From renowned cardiac surgeon and acclaimed author Dr. Steven R. Gundry, the companion cookbook to New York Times bestselling The Plant Paradox, offering 100 easy-to-follow recipes and four-color photos.
In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.
Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He’ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.
With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, The Plant Paradox Cookbook will show readers of The Plant Paradox—and more—how delicious it can be to eat lectin-free.

My New copy arrived this Morning and I’ve had a chance to look Carefully though it. With the exception of a few ingredients that will only be found in larger supermarkets that have a larger diversity of food products the rest of them Can easily be found in normal supermarkets most people have access to. As was stated in the early Review of this Book, the recipes Are Well laid out that most individuals Will be able to assemble & make without problems, including Me. For Myself, I’m Extremely Happy to have this Fine Book, and can now do away with almost all of the other cooking books I own. I’ve waited All of my Life (just turned 76) for just such a Book that finally shows & tells me the Proper ways of eating that Will Best keep me Healthy and away from doctors and potent toxic drugs that I have Refused to take anyway, opting for herbals & some supplements, Lots of Green veggies, a few fruits, and plain distilled water. So THANK YOU Dr. Steven R. Gundry, MD for Caring enough to Help Humanity. I Certainly Appreciate Your efforts.
Well, got the kindle version yesterday and am happy with this addition. The book is divided into two parts. I have already read the first part, which covers the Plant Paradox lifestyle. Second part is composed by the recipes, divided in categories. First part is important, a summary of the main book for those who want a refresher, or even a good introduction for those who haven’t had the opportunity to read the main book yet. That is, if you haven’t read his main book, don’t bother and get this one instead. You will find plenty well-explained and easy-to-read information covering pretty much all aspects of the lifestyle/diet proposed. I say that because I ended up reading the main book twice and is still fresh in order to compare them both. The second part of the book seems to be quite delightful. I have just prepared my first meal, the “Cream of Mushroom Soup”, and sincerely enjoyed the result. But of course, I have glanced all over and some recipes I have read entirely. I appreciate the fact that it contains a chapter dedicated to “Noodles and Bowls”, which can be a handy and delicious way to nurture ourselves in only one bowl. Each recipe has a brief description explaining some interesting details. As I could see, most recipes seem to be straightforward, and the ingredient list idem. Also, it’s important to note that the recipes will please both vegans or not. As a side note, although I am luckily in good health and full of energy to keep going on adventures, I sincerely believe this lifestyle/diet proposed by Gundry can be a healing approach to foster better health even if we don’t have any health issue. At first his viewpoints can be daunting, but it makes completely sense once we understand the “whys” behind it, as well as after complying with the program for only 2–3 weeks. I felt more vibrant upon starting his approach, my skin felt healthier after 2 weeks in, my digestive system seems to work even smoother, and I feel even lighter. Deep inside we all can find ways to create a more positive, meaningful and healthier lifestyle, nurturing from inside out. Nutrition, after all, is one of the foundation aspects. Besides Gundry’s approach, I do enjoy Mercola’s “Fat for Fuel” book and Longo’s “The Longevity Diet” book. After all they are all complementary and based on recent health studies/research. Haical
This is not your average follow-up cookbook to a best-selling diet book. As a former chef, I can scan recipes and know immediately if they are a hit or miss, and I’ve yet to see a recipe in this book that I won’t be excited to create. Most ingredients will be found right in your neighborhood grocery store, which is another nod to Dr. Gundry’s attention to detail. The recipes vary greatly and will appeal to many different tastes. Anyone that feels any degree of restriction in following the Plant Paradox protocol will be thrilled to dive into this book and start cooking. I’m inspired to just cook my way through from beginning to end.
