Från AdLibris:Vad har goda bakterier, Platon, gröna bananer, vetenskapliga studier, kärlek och gurkmeja gemensamt?Att leva ett så friskt liv som möjligt är till stor del kopplat till vad du äter. Bloggen Food Pharmacy, som drivs av Mia Clase och Lina Nertby Aurell, handlar om just detta. Nu kommer också boken om hur du äter den mest hälsosamma och antiinflammatoriska maten, och allt serveras med en rejäl portion humor.Det här är en berättelse om inflammation, tarmfloror, onda och goda bakterier, vetenskapliga studier, hypokondri, metaanalyser, gurkmeja och antiinflammatorisk mat – dessutom förklarat på ett mer lättillgängligt sätt än du någonsin kunnat ana. Självklart med recept och fakta om de antiinflammatoriska hjältarna i köket – som du snart inte kommer att kunna vara utan.All fakta är väl underbyggd genom professor Stig Bengmark, f.d. chefskirurg och klinikchef på Lunds universitet, med över 30 års erfarenhet av forskning på magens bakterier och hur maten vi äter påverkar kroppen. Han menar att alla kroniska sjukdomar har en och samma orsak – ett uttröttat immunförsvar orsakat av kronisk inflammation. Därför ville Mia och Lina ta reda på hur man kan leva så antiinflammatoriskt som möjligt. Det kommer du också vilja.

Was it a 4-star book because of the odd dialogues or a 5-star book because of its solid and current information about gut flora, prebiotics, and inflammation? But, the yummy cold potato recipe... Okay, honestly, that one tipped the rating. These Irish genes don't allow for me to abandon potatoes which, as it turns out, are a source of an important prebiotic, resistant starch. Other topics include glycation of protein from cooking at high temperatures* and natural anti-inflammatory foods.Beyond the cold potato recipe, so important because of its resistant starch, this is a book filled with wise information about healthy eating and trying to minimize inflammation through diet. As many of my readers know, I have celiac disease, an autoimmune disease in which exposure to gluten significantly damages the small intestine, and can cause chronic inflammation, malabsorption, and dysbiosis that impacts your entire digestive tract. Many celiacs suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, as well. Even without an autoimmune disease, your whole GI tract can be unhappy when you have the wrong bacterial microbiome and that unhappiness can cause inflammation, and make you more prone to metabolic syndrome or diabetes type 2.This book explains in layman's terms how and why to eat better. It's a good starting point for anyone with a New Year's resolution to change the way they eat.*And on this point, you might want to check out my review of Sous Vide At Home.

    A short, interesting story about the connection between health and food. Specifically the link between bacteria, intestinal flora and our overall well-being.

If you think this book may not be for you because:1. you eat a healthy breakfast every day2. you drink dark roast coffee for its antioxidants3. your favorite fruit is a nice ripe bananaYou are already making three unhealthy choices. According to the Food Pharmacy:1. breakfast is our least important meal.2. The worst villains in advanced lipoxidantion products and advanced glycation products are French fries and dark roast coffee.3. Eat green bananas. When good-for-you vegetable fibers ripen, they morph into unhealthy sugar, a typical example being the banana.Surprised? There are more surprises within the pages of this book. Great design, tasty recipes and subtle humor throughout.

    Full of dubious nutritional advice, wrapped in an annoying package. Made some of the recipes and they did not come out that great. Maybe something was lost in translation, and what seems charming in Swedish just seems eye-rolling in English.

The book puts together a nice collection of information about diet and inflammation. Some of the practical implications are quite radical even for me - I consider myself to be far from mainstream in healthy eating - for example some of the recipes offered. I tried the universal soup but I almost feel there’s a mistake, that’s how strong the raw broccoli tasted. But all in all I like the bold facts to be presented and not toned down for practical reasons - let everyone make their own conclusions. I wonder that most of the referred sources are a bit old; has all the latest science been considered?

    Polish translation is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Almost each and every scientific name is translated wrong. Sometimes I was laughing hard, sometimes I wanted to cry. ;) I like how inspiring this book can be, but some of its thesis are not really supported by any believable research that I know (and my job is to know this kind of stuff). Read it to get in mood for a healthier lifestyle, but do not treat it very seriously.

    A healthy stomach is the new black. If you eat the right food loads of antioxidants, preferably raw but heated to 80 C is ok, mix it with Turmeric and green smoothies and intermittent fasting you are on the right track. Nothing really new but a good introduction for beginners. I have tried both the Turmeric shoot and the green smoothie based on mainly kale.

    HopelessTwo mommy bloggers who constantly torpedo their credibility with narration about being clueless and easily distracted by nail polish ... Why would anyone listen to this or them? They say they are not preaching extremes but think one out of touch surgeon is God like and then they serve sauerkraut for dinner, nothing else ,but that isn't extreme. I didn't like what this book had to say or how they said it.

