Nourishing Holiday

with over 50 grain-free, gut-healing recipes for every celebration.

Don't Compromise This Holiday Season:


Skip the junk and nourish your body with good fats, healthy proteins, and easily-digestible sweeteners. With a focus on foods that heal the gut, Nourishing Holiday will keep you on track so you don't miss a beat in your healing journey through the holidays.


So often a strict diet can make you feel lonely at parties and gatherings. Instead of feeling left out, bring along some party foods you can actually eat, and will be proud to share with friends.


Holiday gatherings can leave you feeling deprived when you can't enjoy the same foods everyone else is, without later dealing with painful consequences. Don't deny yourself delicious food- Nourishing Holiday is full of grain-free, gut-healing recipes you can eat without feeling guilty or suffering consequences later.


I've shared these recipes with family and friends who are used to eating grains and sugar, and I'm always delighted to hear they love my recipes! Impress your own friends who won't believe just how healthy this food really is.

About the Author

Hi, I'm Jaclyn, and I used to struggle with health issues that got so much worse if I "cheated" on my healthy "diet." The holidays were always the hardest. But I realized I could either cheat my way to painful consequences for poor food choices, skip out on fun holiday gatherings, OR create recipes I could eat that I truly enjoyed too!

I chose to get creative and remake all my favorite holiday foods. Nourishing Holiday is the result of my determining not to give in to holiday temptations, and, instead, choosing to nourish my body and allow it the gut-healing foods it needed.

Not only do I prefer to feed my body healing foods, but I've got four boys counting on me to feed their bodies the foods they need to grow into healthy, strong men. My sons also understand the importance of healthful eating and they enjoy spending time in the kitchen with me, preparing healthy food together.

I pray this resource allows you to give your body the healing foods it needs to thrive through the holidays without compromising your needs, or feeling like you have to deprive yourself of good food.

Finally- A guide that lets those on specialized diets enjoy traditional holiday favorite foods without feeling like they are missing out! I wish my family had this resource years ago!

I wish Jaclyn Harwell's e-cookbook Nourishing Holiday had been available when I started on the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet years ago. I can vividly recall the way I felt that first holiday. I was definitely torn. I had already experienced some life changing healing after just three weeks, but at the same time, how could I celebrate without all the familiar favorites I'd eaten all my life? I love that Jaclyn has been down this same path, and knows exactly how it feels. She set out to recreate the holiday favorites for her family, and now she's sharing these awesome real food grain-free substitutes with us! I've been reading the cookbook... the photos are s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g. and the recipes...oh boy. I may need to make some of these recipes earlier than holiday meals. I am definitely going to be choosing one or more of these dishes to share at the next potluck I attend. Thank you Jaclyn for putting together this gorgeous cookbook just in time for the holidays, I can't wait to try the Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake Pecan Pie...Eggnog Ice Cream...Mama's Sweet "Corn" Bread Stuffing...Party Mix...nom nom nom.

GAPS Diet Journey

There are a lot of cookbooks in the world. I can count on my hands the ones I actually use on a regular basis. Nourishing Holiday is brimming with gorgeous photographs; it's a joy to behold. But more importantly, it contains all the holiday recipes that people on the Paleo or other allergy-friendly diets desperately need. I cured my rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome by changing my diet. It took two years but I healed completely, and most people can, too. With this lovely cookbook, you can get through the holidays without cheating or depriving yourself. Even though I eat gluten and grains now, I can't wait to try these recipes.
