My brain changed when I changed the way that I ate. Fat will stabilize your brain and it's a very nice thing; especially if you're subject to blood sugar swings and moods. - Anna Vocino

Join us on Wellness Force Radio 155 as mother, comedian, actor, voice over artist, best selling author of Eat Happy and the upcoming Eat Happy, Too, as well as the Co-Host of the top iTunes Health and Fitness podcast, Fitness Confidential with Vinnie Tortorich, Anna Vocino, shares how eating healthy can be enjoyable. Anna, who is Celiac and has been gluten free since 2002, discusses how she was able to begin following a healthy diet while also eating delicious foods to help heal her body and stay strong.
Discover why the phrase, "If you have your health, then you have everything," is true on so many levels. The weight loss will come, but if that's your only focus, then the real health benefits will be harder to find.
154 delicious grain-free, gluten-free recipes that are also free of any processed sugars. There are meats, fish, sides, soups, starters, casseroles, slow cooker recipes, breakfast dishes, and even desserts to satisfy any sweets craving you might have, all with virtually no sugar. If you are low carb, paleo, are wanting to keep autoimmune issues at bay, or just want to lose extra weight, Eat Happy gives you comfort food where you won’t miss the sugars or grains so your body and brain can feel happy from eating real foods.
In 2012, after almost ten years of being gluten free due to celiac, Anna Vocino found she was gaining weight faster than a tick on a labradoodle. Turns out the culprit wasn’t overeating or too much fat in the diet, but the pesky sugars and grains in all those gluten free comfort foods. When Anna started podcasting with Fitness Confidential author Vinnie Tortorich, she adapted her entire way of eating to do what Tortorich coined: NSNG—No Sugars No Grains. Sure enough, the weight dropped off, the inflammation due to celiac finally calmed down, and for the first time in her life, she learned what it meant to be truly happy about food.
All of Anna’s recipes are delicious, easy to make, and so satisfying, you won’t even know you’re eating healthy. Craving rich, decadent chocolate pots with fresh cream that are delicious but not fattening? Wanna make a grain-free pizza crust that actually helps you lose weight? Dying for pancakes, but you’ve committed to avoiding carbs? How about hearty shepherd’s pie, tater tots, sizzling ginger rice, all made with cauliflower instead of high carb rice and potatoes? Eat Happy offers low carb comfort foods to please the entire family.
Want more amazing, healthy recipes? Anna will be releasing her next cookbook, Eat Happy, Too: More Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb Recipes Made from Real Foods for a Joyful Life on April 1, 2018.
"The idea of 'letting go of weight' has always been a vanity trigger for me. The real benefits are the health benefits and being happier by stabilizing my brain. Losing weight is everything to people, but it's really not. Losing the weight is the second benefit that comes after enjoying life more." - Anna Vocino
"When I get emotionally involved, I just want to munch on something like almonds to help me deal with my feelings. That helps me calm down, but then I still have to isolate and deal with the emotional matter on its own." - Anna Vocino
"Eat Happy is a recipe book that is intended to include really yummy food that is easy to make at home. Whether you are gluten free, low-carb, or grain free, it's for everyone." - Anna Vocino
"Take things easy and be nicer to yourself if you go ahead and have a treat like gluten-free cookies. We have a tendency to want to beat ourselves up about our choices, but we need to calm down. If you beat yourself up too often, you're just going to end up binge eating because you're so emotionally involved about your food choices. " - Anna Vocino
"Don't forget to increase your healthy fat intake if you decide to follow the No Sugars, No Grains lifestyle. People don't eat enough fat with NSNG because they're afraid they'll gain weight and then they complain about being hungry. Don't be afraid of fat; you have to get full by eating fats." - Anna Vocino
