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.

Susan GreeleyBaker Dan has recently teamed up with the experienced author (“Cooking With Trader Joe’s Cookbook Lighten Up!” ) and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Susan Greeley ( and together they have set on a mission of changing the way that the Food Service Industry (hotels, resorts, retreats, cruise ships, airlines, and country clubs) accommodates people like me who have special dietary needs.  It has been Baker Dan’s personal experience, that although he can afford any hotel, he does not do it with his family of five since there is nothing on the menu that he can eat.  The point that Baker Dan is making is simple:  There are millions of people like him with special dietary needs, who suffer from various forms of Arthritis, Celiac, Crohn’s Disease, Diabetes, or Food Allergies, and who either avoid hotels altogether, or simply eat (and spend) very little when visiting.

Baker Dan and Susan Greeley want to change this state of affairs. Bringing in their experience and expertise they want to teach the executives of hospitality and food service industries how to accommodate people with special dietary needs and increase their bottom line.  If you are interested, please email Baker Dan at">
