My review of Against all Grain by Danielle Walker

I recently purchased Against the Grain, I am always on the look out for grain free ideas and Paleo recipes . This recipe book is huge with over 150 recipes from breakfast ideas to main meals and grain free bakes. Most ingredients are easy to obtain , Coconut aminos I think is the other ingredient so far that I haven’t come across before.

Recently I had ago at making the n’oatmeal raisin cookies these turned out to be extremely popular with the family and only lasted a day!

The recipe was simple and easy to follow , the cookies were soft and chewy and very delicious

I also made the Banana mouse pancakes, These tasted just like pancakes I would expect to be served in the States with lashings of maple syrup. Really hard to believe they are both gluten and grain free!

There are ideas as alternatives to potato for instance mashed cauliflower and as an alternative to rice coconut – lime ‘rice’ using cauliflower .

 

Danielle Walker is the creator of a popular Paleo food blog. Having been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at 22 ( Ulcerative Colitis ) and unable to alleviate her symptoms by conventional medicine  , Danielle removed grains, lactose, legumes, and refined sugar from her diet and has virtually eliminated all her ailments. Having Crohns disease myself I can completely identify with Danielle and try to eat grain free and cows milk free also avoiding refined sugar.

I purchased my copy of Against all grain from Amazon for £20.30 this is a soft back recipe book .

I look forward to trying out lots more of these recipes very soon.

  1. Wow those cookies look really good!! I’ve always been a little wary of the whole ‘paleo’ thing, mainly because it always sounds really complicated (the recipes always seem to contain ingredients I don’t have and/or have never heard of! I don’t own agave nectar or palm sugar, etc!) and many of the recipes I see aren’t suitable for vegetarians, but the cookies and the pancakes make it sound a lot less intimidating. Will look for this book next time I’m in Waterstones! Thanks!
