Nourishing Meals Gluten Free Cookbook Review and Giveaway

If you are looking for a book to help you live a healthy gluten free life that will cover the whole family, I have a book for  you.  Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family by Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre is a reference book filled with information on  food allergies and sensitivities, the significance of whole foods and why eating gluten free might be the best for your health.  Not only did they include information for you but for those with kids you are going to love the sections on 7 Ways to Help your Child THRIVE and Nourishing your growing child giving you information from birth on!

Oh wait did I mention there are over 300 recipes in this book that are gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free!  I was lucky enough to get to test some along the way.  The recipe for Kale and Scrambled eggs has become a favorite in our house from the first time I made it.  As you can see I like to add the hot sauce on the plate as suggested.  It’s a great way to start the day off with greens.


If you are a health coach too, you will want to get this book for yourself and your clients.  Make sure you give them a highlighter pen with the book as there will be so much good information they will want to highlight as they read.  Throughout the recipes they offer ingredient, nutrition and kitchen tips plus ideas for variations and what to serve that recipe with.   You will have fun working your way from the breakfast recipes through soups, salads, wraps, meals, snacks, desserts and drinks.

Now I have two wonderful books to give to my clients thanks to Ali and Tom, their first book The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook: Whole Foods Recipes for Personal and Planetary Healthplus share their blog Nourishing Meals.

So here is the best part of this book for you.  The authors have given me enough to give to make 3 lucky winners.  That’s 3 signed copies of Nourishing Meals to give away!

    Hi! I'm new to your site & newsletter. I just signed up & am looking forward to it! We are eating all meals at home right now. Just recently started my family on gluten free & dairy free, and eating out right now is just too confusing & not an option… LOL Cookbooks are my everything right now, and I would LOVE to win this book!! It looks wonderful!!

    I signed up for your newsletter and am excited to get it. You page is one of many that I keep bookmarked! My family has Lyme disease and we have MANY food intolerances(I have 56) so I cook all our meals at home. is one of the others I have bookmarked. I have been wanting to make their fermented veggies without whey. They look so yummy! Thanks for all the great info on your site!

    I just signed up for your newsletter and I look forward to it!

    I have multiple food allergies and gluten intolerance, and cook at home 7 days a week–less an anniversary dinner once a year. It can be a challenge to not get stuck in a quinoa based rut and I haven't mastered gluten-egg-yeast-dairy free baking yet. I know this book contains a sourdough bread recipe that is free from all of my allergens and it would seriously help in our kitchen.

    Subscribed. I'm a high school music student, so I don't get to cook that often during the school year, but during the summer I'm head chef and I cook nearly every meal!

  5. Camille Hron October 24, 2012 at 5:19 pm #

    I am on your newsletter list, and loving it! I have been gluten free, and so is my husband and 3 sons. We eat out maybe 2-3 times a year, rest of the meals I cook at home. The cookbook will be a great addition to my recipe collection 🙂 Thank you!

  6. Lynnette October 24, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

  8. Jaymie October 24, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    I'm subscribed! I make all but one or two meals a week. The ones I don't make are usually lunches while at school if I didn't have time to pack leftovers.

  9. Heather October 24, 2012 at 6:46 pm #

    I have signed up to your newsletter. I cook about 6 out of 7 dinners a week, always make my lunch for work and always cook my own breakfast.

  10. Alena M October 24, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    I am already subscribed! I cook all of my families meals at home. We occasionally eat out (at most once a week, usually once or twice a month). I LOVE to cook, and love new recipes!

  11. Carolyn October 24, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

    I'm on your newsletter list now. I need all the help I can get to cook the new way my husband and I now need to eat. Hard to change after 6 decades, but I love to cook, and will do my best. We eat nearly all our meals at home.

  12. moriah October 24, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    Hey – already on the newsletter list and it's great! I'm a stay-at-home mom and many of us have various food allergies/sensitivities so every meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) is made in the kitchen. The kids are looking for new ideas and yummy recipes 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Melinda October 24, 2012 at 9:54 pm #

    I just subscribed to your newsletter list, but I've been following your blog for a while. Since going gluten and dairy free, I'm always looking for new and interesting recipes. I cook almost all of my meals at home.

