Book Description

Having battled an autoimmune disease the modern-medicine way for many years, Danielle Walker took matters into her own hands and set out to regain her health through the medicine of food. After four years of turning her kitchen into a laboratory for revamping her culinary point of view, Danielle mastered the art of grain- and dairy-free cooking—and improved her well-being, eliminating all her ailments.

A self-trained chef, Danielle is the new face of grain-free cooking, tempting foodies of all stripes with her innovative, accessible recipes for delicious, effervescent Paleo food. Paying homage to the dishes she loved from her pre-Paleo life, she has ingeniously recreated all of her favorites without grains or dairy in her first-ever cookbook.

Coupling her delightful recipes with elegant photography, Danielle takes you on a multicourse Paleo culinary journey from appetizers to dessert. Because Danielle knows that she's not the only one with a persnickety toddler at the dinner table, she has included a special children's section with amusing dishes that will bring joy to any child and also pass any mom's test for wholesome ingredients.

Omitting grains, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar doesn't correlate with omitting taste in these recipes. Easy-to-follow instructions are complemented by mouthwatering photos that seem to burst off the page with flavor. Danielle's recipes are sure to leave you feeling satisfied and exhilarated, rather than deprived.

Product Description


"Grains are healthy, right? How could you ever live without them? "Against All Grain" just might change your mind about a few of your ideas--and provide some tasty "food for thought.""--Robb Wolf, "New York Times" best-selling author of "The Paleo Solution"

About the Author

Danielle Walker is the author and creator of the popular Paleo-food blog "Against All Grain" ( Having to deal with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease at only twenty-two years old, and unable to alleviate her symptoms with conventional medicine, she eventually came to the conclusion that she had to remove grains, lactose, legumes, and refined sugars from her diet. When she realized that there were many others out there struggling with the same issues, she combined her culinary skills and love for food with an equal love for journalism in a campaign to end her own agony and become a source of hope for others suffering from all types of diseases and allergies. Danielle's goal has always been to never feel deprived, but rather to feel joy and satisfaction with each bite of food she eats. She and her husband, Ryan, live in the San Francisco Bay Area with their energetic toddler, Asher, and spunky dog, Ahavah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be pain free 17 Sept. 2013
By K. Platt TOP 100 REVIEWER
I was not expecting this book to be so big. I'm sorry the publisher did not have the faith to go hardback on this - it really deserved it. It is packed with recipes and information. It is, by far, the best paleo-cookbook I have seen. It proves that so called 'restricted diets' are not harmful as we are often led to believe. Sometimes your body just needs to be listened to, with both ears. Danielle is living proof that you can reach optimum health through diet. This book is the result of her personal experience.

You'll find over 150 gluten-free recipes that are also grain-free and dairy free. It is not vegetarian, like all paleo cooking - there is a lot of meat. Read about why Danielle had to adopt a new lifestyle, the ingredients and equipment she uses. There are many sections in the book - start your morning, small bites, soups, salads and sides, the main event, for the kid in all of us, muffins, loaves and cakes, sweets and treats, basics, sip on this plus menu suggestions, resources, conversions (it's American with American cup sizes etc, so use the conversions if you are not American).

I love all the non-meat recipes. The most tempting in my opinion are Pear-berry crisp, Allergy free breakfast cookies, Rosemary-raisin crackers, Asian mango slaw, Not-a-grain bars, Banana Mousse pancakes, Cinnamon applesauce, Almond crisps, Sandwich bread, Zucchini bread, Peach streusel coffee cake, Chocolate fudge sauce, oh ok everything in the sweet section and most important - finding out how to make my sweet potato fries crispy.

You can read the success stories at the back of the book and I love the recipe index with mini photos to jog your memory. Great book, very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Paleo Book I've Bought 22 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love cookbooks and 9 months ago switched to a Paleo way of eating. I purchased this book 'against all grain', and from that point forward it changed. The recopies are designed for the family, as a mother and wife with 2 kids I still need to be practical. My daughter loves to bake and now we make banana bread, cup cakes and nice treats together. I also live in Switzerland where it is sometime difficult to purchase specialties but this book gives you recipes for basics like how to make your own Almond milk! I work full time and take my own food some home made vanilla granola for breakfast is just one of the great things. As well as the fact she has guidance if you do not have a dehydrator (again practical). Bar the treats and basics the recipes are easy and nutritious. Cooking interesting meals in itself is not a challenge as I grew up in a fusion family cooking since 9, but this book does have new ideas to add to the mix; it has added value to our lives. Great food, easy, practical and the best book I have found in 9 months that my family adore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value 31 Oct. 2013
By Kate M
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really nice, lots of pictures and good explanations. The thing that separates this book from some of the other grain free cookbooks, is that the writer shares her own experiences of why she changed to no grain. The recipes are really nice, a good mix of practical recipes and some for the sweet tooth aswell. I recommend this book to the person who is in a financial situation that allows for purchasing more expensive ingredients such as almond oil etc, as a lot of the recipes use ingredients that are on the pricey side.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm new to paleo but have found it a very easy transition using Danielle's recipes. The book is laid out beautifully, the recipes are simple yet very tasty and there is a great photo index at the back making locating a recipe very quick. I have yet to find a recipe that I don't like :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is AMAZING 5 Sept. 2013
By Mrs M
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this could be one of the best paleo cookbooks I've bought. Really varied and interesting recipes. I splashed out for the paper book as I prefer having this to the kindle version. Initially I was hesitant due to the cost - but I would pay £22 again multiple times over. There are wonderful pictures of each recipe, but more than that the recipes are really inspiring and delicious. There are so many it'll take me ages to try them all - but I love what I've tried so far. Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a beautifully inspiring book 3 Feb. 2014
By Kasia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been Paleo for a number of years now and it has become second nature to me.
I rarely do 'treats' or even fruit or naturally sweetened products so I was slightly worried about this book being full of this stuff.
However I was completely wrong.
The savoury dishes in this book are absolutely fantastic and have all been a hit so far, the only problem is I can't get through the recipes fast enough!

Not only has Danielle produced stunningly photographed dishes, but the book is beautifully designed and really a joy to hold.
I've already bought copies for my family and will continue to recommend this.
It's definitely a cookbook for foodies and I can't praise it enough.

Thanks Danielle
