About the Book

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 has become 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 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 trials, tribulations, and triumphs, you’ll find that no matter what your ailment, there is hope—that you can live a full, happy, and healthy life without ever feeling hungry, excluded, or deprived.

Because the truth is, food can radically change your life for the better.
