Recipes Galore!

Find recipes that are compliant with many therapeutic diets. Note that while some sources focus on specific diets, because of similarities among therapeutic diets, often such recipes can be used for multiple diets. Some sources provide generally healthy diets ideal for those with dietary restrictions but are not guaranteed to be compatible with any specific diet. Be sure to understand the rules of your diet and double check all recipes for compliance.

Because of the similarities between diets, cookbooks targeting one diet often contain recipes that work for others. We recommend visiting your local library if possible before purchase.
