Product Description

Review

Meals Made Simple brings culinary excitement to the health enhancing world of low-carb and gluten-free. For anyone who embraces the notion that food matters in terms of health and longevity, this book is a treasure. (David Perlmutter MD, - Author, #1 New York Times Bestseller: Grain Brain, The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers)

Some of her popularity might have to do with her easy-to-follow and relatable approach—and the fact that her dairy-free, gluten-free, and Paleo recipes appeal to so many different types of people and dietary concerns... (Molly Gallagher, Well+Good)

Beautifully presented and clearly explained, Meals Made Simple is a delight for Paleo newbies and longterm Paleo-ites alike. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, and I like that there are often tips for using leftovers from other recipes in the book. While many cookbooks leave a trail of half-used jars of obscure ingredients scattered across your kitchen, Danielle actually makes it seem easy to stock your kitchen with versatile Paleo staples, all of which can be used in countless ways.... (The Kitchn)

What’s healthy, uncomplicated and definitely not boring? Well, practically any of self-trained chef Danielle Walker’s recipes in her newest cookbook, Meals Made Simple. In fact, all of the Against All Grain blogger’s meals are gluten and dairy-free — meaning you can finally enjoy dinner without feeling too bad about going for that second helping of dessert. (Rachel Sylvester The Nest)

Danielle Walker’s first book --was (and still is) a gangbuster hit, so trust me when I tell you that her second book, Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple, is just as exciting and eye-opening when it comes to eating a gluten free and/or paleo diet. I was looking to try out a recipe or two from the book but while reading it everything looked so amazing I ended up putting tabs on more than half of the pages. (Weelicious)

Danielle Walker, whose cookbook "Against All Grain" made her a celebrity with the paleo diet and gluten-free crowd, offers conscientious recipes for celebrations and holidays in her new cookbook, "Meals Made Simple." (How conscientious? Her pumpkin spice latte includes real pumpkin.) (Denver Post)

After her debut paleo recipe title Against All Grain soared to the New York Times Bestseller list in 2013, she nails it again with inspiring, beautifully photographed recipes that sound incredible—and are all made sans dairy or grains. This time around, you also get 8 weeks of meal plans and shopping lists. (Self Magazine)

About the Author

Food blogger and author of the New York Times best-selling cookbook, Against All Grain (www.againstallgrain.com), Danielle Walker, is the new face of grain-free cooking. A self-trained chef, Danielle tempts a range of appetites with her innovative, accessible Paleo-influenced recipes that are not only healthy and delicious, but are also credited for saving her life. Paying homage to the dishes she loved from her pre-Paleo days, she imaginatively recreates all of her favorites without grains, gluten and most times, dairy.

A Diagnosis and Decision
For months, Danielle suffered from drastic weight loss, joint pain and malnutrition. After countless doctor visits, she was diagnosed with a severe form of Ulcerative Colitis at age 22, just two months after getting married. Despite her expansive array of medications and prednisone steroids, Danielle found herself hospitalized numerous times each year, admitted repeatedly for multiple blood transfusions due to morbidly low hemoglobin levels.

Left with a choice between surgery or a life-long weekly treatment with harsh side effects, Danielle began her own research to explore other options. A friend’s success on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) led Danielle to give it a try, only eating grain-free, sugar-free, starch-free, and unprocessed foods. Although no doctor would support a dietary change as a part of her treatment, Danielle realized that she could take things into her own hands to achieve real results.

Cooking by Necessity
Danielle noticed improvement, but committing to a new, drastically different diet was not easy. When her son was just 9 months old, she had an extreme setback which caused her to be hospitalized yet again and required multiple blood transfusions. She began eliminating more food groups including grains, lactose and legumes, following a plan that closely mimicked the Paleo diet. Seeing drastic progress after just 48 hours, Danielle began dedicating her free time to creating delicious comfort foods that could be enjoyed on a restricted diet. She focuses on flavors and textures, refusing to feel deprived despite her limited food choices.

