These Delicious, Easy to Prep, Gluten-Free Meals will Make Your Gut Happy

Nashville, TN, August 11, 2020  ̶ ̶  Rancher, restauranteur and TV cooking personality Mee McCormick serves up delicious, gluten-free recipes designed for optimal gut health in her latest cookbook, My Pinewood Kitchen: A Southern Culinary Cure. With everything from immune-boosting smoothies to soups with probiotic power and reimagined Southern entrees, My Pinewood Kitchen is packed with microbiome-friendly meals that give new meaning to the phrase comfort food

Every recipe in the book is gluten-free and created for optimal health benefits, even decadent sounding dishes like Kentucky Caramel Chicken and Veggie Mac and Cheese. There are more than 130 recipes, and each one can be customized for Keto, Paleo or vegan diets. It truly is an "all-inclusive" eating plan for everyone in the family.

McCormick first turned to the healing power of food when doctor after doctor offered very little relief for her Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto's. Her switch to whole-food cooking helped her heal her gut and her immune system and completely altered the trajectory of her life. 

My Pinewood Kitchen is a follow-up to her wildly successful, life-enhancing My Kitchen Cure. Mee is living proof that you can change your fate by what’s on your plate, and her recipes will help heal your gut and fight a host of autoimmune diseases. 

Mee has since forged the way for a new kind of hospitality: a fully-inclusive table where everyone can eat delicious Southern comfort classics without sacrificing taste, regardless of even the most severe food allergies or dietary restrictions – all while stressing the importance of intestinal health and how to improve your own gut microbiome. Her book shows us which foods are nutritional powerhouses and which ones we must avoid, and how to eat real food every day without breaking the bank.

Mee McCormick is a rising Southern culinary and wellness innovator, restaurateur, author, TV cooking personality, farmer, rancher, wife and mother. She splits her time between Nashville and nearby Nunnelly, Tennessee; a tiny, unincorporated community in Hickman County; home to her biodynamic farm and restaurant Pinewood Kitchen & Mercantile – that is unique in that every meal is created with the intention to serve everyone with the same deliciousness, regardless of dietary restrictions. In fact, some members of the community drive hours to get a taste of her farm-to-table cuisine and her mouthwatering Pinewood’s Grain-Free Fried Chicken!

Mee authored her first cookbook My Kitchen Cure, which led to wild success and a book deal with HCI for her second cookbook, My Pinewood Kitchen, published in April 2020. She frequently appears on Today in Nashville, and she participates in nationally-recognized food festivals and events, spreading the same level of care and hospitality to audiences everywhere that she has become known for throughout the state of Tennessee. Visit: or
