My Food Saved Me Review
My Food Saved Me Review
I have followed Danielle Walker since her first book, Against All Grain, came out in 2013. This was the very first gluten-free cookbook that I purchased on my food journey. I now have every cookbook Danielle has written and I have already pre-ordered her new cookbook that comes out in the Fall. So when she wrote a book I had to get it.
I absolutely love every cookbook of hers and every recipe I have made from them. When I make her recipes and serve them to others they don’t even know they are gluten-free! My favorite recipe is her 7-Layer Bars, I bring them to parties and no one even has a clue that they are gluten and dairy-free! She’s truly gifted when it comes to creating healthy recipes. So when she wrote a book about her health journey I had to get it. And it did not disappoint.
I could not put this book down. I got so involved in Danielle’s life and her family. I just had to know the outcome and how she took care of herself. I got wrapped up in the emotions of what she was going through because it was so well written. Parts of the book, ok many parts of the book brought me to tears. I could relate to the food part as well as her health issues.
I myself have IBS and keep having flare-ups and can’t figure out why. I am so excited to try and remove some things that may be contributing to it.
I feel like we are friends through her book and cookbooks even though we have never met. It is so well written and just drew me into her life and family.
I found Food Saved Me motivating, informative, uplifting, and faith-building, God has a plan for all of us! Food can make us well and food can bring us comfort. We have to love ourselves enough to want to do what is best for our health. If we are healthy we can serve God well and take care of our families and others as God intended. We can love food and eat healthy food that tastes amazing!
This is a book summary from Amazon:
This book is the story of how food saved my life.
It’s also a love story—about loving food, loving family, loving friends, and loving myself enough to take an active role in managing my own health. I have experienced a decade-long cycle of diagnosis, disease, remission, setbacks, recovery, and loss, but one thing has held true: food continues to save me. And my mission is to help you understand all the different ways food can help save you, too.
I want you to know that you’re not alone. Hundreds of millions of people around the world suffer from various types of autoimmune diseases, and millions more from food allergies or chronic ailments. While diet may not provide a complete cure, changing how and what you eat can help you manage your health and significantly reduce both the frequency and the severity of flareups. I would bet my life on it.
That’s why I have written this book. I want to share my journey so that you will know that there is a path forward—there is healing and there is hope. In fact, if you take nothing else from my story, I pray it will be that—there is hope. Hope that you can live a full, happy, and healthy life without ever feeling hungry, excluded, or deprived. Hope that with each setback comes new learning and a renewed sense of determination. And hope that food can radically change your life for the better.
