Food Saved Me Pre-Order - Danielle Walker

My new book Food Saved Me is almost here and is available for pre-order now! I can’t believe this book will be in your hands in just a few short months. I am so thankful to all of you, along with my friends and family who have walked this journey with me and encouraged me to continue writing and sharing my story.

Read the first 2 chapters now!

I’ve told you this before, but pre-ordering a book really helps an author. It helps give bookstores confidence to stock it on their shelves; and it may help big box retailers bring it in, who may not otherwise carry it. Having it widely available will help it reach more people, and you never know if someone browsing Costco or Walmart who is dealing with health issues may just pass by it, pick it up, and have their lives changed.

Plus you don’t pay for it until it ships!

I hope you enjoy reading the first 2 chapters, and then head back to pre-order!

A little about Food Saved Me

Food Saved Me is the story of how food saved my life. It’s also a love story—about loving food, loving family, loving friends, and loving myself enough to take an active role in managing my own health. I have experienced a decade-long cycle of diagnosis, disease, remission, setbacks, recovery, and loss, but one thing has held true: Food continues to save me. And my mission is to help you understand all the different ways food can help save you, too.

I want you to know that you’re not alone. Hundreds of millions of people around the world suffer from various types of autoimmune diseases, and millions more from food allergies or chronic ailments. While diet may not provide a complete cure, changing how and what you eat can help you manage your health and significantly reduce both the frequency and the severity of flareups. I would bet my life on it.

That’s why I have written Food Saved Me. I want to share my journey so that you will know that there is a path forward—there is healing and there is hope. In fact, if you take nothing else from my story, I pray it will be that—there is hope. Hope that you can live a full, happy, and healthy life without ever feeling hungry, excluded, or deprived. Hope that with each setback comes new learning and a renewed sense of determination. And hope that food can radically change your life for the better.

But Food Saved Me is not just my story. Over 400 of your stories of how food saved YOU are included within the pages, so it’s OUR story. I’m so honored to share your voices, and pray that together we can reach and provide hope to those millions.

    I just started reading this book. I had sufford with stomach and intestineal issues for years. They always told me stress or IBS with constipation, Ican’t even tell you how many Endo procedures they did. But when I got divorced everything seemed ok, until one day it wasn’t. I hear ya when you say Dr after Dr and they all come back with something diffrent. So when you mentioned in your book about no grain,no lactose no prosessed or canned foods I thought the samething what else is there, then about 4-5 years ago I got a New PCP and she walked into the exam room she asked me to tell her a little about my issues’s right then and there I new she actually read my chart even before I got there. So I started to tell her that I always felt like I had something stuck in my gut, right at the top of my belly and always seemed to be Bloated. At the end of my visit she asked my if I would try a food list and I said not another food list, she said she was going to give me a list of things to eat and I needed to stay away form you ready for this? Soy, Dairy, Sugar, Corn and Gluten for 1 month at that piont I was ready to try anything. Then she said after that 1 month I want you to start incorporating one of the food at a time and see how you feel. Well to say the least I felt so much better not having any of those foods. I know I am going on and on but what a diffrence one person can do. I have brought some of the foods back in but I know when I don’t feel well right off the bat. I guess I am telling you all this because I think the more people that are aware of what foods can do to one’s body is better than not knowing at all.

  6. Food saved me made me feel like someone in this world “got it”! When you spoke about mourning foods and the traditions associated with them, I started crying! Actually I was crying minutes into the book. Your story is so like my story. For years I have been trying to figure it all out. What works and what doesn’t. I already ordered for my 25yr old niece all the recipe books and your memoir. In her journey, she has been pondering going to culinary school to be a chef for people with food restrictions – like herself. I know she will find in your story and your recipes inspiration to succeed. Thank you for your amazing gift of your time, your talent and your love – sometimes at the cost of your health. Take time off when you need it. Use whatever you feel is necessary to heal. You know your body better than anyone else. Never worry we will judge you. We are the ones who also “get it”!

    This book just changed my life. I would love to find some thing else to keep reading that would also be along the same lines. I’ve ordered the cookbooks, but would really like another great read. Recommendations?
