Simplistic, healthy recipes that work. What more could I ask for? Expect loads of meals and goodies packed with whole grains and vegetables.

Two Winners will Receive this Massive Healthy Cookbook!

I vividly remember the day, when we stood around a small table at a friend’s house looking at Ali’s amazingly thick binder of original healthy recipes. “I’ve got hundreds of recipes completed, but haven’t had time to put them all together,” she said. Well, amongst the chaos of her busy and packed household, Ali finally compiled all of those recipes into one amazing cookbook, Nourishing Meals.

To note, both authors, Alissa and Tom, hold degrees in nutrition from Bastyr University. Ali has worked as a personal chef, and Tom travels frequently, speaking at events, and for his work as a faculty member of the Autism Research Institute. They are a powerhouse husband and wife duo of knowledge and good food.

That said, Nourishing Meals starts out with some excellent information from Tom on why the gluten-free diet can benefit your health, a look at the causes of food sensitivities and allergies, how to raise a healthy eater, key nutrients and contributors of deficiencies, and much more.

Then, it ventures into an entire novel of recipes, like these …

Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family
Dark Teff Sandwich Bread

Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family
Creamy Tomato Asparagus Soup

Just a few others that I dog-earred to trial included:

  • Buckwheat Hazelnut Pancakes
  • Healing Ginger Miso Soup
  • Pecan Crusted Chicken and Apple Salad
  • Moroccan Quinoa Pilaf
  • Sweet Potato Falafels
  • Thai Fish Curry w/ Garden Veggies
  • Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
  • Buckwheat Chia Tortillas
  • Maple Pecan Pie
  • Peanut Butter Monster Cookies

In addition to the 300+ recipes, Ali covers the nutritional benefits of soups and stocks, tips for getting your children to eat more  vegetables, charts for soaking and cooking whole grains, and ways to preserve the harvest, including recipes for lacto-fermented vegetables.

Nourishing Meals is 100% gluten-free and rich with so many wholesome recipes and ideas. Though it isn’t completely dairy-free, there are still around 300 dairy-free recipes to choose from. For the recipes that do contain dairy, most are pretty easy to adapt as Ali isn’t heavy handed with cheese, milk, or butter, and she’s certainly no stranger to using homemade almond milk and coconut oil.

      I love yogurt and veggies and fruit and hummus. Tofu is another fav of mine, but no one will eat it around here but me. I can’t convince them it is good tasting,New recipes would be so helpful, I could sneak some healthy things in on them!

    • Sheena SeewaldJanuary 22, 2013 at 1:28 pmReply

      I love whole some, seasonal, and colourful fruits and vegetables. Teff would have to be the ultimate grain in this household, and wild fresh fish as a protein favourite.

    Spinach is great. It is so versatile and can go in most anything.

    I love vegetables and protein. My favorite food is bread, but since I developed herniated discs, I can’t have it because the wheat is an inflammatory agent in my body. I would love to know how to cook good tasting gluten-free bread that doesn’t have the consistency of rubber.

  41. Sally HaldorsonJanuary 21, 2013 at 10:17 amReply

    Kale is my favorite, and not just because it’s popular. While others find it too bitter or dominant, I think it’s sweet and subtle. Must be my tastebuds. I love any veggie roasted, like cauliflower, squash, asparagus, broccoli. This book looks INSANELY helpful. I’m trying to lighten up for tennis season, as well as combat inflammation, so it’s really important to me to eat gluten-free, so I don’t get injured.

    I just recently became vegan and gluten-free, initially as a detox, only to find out I’ve actually been gluten-intolerant my whole life! A lifelong skin condition I was told was hereditary and incurable was actually from gluten! Your site is great an I’m still trying to find new recipes so this would help me greatly. Thanks for your contributions with this site.

    I love swiss chard. Nothing like some steamed swiss chard with onion, garlic and potatoes, all splashed with some olive oil, and a dash of sea salt and pepper. Yum! Would love copy of your book as I’m always looking for new gluten/dairy free recipes for my 18 month old daughter! Shared on FB.

