Recipes for Repair cover artLaura Piazza returns to Gibson's Bookstore to present her newly updated recipe book, Recipes for Repair: A 10-week Program to Combat Chronic Inflammation and Identify Food Sensitivities, a four-phase plan with 182 recipes created specifically for individuals fighting chronic inflammatory conditions and food sensitivities.

“Never give up your battle.” This is the final line of the dedication from Gail and Laura Piazza’s newly updated recipe book, Recipes for Repair, a 10-week, four-phase plan with 182 recipes created specifically for individuals fighting chronic inflammatory conditions and food sensitivities.

It’s a mantra that rings true for NH resident Laura Piazza, as she grappled with misdiagnoses and chronic illness. In 2009, after finally being diagnosed properly with Lyme disease, Piazza discovered The Lyme Disease Solution, by Kenneth Singleton, MD, MPH. His views on nutrition and healing piqued her curiosity, but didn’t excite her taste buds. So she called someone with four decades of experience developing recipes for high-profile clients–her mom, Gail Piazza. Wanting nothing more than to help her daughter feel better, it was natural for Gail to use her culinary talents to develop delicious recipes that adhered to the diet. As a direct result of her dietary changes, Laura’s persistent stomach pains, indigestion, heartburn, acne and throat congestion eventually resolved. This success inspired her. She wanted others to benefit from the diet and her mother’s recipes the way she did. With Laura’s credentials as a professional photographer and graphic designer, and Gail’s food expertise, they would publish a cookbook specific to Dr. Singleton’s diet.

“Beyond the positive changes in my health, I feel relieved that the food I’m eating is nourishing my body rather than causing it distress. And I’m not alone, we continually hear from readers about the profound changes they find when they dedicate themselves to this new way of eating,” said Laura. “And with my mother’s delicious recipes, like her Sloppy Joes, Chicken Fajitas, Meatloaf, Coconut Chicken Tenders, Homemade Pasta, and Chocolate Banana Ice Cream, these are meals you can make for the whole family!"

She will talk about which foods to avoid or enjoy when suffering chronic inflammation and discuss how nutritional changes can help minimize or eliminate some symptoms of inflammatory or autoimmune conditions. She will wrap up by touching upon the importance of prevention and early treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses. She will also be providing delicious recipe samples from the book so participants can see for themselves how tasty the recipes are and will be signing copies of her book.
