For the first time, New York Times bestselling cookbook author and wellness advocate Danielle Walker writes the full story of her journey to finding life again through the healing power of food.
After being diagnosed with an extreme form of ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disease, at 22, Danielle made it her personal mission to effectively manage her symptoms through lifestyle and diet without sacrificing her passion for great-tasting, healthy food. Thousands of recipes and three New York Times bestselling cookbooks later, Danielle is a beacon of hope in the autoimmune world, helping millions of readers who suffer from disease, allergies, or chronic ailments find freedom and experience deep healing.
Now, in Food Saved Me, Danielle pens her first memoir, reflecting on the journey that brought her here: a decade-long cycle of diagnosis, trauma, debilitating sickness, remission, recovery, setbacks, hope, and healing. Danielle’s resilience in the face of sickness and loss led her to new ways of cooking, which ultimately redeemed her health and the ideal of hospitality. Through her tribulations and triumphs, you’ll find that no matter what your ailment, there is hope—you can live a full, happy, and healthy life without ever feeling hungry, excluded, or deprived. Because the truth is, food can radically change our lives for the better.
