The Defined Dish is the first cookbook from lifelong Texan and mother of two young girls Alex Snodgrass, who discovered the Whole30 program, which encourages people to eat whole, natural foods for 30 days, during a bout of postpartum anxiety. She says the change to Whole30 revolutionized her diet and life. This selection of recipes features wholesome, flavorful and gluten-free meals perfect for the whole family.

“Growing up, something my dad always made for us on busy weeknights was a bowl of tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. It wasn’t anything fancy—the soup was right out of a can—but we absolutely loved it. It’s still one of those delicious comfort meals that I crave after a long day, which is why I came up with this version of a creamy tomato soup for the family, which is just as satisfying as Dad’s, almost as simple and healthier. Grilled cheese optional!”
