My Savvy Review of Holly Clegg’s Eating Well To Fight Arthritis Cookbook

I have been on a health and wellness journey for a few years now and I am always on the hunt for new tasty recipes that are better for you and that still taste really good. That can actually be a real challenge as usually good for you means that the meal is tasteless or does not taste good at all. This is not the case with the delicious recipes in Holly Clegg’s trim&TERRIFIC Eating Well To Fight Arthritis Cookbook. This wonderful cookbook is loaded with 200 delicious and ‘easy to make’ recipes that help to reduce inflammation and ease symptoms. Now… I have recently developed issues with one of my knees and I am sure that it is a sign of the onset of arthritis in my knee. In all honesty my grandmother suffered from arthritis in her hands so it is something that I can learn to deal with, as she did but I will also work to manage my knee through good diet, all natural supplements and exercise. Food is an amazing thing and if you eat the right foods… it can help with so many ailments that people suffer with today which is why I am loving this cookbook and am so excited to share it with everyone that I know. I just made an insanely delicious recipe the other night….. Holly Clegg’s Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole and I am sharing the yummy recipe below. Let me tell you that this recipe is delicious and it is perfect for the entire family as my kids loved it as much as my husband and I did. I mean how can you go wrong with chicken, broccoli and rice in a creamy cheese sauce that is the ultimate in comfort food ~ its delish!

Before I share the recipe lets talk about this fabulous cookbook that everyone can benefit from. Holly Clegg’s Eating Well To Fight Arthritis is hands down the best resource for anyone looking to create easy, delicious and quick recipes that will help to reduce inflammation and also to help clean up their diet which is something that I love and appreciate. The ingredients that Holly uses in her recipes, brings the recipes to life but rest assured that these recipes are easy enough to make on a busy weeknight which is huge as we are all tired after a long day of work and it is easy to want to order takeout or just run through the fast food drive through which defeats the purpose off trying to eat healthy and clean.


The way it works is that Holly has created recipes so that they are full of antioxidants that can help to reduce inflammation which can be the trigger for much of the arthritis pain that anyone experiences. This is not only beneficial for someone suffering from arthritis but also anyone that suffers from chronic pain as the anti-inflammatory benefits of these meals will help with their pain too. I also love that there are tons of tips that can help you to prepare the meals more efficiently and regardless of your level of cooking skills….. this book is packed with easy to prepare recipes that anyone can cook and that will for sure become family favorites to be enjoyed again and again.

Holly created this delicious cookbook because she believes that what you eat can make all the difference and that a arthritic diet or anti-inflammatory diet can help ease the symptoms of arthritis and inflammation. Holly was surprised at how many people of all ages are affected by rheumatoid arthritis as well as the many different types of arthritis that exist. In this fabulous cookbook, Holly wanted to appeal to anyone that experiences arthritic symptoms and inflammation and to provide practical, affordable, simply healthy recipes that will help you with an anti-inflammatory diet that will help to fight arthritis, help with weight loss, and an overall better quality of life! She has also included gluten-free, diabetic recipes was all as all of the nutritional value information which I love. Simply put…. Holly’s trim&TERRIFIC Eating Well To Fight Arthritis Cookbook is a healthy cookbook that is loaded with easy, everyday recipes that will become staples in your kitchen. Now let’s take a look at my favorite recipe(so far) from the cookbook….
