Successful Fort Worth chef and bakery owner Catherine Ruehle says she’s asked every day how she was able to recover from rheumatoid arthritis without succumbing to toxic medications.

Now she’s aiming to help fellow sufferers put a stop to their pain the same way she did through her new digital book, Put Out the Fire! Diet & Wellness Guide, now available for $24 at The book outlines an eight-week program that will help identify and eliminate foods that trigger symptoms and offers more than 40 healthy recipes.

“It’s the cornerstone of a bigger project I’m working on,” says Ruehle, who received nutritional training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and owns a holistic health consulting business called A Well-Nourished Life. “A live eight-week online program with members-only community support, weekly videos, live webinars and cooking demos. I feel this is my mission; my way to make something good out of my health crisis.”

Ruehle is also preparing for the debut of her first cookbook, Let Us All Eat Cake: Gluten-Free Recipes for Everyone’s Favorite Cakes (Ten Speed Press, $24.99), on sale in September and available for pre-order now on

Here are two recipes from Ruehle’s new healthy-eating regimen.
