Bonus Recipe Photos from Everyday Detox

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure and privacy policy.

To celebrate the release of my new cookbook, Everyday Detox, I thought it might be fun to share a sneak peek at more of the recipes you’ll find in there.

When I signed this book deal nearly two years ago the only disappointing aspect was that we couldn’t squeeze photos for every. single. recipe. into the book. Of course, it is still filled with beautiful, full-color photos (done by a professional photographer, so they look much nicer than mine below!), but I personally like to see a photo of every recipe before I make it, so I thought I’d fill in the gaps by sharing additional recipe photos here below, so you can reference them when needed.

I hope they get you excited to start cooking from the new book!

buckwheat banana bread on a cutting board

Buckwheat Banana Bread. This book is loaded with mostly grain-free recipes, but I included a few of my favorite psuedograins, like buckwheat and quinoa, too. This vegan quick bread can be made with store-bought buckwheat flour (which is what I used in the loaf above) or you can grind your own raw buckwheat groats for a loaf that is lighter in color.

banana coconut muffins

Banana Coconut Muffins. I love these muffins because they are grain-free, egg-free, and naturally sweetened with only fruit. They are the first muffin my son ever tasted, and they’re still one of his favorites! (Mine, too.)

no-bake coconut granola bars stacked

No-Bake Coconut Granola Bars. These snack bars are nut-free and can be stored at room temperature without getting soft, so they’re perfect for snacking on the go!

cinnamon raisin snack bars stacked

Cinnamon Raisin Snack Bars. These bars taste like a cinnamon raisin cookie, without the flour or added sugar. They may not look like much, but they are downright addictive!

falafel wraps on a plate

Raw Falafel Wraps. Traditional falafel is deep-fried, but this version is light and hydrating with all of the flavors you love. Perfect for packed lunches or a portable snack!

thai-style lettuce wraps

Thai-Style Lettuce Wraps. These were inspired by the popular lettuce wraps from P.F. Chang’s, and this vegetarian version tastes just as delicious, while also being oil-free.

chinese cabbage salad in a bowl

Chinese Cabbage Salad. This salad was inspired by a local LA restaurant called Take A Bao. Their cabbage salad is deliciously addictive, and I needed to make a version at home so we weren’t tempted to eat there too often! My version is slightly less sweet than theirs, and can easily be made ahead of time for a convenient lunch or weeknight dinner.

quinoa tabouli in a bowl

Quinoa Tabouli. This protein-packed dish can be made ahead of time for a convenient and delicious packed lunch option all week long.

beef and broccoli in a bowl with rice

“Beef” & Broccoli. This dish was one of my childhood favorites, and my plant-based alternative tastes even better than the take-out version! I made a point of not using any special thickeners, like arrowroot, in this cookbook, so I think you’ll be happily surprised by how easy this recipe is to prepare.

cauliflower gratin in a pan

Cauliflower Gratin. A lighter alternative to the traditional potato version, this recipe is free of starches and flour thickeners. It almost reminds me of a veggie-based Mac n’ Cheese!

enchilada stuffed cabbage rolls

Enchilada Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. These “enchiladas” are warm and comforting, and so flavorful that you won’t miss the cheese. (Though you’re welcome to add it, if you like!)

cheesy jalapeno casserole in a pot

Cheesy Jalapeno Casserole. This dish is vegetarian comfort food at its best. I combined the concept of a cheesy hash brown casserole with a jalapeño popper to create one delicious casserole!

dark chocolate pudding in small glass cups

Dark Chocolate Pudding. If you love chocolate pudding, you’ll LOVE this perfected dairy-free recipe. Everyone who tries it goes back for seconds– and they never guess the “secret” ingredient.

double chocolate brownies

Double Chocolate Brownies. These brownies are made with coconut flour, but are unbelievably moist! Make sure you wait for them to cool completely before cutting, as they are easier to cut and taste best at room temperature, with chunks of dark chocolate in each bite!

almond butter freezer fudge

Almond Butter Freezer Fudge. This recipe is already a fan-favorite here on the blog, but I perfect the recipe in the book to fit a standard-sized pan, so it turns out perfect for your family every time!

