A collection of delicious recipes developed to support the diet that can reverse rheumatoid arthritis – plant-based, low fat and with no added fats for cooking – illustrated with beautiful photographs from the author’s collection. This is a diet that can seem drab and restrictive at the outset but Iida has made it tempting and inspiring.

Authors Biography

Iidamaria is an online proponent of plant-based whole-food eating. She developed the symptoms of inflammatory arthritis – so badly she could hardly walk down stairs – and resolved to overcome it by eating differently. Her research led her to the Paddison Program which restored her health and which her recipes support.
