The Good Gut Cookbook delivers clear, concise advice, backed by the authority of Australia’s top gut specialists and our most trusted nutritionist.
An updated edition of an Australian Classic cookbook, which aims to help Australians living with digestive and gut problems, has been officially launched in Sydney at a breakfast attended by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
The Good Gut Cookbook has been updated by the Gut Foundation and highly respected nutritionist Dr Rosemary Stanton OAM to reflect new clinical evidence for good gut health.
Gut Foundation President Prof Terry Bolin OAM said, “There is rapidly evolving evidence around the complex role of the gut in a range of physical and mental conditions and people need to be able to access quality dietary information.
“With a plethora of fad diets and procedures being marketed to consumers, our aim with this cookbook is to provide trustworthy advice along with simple, nutritious and tasty recipes that can help people struggling to manage a gut problem.”
Dr Rosemary Stanton said, “A healthy diet, rich in many different types of dietary fibre makes the gut a welcome home for beneficial bacteria that then influence many aspects of health. To get the all-important variety we need, the Good Gut recipes feature vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, seeds and healthy wholegrains. They’re recipes for the whole family – healthy and delicious – and those vital good gut bacteria will love them too. Enjoy!”
The Good Gut Cookbook is published by HarperCollins and is available in bookstores and via the Booktopia website: Shop online.
