Product Description NATIONAL BESTELLER • 120+ simple, delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to help you manage autoimmune issues all day—plus a​n all-new 10-day, 30-recipe reset to identify your food triggers—from the New York Times bestselling author of Fix It with Food. During the first few months of 2020, Michael Symon religiously posted "Symon Dinners" on Instagram every day to help his fans keep pantry-inspired meals fun and varied. The response was so great and his followership so engaged that creating a cookbook of simple weekday breakfasts, lunches, and dinners became a priority for him. In Fix It with Food: Every Meal Easy, Michael combines simple dishes for busy weekdays and meals that address autoimmune triggers for a collection of 120+ health-supportive recipes. The chapters are divided by what trigger you're avoiding, including No Meat, No Dairy, and No Flour. If you're not sure what your food triggers are, the ten-day reset will help you figure out which foods to avoid. After the reset, Michael offers guidance about how to reintegrate foods into your routine. ​Through fan feedback, Michael discovered that most people using his first book didn't need four servings—most wanted just enough for two meals, so in Every Meal Easy, all of the main recipes yield two meals or enough for one meal plus leftovers. And since sometimes you have a crowd to cook for, Michael offers helpful information regarding how to double recipes when needed. Readers will also find a list of his favorite 30 anti-inflammatory friendly ingredients to keep in stock all the time and a master ingredient substitution list, so if you don't have kale or black beans on hand, you can swap in whatever you have in your fridge or pantry. With Michael's encouraging voice and ​flexible recipes, Fix It with Food: Every Meal Easy is a must-have for anyone who is looking to feel better without compromising eating well.

Introduction As many of you might be aware, I suffer from two autoimmune diseases: discoid lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. I learned about these issues when I was in my twenties, but like most young people, I chose to ignore the symptoms and continued to live my life as if nothing had changed. For the most part, I was able to do so, working through the inevitable inflammation, discomfort, and pain that resulted from my poor decisions. But as I got older, the pain increased; either that or my tolerance for it declined. Regardless, something had to change. That’s when I took a very close look at my diet to see if I couldn’t manage or reduce much of that discomfort simply by avoiding certain foods. On The Chew, I designed a 20-day food plan—what I now call the Reset—to try and zero in on which types of foods caused me inflammation (the source of my pain). The process I devised for myself consisted of a very strict diet that eliminated the most likely sources of discomfort, namely flour, dairy, meat, and sugar. By identifying and avoiding all of these so-called triggers, I found that I was largely able to stop reaching into the medicine cabinet. After sharing on TV what I learned throughout the process, I received a groundswell of positive feedback from viewers. As I was posting these recipes on social media, people were responding enthusiastically about how the Reset was helping them deal with their own triggers. That response is what encouraged me to write Fix It with Food, my first cookbook geared to antiinflammatory foods and recipes. In that b
