2016 will forever go down in my memory as the year of my “second babies.”

Around the same time I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I also signed on to write my second cookbook with Ten Speed Press. I’m so thrilled for you to get your hands on my next book, No Excuses Detox, which is now available!

What’s special about this book is that all of the recipes are developed with speed, convenience, and budget in mind. My hope is that this particular collection of recipes will leave you with “no excuse” to not eat well, because the recipes are as easy and affordable as possible, using only easily accessible whole food ingredients.

Just like my first book, all of the recipes are properly combined and labeled to accommodate those with food allergies and special dietary restrictions. All of the recipes are gluten-free and vegetarian, and I’ve included tips to make many of the meals ahead of time, either in the freezer or in a slow cooker, so that you can stay on track even when you’re super busy.

Due to popular demand, I’ve included more main dish recipes in this book, including many that can be made in just 30 minutes from start-to-finish, or with only 15 minutes of hands-on preparation. I’ve even added an entire chapter dedicated to quick skillet meals, which are perfect for speedy weeknight dinners.

I’ve taken special care to make these recipes as allergy-friendly as possible, so I think you’ll be pleased with the number of egg-free, dairy-free, and nut-free recipes found in this book. I was also raising a picky toddler at the time, so many of the recipes are kid-friendly and easy to grab on the go, like the Freezer Toaster Waffles, Sweet Potato Crackers, and Vegan Pumpkin Bread pictured below.

And because I know how challenging meal planning can be each week, No Excuses Detox has three full weeks of meal plans, including a Speedy Meal Plan featuring fast 30-minute meals and a Budget-Friendly Meal Plan that feeds you for less than $6 each day.

Each meal plan includes a complete shopping list, too, so all of the planning is done for you!

  1. Hello… do all of your recipes have pictures of the food?

    And are you planning a cookbook with meat in it? I have trouble with not eating me, I’m anemic and such

    Plus, I don’t know how to cook! and wonder if this is the best cookbook for me?

    Thanks for all you do!

    1. My third book, The Fresh & Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook, has a chapter with meat and does have photos for every single recipe. It’s probably the easiest method of cooking, too! But, you can also just start here with the recipes on my website if you’d like to try some out first. I post new recipes every week.
