With over 80 recipes that promise to balance hormones, beat brain fog, and transform the body’s response to everything from aging to stress, this cookbook from naturopathic medical doctor Christianson (The Metabolism Reset Diet) will appeal to readers of books such as Burnout by Emily and Amelia Nagoski as well as myriad recent hormone cures from authors such as Jolene Brighten and Sara Gottfried. With two chapters devoted to information about hormones and nutrition, followed by recipes grouped by symptoms and sample meal plans that address common concerns including weight gain, insomnia, hot flashes, and fatigue, the book provides readers with action steps and nutritional tweaks that might alleviate common issues that many people face, especially women over 40.
VERDICT The recipes are plant-forward, and the index includes some references to clinical studies, making it a useful compendium for anyone interested in incorporating more plants into meals. This title is also for readers who are curious about how nutrition might support them as they try to troubleshoot hormonal issues, although many might want to consult with their doctors first.
