Lose weight and heal your gut with more than 100 delicious Plant Paradox–approved recipes!
In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers around the world to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly “healthy” foods: a class of plant-based proteins known as lectins. Found in nightshade plants like tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as in grains, legumes, and conventional dairy, lectins attack the lining of our gut and disrupt the balance of our microbiome, leading to leaky gut syndrome and widespread inflammation, weight gain, and illness.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry gives fans of The Plant Paradox what they’ve been asking for: more recipes! In this easy-to-follow cookbook, Dr. Gundry shows readers how simple and delicious it is to live lectin-free (or at least lectin-reduced). In addition to an overview of the Plant Paradox program, a pantry guide, and sample meal plans, Dr. Gundry shares more than one hundred recipes designed to help heal the gut, promote weight loss, and quell inflammation.
He also includes simple kitchen hacks—like peeling and seeding vegetables, and pressure cooking grains and legumes—that reduce or eliminate lectin content, making many favorite foods safe to consume. With dishes that cover every meal of the day, including Pesto-Baked Eggs; Lemon, Kale, and Chicken Soup; Spinach Artichoke Lasagna; and Truffled Mushroom Mac and Cheese, and decadent desserts such as Chocolate Mint Cookies, Pistachio Ice Cream, and Olive Oil Rosemary Cake, Dr. Gundry makes it easy for everyone to clean up their diets and live lectin-free.
