Spotlight on Danielle Walker from Against All Grain


Guest Editor: Danielle Walker, Author and Photographer of Against All Grain

As a working mom, I take any chance I can get to get away with my family and spend some quality time with my son. With one on the way, that time is becoming more valuable than ever, so we took a little vacation to visit family in the mountains for Memorial Day. Eating a healthy diet and teaching my son healthy eating habits is important to me, plus it’s such a fun way for he and I to bond and spend time together. We spent the long weekend making tons of yummy food, snuggling, and playing lots of board games. It was perfect! Read on for a few of the photos I featured on an Instagram takeover for Destination Maternity.IMG_1832Asher is so excited to be a big brother and loves to help in the kitchen!  Photo Credit: Jennifer Skog Photography Get Danielle’s look here.
IMG_1844It was our first day of summer here since this little guy graduated preschool Friday! We decided to take our time getting the day started and snuggled on the couch for a bit. This momma was tired! He munched on a Hidden Veggie Muffin (grain-free and packed with vegetables!) from my first cookbook Against all Grain. Throw some mini dairy-free chocolate chips into them for an extra special treat!IMG_1845 I’ve had to eat a substantial breakfast pretty much first thing during this pregnancy to avoid feeling sick and have energy through the day. I made a scramble with some beautiful farm-fresh pastured eggs, crispy bacon, potatoes, and spinach for everyone Monday morning! Next to prep some festive popsicles and sides.IMG_1849I don’t know why, but I can’t resist fruit when it has the stem and cute leaves still on! These raspberries were in such perfect shape, we picked up some strawberries at the market so my little guy and I made some healthy Popsicles to enjoy. I’ve been craving so much fruit during this pregnancy and frozen fruit is irresistible and so satisfying!IMG_1859We visited family in the mountains and our outdoor plans were postponed by a thunder and hail storm! Puzzles, coloring, board games, and Lego building were in order. Do any of you other pregnant mamas welcome lazy days like this? I know I do! The weather didn’t keep us from barbecuing the tri-tip that’s been marinating though!IMG_1862The weather cleared up and dinner was served! We had marinated tri-tip, grilled asparagus, and a salad with grilled nectarines, prosciutto, walnuts and champagne vinaigrette. What did you have for dinner? IMG_1864For more healthy recipes and ideas, see both of my cookbooks Against all Grain and Meals Made Simple and my recipe app Cookery! And you can always find me here on instagram daily to keep up with my pregnancy, daily eats, family life, and fashion finds! Xo Danielle
