- Trish Dekker, “Nutrition & Recovery – a Professional Resource for Healthy Eating during Recovery from Substance Abuse”, 2000, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Canada). 14 educational modules with “camera-ready” handouts. Available from: http://www.camhx.ca/Publications/CAMH_Publications/nutrition_recovery.html
- Renée Hoffinger, “The Recovery Diet”, 2012, Adams Media, Avon, MA. This book offers sound advice on diet supportive of recovery from alcoholism (which holds true for other addictive substances, as well). It includes a nice section on putting it all together in the kitchen, plus 12 weeks of menus with 2 new recipes for each day.
- Liz Scott, “The Sober Kitchen – Recipes and Advice for a Lifetime of Sobriety”, 2003, Harvard Common Press, Boston, MA. Written by a chef in recovery, the recipes and advice are divided into 3 stages of recovery. The 300-plus recipes range from fairly easy to more advanced but it’s as though the author is holding your hand and cheering you on right there in the kitchen. Unique items of interest include the section on “sober makeovers” (i.e., dishes traditionally made with alcohol, such as chicken marsala) and the well-researched response to those who would claim “But the alcohol all burns off.” (No, it doesn’t…).
