Food As A Prescription is a handbook for those that wish to alter their diet due to food allergies or for anti-inflammatory health benefits. Why was this an important book for you to write?
When you go through a traumatic experience and come out better on the other side it is quite significant. It makes you want to shout about that experience from the rooftops so others who are suffering in similar ways know they are not alone and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. That said, changing something as fundamental as your diet can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Food As A Prescription eliminates the confusion and guesswork of evolving into a “restrictive” diet. We wrote this book to enlighten and empower others, as well as ensure they find a path to success as they embark on their own journey.
What is a common misconception you feel people have about food allergies?
The most common misconception is that nothing will ever taste good again and that it will be impossible to go out and enjoy life the way you did prior to changing your diet. While there are always challenges in life, nothing could be further from the truth. We have personally found all sorts of new ways to approach food that not only allow us to eat within our parameters, but also introduced us to wonderful new things to enjoy. People typically concentrate on what they can NOT eat, but we “flipped the script” to concentrate on what we CAN eat. These common misconceptions eventually led us to create LOCA Foods Inc, where we provide foods free from gluten, dairy, soy, and corn, yet they are still amazing in flavor and texture. Our company motto is “All We Do is Delicious”!
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?
Mindset matters! While modern medicine is great at setting bones, it still takes a predominantly generalized approach to most health and wellness. If you are struggling to be heard, some of our best advice is to never give up and always be your own advocate.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
Our next book, All We Do is Delicious, is a cookbook which will focus on delicious recipes free from gluten, soy, corn, and/or dairy. At the moment we are currently focused on getting our online bakery up and running smoothly. We plan for All We Do is Delicious to be available before the end of 2023. You can follow us online via Facebook and Instagram (@LOCAFoodinc), where we will announce updates for the book, or visit our website, LOCAfoodsinc.com, to get a handful of our favorite recipes for free right now.

Food As A Prescription is an essential book for anyone conscious about what they consume. Authors Anthony and Staci Lo Cascio write in-depth about food and how we should consume it to work effectively in our bodies. In the book, the authors go into detail about the nutrients each food provides. This handbook will help readers make the change to an anti-inflammatory diet, be it for medical reasons or just a desire to be healthier.
In this educational book, readers will learn about healthy eating habits, allergies, food intolerances, and much more. The authors provide crucial knowledge about food consumption and the impact it has on the body. The authors speak from research and experience, giving readers their life-changing advice on how to gradually improve their health while still being able to enjoy their favorite foods.
One of my favorite parts of this informative book is that the authors share different foods you can eat so as not to have a bland diet. They show that living healthy is not boring and provide delicious recipes in the book. The recipes are simple, straightforward, require few ingredients, are healthy, and taste good. Readers will gain the confidence they need to make meals from scratch. My favorite section was how to make staples for your pantries like All-Purpose Flour Mixture, pancakes, homemade dressing, dry rubs, and even chocolate chip cookies. In other chapters, readers will find helpful information such as food diary examples, safely eating out, and what a change in lifestyle can do for your health.
One important tip from the book is on reading the ingredients of everything. The authors advise that if you are not able to pronounce an ingredient, Google it or don’t buy. The authors are honest and upfront about why they chose this lifestyle and what made them decide to write this book, and I found their view to be refreshing.
Food As A Prescription: A Handbook for Those Currently On or Prescribed a Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free and/or Dairy-Free Diet is an illuminating book for those that are faced with making drastic dietary changes in their life. This book offers information on how food impacts your health and teaches readers how to integrate changes into their life without feeling the loss of a food group, leading to longer and more lasting health changes.
