Why Make a Cookbook?
At Selfhacked, our purpose is to develop a body of knowledge and the necessary tools (SelfDecode) to help people heal from chronic illness and become optimal.
The Lectin Avoidance Diet post currently gets over 15,000 visitors a month. I named the Lectin Avoidance Diet as such because I think that lectins are the single major trigger of autoimmune disease. However, they are not the only trigger.
But the question I keep getting in my consults and on the blog is “what do I eat? Do you have any recipes or meal plans?”
Although no one size fits all, if you look at all of the substances that trigger the immune system and cause chronic inflammation and autoimmunity, a consensus starts to emerge of foods that a majority of people can and can’t eat.
What Are The 8 Pillars of Health?
Diet is one of my 8 pillars to becoming optimally healthy.
The Big 8 Factors that cause disease and suboptimal performance:
- Lack of Sun and Light
- Disturbed Circadian Rhythms
- Excess stress and unhappiness
- Lack of natural stressors
Substances in Foods That Can Cause Immune Reactions
I’ve identified some common substances found in plant-based foods that can be problematic when people have autoimmune issues. They are:
- Trypsin Inhibitors
- Others: Non-protein amino acids, Glycosides, Alkaloids, Triterpenes, Lignins
What’s Different About This Cookbook
Most of the other cookbooks are inadequate because they put in too many ingredients that aren’t allowed for people suffering from autoimmune or chronic inflammatory issues. This cookbook isn’t perfect, but it should give helpful recipes to everyone, no matter what your exact food requirements are.
The ingredients used are relatively low lectin, low tannin, low histamine, low oxalate, low mycotoxin, gluten free, dairy free, low carb and low sugar.
Paleo and Autoimmune Friendly
Everything in this cookbook is “paleo” and autoimmune friendly. Many of the recipes are low carb.
At the end, I give my recipe for making cookies if you’re sensitive to EVERYTHING, so don’t forget to check that out.
Who is This Cookbook For?
This cookbook is for moms, students, self-hackers or anyone who wants some good tasting food.
For a while, I was mixing powders that didn’t taste very good, but I just gulped it down. I realized that I can eat the same ingredients in a concoction that actually tastes really good and is super healthy for me.
Through this, I’ve been able to save a lot of time for food preparation by making my hi-maize cookies.
This cookbook keeps in mind all of the concepts that I speak about throughout the blog.
How to Manage Inflammatory Health Conditions Through a Diet
The lectin avoidance diet and the cookbook are not to be taken as gospel. Rather, it is a starting point for self-experimentation, to test out what works or doesn’t work for you. In the updated version of the lectin avoidance diet cookbook, we include a protocol to figure this out.
Resources in the updated cookbook include
- The Lectin Avoidance Diet Food List (Click on the link for free download)
- How to do an elimination diet to figure out the best diet for you
- Strategies to successfully follow the lectin avoidance diet
- Strategies to afford high-quality meat and produce
Autoimmune Friendly Scores
Since everyone is different in the degree to which they have food sensitivities, I give a score by each recipe to let you know how friendly it is to people with chronic inflammation from food or autoimmune issues.
The scores are subjective, but I still think they are useful.
The scores range from 5-10. There is no recipe that is under a 5 here because making a score lower than 5 would suggest that it’s not friendly to people with autoimmune issues.
Every recipe here is already friendly to the majority of people with autoimmune issues. But I realize that for some clients, myself and people with enhanced food sensitivities, they may only want to eat the foods which don’t provoke immune reactions at all.
For most people, an immune reaction from food is healthy because their immune system is weaker. But for people with autoimmune issues, the immune system is overactive.
If you’re already feeling your options are limited, then you can discard these scores and the notes attached. I just feel that for the people who still have some issues, they should know which foods to experiment cutting out.
