Editorial Reviews


"A lightning bolt of lucidity in a crowded and jargon-laden field of often impractical and unsustainable dietary approaches."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Hunt's sincerity and belief in the benefits of e-gut-ilibrium is 150 percent contagious."

"A worthy follow-up to Healthyish that can more than stand on its own." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Much more than a cookbook, Help Yourself is the inspiring tale of one woman's journey back to health, fashioned into a Bible for a new way of eating. Lindsay's clear-headed, research-based approach, combined with her passion and talent for creating cookable recipes, add up to a book my gut tells me will make a delicious difference in many lives."
--ADEENA SUSSMAN, author of Sababa: Fresh, Sunny Flavors from My Israeli Kitchen

"Lindsay has achieved the impossible with Help Yourself: a book about health that trades in pleasure, and manages to cast gut microbes as guests at a fantastic party that your body gets to host. Through the lens of her own experience, and with the scientific rigor often missing from the fact-averse #wellness canon, Lindsay imagines a world in which food can offer both joy and salvation in the same bite."
--JORDANA ROTHMAN, food writer and co-author of Tacos: Recipes and Provocations 

"Most cookbooks just focus on how to get food from supermarket to mouth. In Help Yourself, Lindsay goes a lot further, examining how our bodies actually process (or don't) what we eat. Lindsay presents a compeling case for how we can all be gentler on our bodies and our guts, without sacrificing big flavors."
--CHRIS MOROCCO, deputy food editor, Bon Appetit 

"As someone who's suffered my fair share of food-related health issues and the joyless diet plans prescribed to treat them, Lindsay's "taste-first" approach to healthier eating is a revelation. Her recipes rise above soulless science to give you solutions you'll actually enact with recipes you'll crave. This book is an indispensable guide to a better way of treating my body through food, and I'll be cooking from it every week."
--BEN MIMS, cooking columnist for the Los Angeles Times

"Help Yourself isn't just a provision for hearty eating, it provides us with peace of mind, exploring the links between our personal microbiota and a symbiotic approach towards better gut health. What's doubly impressive is that these restorative recipes are delicious too; they home in on Lindsay's talents as a cook without getting outdone by the edifying science preceding them."
--MICHAEL HARLAN TURKELL, award-winning photographer, author, and podcast host

"Lindsay Maitland Hunt has done it again--nailing the delicate intersection between healthful and delicious. She has meticulously and thoughtfully laid out a plan for gut health-forward eating so we don't have to, all while keeping our taste buds downright delighted! I'm already craving another bowl of saucy coconut collards, chocolate-chunk-peanut-butter 'nice' cream, and those pistachio butter thumbprints..."
--SARAH COPELAND, award-winning author of Feast and Every Day Is Saturday

"This book is an act of compassion and of service. Lindsay equips us with the (delicious) tools to treat our bodies right and, by candidly and sometimes hilariously detailing her own health journey, she makes those of us who have suffered through similar discomforts feel less alone. (I also know what microbiota accessible carbohydrates are, so there's that, too.)"
--JULIA BAINBRIDGE, writer and host of The Lonely Hour podcast

"Lindsay's book is on the cutting edge of gut health science. She nimbly breaks it down (without oversimplifying), providing well-researched, delicious, veg-packed bites along the way. It's food that makes you feel good--aka, what you want to eat every day."
--EMILY FIFFER, co-founder, Botanica Restaurant

"Help Yourself is a thoughtful, thorough, and joyful guide to cooking that's good and good for you. It's deeply honset, painstakingly researched, and the recipes are delicious! You'll learn so much cooking through this book."
--DAWN PERRY, food writer

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, informative, and delicious!!!
By Elle PM on August 15, 2020
Wow! Just spent the last two days reading through this cookbook, which is both beautiful and informative! Such a great and will definitely make a good gift (actually bought today for a friend who has some dietary restrictions for her birthday!). This is a picture of one of Lindsay’s gut-friendly cocktails... they are delicious! We are trying the shrimp tacos with kimchi tonight and will post. I didn’t think I could love a cookbook more than I already loved Healthyish, but here we are!!
