When I was about 8 years old, my doctor recommended that I go on a wheat, dairy, chocolate and sugar free diet to see if it would help my allergies and overall health. Maybe eggs too, I don't remember. Back then, that meant goats milk (which was just AWFUL!), I don't know what kind of alternative flour, carob (nothing like chocolate! especially without sugar) and honey, which was fine. It was particularly awful for me because there were several birthdays that fell in the time frame. Mom tried re ...more

I really enjoyed this book. However, a lot of the recipes involved making food that looks like our western diet, i.e. pancakes, waffles made with alternative flours. I understand the comfort in this but it seems so difficult. if I decide to try a paleo diet I will just stick to lean meats, nuts, fruit and vegetables. No sense in making it difficult. This book has plenty of those recipes too.

Made carrot cake cupcakes, pineapple chicken lettuce burger wraps, spice-rubbed sweet potatoes, and BLT salads with cherry tomatoes.

I've made about four recipes from this book so far and they have all been delicious! My husband and I are doing a "30-day get back on track after the holidays" challenge and are following a mostly-paleo diet. We've both been feeling so much better that I can see this lasting long past 30 days.

I have been pleasantly surprised that we have both really enjoyed everything we've made out of here and I'm looking forward to trying more of her recipes. I originally checked this book out from my library

I bought the kindle edition and really couldn't get into it. I recently purchased both of her books. They are really nice books! I recently made buffalo chicken salad and it was amazing. My daughter had picked out the recipe and I didn't even think I would like it that much. I didn't have time to do it in a crock pot but I did follow her directions. I made it in a pressure cooker. (Instant Pot) I cooked it for 20 minutes and it was so good! I also made her Ranch Dressing. I had previously made R ...more

I love the EIGHT weeks of meal plans... done and shopping lists created for you. She also gives you all sorts of simple tidbits on making things ahead. It's super helpful for this mama who wants it simple and doesn't want to spend a lot of time on prep but still wants to feed good, nutritious, and tasty food to her family.

I borrowed this from the library... as soon as I return it I will be purchasing it again as I want to try more recipes and want to add some to my seasonal rotations.

One of my go-to cookbooks is Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain. In her new book, Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple, she has added even more mouthwatering delights for the Paleo chef.

Danielle was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at twenty-two, and she spent years in and out of hospitals and taking some heavy-duty prescriptions for her condition until she’d had enough. Medical science wasn’t helping her, so she took matters into her own hands and experimented with diet. By eliminating glu

Switching to a gluten and dairy free diet has been at times overwhelming and frustrating, but this book actually makes it simple. Included in this book is an eight week menu plan with a shopping list. I am no longer spending hours searching for recipes and creating menu plans--this book takes the guesswork out of cooking!

I stumbled across this cookbook at the library while looking for books that avoided dairy. Earlier this year we learned our three year old can no longer eat any dairy at all (not even as an ingredient; confirmed by CHOA). I had never heard of Walker before this, but I grabbed it since it guaranteed all dairy free recipes.

This cookbook is excellent. I don't buy into the idea that avoiding all of these foods cured Walker of her autoimmune disease by themselves, but she only mentions this in the ve

For those who are gluten and dairy free, and are interested in the paleo diet, this is a beautiful cookbook full of easy and fully illustrated recipes to try. Included is the author's own health journey, as well as tips, grocery lists, label and nutrition information, and even meal plans. This is a great resource for clean eating that accommodates food allergies or nutrition choices that make avoiding gluten and dairy a priority.

I like to be as gluten and dairy free as possible but I am also low carb. If you need low carb options this is not the cook book for you.

Great format and recipes just like the first cookbook. I really like the fact that she included basic recipes like how to make chicken broth, almond milk, and dressings as well as full-on meals. This book also includes meal plans, things to stock up on in your pantry, and lots of great information about the paleo diet. This cookbook is another keeper by Ms. Walker, and I bought it as soon as I saw she was releasing another one.

My all time favorite cookbook! I love her thought to make tearout shopping lists and still have lists in book too. I love the full page photo of every meal and the crossreferences to the side dishes. I have always wanted to learn how to cook and be able to roll leftovers into a varietty of other meals! My favorite is Week 7... Thyme Chicken, Rosemary Porkchops, Mexi Chicken Soup, and Greek Patties
Jul 21, 2015 Danielle rated it it was amazing
This would be my favourite of Danielle's cookbooks. A great source of recipes for anyone eating paleo. I was a little afraid that eating paleo would be difficult to maintain and that I may have difficulty finding ingredients, but these recipes made meal times easy!

Made many recipes from this cookbook and have enjoyed them all. Discovered ghee thanks to this book. Love the baked chicken! If you want to try paleo or just love to eat food that tastes good and is good for you pick this one up!

Love the 8 week meal plans and cut out weekly shopping lists. All ingredients for week get used up in the week's recipes so less waste. Great photos for each recipe and straightforward ingredients.

Probably the best cookbook I've ever bought that has gf/paleo recipes. I've already made several things and can't wait to make more.

Great veggie ideas and some quick meals. Like most paleo books, requires you to make your own staples, which can add quite a lot of time to meal prep (eg. sauces, rubs, etc.)

What I love most about this book is that it's designed for someone that is in the process of changing their lifestyle and possibly ill so the recipes are super easy, meal plans are designed to minimize waste, and great tips on freezing and storing. Most of all the recipes are delicious. The only down side to this book is that I got it on my kindle and find it hard to work from my kindle in the kitchen. I love the meal plans and shopping lists. My favorite paleo author - just wish they stocked mo ...more

I liked the book. With 2 children- one to go gluten free and one to go gluten and dairy free this was an easy start with the menus, grocery lists, and recipes all in one place and simple to follow. The hardest part was finding some of the ingredients.

Love the recipes and organization of this cookbook. Truly a resource.
Found some really good recipes to add to our family menu. I really like both of this author's books.
