From the renowned cardiac surgeon and author of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox comes a companion cookbook, filled with 100 easy-to-make lectin-free recipes with accompanying four-color photos
In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry offers an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He also shares his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.
With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for tasty smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, The Plant Paradox Cookbook shows you how nutritious and delicious lectin-free eating can be!