peppermint fudge bars

Peppermint Fudge Bars. I think this is my favorite dessert recipe in the book. I created them for Christmas two years ago, and they will be a staple in my household from now on!

no-bake chocolate macaroons

No-Bake Chocolate Macaroons. These cookies are quick and easy to prepare, and last indefinitely when stored in the freezer– I have some in mine right now! They’re the perfect bite-sized way to naturally satisfy your sweet tooth.

chocolate cupcakes with maple buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream. I wanted this cookbook to be a go-to resource for your everyday recipe needs, so I felt that it was my duty to provide you with the PERFECT chocolate and vanilla cake recipes. I think I succeeded! These chocolate cupcakes are light and fluffy, just like a traditional cupcake, with a delicious chocolate flavor, and they are extra decadent when topped with this maple buttercream. (There’s a recipe for chocolate frosting in the book, too– and both recipes can sit out at room temperature!)

Megan, first of all your picture looks gorgeous. Wow! The recipes sound amazing! When I finally get the cookbook, I think I will be going crazy like a kid on Christmas morning! The enchilada stuffed cabbage rolls sound really good. My husband will love the jalapeño casserole. I always love your recipes. I do not come from a family that does your clean eating cooking. They tease me all the time, but I’m the one that has stayed the same since high school, and I’m 42! I think you have found the perfect way to fight off a slowing metabolism due to age. By the way, I made your scalloped potatoes from the bonus gift.
They were awsome. My kids even asked for seconds. Of course, little do they know that the potatoes were covered in cauliflower!

    Megan Gilmore

    Thanks, Christine! I’m so glad to hear your family is enjoying the recipes! 🙂

Alexa Hampton

    Megan Gilmore

    Thanks for the kind words, Sandra! I think the secret is that I’m a lazy cook– ha!– so the recipes have to be simple or I won’t make them myself. 😉

I saw your book featured on and had to check out your website. Everything looks amazing!

    Megan Gilmore

    Thanks for checking it out, Amy! Glad you found me!


My cookbook just arrived a few days ago. I was surprised to receive it that quickly as I didn’t think it was released in Canada yet? I live in Ontario, Canada. I’m so excited to use it!! The recipes and photographs look fantastic. I visit your blog daily and am a huge fan of your recipes. Congratulations! Thank you for your amazing recipes and inspiration!!

    Megan Gilmore

    Wow, that’s amazing!! I hope you enjoy the new book!



I have yet to try one of your recipes that I haven’t absolutely loved! Can’t wait till your cookbook arrives!

    Megan Gilmore

    That’s so great to hear! I hope you love the new recipes, too!


OMG, I CAN’T WAIT to get my book!!!! These recipes look fabulous!!!


Hello Megan

I just find out about your web site last week, could not wait to get on the computer to order your book.
I am looking forward to try all these good recipe , I try your banana ice scream, simply delicious. I cannot used any more chemical in my diet.


I nearly cried (tears of joy, of course) when I got the e-mail notification that my book has been shipped! Can’t wait to try all of the recipes. My husband, kids and I haven’t tried a Detoxinista recipe we didn’t like.

    Megan Gilmore

    Aw, thanks Jeannie. I think I might cry, too, when I see it in stores today! I hope you and your family enjoy the new recipes!


Megan, I am in love with your cookbook! I am also a holistic nutritionist and it is like I am reading a good novel whenever I sit down to read it:) Love these extra pictures to go with it!

    Megan Gilmore

    Oh, thank you so much! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it!


Love ur book. Got it yesterday. Followed ur blog for years. Anyway I know you’ve posted about some of ur favorite recipes to freeze before. Can u possibly entertain the idea of having a post about what from book or qualities in food make something freezer friendly or not? Again. Love the book. Big fan of yours.


I just bought your book on amazon, How i can get access ot the extra bonus thanks 🙂


so happy to have your book. The first recipe we made was chocolate chia shake. Then i made the mushroom gravy, which i used to flavor my buckwheat risotto. Today we are going to make the strawberry sorbet. Love your easy to make recipes as always.


