Cook for Your Gut Health: Quiet Your Gut, Boost Fiber, and Reduce Inflammation
(as of Jul 25,2021 16:18:27 UTC – Details)
There’s good reason to eat with your gut in mind. A healthy gut optimizes digestion, but that’s not where it ends; it’s vital to helping us absorb nutrients, and plays a role in supporting our immunity and emotional health. We went to the kitchen to develop a collection of easy, satisfying ways to get in the vibrant vegetables, hearty grains, and optimal fiber that support the gut in meals like Eggs with Sweet Potato and Swiss Chard Hash, Miso-Ginger Soup with Halibut and Zucchini Noodles, and Turkey Meatballs with Lemony Wild Rice and Artichokes.
These ATK recipes find creative ways to forgo often-irritating alliums without forgoing flavor, and can all be lactose-, dairy-, or wheat-free (or even gluten-free): We focus on ancient grains in dishes like Quinoa Taco Salad and Curried Millet Pilaf with Almonds and Raisins, and offer gluten-free substitutions, if you need them, for good-for-you whole grains like barley and farro. In addition to 60 recipes that naturally fit low-FODMAP guidelines (the medically backed diet for common gut disorders like IBS), a grand majority of the remaining recipes provide customization instruction so you can adapt them to be low-FODMAP as well. That means every recipe has an answer to the way your gut tells you to eat.
Whether you’re trying to calm occasional gastrointestinal symptoms, are among the 1 in 5 Americans who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or simply seek to nourish yourself with whole foods, this book’s for you.

Eating for your gut shouldn’t be restrictive; it should be abundant.
These foolproof healthful recipes were developed with the guidance of nutritionist and dietitian Alicia A. Romano. This book gives you an in-depth education on the evolving science of gut health, how to eat for it, and The Low FODMAP Diet. Dig in.
What is the Low-FODMAP Diet?
This medically tailored diet is highly researched in the realm of IBS. The Low FODMAP Diet consists of eliminating commonly bothersome fermentable carbohydrates for a spell, with a structured reintroduction of different types. The end goal: symptom reduction and the most liberal diet possible. A large portion of the recipes in this book satisfy the requirements of the complete elimination phase of this diet to support you if you need it—while still getting adequate fiber.
So Good (for You) Recipes
Beef and Oat Berry Soup
Low-FODMAP and gluten-free oat berries have substance, chew, a whole lot of fiber, and a cooking time that works for a simmered soup to boot. Enhancing the broth with aromatics sautéed in garlic oil, porcini mushrooms, tomato paste, and soy sauce took our irritant-free soup to the next level.
Roasted Chicken Breasts with Kabocha Squash and Kale
For this hearty and fiber-packed one-pan chicken dish, we pair earthy kale with squash. We chose kabocha over butternut, delicata, or sweet potatoes; the squash that looks like a squat pumpkin is just as sweet as others but, unlike them, is completely free of FODMAPs.
Peanut Noodle Bowls with Edamame and Cabbage
Tender-chewy brown rice noodle dishes are a comforting treat—especially for those with limited noodle options—as they are naturally gluten-free and low FODMAP. The bowl boasts a colorful medley of savory, tangy, and crunchy vegetables; curry powder in the peanut sauce adds warmth.
Lentil Salad with Pomegranate and Walnuts
If you’re used to dried lentils, take note: Through the canning process, lentils are the only legumes that lose their fermentable carbohydrates, so they’re low FODMAP (and high in fiber). This impressive side pairs the firm yet creamy canned legume with a tart vinaigrette, pomegranate seeds, crunchy walnuts, and radishes.
