"Food for Recovery" was the first book to address the nutritional aspect of recovery and is designed to work in tandem with a 12-step program or any other recovery program to achieve true and lasting results.

Although this book originally was geared to those who are in recovery, it's basic principles are applicable to all who care about their health and well being.

"Food For Recovery" is not a fad diet, it's part cookbook, part "playbook" for a healthy lifestyle, and has been successfully used by thousands of individuals to improve their physical, mental, and spiritual health.

"Food for Recovery" explains the basics of nutrition-how your body uses food to live-and then illustrates what happened to your body as a result of your addiction. Next, the book reveals how to repair the damage done and how to eat for the rest of your life to ensure that you stay healthy-and feel your best. A number of nutritional issues are particularly important for the recovering person-like food allergies and sensitivities to dairy and highly refined foods-and these are covered in detail.

The second half of the book teaches the basics of whole foods cooking. You will learn where to find whole foods, how to store them, and how to cook them to preserve their goodness. The book includes 127 whole foods recipes designed for busy people with no prior cooking experience.

Of the vast array of recovery books out there, here is one that actually broke new ground. Clear and comprehensive, this book provides real hope for people in recovery; as well as anyone who had believed it was their fate never to feel completely whole.

Risks and challenges

We are looking for funds to purchase a computer, software, and other items needed to complete the project.

As I have written four books in the past for the Addiction End Program including the third edition of "Food For Recovery", I am sure that I can complete this project as I have obtained additional training in self publishing, computers, and website design.

While I have the passion, drive, and skills needed to complete the project, funding for the items needed to get the job done is an obstacle to completing this project.
