A couple of people have written asking me about the proper sickle cell diet. The best collection of sickle cell diet principles, menus and recipes that I’ve come across is in:
Back to Our Roots Food For the Gods, “Cooking for the control of sickle cell anemia and disease prevention” by Chef Dawud R. Ujamaa
You can get it from Amazon right here: http://www.amazon.com/Back-Our-Roots-Cooking-Prevention/dp/0805997695/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1228690267&sr=8-1
The best underlying principles are avoid fatty foods, those high in cholesterol and meat. Have a nutritious diet around lots of fruits, vegetables especially green leafy vegetables and lots and lots of water.