Sharing her Success
Danielle started her blog, Against All Grain, to help others suffering from similar ailments continue to enjoy food. Her recipes are all entirely grain-free, and consequently gluten-free, free of refined sugars, and minimal to no dairy. Most are appropriate for those following the Paleo, Primal, SCD, GAPS, and gluten-free lifestyles, and more. With her acquired culinary skills, love for food, and an equal love for journalism, she has become a source of hope for others suffering from similar allergies and autoimmune diseases.

Coveting a large, but loyal following on her blog, Danielle expanded beyond the internet and released her first cookbook, Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great, in July 2013. With a large social media and blog following, Danielle has become a beacon of hope in the food community.

Danielle lives in San Francisco with her husband and son.

I love Danielle's cookbooks. I now have both hers and we cook from them. It's been a challenge going gluten free (I'm newly celiac) and then going grain free too ( several family members have recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and grains can cause inflammation in the body which increases the chance of developing Alzheimer's. All I can do it take supplements and keep the inflammation in my body down). I find that using coconut flour and almond meal much easier than I thought I would. It was actually easier to go grain free than it was to go gluten free. Perfect book, great photos and organization in the back make it so easy to use this book.It even shows which recipes follow which problems (vegan, paleo, gluten free, easy to make). this makes choosing recipes even easier. I hope she writes another one soon!!

I'm really disappointed. Lots of explanation on Paleo again. Same recipes from the first book. Really disappointing desert recipes. There's not a lot of recipes and definitely not enough new stuff to me. Her first book is way better.

The book is beautiful and the new recipes seems really good.

I absolutely love this book! I have made at least 20 recipes from it and continue to have all of them in our regular menu. I keep trying new ones and every one I have made, my whole family really enjoys. I have 10 Paleo cookbooks and this one is always my "go to" book. Can't recommend it enough! All the meals are quick and simple and delicious!! My favorite recipe so far is the pork chili, the flavours are amazing! Thanks for all your hard work to make life easier for us Danielle!

I love, love, love this cookbook! I've been suffering from ulcerative colitis for many years but have been on and off the wagon in terms of my eating habits so it's been a big struggle to get the colitis under control. I've been a fan of Danielle's for the last few years but have only dabbled with her cookbooks (a recipe every once in awhile). No longer! For the past week I've made nothing but the recipes from this cookbook and I'm very happy to report that for the first time in a long time my symptoms have 100% disappeared! And I can still eat my favourites - brownies and cookies! The icing on the cake here (pun intended) is that every recipe I've tried has been absolutely delicious and my picky boyfriend loves them too. Thank you for changing my life Danielle!

This is a wonderful cookbook. This is Danielle's second book and I whole heartedly recommend purchasing both books. I bought this one first and was absolutely delighted with the quality of the recipes that I tried. My favorite recipe is the Peruvian-style chicken. I have made it many times as it has become a family favorite due to the wonderful flavors in the spice rub and the way it tastes with the sweet potato, yellow peppers and onions that are roasted with the chicken. I have also made the California chicken wraps and the meatloaf meatballs. This book has some nice salad dressings and the barbecue sauce is good as well. I'm glad that I bought this book.

This was the first book I read which also has "nightshade free" and indicated that eating things from this family can actually cause problems. We had been on the "Whole30" menu plan for 21 days and my husband was feeling no better. This was a real worry for me and I had begun thinking of dire diagnosis to explain his symptoms. Without this book detailing the connections to nightshade, we may have never found the source of these problems. Now, 12 days of "Whole30" AND no tomatoes, peppers or potatoes we are finally reaping the benefits of our efforts! Without dairy or tomatoes there are few choices and the recipes in this book are invaluable for that. Loved the "wraps"! They come out beautiful and tasty! So nice to have something to put fillings in and is portable for lunches! The waldorf chicken salad was really good too!

Great book - especially for someone new to the grain free / paleo regime. Recipes are clear & easy to understand. I have dozens marked as the first to try - its so hard to pick just one for the current meal.. The weekly shopping list and meal planner is a hugely valuable asset & makes planning so muck easier. Recommend highly

A beautiful book with simple, gorgeous recipes. I love the tear-out cheat sheets and grocery list, and the 8 wk meal plan! Cant wait to get started in the kitchen with it, just like "Against all Grains" and "Thankful" i am sure it wont disappoint!
