Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Cookbook Edition

Auto Draft Dr. Will Cole 42

As the wise Hippocrates once said “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food.” This is a central principle in functional medicine and something we advocate to our patients and as a staff implement in our lives on a daily basis. Healthy eating doesn’t have to mean eating like a rabbit and eating simple, flavorless meals. However, it is easy to get stuck in a rut when you are cooking as many meals as possible at home. Cookbooks are a great way to get new ideas and wake up your tastebuds. Look no further for some new dinner inspiration:

Emily Miller – The Whole 30 Cookbook

The Whole30 cookbook is a game changer in my home! It’s easy to feel like eating healthy means you will only be having chicken and broccoli served three different ways, but this doesn’t happen with whole30. I love having creative recipes at hand while knowing I am serving my family important and healing nutrients!

Andrea Cogley – Danielle Walker’s Against All Grains Celebrations

As someone who is grain free and dairy free this has opened up so many options that not only I can enjoy, but enjoy with my family as well. I am never at a loss for what to make for big family gatherings or when having friends over since the recipes are loved by all – paleo or not! The dairy free ranch and salad recipes are among some of my most loved!
