The Clean Cuisine Cookbook does away with “dieting” and presents a nutritional template that has been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, resulting in peak health for the mind and body. Ivy and Andy’s template strikes the perfect balance of plant-based foods working in conjunction with healthy amounts of animal protein. This perfect harmony optimizes nutritional absorption, generating maximum anti-inflammatory benefits, weight loss, increased energy levels, and an overall sense of total health and well-being.
Ivy’s journey to finding and perfecting clean eating started with her own personal battle against an incurable autoimmune disease. She wanted to live her life to the fullest and avoid an oversaturation of potentially dangerous medications—and then she turned to food as an alternative. Ivy mastered the art of cooking with all-natural whole-food ingredients, choosing only the most nutritionally dense foods that nature offers. Under the supervision of her husband, Andy, a physician and renowned surgeon, she found a path to wellness through clean eating and has remained active, healthy, and free of her crippling symptoms for more than 22 years.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of twenty-two, Ivy Larson was inspired to radically overhaul her diet and lifestyle. With the help of her husband, Andy, a physician, Ivy developed an anti-inflammatory nutrition program that has kept the symptoms of her disease in remission for over twenty years.
A foodie interested in clean eating long before it was popular, Ivy has worked for two decades to develop and perfect mouthwatering recipes that appeal to the whole family. She is the founder of cleancuisine.com and the author of four top-selling nutrition books. Ivy’s Clean Cuisine has helped tens of thousands of people with all kinds of inflammatory medical conditions improve their health and regain their quality of life.
Ivy’s story and her expertise in nutrition and clean cooking have made her a popular figure among national media outlets. She has appeared on Good Morning America, Fox News, CNN, Martha Stewart Radio, and The Montel Show and has hosted nutrition, cooking, and fitness segments on Lifetime Television. Her recipes and healthy lifestyle advice have been featured in Time Magazine, US News and World Report, Fitness Magazine, Life & Style, Get Active, Oxygen, Woman’s Day, Woman’s World, First for Women, and many others.
