Some of her popularity might have to do with her easy-to-follow and relatable approach—and the fact that her dairy-free, gluten-free, and Paleo recipes appeal to so many different types of people and dietary concerns... (Molly Gallagher, Well+Good)
Beautifully presented and clearly explained, Meals Made Simple is a delight for Paleo newbies and longterm Paleo-ites alike. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, and I like that there are often tips for using leftovers from other recipes in the book. While many cookbooks leave a trail of half-used jars of obscure ingredients scattered across your kitchen, Danielle actually makes it seem easy to stock your kitchen with versatile Paleo staples, all of which can be used in countless ways.... (The Kitchn)
What’s healthy, uncomplicated and definitely not boring? Well, practically any of self-trained chef Danielle Walker’s recipes in her newest cookbook, Meals Made Simple. In fact, all of the Against All Grain blogger’s meals are gluten and dairy-free — meaning you can finally enjoy dinner without feeling too bad about going for that second helping of dessert. (Rachel Sylvester The Nest)
Danielle Walker’s first book --was (and still is) a gangbuster hit, so trust me when I tell you that her second book, Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple, is just as exciting and eye-opening when it comes to eating a gluten free and/or paleo diet. I was looking to try out a recipe or two from the book but while reading it everything looked so amazing I ended up putting tabs on more than half of the pages. (Weelicious)
Danielle Walker, whose cookbook "Against All Grain" made her a celebrity with the paleo diet and gluten-free crowd, offers conscientious recipes for celebrations and holidays in her new cookbook, "Meals Made Simple." (How conscientious? Her pumpkin spice latte includes real pumpkin.) (Denver Post)
After her debut paleo recipe title Against All Grain soared to the New York Times Bestseller list in 2013, she nails it again with inspiring, beautifully photographed recipes that sound incredible—and are all made sans dairy or grains. This time around, you also get 8 weeks of meal plans and shopping lists. (Self Magazine)

Con: It is simple. Upon first receiving it and glancing through it I was a little disappointed that it seemed sparse and recipes for mayonnaise, cauli-rice and chicken stock stuck out at me. Roughly just over 100 recipes and some of them very basic. I understand why the basics are in here but I didn't expect so much beginner 'education' in a second cookbook. Seems like those of us buying it would be familiar with paleo terms/shopping already. However, as is my custom, I read through it cover to cover and that is where the real value of this book comes out.
Favorite: Those few reviewers that are unhappy with this book aren't realizing that the real value is in the unbelievable amount of time and work that Ms. Walker put into making 8 weeks of meal plans! If anyone has tried to do this on their own they'll really understand how valuable this is. We're talking 8 weeks of coordinated recipes, 8 weeks of shopping list and elaborate recipe indexes. This book is a two month meal plan and yet also a fully functioning cookbook. These recipes all work together, and leftovers are designed to be used in a new recipe (if desired). No longer do you have to open a can of coconut milk and hope the reminder doesn't go to waste, she accounts for so many of the little details like that.
So far each of the recipes I've tried have been wonderful. Actually, every recipe I've tried of Danielle Walker's has been wonderful. Tried and true. To elaborate, here are the things I love about this book:
- meal plan with shopping lists
- indexes!Read more ›
Danielle was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at twenty-two, and she spent years in and out of hospitals and taking some heavy-duty prescriptions for her condition until she’d had enough. Medical science wasn’t helping her, so she took matters into her own hands and experimented with diet. By eliminating gluten, grains, dairy and legumes, she transformed her health. So successful was she that she started a blog to help others. And so, out of that hugely successful blog, sprang the idea of creating her first cookbook.
Now we have book two, lavishly photographed by Danielle herself and filled with tasty recipes your family will love. There are recipes for quick weeknight meals, slow cooker dishes and ways to create new meals from leftovers.
Danielle shows how to protect the budget by purchasing larger cuts of meat, the whole bird instead of parts and by buying in bulk. She suggests buying online as well. I live in an area where most of the items I need are available locally, but often I purchase online to save. She’s included a Paleo cheat sheet that shows which foods to eat and which to avoid.
Meals Made Simple includes a photo section with 8 weeks of meal plans and makes finding a particular recipe easy peasy. Her Overnight Breakfast Casserole (p. 62) is scrumptious. A bit like a frittata, it contains yellow onions, white sweet potatoes, bacon, bell peppers and eggs.
My favorite dinner recipe is the Ropa Vieja (p. 158). This is a slow cooker recipe with little prep.Read more ›
So with the help of this book I have made delicious simple meals that are full of flavor and with built in ideas for the left overs. Danielle understands those of us that have low energy and need it all just made simple.
My family likes the recipes. For instance: The roast chicken is gourmet. We had it for a family gathering tonight. I use the bread recipe from her other book for sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. I have been following the week 2 menu for about 10 days now and I am able to get a meal on the table on time and everyone can eat the same food. Our son with the worst allergies frequently comments how much he likes just eating everything with everyone else. He volunteers to help me get the meals ready now! So I have simply put our whole family on the Paleo diet allergies or not to simplify my life and it is working.
This book is a game changer for our family. Plug it in and run! I love that we can all sit down together for dinner and all eat the same thing. It is simple enough I am going to give the kids each their own night to cook and have them learn how to cook for themselves too!Read more ›