Megan, I made your chocolate cup cakes with the maple buttercream icing. They were a big hit with the kids. My girls claim they do not like sweet potatoes. They used to eat them until they found out none of their friends like them! After trying the icing, my daughter asked if it was made with cream. I told her it is a new kind of cream! Who would ever think a sweet potato would make such a creamy tasting icing? Giada has nothing on you! In 5 days, I have made
10 of the recipes, and they all have been fabulous.

    Megan Gilmore

    Ah, that’s so great to hear!! I’m glad you and your girls are enjoying the recipes so far. 🙂


Hi Megan,

I have just received my pre-ordered copy in Australia and can’t wait to get started. I missed the additional recipes you offered for pre-ordered books. Is there any chance I can get a copy please?

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipes. I have made several recipes from your website and have been delighted each and every time.




Congratulations, Megan!
I love your recipes so much, I pre-ordered your book months ago on Kindle but when I got it, I realized I also needed the paperback! I’m so glad to have both! Your recipes are always easy and delicious! Good job!

    Megan Gilmore

    That’s so kind of you! I’m glad you’re enjoying the cookbook so far! 🙂


Hi Megan – I love the cookbook and bonus recipes!! So far I have made the chocolate superfood shake (I make several times a week), mushroom stroganoff(my 15mo old really likes the mushroom sauce on his food), and the almond butter freezer fudge. You mentioned the cupcake frosting can sit out at room temperature — about how long would you say? Thanks!!

    Megan Gilmore

    I probably wouldn’t leave the frosting out more than 4 hours or so, just to avoid the ingredients spoiling. And just like traditional buttercream, you should avoid serving it in very hot conditions, like in direct sunlight at an outdoor summer party– it could probably still melt if it got too warm!

Alice Watson

I love your cookbook – credit Angela Liddon and Oh She Glows for putting one of your recipes on her site and leading me to you – So glad she did!

Question about the Cinnamon Raisin Snack Bars – I used plump raisins, they made a nice ball like the recipe said they should but the bars would not hold together, the mixture was loose when I put it in the pan and the fall apart when I eat them.

Taste is great but how do I get them to stick together? Are certain raisins better then others or should they be soaked a little first to plump them or would it be OK to add a little water to the mixture if it’s not sticky enough?

Katie S.

YAY! I’m so glad I stumbled on these extra photos!! I’ve been loving your book so far – my only “complaint” was there are not enough pics. (I have a hard time wanting to make something if I can’t see a picture first). These extras are great!


Hi Megan, I love your cookbook ! It’s getting dirty grin frequent use, dirty with yummy food that is ! I made the Butternut squash pilaf and its very good and spicy but kind of watery. Is that okay ?

    Megan Gilmore

    Hmmm… I’ve never had it turn out watery, so if that happens next time I’d just leave the lid off and increase the heat until the liquid cooks off. Be sure to stir it often so that nothing sticks to the bottom and burns while the liquid evaporates.


I just found this blog here while googling cauliflower pizza crust and wanted to ask you if your cookbook was gluten free as I am allergic to gluten and seem to becoming more sensitive to other things I substitute gluten products with…so not sure what’s going on there but I wanted to see if your recipes contained gluten before purchasing your cookbook.
Thank you.

    Megan Gilmore

    Yes, the entire cookbook is gluten-free. I hope you enjoy it!


Hey Megan! I recently purchased Everyday Detoxand was looking at doing the 7 Day meal plan, is there anything you would suggest swapping for the kale lemonade? I don’t own a juicer and don’t know that I would use one enough to justify the purchase. I’m seeing if any friends or family have one I can borrow, but it would be good to have a backup. Thank you! I love both your books, and the sweet potato crackers from No Excuses Detox were a huge hit with my kids and my friend’s kids. 🙂

    Megan Gilmore

    Awesome! I would just swap it for a serving of one of the smoothies in the book, or even just some fruit for something light, yet nourishing. Let me know how it goes!
