Summary

Sometimes, when something goes wrong in your body, you notice it right away. But other times, the damage occurs unnoticed for a long time and can show up as a host of other problems. Take for instance the variety of inflammatory diseases like arthritis and asthma. Even cancer is a symptom of something else going on in your body. This “something” is often connected with chronic inflammation occurring in your body. 

Inflammation is not always a “bad guy”. Sometimes, you need it in order to protect and heal your body. Like when you broke that bone; the pain signals your body that something is wrong. The swelling and redness indicate that blood is rushing to area and fluid is leaking into the tissue to cushion the broken bone. But what happens when inflammation goes “wrong”?

Chronic inflammation means your body is inflamed all the time and begins to think your own body is the problem. It begins to attack your healthy tissue and cells in an attempt to “heal” it. When this happens, more problems arise. Things like type-2 diabetes and heart disease, for example, are results of chronic inflammation many times. The challenge with chronic inflammation is that you may not realize it is happening right away. You may not see the swelling or redness or may dismiss it as nothing serious. You may also treat a symptom of chronic inflammation without realizing what it really is. Unfortunately, treating the symptoms alone are not going to reduce the inflammation wrecking havoc on your body. You need to treat the source of the problem: the inflammation itself.

Treating inflammation is not an easy task; it requires a slow process of healing your body and bringing it back to the balance that it craves. It is made even more difficult by the pressures and habits of Western culture. Eating foods that aggravate inflammation are only making the situation worse, and you have probably been doing this for years! These foods you are choosing are probably making the symptoms and results of chronic inflammation worse and worse. But when you change it up and choose foods that will fight inflammation instead, you can start finding your way back to health. 

This lifestyle is not just about losing weight or looking good, although those are often side effects; it is more about healing your body and being healthy. Just remember, it is a lifestyle, and it does take time to reverse the years of damage chronic inflammation has caused. Be patient with yourself! You are doing the right thing now in supporting your health. Remember that each time you make that decision to reach for something anti-inflammatory rather than your old habits.

The more you understand the power of the foods that you put in your body, the better. And the more you discover how to stock your kitchen and plan out meals, the more empowered you become.

Anti-inflammatory diet is the one that is supposed

Anti-inflammatory diet is the one that is supposed to reduce inflammation in your body and make you feel more healthy. This is the book I like to have in my kitchen because it is full of various creative ideas I would have never thought of myself. I must say anti-inflammatory is not the diet that is supposed to be fun but it actually is thanks to this cookbook.

I'm happy to cook for seven people at a time

I'm happy to cook for seven people at a time, and I need to adjust the portions so that every single person will be well-fed and stay happy. Turkey Soup and Turkey Burgers make a constant rave with my kids, and I'm going to try as many recipes from here as I can. Anti-inflammatory diet is rather a lifestyle than a diet - of that I'm sure.

I recommend it to all the anti inflammatory diet

I recommend it to all the anti inflammatory diet beginner cooks – directions are easy-to-follow even if you’ve never had any dietary cooking experience. The table of contents is broken down into sections so the cookbook is easy to navigate through.

Good Diet Plan

Every recipe in this anti inflammatory cookbook is a healthy suggestion that can be easily modified to whatever cooking type you need right now. Recipes are delicious and cruelty-free, since they are prepared in accordance with the anti-inflammatory principles, and you can be sure in the fine quality of them. Don't get greedy – it's not good to prepare all the recipes you've liked inside a couple of days (like I did). Try slowly and patiently – you'll see how great it can be to have additional ideas in your pocket.

I like it

Of all the cookbooks I’ve ever tried to use this one seems to offer the most delicious recipes to try. It would make an easy and enjoyable addition to any diet – I’m a vegan, and trying to avoid gluten, soy, dairy, so I had to make certain tweaks to the recipes to make them suitable for the needs I have but apart from that this cookbook is a great deal at this price, since five hundred recipes are fairly enough to keep a home cook entertained for a long time.

I like everything about this recipe book

I like everything about this recipe book, and I think it’s worth a try, especially if you don’t have a recipe book to refer to. I recommend you to try Zucchini and Egg Breakfast Bowl, it's a good one!

represent one of those dietary plans

This cookbook represent one of those dietary plans one can easily incorporate into real life! One of the best things for me is that this diet is full of fruits. All my favorite ones are here - oranges, melons, watermelons, loads of berries - nothing to be afraid of, nothing to limit. Also, you can adapt this diet to the possibilities you have. For example, if your budget is limited you can stick with the affordable versions of anti-inflammatory products and decrease the amount of forbidden ones. I definitely recommend this cookbook to those people who are interested in healthy cooking, even those who have no need to keep it anti-inflammatory all the time.

This is a great resource, and gives real life eating plans and recipes. Less restrictive than some diet recommendations, but on target with all the other literature.

Great cookbook with lots of information before you even get to the recipes. If you suffer from any inflammatory diseases I highly recommend this book, it explains the inflammatory reasons and how many of the foods we eat worsen the condition.
