Ellyn Satter's Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family takes a leadership role in the grassroots movement back to the family table. More a cooking primer than a cookbook, this book encourages singles, couples, and families with children to go to the trouble of feeding themselves well. Satter uses simple, delicious recipes as a scaffolding on which to hang cooking lessons, fast tips, night-before suggestions, in-depth background information, ways to involve kids in the kitchen, and guidelines on adapting menus for young children. In chapters about eating, feeding, choosing food, cooking, planning, and shopping, the author entertainingly helps readers have fun with food while not eating unhealthily or too often. She cites current studies and makes a convincing case for lightening up on fat and sodium without endangering ourselves or our children. The book demonstrates Satter's dictum that “your positive feelings about food and eating will do more for your health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and what not to eat.”

"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson

Most of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.

At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.

The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:

Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins.

With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

“Your help with understanding my baby has made all the difference with feeding,” says a parent. “Your booklet saved us from some real struggles with feeding,” says another. Following your advice made feeding my baby and toddler easy and so much fun,” says a third. “My friends and their children get into such hassles with feeding!” Ellyn Satter has helped millions of parents through the infant and toddler phases in feeding with her best-selling books, videos, presentations, media events, and website publications. Feeding the First Two Years is the first of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series written by Ellyn Satter, Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized authority on child nutrition and feeding. In Feeding the First Two Years, Satter show parents how to work out the kinks with breastfeeding or formula feeding, when and how to start solid foods and progress to table foods, how to navigate the sudden and bewildering almost-toddler and toddler changes, and how to solve feeding problems. For decades, parents have found that feeding is simple when they follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding. In this remarkable book, Satter shows parents in words, pictures, and feeding stories how to do their jobs with feeding, then let their children do their jobs with eating. Satter is a Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized expert on child feeding. She is the author of four best-selling, full-length books about feeding and eating and the producer of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense DVD series that shows what to do—and not do—with feeding.
Feeding with Love and Good Sense: 18 months through 6 years “I can’t believe it is so simple,” says a parent who adopted Satter’s methods instead of putting her toddler on a diet. “The very day, the very first meal that I followed your advice, everything was better,” says another. Ellyn Satter has helped countless parents through the toddler and preschool phases in feeding with her best-selling books, videos, presentations, media events, and website publications. Feeding Your Toddler and Preschooler is the second of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series written by Ellyn Satter, Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized authority on child nutrition and feeding. In this remarkable book, Satter shows parents how to give themselves a break, head off feeding problems before they start, and raise healthy children who are a joy to feed. One in three children has feeding problems: s/he is a seriously picky eater, grows too fast or too slowly, has poor mealtime behavior, doesn’t eat fruits and vegetables or drink milk, or has special needs with feeding. Studies show that almost all parents pressure, reward, threaten, and bribe their children to eat. Many parents run themselves ragged to get food into their children, preparing special foods or separate meals or letting their children drink special formulas or eat junk food. There is a better and far simpler way. For decades, parents have found that feeding is simple and rewarding when they follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility. In the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series, Satter shows parents in words, pictures, and feeding stories how to do their jobs with feeding and let their children do their jobs with eating.
