Overview

Beloved food blogger and New York Times bestselling author Danielle Walker is back with over 100 new Paleo recipes in her sophomore cookbook, Meals Made Simple—a collection of gluten-free, dairy-free, and Paleo-friendly recipes for easy weeknight meals.

Diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at twenty-two, Danielle Walker spent many years in and out of the hospital and on high dosages of debilitating medications before taking her health into her own hands and drastically changing her diet. In a true lemons-to-lemonade story, Danielle transformed her adversities into opportunities and created her wildly successful blog, Against All Grain, in an effort to help those in need eat well and feel great, without feeling deprived.

With recipes that make cooking for the grain-free family both easy and enjoyable, Meals Made Simple answers the age-old question: “What’s for dinner?” Danielle Walker takes the guesswork out of meal planning with eight weeks’ worth of dinner ideas, complete with full shopping lists and recipes for using up leftovers. Whether we’re moms, students, or business owners, at the end of the day we all want fresh, home-cooked meals that are easy to prepare. And we want lots of variety.

Preparing real foods can be time-consuming and monotonous, but Danielle brings both simplicity and creativity to the everyday meal with an enthusiasm for flavors and textures that are often lacking in easy weeknight dishes. Meals Made Simple includes a variety of slow cooker, one-pot, and thirty-minute meals, as well as ways to create entirely new dishes from leftovers.

As in her critically acclaimed first cookbook, Against All Grain, Danielle offers special “tidbits” to help ensure that your meals turn out picture-perfect. The vibrant flavors and colors in these grain-free dishes, like slow-cooked Pork Ragu, Beef Stroganoff, Peruvian-Style Chicken, Chicken and Rice Casserole, and Barbecue Salmon with Peach Salsa, add delight to any meal and put an end to all those nights of mundane grilled chicken and steamed vegetables. Even the desserts are quick to make, should a craving or a last-minute celebration arise.

Features include

·         make-ahead options

·         8 weeks’ worth of dinner ideas

·         nutritional facts for every recipe

·         shopping lists for fast grocery runs

·         suggestions for how best to use leftovers

·         slow cooker, one-pot, and 30-minute recipes

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Danielle Walker's "Against All Grain" wasn't just the title of her first book and the name of her popular blog; it's her clarion call for gluten-free and dairy-free meals. Her second cookbook provides more sustenance and satisfaction for families who favor a grain-free Paleo diet. Like her blog, Meals Made Simple is designed for busy average families. Its hundred plus recipes are supplemented by shopping lists; a full month of dinner ideas; a variety of one-pot, slow-cooker, and 30-minutes recipes for harried home cooks; and "tidbits" and tips to make that home cooked meal perfect.

Meet 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.

    Congrats, you are one click away from a life-changing step into

    Congrats, you are one click away from a life-changing step into the ultimate succulent healthy eating heaven! Whether you are new to Danielle Walker’s irresistibly delicious recipes or an Against All Grain vet who can whip out her legendary Indian-spiced Pork Roast with Cumin-Curry Carrots topped with the glorious Asian Pear Chutney that single-handedly changed my life last year, you will absolutely love her brand new recipe book: Meals Made simple! Superlatively flavorsome and ambrosial, yet even easier and faster to make! Yes, you and I have just won the foodie lottery!
    I have her Vegetable Biryani (p216) on the way but I got so excited by the entire book that I already did my grocery shopping to also make her tantalizing Mediterranean Braised Lamb (p176) with Roasted Squash and Beets in Tahini sauce (p234), as well as her scrumptious slow cooker Thai Beef Stew (p160). Oh and it is just the beginning of a serious cooking spree as I am already doing a double-take of longing at every recipe I flick through. Before long, I plan to tackle her Beef Stroganoff (p150), her Peruvian-style Chicken (p116), her Meyer Lemon Curd Cakes (p276), her Crab and Asparagus Linguine (p200) and so many more delectable paleo feasts. And to think that a year ago I had never heard of “paleo” or even used coconut oil, coconut aminos, or almond flour; and spiralizer certainly wasn’t in my vocabulary - actually “vegetables” wasn’t either! And as a French woman living in Texas you can imagine how weird it felt to cut all dairy (ah le fromage!) and grains (ma baguette!) from my usual diet, only to discover a whole new world of extraordinary eating! A year ago I was on diabetes and high cholesterol medicine, but after only three months of cooking Danielle’s food, my internist took me off all meds! Wow! Or as we say in French: waouh!
    As you can see, Danielle had already achieved an astounding tour de force with her first book by offering jaw-droppingly flavorful recipes presented in a format that made me follow recipes for the first time of my life, and cherish them as if they had been handed down to me by my very own great-grand mother. Against All Grain and the surprising healing that it brought had become that precious. Little did I know that the best was yet to come because now her latest offering, Meals Made Simple, is the gift that keeps on giving as it is filled with a treasure trove of easy-yet-extraordinary recipes and ideas that will keep you healthy all year around but it is also an ingenious goldmine of valuable information that will help you navigate the paleo lifestyle with ease and confidence. And I was literally blown away by her 8-week meal plan and the accompanying shopping lists.
    Indeed Danielle Walker’s Meals Made Simple is more than a recipe book, it is the gift of life from an incredible woman, who defied the odds and tragedy, to all the people for whom eating healthy has become not only a priority but a necessity. Thank you Danielle, keep on cooking… and saving lives!

    Agnes, Richardson, Texas.

    I was really excited to get this book, because I loved Danielle'

    I was really excited to get this book, because I loved Danielle's first cookbook.  I tried almost everything in her first book, and I've tried several things from this book:BBQ chicken, biscuits, buffalo chicken, meatballs, chipotle barbacoa (one of my favorite recipes of all time, and super simple!), wraps, strawberry shortcake, and brownies. I can honestly say that this is one of the best cookbooks I've ever seen, and if you could see my cookbook collection, that is saying a lot!!  All of her recipes are gluten and dairy free, but you wouldn't know it by eating the food.  Everything I've made has turned out amazing.  The instructions are simple and easy to follow as well.  Every one includes tips on how to prepare ahead of time and how to freeze for later.  I really like the section in the back that has some basics like ketchup, barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, herb rubs, etc.  I never realized how easy it could be to whip up my own barbecue sauce!  I'll never by that stuff out of the bottle again!   This is the kind of food that you can keep in a regular rotation, take to potlucks, and serve to just about anyone.  I took the brownies to work, and they were devoured!  I didn't tell anyone they were gluten and dairy free until they were gone!  I highly highly recommend this book!!  You will not regret it!!

    This book is empowering. Anyone starting on Paleo or SDC to hel

    This book is empowering. Anyone starting on Paleo or SDC to help cure severe GI symptoms is likely to find the whole cook-and-shop merry-go-round exhausting, just at the time they are feeling their worst. This book makes it easy. The meals are simple to cook and the shopping lists for delicious, healing weekly meal plans make things so easy, and much cheaper than venturing into Whole Foods on your own. Even her roast chicken brought new flavor to my SCD standby, lining the roasting pan with butternut squash and carrots (I also add some scallions) halfway through cooking. Walker never disappoints.
