The Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook by Chrissy Freer


As always, with my reviews of cookbooks, I am most interest in the quality of the recipes as a dedicated home cook. But I like that this book is suitable for people that are worried about chronic inflammation, and the recipes are all about putting anti-inflammatory foods into your diet, rather than processed foods and too many saturated fats and refined sugars.


The author is a qualified nutritionist with over 20 years’ experience, so she brings the necessary experience to be creating this book. There are 100 recipes, accompanied by full-page colour photographs that are very professional and appealing.


Standout recipes so far are: Falafel with tomato and radish salad, Chickpea, zucchini and mint salad, Raw beetroot and lentil salad with mustard dressing, Pumpkin, bean and coconut soup, Japanese pancakes with mushrooms and chicken, Fish tacos with spiced tomato and toasted coconut salad and Baked sweet potatoes stuffed with spinach, feta and pepitas. There is also a sweet section I haven’t got to yet.


The Anti-Inflammatory Cookbook is excellent, with easy-to-use recipes, and with the bonus of being good for people worried about chronic inflammation.
