Welcome to Healing Gourmet…
Your Very Best Health Starts Here!
The fact that you are on this website shows that you understand the power of foods to promote health and protect against disease.
Of course, you’re also aware of the other side of that coin – that the rates of diet-related disease and obesity are skyrocketing!
And these numbers are lot more than mere statistics…
You probably know someone who has had a heart attack or stroke. Maybe you’ve witnessed Alzheimer’s steal the mind and memories of a family member. Or watched helplessly as cancer claimed the life of someone you love.
Perhaps even your own health is suffering… or you need to lose weight.
The good news is that you can easily prevent chronic disease (or reverse any symptoms you may already have). You can lose weight effortlessly. You can feel GREAT and have abundant energy!
And you can do all of this by harnessing the power of what is on your plate!
The food you eat today will obviously shape the body you have tomorrow. But it will also determine whether your body is in a state of renewal and regeneration… or degeneration.
Healing Gourmet is here to help you make choices that protect your health. Our mission is to provide you with the information, recipes, tools, motivation and support you need to be lean, strong and healthy for life!
Below, you will find a road map to explore this website and everything we have to offer.
But before we get to that, please allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Kelley Herring and I’m the founder and CEO of Healing Gourmet. If you’d like to learn more about how Healing Gourmet came to be (and my personal struggle to regain my health), I encourage you to read our About Page.
As you begin to click around, you’ll discover this website has a HUGE amount of content. So don’t try to go through everything at once. Take your time. And be sure to save a bookmark, so you can revisit us when you need recipes or information on a specific health topic.
Better yet, I encourage you to…

It has taken a LOT of work to create the tools, recipes, meal plans and information on this website and in our books. So, we haven’t had much time to play on social media.

You’ll also see social buttons at the top and bottom of every post on the site, so please share your favorite content. That’s how the Healing Gourmet community grows!
A Guide to the Resources You’ll Find on Healing Gourmet
The heart and soul of Healing Gourmet is about preventing and reversing disease. We do this by helping you make choices that dramatically reduce your exposure to dietary and environmental toxins, while supporting your body with the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, healthy fats and protein it needs.
But if you really want to understand what it takes to achieve optimal health (and discover what this website is all about), then please read about how nutrition influences disease – and the “Big Five” underlying causes of all chronic illness.
When you eliminate these causes, disease doesn’t stand a chance!
We also have over 20 Wellness Centers on this website, featuring dozens of research-backed articles on everything from Anti-Aging to Weight Loss. Here are some you might be interested in:
- Heart Disease
- Hormonal Health
- Brain Health and Alzheimer’s
- Weight Loss

Your Recipe for Health
Healing Gourmet is best known for our collection of more than a thousand original healthy recipes – tagged and organized in 75 different categories for your convenience.
- You will never find gluten grains on this site.
- You will never see a recipe that calls for inflammatory omega-6 oils.
- You will find no artificial ingredients, chemical sweeteners or GMOs.
- You will never see farm-raised fish or factory meats
- You will not find high-glycemic index or fructose-rich sweeteners (Honey, we’re talking to you!)
- We recommend organic produce (especially foods on the Dirty Dozen)
Here’s a sample of what you’ll find in the healthy recipes directory:
You’ll also find recipes with high levels of specific nutrients proven to support certain health conditions, including:
- Anti-Cancer Recipes
- Heart Health Recipes
- Diabetes Recipes
- Eye Health Recipes
- Pregnancy & Fertility Recipes
The sections above also include an overview of the foods and nutrients to consider (and what to avoid) if you’re concerned about that particular condition.
Of course, you’re not going to make everything from scratch. And there will be some days when you don’t feel like cooking at all. That’s why we have curated a list of healthy packaged foods, including full reviews of some of our favorites (known as Healing Gourmet’s Best Brands), with complete nutrition and allergen information.
And Don’t Forget Dessert!
If you’re a lover of sweets (and you value your health), you will be happy to know that we have several sections dedicated to creating deliciously sweet, low-glycemic and healthy desserts that won’t sour your health!
In fact, most desserts on this website contain just 5 grams of sugar or less per serving. That’s equal to one quarter of an apple!
And be sure to check out our Paleo and gluten-free baking section to learn how to use grain-free flours, healthy fats and safe sweeteners to create decadent gluten-free cookies, cakes, breads and even candies.

Keep in mind… while Healing Gourmet has been online for more than a decade, when we launched the newest version of this site in 2014 the counters on our social share buttons all reset to zero… so if you see something you like, please “Like” or “Share” or “Pin” our posts.
We truly appreciate the support!
Sharing is Caring: Please Tell Your Friends & Family
You might be surprised to learn that since our inception in 2000, Healing Gourmet hasn’t spent a single dollar in advertising. We don’t say that to brag… we probably could have reached a lot more people with our message of health if we had.
We only point it out to illustrate that our growth has come almost exclusively from word of mouth – people who appreciate what we stand for and the value we offer and want to share it with those they care about.
We hope you will do the same!
If you believe in our mission of health and you have family members, co-workers or friends who could benefit from the information and tools on this website and our free newsletter, we hope you will take a moment to send them a quick email with a link to the site.
Finally, we just want you to know how much we appreciate YOU!
We hope that you enjoy your stay and please come back often. There’s always something new and delicious cooking here at Healing Gourmet!
