Beverly Lynn Bennett is a vegan chef and baker and the author of the new book, Anti-Inflammatory Foods and Recipes. This book gives you a vegan approach to dealing with inflammation.
After a fall while working in the restaurant industry, Beverly severely injured her back. After meeting with several doctors, she began doing research into alternative approaches to healing, including different foods that might help her condition. She learned about anti-inflammatory foods, began including more of these in her diet, and started seeing a real change in her health.
Beverly describes the many health consequences of being in chronic inflammation. These can include an increased incidence of cancer, increased levels of insulin that can cause diabetes, and aging. Blood clots, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, or possibly Alzheimer’s Disease are other possible implications. Allergies, asthma, skin issues, and autoimmune diseases can also arise as a result.
Beverly recommends listening to your body. Treat yourself as your own experiment to determine what’s good for you and what is not. Incorporate different foods with anti-inflammatory properties and pay attention to changes in how you look and feel.
The book includes recipes with a variety of foods spanning all different colors. There are mixes of sweet and savory recipes, which are also gluten-free. Each anti-inflammatory ingredient is highlighted in a different color within each recipe, which makes the guide easy to use.