    A to Z Alphabet Reading Challenge - (F)----------This book was written by two Sweden girls (sisters? friends? other?) who also write a blog together at www.foodpharmacy.blog and was a really fun book to read, although their little interruptions of monologue were a little silly. This book is based off their blog. It is about foods, inflammation, and your digestive system... (down to your colon)...and how to keep it healthy with good bacteria. Some stuff I already knew, but I actually did learn a lot more. A to Z Alphabet Reading Challenge - (F)----------This book was written by two Sweden girls (sisters? friends? other?) who also write a blog together at www.foodpharmacy.blog and was a really fun book to read, although their little interruptions of monologue were a little silly. This book is based off their blog. It is about foods, inflammation, and your digestive system... (down to your colon)...and how to keep it healthy with good bacteria. Some stuff I already knew, but I actually did learn a lot more. Food goes into your small intestine first, then travels down into your large intestine and into your colon. Foods high in carbs never reach your large intesine to feed the good bacteria unless they are surrounded with fiber and/or fat. They will otherwise be processed in your small intestines, which releases insulin hormones and throws your blood sugar out of whack and also starves your good bacteria in your lower intestine so the bad guys can take over, causing inflammation, which is the start of ALL disease. Fiber and good fats with your meals or snacks slows down the breakdown of thise carbs and gives it time to make it all the way down. They throw a recipe into just about every chapter, and I eventually want to try them all. I did make the Food Pharmacy's Welcome Shot (whew...very strong) and the Luke Skywalker Kale Chips (delicious!). For me, this book was a very inspirational read. It encourages you to focus on what you can have, rather than what you cannot have. Take it slow! Add to your diet one good thing and focus on that for a while, then add another, and another. It's okay to eat your old way on occasions. We are only human, and live in a real world of distractions and real limited time. There's just so many good tips and helpful hints, I practically have the whole eBbook highlighted.

    Well worth reading. Most of the advice was not new. Eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies. Avoid high-glycemic food. Avoid processed food. If you eat meat at all, eat organic and small portions. It did also present ideas new to me, for example, the fiber in potatoes that “dissolves” when cooked will “recrystallize” if the cooked potato is allowed to cool before eating; most foods (except tomatoes) will lose nutrients if cooked at temps above 212F, so cook low and slow. The presentation is clearly Well worth reading. Most of the advice was not new. Eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies. Avoid high-glycemic food. Avoid processed food.

The presentation is clearly written, beautifully designed, and charming in its light and humorous touch. I will try to incorporate these new ideas into my cooking — although I may go broke if I use as many avocados as they do!!

    I belive that what we eat will reflect on how we are copying with life and how we feel. Every year when I am visiting Sweden for summer I love to read all the new books about healty food. Unfortunately there are always some fashion in what , to my surprise, everyone thinks that THIS is what healthy food is considering as. This summer I read alot about anti-inflammatory food. I read tha books and take recepies that looks good. I cook and eat and if we like it we continue to eat it. If not....

    A mixed bag ...Interesting information. Recipes look good. Question some of their conclusions such as “gram positive bacteria are good, gram negative are bad.” Group A strep is gram positive — definitely not good to have. This impacted their credibility, in my view, which made me question some of their other conclusions. But ... as a vegetarian, I eat fairly well, ... the book has motivated me to try eating better. And that’s the point, right?

    The book is easy to read, humorous and good for anyone at the beginning of the healthy lifestyle path - it is inspiring to get started, encouraging to try new things and to stay curious, but for people who are already familiar with the subject of nutrition, health and environment, it might be too simple. I was expecting something more substantial and educational, but the overall impression is still one of the pleasant ones.

    Balances wit and information, is just the right level of quirky and personal and feeds (pun intended) you with the perfect mix of hard facts and anecdotal proof to make you want to dub it a Food and Health Bible and return your library book only to buy your own. Or possibly two own ones. One for highlighting and notes in the margin and one for revering... It cooould have used an extra round of proof reading but I'm not too bothered (and THAT is saying something, when it comes from me). Love it!

    A very interesting book to bring attention to our gut and its impact on our health. Full of practical advice and "prescriptions" for daily life I highly recommend its reading. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is that it is too much based on one single specialist research, although they used diverse bibliography, it still felt a little biased. Recommend as a starter for the subject.

    It is quite a simple book with recipes. I think it was a good one. Simple explanations of the science behind it all. Someone was criticising it that it doesn't give sources for the facts...except prof. Stig. I think it was made more as a storybook/ cookbook than a science book. Because I work in health system I know their facts are based on experiments. Anyway...a book I recommend!

    I found some great tips in this book that made me stop and think about the manner in which I can approach my weaknesses. My partner and I are currently trying to eat healthier and he has already lost about 15 lbs. after we started following the guidelines in this book and Real Food Heals. The two books, and their recipes are complementary of one another.

And the theories in this book does not match the theories on FODMAP. And I cannot serve all what is suggested to my family due to allergies. So I pick up some good advice here and there and leave the rest. And think of this book as a nice reading.

    Easy to read with facts and details presented clearly for the lay person’s immediate understanding, the Food Pharmacy presents a path to reducing inflammation and improving nutrition. It will not be easy as their recommendations restrict many foods commonly found in American diets. I have marked a few recipes and suggestions for implementation in my meal planning even though I am not yet ready to commit to the drastic changes suggested here.
