Review:

"Diners of all stripes and evacuation schedules will find Svetcov's lighthearted collection of 125 colon-cleansing dishes informative and effective. The usual suspects (coffee, bran muffins, black bean and corn salad) are on display, but even veteran commode commandos will be surprised at some of Svetcov's suggestions, including flourless chocolate cake with raspberries, bourbon truffles (she insists that chocolate has laxative properties) and yogurt smoothies that get a boost of fiber from supplements and fresh fruit. Virtually all her dishes are flavorful and simple--wheat germ, flax meal and whole wheat pastry flour are about as outré as she gets-and the emphasis is on flavor rather than fiber content (to that end, Svetcov rates her recipes on a 10-point scale, ten being a dish best consumed within sprinting distance of a restroom). A collection of emergency heavy hitters includes jump-starters like prunes with warm brandy. Conversely, those who might have overdone it will appreciate Svetcov's recommendations for slowing things down, such as baked potato with olive oil or matzo pancakes." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Now, millions of Americans can beat constipation, without giving up gourmet food.

Millions of Americans have to pass up good food because of their bad problem - constipation. In 2004 alone, there were 41.3 million visits to physicians for digestive system symptoms.

The Constipation-Free Gourmet Cookbook is the kind of cookbook home chefs can count on every day to deliver regular meals with exotic variety and homey comforts. For the family cook, it has the main courses, sides, and deserts that will keep everyone moving: pasta puttanesca on Monday, pizza with shrimp on Tuesday, and pork chops on Thursday. The Constipation-Free Gourmet Cookbook is the go-to cookbook for anyone who wants the pleasure of a great meal without worrying about the side effects.
