Alternative Cooking – Reduce Inflammation of Chronic Disease Through Diet Change

Baker Dan’s book, Beating Arthritis: Alternative Cooking, grapples with a basic question: How do you handle food restrictions?

“Beating Arthritis” shows you the Baker Dan’s method of reducing and preventing inflammation through self-study and medically-supervided diet-change.  “Alternative Cooking” suggests an alternative approach to cooking and an alternative way of using ingredients.

In this book you will find answers for many of your questions. What if you cannot eat certain fruits and vegetables, even when you are a vegetarian or a vegan? What if you need to eliminate wheat flour, added sugar or fats, or certain spices? If you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, or fat-free, can you still make tasty, appealing and nutritious meals? Of course you can.  The recipes in the book are gluten-free, dairy-free, with no added sugar or fat, and include detailed nutrition facts.  This site includes sample recipes from each section of the book, contact information for Baker Dan to sign up for classes and arrange for public speeches, and a place to buy the book as either an ebook or a physical one.

Enjoy the site and if you have any question please email Baker Dan at Baker Dan will do his best to answer your questions and concerns regarding alternative cooking and baking.
