Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Oatmeal with coconut cream, strawberries, and toasted almonds

    • southerncooker on June 13, 2022

      This was pretty good but loaded with more calories that makes me not want to eat again. There was a little too much coconut oil to toast the Steel-Cut Oats. Since you add water to the coconut cream not sure why coconut milk wouldn't work. It tasted like it needed a little sweetness, but since there was so many calories already from coconut cream and oil I didn't add any. I only used half the amount of almonds called for and that was plenty.

  • Veggie stir-fry over brown rice

    • southerncooker on January 20, 2022

      I love stir fries and this was delicious. I used Symon's suggestion in the front of the book, to subsitute veggies for one's you have you didn't use all of in other recipes ,or have on hand. I used parsnips, zucchini, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, and red and orange sweet peppers. I couldn't find tamari so I used a no soy no wheat soy sauce alternative.

  • Baked stuffed portobellos

    • southerncooker on January 16, 2022

      Loved this one. It used some of the reserved Wild Mushroom Risotto I had a few days ago, as well as some of the dairy free Parmesan. A few roasted pine nuts gave it a little crunch. I'd make this again.

  • Cream of wild mushroom and barley soup

    • southerncooker on January 30, 2022

      Not sure why it's called wild mushroom, because it calls for cremini. I was out of purple onion so I used a sweet onion. There is a recipe to make bone broth in book but I used boxed. I didn't have fresh dill so stirred in a tiny bit of dried into my bowl. Hubby said it was good, but needed something, because it tasted a little bland. I liked it, but like him, I thought it needed a little something.

  • Sweet potato pancakes with wilted greens

    • southerncooker on January 16, 2022

      It was a little had to shape into a patty. I plopped them on a plate and formed into patty. Then I used a spatula to lift them into pan to fry. Delicious. Collards from my farm share.

  • Crispy stir-fried brown rice with wild mushrooms

    • southerncooker on January 21, 2022

      This was supposed to be a mix of mushrooms. Cremini was one of the suggested and that's all I had so that's what I used. It was delicious.

  • Baked eggs in avocado with peppers

    • southerncooker on January 13, 2022

      Quick, Easy and delicious breakfast.

  • Warm spinach and mushroom salad with pine nuts

    • southerncooker on January 20, 2022

      This was really good, but not very filling.

  • Wild mushroom risotto

    • southerncooker on January 12, 2022

      I used blue oyster mushrooms from my Tumbling Shoals Farm Share and two small cremini to make 3 cups sliced. I used boxed mushroom broth. I loved this. It made 2 servings, plus an extra cup to use in another recipe later this week. I gave the second serving to my daughter when they came by this afternoon. The Faux Parmesan from this book was good in this.

  • Chickpea, kale, and tomato stew

    • southerncooker on January 29, 2022

      Made a half recipe for daughter and I. I used Red Thai Curry paste, Better Than Bullion vegetable broth, and fire roasted tomatoes. Kale was from my farm share. We were hungry and I forgot to add the lemon juice. It was still delicious.

  • Mom's lasagna with potato noodles and meat sauce

    • southerncooker on January 31, 2022

      The potatoes are sliced paper thin. I had a mandoline, but we all got cut when we tried to use it, so I put it up somewhere and now can't find it. It was a pain in the butt doing it with a vegetable peeler. Even after cooking 2 hrs and 15 min some of the potatoes were still not soft. All of us who ate it agreed while it was good we definitely like our lasagna better with noodles. Glad we tried it but wouldn't make again.

  • Kale salad with radishes, zucchini, and tomatoes

    • southerncooker on January 16, 2022

      This was good. I used watermelon radishes and kale from my farm share.

  • Dairy-free Parmesan

    • southerncooker on January 12, 2022

      Easy to make and good dairy free Parmesan subsitute.

  • Curried lentils with lamb and sweet potatoes

    • mgmcewen on November 13, 2020

      Definitely a nope for us. Gluey, bland, and the lamb ended up really dry and flavorless.

  • Quinoa and egg salad with chickpeas and asparagus

    • maryhappyface on January 13, 2022

      I cooked the asparagus and did two eggs instead of one - so good and satisfying!

Publishers Text

The first-ever health-focused cookbook from everyone's favorite celebrity chef, Michael Symon. Fix It with Food shares how Symon learned which foods caused his inflammation and pain (he calls these his food triggers) and helps readers discover their own food triggers. By beginning with a "reset," readers will identify which foods to avoid, and then, with 125 creative and health-supportive recipes, they'll learn that just like Michael Symon, you don't need to sacrifice delicious food to eat healthfully and be pain-free.

When Michael Symon found out he had rheumatoid arthritis and external lupus, he suspected that what he ate--or didn't eat--could make a profound difference in how he felt. So he committed to a food reset on The Chew--no red meat, white flour, sugar, dairy, or alcohol. He recorded his results using social media to share his experience with his hundreds of thousands of fans--and what happened next was incredible--after a few days, he felt amazing. Michael discovered that dairy, sugar, and processed flours are his triggers, and that by avoiding them, his inflammation essentially vanished. Viewers connected with his journey and asked him to share his recipes. From Ginger and Chile-Roast Chicken to a dairy-free Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti Squash with Arugula Pesto to an Apple and Cherry Oat Crisp, Michael came up with more than 125 incredible recipes to satisfy his cravings without aggravating his body. The recipes in Fix It with Food provide guidance to both identifying food triggers and creating a meal plan that works around whatever ingredient causes your discomfort.
