From Annalise Roberts, celebrated author of the bestselling Gluten-Free Baking Classics, comes her first full-scale gluten-free cookbook—a breakthrough in healthier eating, featuring 100 great new recipes. The Immune Defense Diet Cookbook is a distinct departure from other diet cookbooks. Roberts and co-author Claudia Pillow, Ph.D. (her sister and partner in the foodphilosopher.com website) focus on how you can manage daily food-related decisions in order to strengthen your immune system, prevent disease, and lose weight by eating real food.
Conceived as part science-based diet book, and part cookbook, The Immune Defense Diet Cookbook provides food choice explanations and guidance, cooking advice, and flavorful, culturally diverse recipes. But unlike most diet cookbooks, this new book also includes simple, practical, easy-to-understand cooking instruction. The book starts with a basic explanation of the health benefits of gluten-aware eating, and then delves deeper into how basic food choices can improve one's life and health. With their focus on cooking instruction and technique, the authors launch the recipe portion of the book with sauces and gravies, which are the cornerstone to being able to make all kinds of delicious meals. Included are more than twelve innovative recipes for sauce and soup bases and traditional gravies that feature pureed vegetables to thicken and enhance flavor in lieu of flour and fats. A more traditional recipe for Gluten-free Roux and Classic Cheese Sauce is included at the end.
The rest of the book is laid out like a classic cookbook: soup, chowders, and chili recipes are showcased in Chapter 6. The authors zero in on the art and science of making good tasting vegetables in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 has their short list of grain-based recipes. A rich variety of fish, poultry and meat recipes are detailed in Chapters 9 through 11. And Chapter 12 features twelve delightful desserts, many of which do not involve baking. These are the recipes the authors make everyday in our own homes, the ones that our family and friends look forward to, and the ones they count on to help make their family's meal times both healthy and happy.
The Immune Defense Diet Cookbook is sure to appeal not only to fans of Annalise Roberts's earlier books, but also to anyone interested in learning how gluten-free cooking can improve their health, prevent disease, and promote weight loss.
