This cookbook offers a beautifully illustrated treatment of this nutrient-dense cooking style, with wholesome, time-tested recipes, including restorative bone broths, revitalizing kombuchas and tonics, and hearty and economical bean and lentil dishes. Contrary to nearly all of today's trendy diets, the traditional foods diet is not a restrictive eating style--it focuses on eating diversely and seasonally.
You might be surprised to discover exactly how difficult it is to reach nutrient sufficiency eating a modern diet. While our food system is flooded with high-energy foods, these products only serve to fill us up and offer close to nothing in the way of true nourishment. An adequate supply of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, fatty acids, and fibers, to name a few) are needed by the body to perform countless functions and provide essential structure. Nutrient density in the diet impacts both the outcome of chronic illness and the prevention of future disease.
In The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen, Mickey Trescott teaches you everything you need to know about eating like a “nutrivore.” You’ll start with a comprehensive tour of nutrients that are essential for both optimal health and deep healing, with handy charts to help you identify which foods contain them in varying amounts. You’ll also get an overview of autoimmune protocol diet details, some creative ideas for affordably sourcing the highest-quality and most nutrient-dense ingredients, and tips for setting up your kitchen to cook whole foods.
The centerpiece of the book is Trescott’s impressive collection of flavorful, approachable recipes that comply with the strictest phase of the autoimmune protocol: no grains, legumes, eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds, or nightshades. If you have further eating restrictions, a handy chart helps you locate the recipes that are low-FODMAP, coconut-free, or low-carb/ketogenic. If you are pressed for time, the same chart will help you identify recipes that take 45-minutes or less to prepare, can be made in your Instant Pot, or only use one cooking vessel (for easy cleanup).
In addition to the recipes, you’ll find five sets of meal plans and shopping lists to quick-start your approach to eating for nutrient density. The seasonal meal plans focus on ingredients that are at their peak ripeness and availability in the spring or fall seasons, while the budget meal plan incorporates recipes with an eye for affordability. For those who are interested in deep healing, the “nutrivore” meal plan incorporates only recipes that sit at the top of the nutrient density spectrum. Lastly, for those embarking on this journey as a couple, the two-person meal plan accounts for larger servings (while still only requiring one cooking session per day).
If you are looking for a practical, approachable resource for the autoimmune protocol that places nutrient density at the core, look no further than The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen. Trescott’s recipes and guidance help you set yourself up for success without sacrificing time or flavor!
