I’ve got some very exciting BIG news to share: I have a brand new e-book that’s out RIGHT NOW!

Meet Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free: A Whole Food Starter Guide & Cookbook. It’s actually not just written by me. For months now, I’ve been collaborating behind the scenes on this project with the brilliant Alisa Fleming, the powerhouse behind Go Dairy Free. Together we have compiled the ultimate starter guide for people new to the dairy-free and gluten-free lifestyle.

I know firsthand just how difficult it is to eliminate dairy and gluten in a world of processed foods and busy schedules. Maintaining good health while learning the ropes of the “DF/GF lifestyle” (as we call it) is no easy task. We didn’t want to throw a bunch of store-bought substitutes in your lap with this e-book. Instead, it is completely whole food based. Every one of the 75 recipes is simple to prepare with wholesome, real food ingredients.

In addition to the recipes (which are out-of-the-park delicious, if I do say so myself), we’ve put together five different 7-day meal plans (including grain-free and vegan/vegetarian plans) to make it easy to get the hang of this lifestyle. They are categorized seasonally, which is one of my favorite parts of this e-book. We want you to enjoy the abundance that the earth offers and eat according to what’s in season (…and quite possibly on sale!).

Here’s a quick look at what you’ll find inside:

  • Essential definitions of dairy and gluten
  • A guide to “raiding” and “reloading” your kitchen with wholesome foods
  • Lists of dairy and gluten ingredients for quick reference
  • Shopping lists for healthy pantry items, proteins, produce, and more
  • An in-depth ingredient primer
  • Tips for dining out while living a dairy-free, gluten-free lifestyle
  • 5 seven-day meal plans (including grain-free and vegetarian/vegan plans)
  • 75 healthy dairy-free, gluten-free recipes


If you’ve been wanting to take the “DF/GF leap” for a while now but have been unsure where to start, this resource was made for you. And if you just want 75 amazing recipes to add to your already dairy-free, gluten-free lifestyle, you don’t want to miss this!

It was so much fun working with Alisa to come up with this collection of recipes. Her cooking style is very similar to mine in that she uses whole food ingredients while still putting an emphasis on stellar flavor and ease of preparation. There is something for everyone in this e-book.

A few of my favorite recipes:

  • Chewy Dark Chocolate Brownies
  • Banana Cream Pie Shake
  • Florentine Flatbread “Pizza”
  • Citrus Cilantro Burgers with Peachy Keen Salsa
  • Cheesy Chicken Tenders
  • Maple Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting
  • Avocado Lime Cream
  • Salmon Chowder


I would be rude if I didn’t leave you with a few photos of these delicious eats, huh?

I’m so glad I’m finally able to share this news with you. This has been a fun project and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to partner with than Alisa.

Have fun reading and cooking!



  1. Looks like a great book, Hallie! You and Alisa are both gems, so I’m sure it’s a wonderful tome. Adding it to my wish list. :)

  2. what if you don’t have a reader? Can you still get your e book?

  3. J: It’s just available for readers at this time.

  4. J: Alisa just informed me that actually, you can order it straight to your PC without a problem.

    Alisa doesn’t have an e-reader herself, but purchases ebooks from kindle for PC, and is able to read them well, especially with the big monitor! :)

  5. Congrats on a great resource Hallie!

  6. I too have read A Light Between Oceans this past summer. While it is sad, it’s a great book that I couldn’t put down.
