Diet Intervention and Autism

A lot of parents find the GF/CF diet helps in the early stages of recovery, as it reduces behaviors. Long term we find that after you heal the gut it is no longer necessary.

Tropical Fruits and Other Edible Plants of the World: An Illustrated Guide

I love books about the fruits of the world, and this is the best one I've found it. It's all single page per fruit with a great picture of the fruit, which is a format that works quite well. It's got around 250 different fruits listed in addition to tubers and herbs, which is way more than most books like this. I've found far more fruits I'd never heard of in here than any other source.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Spices and Herbs

I really love this book - for people who know nothing about spices, how to choose them, use them and with which type of food to mix them, this is what you need. The style is very simple, contrarily to some books where it is so dense that you end up never ready it. There is a really nice historical section at the beginning which is very interesting. I strongly recommend it, for oneself or as a gift.
