Cooking Techniques for the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet
Part I: Meat Stock and Bone Broth
Bringing new clarity to the GAPS diet in non-clinical language all readers can understand, expert chef, author, and teacher Monica Corrado shores up a critical but often misunderstood aspect of the GAPS healing protocol—meat stock and bone broth. When you make them. How you make them. Why you make them. And, crucially, why you shouldn’t mix them up.
Part II: Culturing Dairy
Using nonclinical language all readers can understand, chef, author, and teacher Monica Corrado continues to unravel the myths and misconceptions people bring to the Gut and Psychology Syndrome diet. Where the first book in her series examined the important differences between meat stock and bone broth, this time the author turns the spotlight on dairy. Even if you have dairy sensitivities or allergies, this easy-to-understand, step-by-step guide will show how to successfully implement a range of nutritious cultured dairy products back into your diet.
Part III: Lacto-Fermentation
The third volume in Monica Corrado’s Cooking Techniques series is an informational powerhouse of a book. This time the focus is on gut-healthy lacto-ferments: what they are, why you need them, how to make them, and so much more. Whether your goal is to introduce these healthy foods into your diet, use them as a fundamental part of the GAPS healing protocol, or enjoy your own homemade kefir, yogurt, beet kvass, veggie medley, and sauerkraut (to name a few), Cooking Techniques III has the goods.
Part IV: Nuts, Seeds, Beans, and Grains
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. Learn how to unlock the immense nutritional power hidden in nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes. Whether you’re on the GAPS healing protocol or you simply want to take control of your digestive health, the fourth volume in Corrado’s Cooking Techniques series will help you get the most out of these wonderful but little-understood foods.
