Fix It with Food: More Than 125 Recipes to Address Autoimmune Issues and Inflammation

Michael Symon and Douglas Trattner. Clarkson Potter, $30 (256p) ISBN 978-1-9848-2553-7
In this practical volume, Iron Chef America winner Symon (Playing with Fire) turns his attention to a food regimen intended to reduce inflammation and its accompanying pain. Symon, who manages his rheumatoid arthritis and discoid lupus through diet, and his frequent coauthor, Trattner, identify wheat, meat, sugar, dairy, and alcohol as aggravators of inflammation. The first section of recipes introduces a 10-day cleanse via a meal plan called “The Reset,” which purges all five ingredients, essentially leaving behind whole grains, eggs, fruits, and vegetables, along with anti-inflammatory agents such as turmeric and walnuts. Breakfast choices include baked eggs in avocado, while lunch might be a warm spinach and mushroom salad, and, for dinner, stuffed peppers with black-eyed peas and quinoa. Among the dairy-free options, a cream of wild mushroom and barley soup gets its creaminess from oat milk, and its bone broth provides a healthy dose of collagen. Spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles sub for pasta in the flour-free section, and the natural sweetness of fruits star in sugar-free choices such as apple-and-cherry oat crisp. Whether coping with an autoimmune disease or simply seeking a flavorful, natural diet, readers will find fresh ideas here. (Dec.)
