Description

Improve your overall health by healing your digestive system with a sensible approach to food and 100 satisfying recipes.

Created for the Grayshott Spa, renowned for its holistic approach to well-being, the Grayshott Plan focuses on digestive health as a route to true health. In Good Gut, Great Health, you will learn to use the Grayshott Plan to boost your energy and rebalance weight safely through a nutrient-rich diet that will give you everything you need to face the demands of modern life.

The Plan dispels the misguided notion of "detoxifying" through spartan, punitive regimes and instead focuses on regaining good health by eating the right foods to aid the body's natural detoxification. The Plan recommends quality grass-fed red meats, fish, eggs, fermented foods, butter, avocado, and organic vegetables. This is not a plan of privation but a sensible, satisfying, science-based program that brings you back to feeling great.

The first section introduces the Plan and provides information and meal plans for a short-term course to rest and repair your digestive tract. The Post-Plan information shows you more foods to introduce to your diet and keep your gut healthy.

The recipe section contains various delicious meals split into breakfasts, soups, main meals, vegetable sides, salads, and special occasions and includes satisfying and nourishing meals like:

  • Baked eggs with tomatoes, peppers, and chorizo
  • Porchetta with plum and fig chutney
  • Grilled sole fillets marinated in ginger and tangerine
  • Crayfish cakes with coconut and mango, and many more
With a hundred different options and customizable diet schedule templates to ensure your success on the Plan, Good Gut, Great Health is the perfect book to start you on your journey to a more natural, healthy diet. Combining science and efficacy to fit the hectic schedule of modern life, the Grayshott Plan is almost too good to be true!