Recently I was told I have multiple food allergies: gluten, oats, some nuts, dairy, beef, pork, sugar, chocolate, coffee…. & many others. So, eating, period, is difficult! I would be so very thankful for the help this book could provide.

    My favourite healthy food is probably Kale, especially because most of the time it can be from local farmers! I particularly love it because you can squeeze it in to so many recipes to boost the nutrition factor. Avocados and coconut are definitely up there as well (and dark chocolate)!

    I love kale. I make kale chips, add it to soups and stews, braise it with some homemade chicken broth and a yummy tahini sauce, add it raw to salads, add it to smoothies in the warmer months. I am also into local organic pumpkin seeds right now! They make a great “seed butter” with flax and sunflower seeds

    I’m a huge fan of foods that are versatile: 1) Quinoa – can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or any snack in between (I also use quinoa flour to make Alisa’s gluten free pumpkin quinoa corn bread). 2) Pumpkin – I love it in soups, bake goods, smoothies, etc. 3) Nuts – not only are they a fast snack, but they can be blended to make milk, serve as filling for a cheesecake, be a yummy addition to salads, stir fries, etc.

    It’s hard to choose one favourite food. Since discovering some gluten free food website, “Whole Life Nutrition” being one of them, I’ve gone crazy with cooking foods which are both healthy and tasty. But just to name few, I guess banana would be my top favourite! Satisfies my sweet tooth instantly! Gluten free bread. I come from a small country in Europe where we eat bread with everything. Being able to eat bread that doesn’t cause bloating its great. And I think my third but certainly not last favourite food is the newly discovered kale. So easy to take in with smoothies, yet super healthy! Thanks

    I cannot tolerate cows dairy which is fine considering the bad side effects it may give.
    My favourite foods are fresh local organic vegetables and herbs which I love in any form, the less processed though the better. They are always healthy. I also love seasonal local organic fruits. On top of that I consider unpasteurised fermented foods to be one of the healthiest as well.

    My favorite meal usually involves a really good roasted chicken, especially when the meat is added to homemade chicken soup or stew! Ali’s first book is AMAZING so I can’t wait to check out the new one! Tom and Ali are both extremely passionate about truly healthful living and eating, all the more amazing as they still manage so well with a large family and such busy schedules! Very inspiring :)

    My favorite foods come from the veggies my daughter and I grow in our garden. They are the freshest. Our tradition is to make homemade Mamas Italian sauce…yum! We recently discovered that my daughters severe chest pain is from GERD. We have just started on our wheat free and dairy free journey, thanks for such a great website!

    I recently embarked on a healthy lifestyle change after my 2nd son was born. I quickly learned that things I was eating (dairy) was upsetting him very badly. Because I want what’s best for him
    And me I decided to give up dairy to continue nursing and eat foods in their natural form. I have felt great and it’s helped my body get back into pre-baby form. I now watch what my whole family consumes especially my toddler. Loving this new healthy journey and especially fruits and my new found love of sweet potatoes. Would love to win this cookbook, it would be a great supplement to my new lifestyle

    Favorite healthy food has to be walnuts:) raw not roasted and they are added to almost everything I make.

  284. Carol KasmiskieJanuary 23, 2013 at 3:10 pmReply

    I love berries of all kinds and asparagus!

  285. ChristinaJanuary 23, 2013 at 3:38 pmReply

    Artichokes. I love pretty much all fruit (a recent trip to Hawaii changed my mind about papaya, the only fruit I used to dislike), all vegetables, nuts especially cashews. But artichokes always jump out at me on a menu and are my most favourite food.

    Thank you for running the contest!

