There's nothing I didn't like about the design or content of the book. Sure we are used to cookery books having lavish graphics and pictorial content - The Functional Nutrition Cookbook doesn't provide this, it is aimed at those who value substance over design. Our copy is up alongside Jamie, Lorraine, Anjum and Rick's books, but it'll be used to plan our family's meals just as often as the classic cook books. -- Donald Scott
I am personally very delighted to find a book with so many useful and relevant recipes under one cover, I cannot be alone in spending far too much time hunting down suitable meal options for complex requirements... It will certainly get a lot of use in my practice and can highly recommend it for any practitioner's bookshelf. -- The Nutrition Practitioner
This unique cookbook with downloadable PDFs of printable recipes looks beyond intervening in the symptoms of health problem and addresses the ways in which diet can be used to help correct underlying imbalances in the body... designed for clients who wish to optimise their health, whether or not they are currently facing health problems... an invaluable resource for nutritionists, health professionals and their clients. -- Embody Magazine
In the transition from recommendation to action, people need a
'road map' to help them make relevant and meaningful changes. The

systems-orientated therapeutic meal options that will complement or
independently propel individuals towards their goal of
nutrition-orientated optimal health.
Practitioners of functional medicine and others will cherish this book, as it solves the question: so what CAN I eat, and how do I make it tasty, healthy and family friendly?
