“In my former role as Executive Editor at Cooking Light magazine, I had the pleasure of working with Carolyn numerous times. Her work was always pristine—thoroughly researched and insightful, breaking down complicated nutrition concepts into easy-to-understand language for our readers. Meals That Heal is, not surprisingly, no different. It clearly defines chronic inflammation, details why it’s harmful and potentially detrimental to health, explains the role food plays, and empowers people to take control of their own health through better eating habits. Most importantly, as a busy mom herself, she has created easy, delicious recipes that real people can quickly make at home to improve their health. Because it’s one thing to tell people about chronic inflammation; it’s another thing to help them reverse or prevent it through recipes they’ll actually make.” —Ann Taylor Pittman, food writer and recipe developer
