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 used to have a sort of addiction to collecting cookbooks. I spent a lot of time & money on it but, ironically, not a whole lot of time actually cooking from those books. But things have changed for me (thank God!). I’ve purged my collection and now only buy cookbooks that meet two criteria:

    1. Each recipe must be accompanied by a photo of the completed product; and
    2. Each recipe must include its VERIFIABLE nutritional breakdown (e.g., an annotated Nutrition Facts label).

    So, does Nourishing Meals by Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre, MS, CN meet those two criteria? Because, if it does, I am definitely adding it to my current–and well-used for a change–cookbook collection!

    HI,
    I love your book because I have found I feel more healthy, more energetic, less lethargic when I follow a dairy and gluten free diet! So I have been following you on your website for a long time now. I would love to get my hands on your new cookbook so I could explore more creative options and recipes to be healthy!
    Thanks for all your hard work.

    This book intrigues because I am learning to cook for my son who was put on a dairy and gluten free diet.

    First of all I want to thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience with those of us who are learning to “live without”. I am thankful that I live in a time that I can easily find quick internet support for me and my family dealing with a LONG list of food allergies. I give lots of credit to those before us who did all the experimenting!

    I want to share my reason why I want to win this cookbook! I do have the first book recommended to me by my son’s Naturopath and I love how the book layout is in larger print with a lot of space and easy reading. The recipes are great and educational and I have full trust in the authors that this second book is great as well. I would love to have a personal consult with them but their cookbook is the next best thing! How I wished I had this book before I had children and would have changed how I introduced foods to them differently. Now I have three sons requiring epi-pens and how ALL the cooking and teaching and learning falls on my shoulders as their mother.

    Also I have a slight disadvantage being in Winnipeg, Canada as this book is only offered on their website and the cost with the exchange rate and shipping has deterred me from buying it right now (not in the budget and everyone knows that allergy free foods are time consuming and expensive)

    I’m planning to make the water kefir recipe from you site and will let you know how it turns out.

    Keep up the great blog!

    I don’t think it’s an intrigue – I think it’s more of a quest for Health and Knowledge! I was recently Diagnosed as celiac…. Diagnosed with Hashi’s in 2009 and now I have decided I won’t let those disease dictate how I feel… so I will feed my body what it needs not what it craves! I have a DD and I would LOVE to get her eating healthy now so that when she gets to be my age she already has the tools to eat for her body also!

    I don’t have a library of GF books…. but I have a great many links… and would LOVE to have some actual books. I have been reading Tom and Ali’s site for a few months and LOVE LOVELOVE IT!

    I’m intrigued because it seems like finding GFDF recipes that I can feed the whole family is so tough. This one looks like it would be a great resource!

    I really like the “whole foods” cooking aspect!! We have had to cut out grains. I have been loving their first book, and feel this second one would be complementary.

  28. On October 9, 2012 nicole said

    I’d LOVE to try out this cookbook. I’ve been trying to follow a somewhat paleo diet for my 3 year olds digestion issues and we’ve got the dairy thing down…but cutting out all grains is proving to be too difficult. Then I recently went to the dr after battling chronic fatigue and other issues for 5 years to find out I have candida in my stomach and need to go gluten free for good. Sooo, we’ve decided to just do gluten/diary free and I need help on recipes in that area!! This cookbook looks perfect for us!

  29. On October 9, 2012 Heidi said

    I so need this cookbook. My daughter and I are both hluten sensitive and I am also allergic to diary. My husband is under going testing to determine what foods are setting him off. Any help I can get I will share. We have to become a family so we don’t feel alone in this journey.

    My 5 year old has terrible eczema. In the last year, I discovered his diet has everything to do with it. I am just learning about real nutrition and how the standard american diet is destroying our health. Problem is, I am running out of ideas of what I can actually feed our family! I don’t just want this book, I truly believe I NEED it :)

    I can’t wait to read about meals that focus as much on nutritious ingredients as they do flavor.

    I have been Gluten free for two years now. It took most of that time to convince my family to get some allergy testing done. Surprise, surprise! We are all now Gluten Free, Sugar Free and Dairy Free! This has been a difficult transition for my two daughters so having a great cookbook that we as a family could use and enjoy would be fabulous!! If I don’t win I will be ordering it! Thanks so much for your site I use it often and follow you on Facebook!!

    I would love to win this book. I have the original cookbook: Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook and I LOVE it. I have gotten more use out of that cookbook than any other one on my shelf. I share many of the recipes with my clients as well (I am a health coach). I would get so much use out of this lovely new book! Most of my clients have food allergies (and so do I), so they are in desperate need of lots of yummy new recipes.

    I just liked your page and I already have your app, yay!

    I am going to post on my business FB page right now! Pick me, pick ME! :)
