"Helpful hints and humorous bits, Cooking with Leo is not your usual cookbook fare. Parents of children with allergy and food issues, who struggle with the alphabet soup of diets (GFCF, SCD, GAPS, etc.), will find healthful food they can make for the whole family. Along the way Erica sprinkles tips for involving the kids and garnishes with a pinch of wit!"
Ken Siri, author of Cutting Edge-Therapies for Autism
"If you're looking for recipes that will be healthy for your autistic child and your entire family, look no further. An easy-to-follow collection of recipes? Yes, Cooking with Leo is certainly that. But it is so, so, so much more. This book is a prescription on how to bring true joy to your relationship with both your autistic child . . . and with autism. . . . What Erica [Daniels] has done, simply by the nature of her golden heart, is find a way for all of us to relate to autism moms, dad, and kids. You cannot survive reading this book without being uplifted, inspired, and thoroughly educated about autism. What kind of cookbook makes you cry? This one will."
Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, CEO and director of the Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge
"No matter what the diagnosis, food is foundational to healing. While there are many amazing healing therapies and approaches for children on the autism spectrum, none will be as powerful or impactful if good nutrition is not also a part of the healing plan. For those who do not know much about nutrition or who never learned how to really cook, Cooking with Leo makes cooking nutritious and allergy-friendly food with your kids easy and fun. Erica Daniels reframes the notion of special diets” by just calling them healthy diets,” an important distinction that reminds us everyone should be eating this way! Transforming your way of cook and eating will not only improve the health and symptoms of your child with autism, but the health of your entire family. For any family with a child on the autism spectrum, Cooking with Leo is square one. A perfect, nourishing, love-filled way to support the health and development of your child."
Beth Lambert, Executive Director of Epidemic Answers and Documenting Hope, Author of A Compromised Generation
From the Author
Cooking with Leo was a true labor of love. Cooking with my children, sharing what we do everyday, and the opportunity to inspire others is more than I could have ever dreamed. To have a life bursting with purpose and passion is to have a full and beautiful life.
Cooking and sharing meals is a family tradition that we don't need to give up simply because a family member has food allergies or autism, or requires a "special diet." In fact, the practice of cooking can become one of the ways you end up connecting with your child.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Apple Inc.
