" If you think 'healing diet' means renunciation of delicious foods, you are in for a surprise. The Heal Your Gut Cookbook shows that you can enjoy every morsel while your body recovers from a lifetime of nutrient deficiencies and processed food. The recipes are delicious and the book beautifully illustrated. It is a wonderful contribution to the literature on the topic."

- Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation


"The GAPS Diet can change your life; the challenge is how to apply it. Hilary Boynton to the rescue! She is a busy mother of five and lives by the guiding principal of 'let your food be your medicine.' Along with photographer Mary Brackett, they have created this beautifully illustrated manual for creating delicious and nutritious GAPS meals. The book provides easy, mouthwatering recipes. It offers practical ways to restore your gut to optimum function and help you and your family take control of your gut health."

- Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com


"More than half of American children are currently diagnosed with a chronic illness, and much of that statistic can be attributed to a long list of damaging exposures (from antibiotics to GMOs) that have destroyed the American gut. For all the damage we have done to our gut and immune health, there is hope. Healing the gut through nutrient-dense, restorative diets like the GAPS Diet is absolutely foundational to recovery. Recovery is within reach, and The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a terrific companion for that journey."

-Beth Lambert, author of A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in America's Children,

executive director of Epidemic Answers and executive producer of The Canary Kids Project


" Over my many years of healing through diet, especially healing the gut through diet, the problem has always been how to make the information and the food readily available to those in need. In the beginning, the food was not to be had, and the diet plans, recipes and explanations were not to be found. Over the years this has begun to change. There are ever-expanding farmers markets, small businesses, and cooperative ventures that are filling the food-availability gap. Hilary's and Mary's book is a valuable addition to the question of what to do with the food and why. This book is another small step in the eventual fading away, as I can finally say 'It's all out there now. Just follow the advice and wonderful recipes; my work is done.'"

-Dr. Thomas Cowan, author of The Fourfold Path to Healing and co author of The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care


"If you feel enslaved to standard food and pharmaceutical remedies, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook provides a comprehensive can-do liberation plan. These pages scream 'freedom to be healthy!' As a farmer servicing wellness-lovers, I yearn for the kind of understanding and participation a recipe roadmap like this can offer. Wellness eaters create wellness landscapes.