    Happy to see mention of these authors. I’m on their amazing elimination diet which I first read about on their website & blog and then dove into when I got their other book, THE WHOLE LIFE NUTRITION COOKBOOK. This diet has quite simply given me back my life. Three months into it and feeling consistently fabulous – energetic, happy and motivated. Who would have thought that food choices could make such a difference! I would really like to spread the word to everyone not feeling their best. Indeed what steps can be taken to get the general medical profession up to speed on food intolerances? Anyway, I’d love to receive NOURISHING MEALS to learn and share more fabulous eating. Thanks.
    Some of my favourite healthy foods are avocadoes, blueberries, coconut milk, roasted sweet potatoes and adzuki beans. Oh and veggie and fruit smoothies. Delicious!

  293. M.January 24, 2013 at 8:21 amReply

    Oh man. My favorite favorite healthy food ever, I think: homemade apple/carrot/beet/cucumber/ginger/lime juice. So delicious!

  294. Jaimie F.January 24, 2013 at 9:25 amReply

    My favorite healthy food/vegetable is artichokes. I love all fruit. I love carrot, ginger, cashew soup. I also make a smoothie each morning with veggies and fruit and flax. Hope I win! I need some new ideas!

    I recently made a delicious fruit salad of: fresh strawberries, honeybell tangerines, pomegranate seeds, red onions, tossed in a dressing of EVOO, lime juice, and pomegranate seeds (blended together.) Very satisfying a full of Vit C and antioxidants to ward off colds & flu this time of year!

  304. Julia VanceJanuary 25, 2013 at 8:09 amReply

    I love to make and eat kale with lots of garlic and serve it with cultured vegetables.Yummy! Ali’s first book is just fabulous.

  305. Susan MonroeJanuary 25, 2013 at 9:07 amReply

    Favorite food is Kale. Not only because I really enjoy it, but also because it is so versatile and the only green leafy vegetable my son eats without complaint (actually asks for it). He (we) like(s) it in a salad w/ apples, red onion and sunflower seeds, included in homemade sausage and turkey/quinoa meatloaf. He especially loves it when I dehydrate it, grind it into a powder and then sprinkle it on popcorn. Yumpcious!

    Thought I’d share one more favorite. It’s my daily noon time treat. go raw real live chocolate. Nothing but raw organic cacao and raw organic agave nectar. Little bit of heaven on earth…

    My favourite healthy foods, well where do I begin? My absolute favourite is 75% dark chocolate with raspberries. It’s my little treat – great antioxidant, vital nutrients, good for the heart, good for blood sugar, and it makes me feel happy :)

    My other favourite healthfoods are peanut butter, and superfood spirulina, which is amazing and packs a punch with vtamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids.

    I love pumpkin! The pumpkin we get in Hong Kong is so sweet, you can use it in cakes or biscuits. Bake it, roast it, mash it, cream it in soup, fry it – so many ways to use this wonderful natural vegetable…

    In this Aussie heat, I’m very big on salads. My favourites are quinoa with a pomegranate molasses dressing, any green salad with asparagus, beets, pumpkin seeds, carrot & slices of anchovies for that salty zing plus black bean & sweet corn.

    Fresh Salads with homemade Salad dressings are my favorite. My other is Greek yogurt with fresh berries. I am a cookbook fanatic and would love to add this to my library. I have been Gluten Free for just over a year now and am always looking for good Gluten Free Ideas…I have shared this both in my feed on facebook and in my Food Glorious Food group I share with friends who enjoy cooking as much as I do.

    OMG everything I have read from all the comments have made me so hungry. I wish I had some of your recipes people. I am Gluten Intolerant and just found out I am allergic to Dairy. I seemed to have no trouble with butter so this is good. I am also trying to start veggie and fruit drinks to get my daily requirements. I Bake lots and cook everyday because I know what I am eating –no gluten–very little sugar–no dairy–organic and as healthy as I can be with low meats and more steamed veggies and fruit salads. I made a spiced fruit in a crockpot . So delicious with just cinnamon and allspice in it. My home smells good every night when family comes in. Happy New Year’s to you all.
