The Good LFE Cookbook
Low Fermentation Eating for SIBO, Gut Health and Microbiome Balance
Improve gut health and maintain digestive balance with healthful and delicious recipes for every meal.
The Good LFE Cookbook: Low Fermentation Eating for SIBO, Gut Health, and Microbiome Balance opens up a new world of eating options for those contending with SIBO, IBS, and other GI-related issues, as well as for readers interested in learning more about how various foods affect digestive health. An estimated 70 million people in the United States are affected by SIBO, IBS, or one of the more than a dozen other diseases linked to digestive health, and fully 74% of Americans say they live with symptoms of digestive discomfort. Your diet has a significant impact on your digestive health and personal microbiome, and choosing which foods to eat can be a frustrating challenge.
Arranged by season, the recipes in The Good LFE Cookbook focus on fresh, in-season ingredients to prepare meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with delicious recipes for appetizers, snacks, and indulgences for whenever that craving strikes. From family favorites like Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs, and Fish Tacos to more elevated dishes perfect for entertaining like Rosemary Olive Oil Lamb Chops and Branzino Stuffed with Herbs and Lemon, the recipes are a welcome addition to any kitchen, whether you entertain frequently at home or just an everyday cook for your family, or somewhere in-between. Each recipe is accompanied by comprehensive nutritional information developed with gastroenterologists and dietary experts. This book includes a number of handy gut-health tips and culinary hacks throughout.
Created by an inspired home chef and a registered dietitian, the easy-to-execute recipes draw from more than 20 years of medical research from leading experts in the field of microbiome studies and will help you improve your knowledge of your microbiome and how to maintain digestive balance with every meal.
