Food saved me


Danielle Walker


Tyndale Publisher






315 pages


Danielle Walker’s health issues began as a young bride and spiraled out of control quickly. Although her doctor assured her that food didn’t cause it and wouldn’t cure it, Danielle took matters into her own hands to heal and change the colon inflammation she experienced. Literally thousands of test recipes later, the author began a blog, collected quite a following and eventually wrote a cookbook followed by others. Her husband Ryan was a rock, helping her in every way and being supportive, not only through her illness but the loss of two pregnancies as well.

Danielle’s strong determination is really inspiring and for anyone struggling with colon issues, the recipes included may be helpful.
