‘There’s nothing I didn’t like about the design or content of the book.
Sure we are used to cookery books having lavish graphics and pictorial content – The Functional Nutrition Cookbook doesn’t provide this, it is aimed at those who value substance over design. Our copy is up alongside Jamie, Lorraine, Anjum and Rick’s books, but it’ll be used to plan our family’s meals just as often as the classic cook books.’
— Donald Scott
‘I am personally very delighted to find a book with so many useful and relevant recipes under one cover, I cannot be alone in spending far too much time hunting down suitable meal options for complex requirements…
It will certainly get a lot of use in my practice and can highly recommend it for any practitioner’s bookshelf.’

‘In the transition from recommendation to action, people need a ‘road map’ to help them make relevant and meaningful changes.
The authors of this book have pulled together fantastic systems-orientated therapeutic meal options that will complement or independently propel individuals towards their goal of nutrition-orientated optimal health.
Practitioners of functional medicine and others will cherish this book, as it solves the question:
so what CAN I eat, and how do I make it tasty, healthy and family friendly?’
— Michael Ash BSc, DO, ND, F.DipION, osteopath, naturopath, nutritional therapist and managing director of Integrated Health Consultancy Ltd.
‘Integrating nutrition science with Functional Medicine through an evidence-based approach, this highly practical book is an excellent resource for any nutrition-oriented healthcare practitioner helping individuals make dietary changes to support their health.
Combining simple advice with delicious, nutritious recipes suitable for all, it’s certainly a book to reach for in the kitchen on a daily basis.’
— Jane Nodder, senior lecturer, clinic tutor and nutritional therapist
‘All the foods we consume affect our function in a positive or negative way.
This health promoting recipe book will be an invaluable tool for health practitioners and their patients to identify foods that have a positive function.
It is full of delicious recipes which specifically target the nutritional imbalances associated with key body systems that are the underlying cause of many health conditions. This functional approach to eating and lifestyle deals with the root cause of disease, not just the symptoms.’
— Ken Eddie, managing director of Nutri., leaders in the field of Functional Medicine education.
‘This is a cookbook that has just been waiting to happen.
A great practitioner companion to Biochemical Imbalances in Disease.
The well-referenced text helps practitioners to readily justify nutrition recommendations for their clients in an evidence-informed manner, and guide them towards reading specific chapters and key recipes to support their personalised plan. The brilliance of a functional nutrition cookbook is that as new data emerges it is relatively straightforward to update text and revise recipes in a highly relevant and practical way. Personalised healthcare is here to stay and this cookbook will likely be the first of many that truly attempts to address the importance of diets for the individual rather than the population.’
