To move more easily? Enjoy your life and activities more? Many of us may find that an anti-inflammatory diet can help, we just don’t know where to start and are overwhelmed with the possibilities. In addition, anti-inflammatory diets are often bland and boring.
That is not the case with Stacked With Flavor: An Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook With Dairy-free, Grain-free & Low-Sugar Recipes. On her personal journey to discover methods and foods to deal with chronic pain, author Shawna Coronado began with research and a visit to a nutritionist specializing in inflammatory conditions, which changed her life to the positive forever. She stopped eating dairy, sugar, and grains; scientific evidence points to how a lifestyle of eating anti-inflammatory foods can lessen and even eliminate inflammation in the body that is often blamed for diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, allergies, chronic pain, and a variety of diseases and disorders. To help her own health, she’s created an overall plan that includes growing and eating organic produce, exercising regularly, and therapeutic gardening. In Stacked With Flavor, she shares her powerful and personal story of what she has learned along the way: cooking methods to add over-the-top flavor to nutritious yet everyday foods; delicious recipes for imbuing your food with LOTS of flavor using mixtures of various herbs and spices and other techniques; and tips and meal plans to help you start your own journey to better health.
Applying the knowledge Shawna gained from her guiding nutritionists and doctors to her daily life helped trigger a remarkable transformation; she went from taking medications as a solution to her health issues, to a life with more than 80 percent reduction in pain, reduced allergy reactions, improved moods, and increased energy, all without prescriptions. Help your family stay healthy, lose weight, feel better, and have more energy while reducing aches and pains and chronic inflammation. Stacked With Flavor allows you to discover Shawna’s secret of placing foods on top of another to enhance color, scent, and taste, and her herb and spice combinations to increase the flavor of your foods.

For though bread baking has its sourdough, brewing its lambic ales, and pickling its wild fermentation, standard Western cheesemaking practice today is decidedly unnatural. In The Art of Natural Cheesemaking, David Asher practices and preaches a traditional, but increasingly countercultural, way of making cheese—one that is natural and intuitive, grounded in ecological principles and biological science.
