I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU, PLEASE TAKE THIS SURVEY.

In the pilot episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, Dr. Steven Gundry sits down with fashion model turned health food author Annabelle Lee who says she’s been able to “manage” her autoimmune disease through diet changes in her new book The Ultimate Grain-Free Cookbook.

In her new book, Annabelle offers tips on how to maintain a real food (gluten-free and paleo) lifestyle with tasty recipes that blend fat-burning methods and nutritious ingredients. And many of the Ultimate Grain-Free recipes are Dr. Gundry-approved, such as Savory Butter Crackers, Gnocchi with Creamy Spinach, Butter Pecan Cookies and her decadent German Chocolate Cake (without zucchini).

 

Through her own lifestyle changes Lee came to better understand nutrition. Shortly after her first pregnancy she started to experience certain discomforting, autoimmune symptoms herself.

 

That’s when she took matters into her own hands.
