The new book Recipes for Repair: A Lyme Disease Cookbook is now available from Peconic Publishing, LLC.
The book includes 151 recipes plus practical tips designed to help anyone feel better through healthier eating. It is especially helpful for people with Lyme disease and other ailments, as it supports the anti-inflammation diet developed by Kenneth B. Singleton, MD, MPH, in his 2008 book The Lyme Disease Solution.
Co-author and photographer Laura Piazza became familiar with Dr. Singleton's Lyme Inflammation Diet when researching her own chronic Lyme disease.
Laura asked her mother, Gail Piazza, to develop additional recipes for the diet (Gail has an MA from NYU in Food and Nutrition and specializes in recipe development). The extremely satisfying results inspired the pair to propose a companion cookbook to Dr. Singleton. Recipes for Repair: A Lyme Disease Cookbook is the result.
"Gail and Laura have created a book that is not only healthful, but also beautiful and easy to put into practice," writes Dr. Singleton in his foreword. "Food-based healing is possible, and Recipes for Repair: A Lyme Disease Cookbook is a wonderful resource to help you accomplish your healing goals in a way that's highly satisfying to all of your senses."
The authors worked with Dr. Singleton to update the diet based on his experience using it with patients. The cookbook includes 50 food modifications, a revamped description of principles and practices, and new guidelines addressing specific health issues.
The new recipes support the Lyme diet while being delicious and appealing enough for everyone to enjoy. Clear, simple directions, basic definitions and cooking tips, and practical, money-saving suggestions help cooks with any degree of experience. Dietary preferences are accommodated by the inclusion of many vegetarian, low-sugar, and gluten-, dairy-, or egg-free recipes, all highlighted and cross-referenced. Beautiful color photos and a clear and attractive layout help provide inspiration and encouragement.
