First let me start by saying that I’m so excited to be sharing this cookbook with you today. Anti-Inflammatory Eating Made Easy is a new cookbook by Michelle Babb and is a simple approach to lessen inflammatory effects with 75 delicious recipes and a whole foods-based nutrition plan. Michelle is a registered dietitian with a private practice here in Seattle where she specializes in mind-body nutrition, weight management and inflammatory digestive disorders. I’ve worked with Michelle before at PCC Cooks and I can tell you that she knows her stuff and makes amazing food.
I’m sure you’ve probably heard the term “inflammation” before because it’s one of the latest buzzwords in the health and wellness field. Inflammation is the body’s way of responding to injury and is a natural and healthy state when we’re injured that helps speed up the healing process.
However, inflammation is an issue when it becomes chronic because chronic inflammation is linked to a variety of diseases and symptoms, such as achy joints. When it comes to our food choices, eating the wrong types of foods can lead to inflammation, especially if we overdo it on the sugar, processed foods, and refined carbohydrates.
