Raw, cooked, and gluten-free meals from the founder of the national award-winning healthy-snack company Two Moms in the Raw
Within just a few days, Shari Leidich, a mother of three,and#160;went from working out daily and hiking in the nearby Rocky Mountains to beingand#160;barely ableand#160;to hold a pen. The diagnosis: MS. Gradually, thanks to a diet rich in raw foods,and#160;she returned to her former energetic self. For the long term, though, she knew sheand#160;had to create meals that she would find satisfyingand#160;and that her husband and threeand#160;children would love as well. And they had to be quick and easy.
Many of the 130-plus dishes, like Brunchy Poached Eggs on Spinach with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, or Plum and Tatsoi Salad, are riots of color. Most can be on the table before the kids can even complain theyand#39;re hungry. Indulgent snacks like Creamy Olive and Artichoke Dipand#160;and Butternut-Lemongrass Soupand#160;satisfy cravings, and chicken and fishandmdash;Single-Skillet Chicken Puttanesca, Chard-Wrapped Mahi-Mahiandmdash;come bolsteredand#160;with plenty of raw produce and grains. Desserts ditch processed sugar in favor of natural sweeteners and power nutrients.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy-Award winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the foods she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.
Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all!
An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor's guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great. Now, in IT'S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Hummus Tartine with Scallion-Mint Pesto, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana "Ice Cream," and more!
