300 Healthy Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Recipes? Oh YES!!

Nourishing Meals - Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family

Nourishing Meals – Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family:

A Whole Foods Cookbook and Guide to Raising Healthy Children including over 300 nourishing gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free recipes.

And guess what? I am giving away 3 copies of it. Why? Because this is THE cookbook and resource that perfectly captures everything I believe in regarding how I feed my family. And more than anything, I believe that everyone should have a copy of this one in their cookbook collection!

This book, written by Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre, MS, CN, sets an absolute foundation for raising healthy, resilient children (and keeping ourselves that way in the process as well).

Nourishing Meals has a huge variety of recipes, from plant-based main dishes to nourishing grain-free desserts. No matter what your diets are, this book has something for everyone.

This cookbook truly is about Nutrition for the Whole Family. In it, you will discover “what nutrients are key for proper growth and development both in childhood and in utero, why going gluten-free can help solve mysterious health ailments, why removing processed foods from your diet and eating whole foods can benefit your health; as well as the causes behind the rise in food allergies and what to do about it.”

Our family has had so much fun cooking from this book. And I love the idea that everything that I make from it lends to raising healthy children…and adults!

Here are just some of the recipes we have made from Nourishing Meals and have loved in our house so far:

  • Blueberry Teff Muffins
  • Quinoa Currant Porridge
  • Pumpkin Pie Granola
  • Fruit And Avocado Bowls with Hempseeds
  • Black Bean and Potato Breakfast Burritos
  • Blueberry Peach Crisp
  • Berry Parfaits with Orange Cashew Cream
  • Pumpkin Pie with a Pecan Crust

    I am intrigued by this cookbook because my almost 11 month old son is allergic to wheat, corn, eggs, oats, barley, tomatoes, possibly rice and also no dairy. Since I am still nursing him, I am also avoiding these ingredients. My older son is allergic to tree nuts so we have a lot of challenges with food in our house! With a 1st birthday coming up, I’d love to find a special treat he can have in lieu of the standard cake. I also just need ideas for meals we can all eat so we don’t have to make a bunch of stuff for every meal.

    I recently started eating vegan, gluten, dairy and soy free. It is great to have a resource. I have such a hard time finding ideas. Everything has soy if it is vegan.

    GFDFSF is the way we roll in our kitchen, and like many people we’re in a bit of a rut. Participating in unprocessed october has led me to look for more recipes rather than always making the same old stuff, but I can always use some help!

  9. On October 4, 2012 Marcie said

    I love a chance to cook and eat more healthy, it keeps me out of my pattern of eating basically the same ingredients over and over, day after day…blah! This book will give me more chances to experience healthy and delicious foods!

    I frequently say, “if I only knew then what I know now”. It is no different when it comes to food and nutrition. I have raised my 2 children cooking the way I was raised. As time went on, I blew up to 230+ pounds on a 5’4″ frame. Not good…Things happened and my world shifted to a mostly plant based diet, in which I was able to drop 70 lbs. I’ve come to learn that my body just doesn’t do well on gluten. I feel so different. I can’t say I’m ‘allergic’, but I can honestly say I’m ‘intolerant’. Therefore, I am always searching for good, nutritious, gluten-free recipes to add diversity in my meals, etc. Perhaps your book will add to my repertoire…thanx!

    My family is vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free and all I make is very simple foods, this cook-book would get me to do more interesting delicious fun meals. Plus my oldest son is a professional cook and I’d love to show him that the way we eat is yummy and fun too. I’m also a health coach and would love to recommend it to my clients.

    I’m pregnant with twins, and I have a sensitivity to gluten, dairy (and recently, soy). I’ve been struggling with meal ideas throughout this pregnancy, and want so badly to put healthy meals on the table that are gluten, dairy & soy free, that taste great. I’d love to try your recipes! I had no idea there is someone out there with recipes within these parameters-I’ve just been modifying what I can, using mostly almonds and coconut as a flour-and grains to substitute the rest.

    I am dying to get my hands on this book. I use their first book as a bible. Pages are falling out and stained from so much loved use!

    I’m always intrigued with cook books let alone the ones that streamline my dietary needs! I’m a strict raw/plant-based foodie, as well as soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free! Always looking for new recipes to try:)

    I’m just discovering that I may have more food allergies than I would have thought. I’ve been hearing a lot about the inflammation it may be causing in my GI system. Very interested in learning new recipes.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win a copy of your book. What I like most is the recipes are gluten,dairy and soy free (seems so many people use dairy & soy ) not to mention the educational nutrition portion (which would be great to help explain to my daughter why we eat the way we do)

    I am intrigued by this book because my 17 yo son, who has a diagnosis of Autism, has been gluten and dairy free for several years. We both know that when he eats dairy, he has physical symptoms, so he’s motivated to stay away from dairy. The challenge comes from keeping him gluten free as the benefits are cognitive and behavioral, which are obvious to me, but less so to him. He frequently challenges me on the gluten free front but when I can provide delicious gluten and dairy free options, he is less likely to complain. I need all the help I can get to keep him healthy and functioning at his best!

    I have Ally and Tom’s first book which I love and in eagerly anticipating their new book. A few years ago, I had health problems. Traditional medicine were unable to diagnose my problem and I got progressively worse. I began to do my own research and suspected gluten and/or other food sensitivies.

    Reading the book and following their elimination diet and recipes was life changing. These recipes are great tasting and it still amazing how Ally was able to adapt the recipes. It was also a relief to know that there was a community of people facing similiar issues and the supportive environment that this large community fosters..
