Having purchased too many cookbooks that look appealing online, but prove to be most definitely otherwise. I previewed this book from my library.
In the middle of a severe IBS attack that was keeping me nearly housebound, besides feeling bad physically, I was becoming increasingly depressed as the attack refused to subside. This cookbook is a big moral booster from start to finish. The pictures are great, the recipes fantastic, but the coloring coding for symptoms is the best touch. I shop at an organic co-op and have no problems finding ingredients.

Format: Paperback
What I like about this book is the color-coding. It doesn't just tell you what to eat and not eat, but what foods are helpful for certain symptoms. So you can skim the book for the color that matches your symptoms... or if you are having a really sensitive day, you just look for recipes with a purple dot. There are also suggestions next to the dots on how to modify the recipe for the symptoms (ex. skip the peppers for some types of symptoms).

Some of the ingrediants are rather specific. If you are a regular Whole Foods shopper or someone who is careful about nutrition, you may be familiar with many of the ingrediants. But if you do a lot of conventional cooking, it may feel a bit overwhelming to see some ingrediants that aren't always available at a conventional supermarket. If you are interested in eating less processed foods, it might be worth exploring a few new things and seeing what you like & works for your stomach.

On the whole, the recipes here are pretty simple (shorter lists of ingrediants) which helps with modification/substitution. My only criticism is that while the book acknowledges food sensitivities, there are quite a few recipes with gluten grains, nightshades, etc... which is fine... but given the goal of the book, it would be nice to see some footnotes on how to replace common allergens when they appear in a recipe (ex. if you can't eat oat flour, what are some options to replace it with that would still taste good?).

Overall, it's nice to see a resource that acknowledges the variety of symptoms of IBS and uses knows "helpers" (such as ginger or peppermint) in the recipes to help calm things down... and encourages healthy foods, rather than recommending a diet full of white foods (ex. rice, bread and pasta) as the staple of an IBS diet.

I would've given this book 5 stars, but felt it wouldn't be completely accurate since I do not suffer from IBS. Nevertheless, I am still a huge fan of a number of these recipes. Ashley uses real ingredients (instead of the processed foods that are on most supermarket shelves) to create real food that benefits both your intestinal system and your taste buds.

To the reviewer who mentioned not being familiar with most of the ingredients (or being able to find them), I would recommend checking out your local Whole Foods or Wild Oats store. If neither one of those has (yet) invaded your hometown, there are plenty of places online that sell these ingredients. It's one of those situations in which a little extra effort (to source these ingredients) pays off big in the long run.

Also, if you do not suffer from IBS, don't let the title scare you away; these recipes are great for everyone - and the plus is that they'll be easier on any system (even if yours is made of steel)!

This author got big props in another sketchy book, Hasselbeck's The G-Free Diet. But I don't have much to recommend it. I'm a fairly progressive, creative cook in the organic, locally sourced gluten-free, dairy-free world, so these recipes aren't anything to write home about. Too much packaged stuff for me. Though some with far less picky palates may find it helpful.
Update: I much (much, much) prefer Segersten and Malterre's Nourishing Meals to anything else out there. Recipes that are tried and true and delicious, to boot. nourishingmeals.com is their online presence, and it's a way to try their recipes before buying the book. Good stuff.

This book is so well organized for everyone who suffers with an unpredictable colon! I picked it up at the library as a fluke and brought it home. And then I had to buy it because I used so many recipes from it! The first recipe was for Naturally Decaf Tea. It worked beautifully! The Coco Nana Cookies--BETTER than ANY health bar! I freeze them and they are just delicious!

Thanks for making my whole body happy! I munch the granola recipe with cold almond milk and feel like a brand new human being!

This recipe book looks like it would make your struggles with eating and IBS easier by providing you delicious recipes that won't aggrivate your symptoms. So I bought it. Once it arrived I quickly realized that a lot of the ingredients were things I had never heard of and had no idea where to find. So basically I would not recommend this book unless you are a chef/cook or know one, because otherwise you will end up using it to keep your coffee table level like I do.

Recipes were not useful. Too many ingredients I would have to purchase. Big disappointment. Sorry I purchased it. On a happy note there are many other useful books for IBS cooks
