The Lectin Avoidance Cookbook

By Pamela Ellgen

Avoid the secretly dangerous proteins hiding in your favorite foods!
The old adage that too much of a good thing can be bad turns out to be true when it comes to many healthy fruits and vegetables. Researchers have discovered that these incredibly common foods contain plant protein called lectins, which when eaten in excess can cause many negative health issues from inflammation to diabetes.
Luckily, carefully targeted changes to your diet can result in a big reduction to your lectin intake–and without sacrificing nutrition. The 150 recipes in this book offer delicious alternatives to common dishes that avoid lectins while still providing delicious meals.
