset” on The Chew—no red meat, white flour, sugar, dairy, or alcohol.

Michael used social media to share his experiment with his fans, and was shocked by the outcome: after completing the reset, he felt amazing. He discovered that dairy, sugar, and processed flours are his food triggers, and that by avoiding them, his inflammation essentially vanished.

Michael came up with more than 125 recipes to satisfy his cravings without aggravating his body, including Ginger and Chile-Roast Chicken, dairy-free Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti Squash with Arugula Pesto, and Apple and Cherry Oat Crisp, among many others. Now, for the first time, he is sharing these recipes, as well as a guide on how to identify your food triggers and create a meal plan that works around whatever ingredient causes your discomfort so that you too can enjoy incredible food without sacrificing your health.

Some time this summer I want to give this a try and see if there are foods that are effecting my health. This book is great, not much to read, just a lot of good recipes.