  14. Stephanie October 24, 2012 at 11:53 pm #

    I'm subscribed to your newsletter. I make basically all of our food at home – breakfasts for 2, lunch for me, 2 lunches for hubby, and dinner for 2 x 7 days. Oh, and that's not counting snacks and goodies! We eat out one meal a week, twice at most. It's a ton of work, but saves us money and keeps us healthy 🙂

  15. Tara October 25, 2012 at 9:12 am #

    Just signed up for the newsletter. Looking forward to trying some new recipes too.

  16. Vivian October 25, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    Just signed up for your newsletter. I have been gluten free for about a year (really helped with my migraines) and cook almost all meals at home so i could really use a new gluten free cookbook! Thanks for sharing.

  17. Candyce October 25, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    I just subscribed! I cook around 4 meals each week for my husband and I.

  18. Katie October 25, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    I just subscribed! I cook 7 days a week most weeks. Eating out with three boys and a food allergy is no fun! I love trying new recipes, each week!

  19. Kelly October 25, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    I am signed up for your newsletter. We cook almost every meal at home as it's very difficult to get gluten free, or even paleo, meals in our small rural area. I recommend to most of my clients eating gluten free and would love to have a book to show them so they could order it and begin their diet transformation with good information and recipes.

  20. eatingwhole October 25, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    I subscribed to your great informative newsletter! I cook 100% of my food! I'm vegan & GF with severe allergies that makes it impossible to go out to restaurants. I don't let that stop me from eating my favorite foods!! I've started to help others like me fall back in love with food. Happy eating!!

  21. Eve G October 25, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    Definitely cook allmeals at home – 7 days/week and mostly leftovers for lunch… unless you count cooking GF oatmeal, then 14 🙂 and I just signed up for your NL!

  22. Jennifer Sitz October 25, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    I subscribed to the newsletter and I try to cook 2-3 times per week.

  23. Amy October 25, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    I am on your list!! and super excited! I was just diagnosed with Celiacs in July . I pretty much cook every meal at home, because I am still afraid to eat out. I have been reading anything I can get my hands on. And I would love a great cook book! Thank you

  24. Victoria October 25, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    I signed up for your newsletter and excited to start trying new recipes!

    I cook most meals at home. Breakfast is at home, lunch is typically leftovers from the night before or a salad then I cook dinner.

    My family starting eating this way because our almost 2 year old has many allergies and intolerances.

  30. Molly October 25, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    I just signed up for your newsletter, and I have have been gluten free for four months although I haven't made it a whole family change yet so I guess you could say I live a low-gluten lifestyle. I have four kids I homeschool and I cook every meal at home all week, so that's 21 meals! I already LOVE their first cookbook, but have been holding out purchasing this next one but I would LOVE to win it! Thanks so much!

  31. Charli October 25, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I just signed up for the newsletter. Looking forward to it. I'm always searching for information. Especially with one son who has celiac and another who is dairy free. I would LOVE to add this cook book to my collection as I cook most of our meals at home all week.

  32. CJP October 25, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    I'm all signed up! I cook almost every meal at home. The kids get their "junk" food for lunch at school….because it's all healthy stuff around here! We eat out about once a week. I am the only one GF DF SoyF in my house, but we follow a very clean diet!

  33. Ashley S October 25, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    Would love to win!

  34. Jenny October 25, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    I am subscribed and I cook 3 meals a day EVERY day for my family (my husband and I and 3 kids under 3). We try to eat as much RAW as we can and we avoid dairy, meat, refined sugars and oils, and gluten the best we can.

  35. Charron October 25, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    I'm on your newsletter list. We only eat at a restaurant once or twice a month. So I cook most of our meals at home. I'm dairy intolerant and just found out I'm gluten intolerant. It would help to have a recipe book geared toward food that I can have and enjoy. A new cookbook would be great!

  36. Angela October 25, 2012 at 6:23 pm #

    Already on the list. Thanks to you, Tom, Ali and all the others who graciously share your journey with food with the rest of us. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the new cookbook as we eat almost all of our meals at home and can always use some more inspiration.

  37. Tammy October 25, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    I signed up & look forward to adding more delicious gluten free recipes to those I love. I cook about 5 nights/week & make lunches daily. Breakfast is always up in the air 😉 Thanks for sharing

  38. Bons October 25, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    I'm on the newsletter list and I cook at home generally six days a week. There's usually one day of the week where I eat out!

  42. kim October 25, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

    I am on your newsletter list. I cook about 4 meals an evening a week….always breakfast ….it's just easier to eat at home with celiac.
