Part one gives a brief introduction to the immune system and discusses allergies, autoimmune conditions and components of the immune system.
Part two introduces some immune superfoods, and we're not talking about acai berries or some food only grown in the Amazon here, real food such as beetroot, garlic and asparagus are mentioned in detail with information about their immune properties and a list of recipes in the book using this food.
Part three discusses common ailments of the immune system, everything from the common cold to asthma and migraines. Again, suggested recipes for each ailment are included with reference to the page numbers in the back of the book, plus some additional, practical tips for staying healthy with nutrition and lifestyle.
Part four contains over 180 recipes, putting the information in the first three parts to work, using immune superfoods and delicious ingredients. Everything from breakfast, soups and starters, to sides, salads and sauces is covered in this compact, but thoroughly enjoyable collection of healthy, nutrition packed recipes. The final few pages contain herbal tea recipes, diet plans and glossary of terms and a 'top ten foods' list for vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
