“In Food to Eat, Lieberman and Sangster strike a perfect balance between nutritional knowledge and personal experience in developing this unique recipe book for people recovering from eating disorders.”
– Cynthia Bulik, PhD, FAED, Director of the University of North Carolina Eating Disorders Program.

More than a cook book for eating disorder recovery.

It’s like making a couple of new friends!

In Food to Eat, you’ll find two supports, Cate & Lori, guiding you as you begin to change your relationship with food. They anticipate your fears and thoughts, say them out loud in a lighthearted way and help you get past them. They dialogue about the recipes and nutrition content to set the record straight—about fats, protein, carbs and a range of other nutrients—helping you expand your food selection and normalize your eating.  You’ll realize quickly that they get it—they really do. Cate will challenge, and Lori responds—much like the two voices that play out in your own head. And of course there are the wonderful, healthy and easy-to-justify recipes—25 of them—from ‘breakfast any time’, to main dishes and sides, to ‘endings any time’. They’ll take you from just thinking about eating to shopping and stocking your pantry, to cooking and managing your portions.
