Cookbook for Salicylate Intolerance – An NZ first

Cookbook for Salicylate Intolerance – A New Zealand first

Devastated that a food intolerance would put an end to the enjoyment of yummy food, Linda Donald created Clever Cooking for Salicylate Intolerance, adapting her favourite recipes using free, low or moderate salicylate ingredients.

Clever Cooking for Salicylate Intolerance features the little cartoon figure Sally who shows how the right options will take you from feeling sick and miserable to the joy of feeling a zest for life again.

While the emphasis today is on healthy eating with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, sadly in some instances this can ruin your life. Linda, who had been feeling unwell for months, was pleased to finally find out what was making her ill, but not to learn the cause was an intolerance to salicylate, a natural chemical found in many of the foods we eat and products we use.
Salicylates prevent rotting and protect against harmful bacteria and fungi. Broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, strawberries, lemons, dates, coconut, and raisins are culprits along with honey, sesame, almonds, olive oil, wine, spices and herbs like mint and rosemary to name just a few.

The Auckland Allergy Clinic describes salicylate sensitivity as “the body’s inability to handle more than a certain amount of salicylates at any one time. A salicylate sensitive person may have difficulty tolerating certain fruits, vegetables or any products that contain aspirin”. (Aspirin is a derivative of salicylic acid, also used in many pain-relieving medications).

Linked to asthma, ADHD, Sjogrens Syndrome, sinusitis, rhinitis, Urticaria (hives), anaphylaxis and in the treatment of fibromyalga, salicylate intolerance affects thousands of people worldwide and is the subject of many health websites, forums and support groups.

Clever Cooking for Salicylate Intolerance, offers inspiration for salicylate intolerant sufferers with over a hundred delicious, nutritional, easy to prepare recipes for snacks, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cookbook includes a helpful list of substitutes and tips along with both metric and imperial measurements. Books can be ordered on line from www.salicylate.org or www.imagesandwords.co.nz

Looks like you need to get the blurb yourself. Probably best to do that irrespective, actually.If David Cameron was the closest thing John Key had to a political mentor, their successors also share a whole lot in common.

Theresa May and Bill English were both propelled into the top jobs as the result of unexpected resignations, and without much in the way of credible competition from their colleagues. Neither have yet been given a mandate to govern by the electorate although – in both countries – the Labour opposition is in less than robust shape. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Why Tax Cuts In 2017 Would Be A (Proven) Bad Idea

Ever since the world fell prey to the mullahs of the free market in the 1980s, no amount of real world evidence has managed dispel one key tenet of their economic faith.
