Hallie Klecker is an author, professional recipe developer, and Certified Nutrition Educator. Hallie’s first cookbook, The Pure Kitchen, includes 100 recipes for nutritious gluten- and dairy-free food with an emphasis on natural ingredients. Her most recent book, Super Healthy Cookies, features 50 gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free recipes for delicious and nutritious treats.

Hallie writes the gluten-free food blog Daily Bites, where she shares her enthusiasm for cooking with whole, natural, unrefined foods. After experiencing health issues for several years, Hallie eliminated gluten and dairy from her diet in 2008 and, as a result, has never felt better. Through living free of gluten and dairy and emphasizing pure, unrefined foods in her diet, Hallie has discovered that eating healthfully does not equal boring meals or a pantry stocked with hard-to-find ingredients. Hallie views every meal as an opportunity to heal and enjoys sharing her approach to wellness with others.
A former personal chef, Hallie received her Nutrition Educator Certification from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts and her Personal Chef Certification from the Culinary Business Academy. She lives near Madison, Wisconsin, where she currently teaches cooking classes.
