In this episode of the Be Well podcast, Dr. Frank Lipman sits down with Danielle Walker, the author and photographer of the New York Times best-selling cookbook “Against All Grain.” At age 22, Walker was diagnosed with a painful autoimmune disease. Doctors told her changing her diet wouldn’t help ease her symptoms — but she had a sneaking suspicion they were wrong.
Almost 10 years ago, Walker removed all grains and legumes from her diet, and it has made a major difference in managing the symptoms of her ulcerative colitis. Soon, she became passionate about helping other people who suffer from similar illnesses continue to enjoy delicious, nourishing food. In addition to her first cookbook, “Against All Grain,” Walker also reaches people through her popular Instagram page. In addition to sharing recipes, she also promotes the benefits of self-care.
Dr. Lipman also talks with Walker about her newest cookbook, “Eat What You Love,” a compilation of healthy, gluten-free, and dairy-free recreations of classic comfort foods.
