In the fourth volume of her Cooking Techniques series, Monica Corrado explores the wonderful world of nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes. As traditional cultures have known for centuries, in order to make these foods easily digestible and derive the maximum nutrition they offer, we must put a little effort into preparing them.
Corrado not only teaches her readers these time-honored methods and treatments with easy-to-understand and easy-to-execute instructions, but she also explains why we should eat nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes, when we should eat them, and where they fit in the GAPS diet.
Like the first three volumes in the series, this book is both a teaching tool for future GAPS practitioners and an essential reference for individuals on the GAPs healing protocol—and, of course, for anyone who simply wants to take control of their digestive health.
Want to learn about the other books in the series? Part I: Meat Stock and Bone Broth highlights the important distinction between these two foods and the role they each play in GAPS. Part II: Culturing Dairy gives hope to folks with dairy allergies and sensitivities by teaching them how to slowly integrate these crucial foods into their diet. Part III: Lacto-Ferments is a master course in yet another pillar of the GAPS diet. (Get all three volumes with the Cooking Techniques bundle.)
If you are just starting GAPs—heck, even if you are well on your way—it can seem as if there is much to learn, and learn quickly, in order to restore your health and feel good again. This is why renowned chef, author, and teacher Monica Corrado channeled her deep well of experience and expertise into her Cooking Techniques series. Each book is a guidepost to help you along your way.
Includes a foreword by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, creator of the GAPS diet and author of the original book on the topic, Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression, and Schizophrenia.
