“Eat Happy, Too,” a book of gluten free, grain free, low-carb recipes by comedian and voice actor Anna Vocino, was launched on October 1, 2019.
Though she’s a stand-up comic, eating healthy is no laughing matter to Vocino. That’s because she was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002. She struggled to manage the effects of autoimmune disease and middle age weight gain while still being able to eat delicious and satisfying foods.
In 2012, she started the “Fitness Confidential” podcast with Vinnie Tortorich and changed her way of eating. Her first cookbook, “Eat Happy: Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb Recipes for A Joyful Life,” was an Amazon bestseller, as readers ate up her 150-plus easy, low carb recipes for delicious comfort food devoid of sugars and grains.
“Eat Happy, Too” has 160 more starters, mains, sides, soups, casseroles, slow cooker and Instant Pot recipes, plus breakfast. As an added bonus, there is also a section in the book titled “Sauces, Dressings, Etc.”, which guides readers through making delicious sauces and dressings from scratch, enabling them to avoid buying chemical laden versions from the grocery store.
While she doesn’t encourage daily treats, Vocino hasn’t forgotten readers with a sweet tooth. “Eat Happy, Too” includes a dessert chapter with splurge recipes made from the finest ingredients, so when you have something to celebrate, you can do it with minimal metabolic effect on your body. While some of the dessert recipes contain dairy, Vocino was conscious of providing dairy free recipes and alternatives as well.
Vocino has voiced hundreds of commercials, cartoons, movies, promos, radio stations, and video games, which is a super cool day job to support her passion of food blogging and cookbook authoring.
Current and past clients include promo-ing comedies and late night on NBC, TGIT on ABC, CBS, Nickelodeon, Fox Sports, Cartoon Network, and The Tennis Channel, plus hundreds of TV and radio spots for clients like Subaru, Best Western, Meow Mix, Bud Light, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Target, FedEx, Pergo Flooring, and McDonald’s.
Anna is from Los Angeles and cooks for a husband, a teenage daughter, and a tiny dog.
“Eat Happy Too: 160+ New Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Carb Recipes Made from Real Foods for a Joyful Life” will be released on October 1, 2019. ISBN: 978-1945330681.
