Anna Vocino is an actress, standup comedian and co-host on America’s Angriest Trainer Podcast with Vinnie Tortorich. She has a fabulous cookbook called Eat Happy, with gluten-free, grain-free and low-carb recipes, which was largely inspired by the diet changes she made after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

On this show we discuss:

  • Anna’s story of finding out she had celiac disease and how it changed her life and how she ate.
  • Taking a more functional approach to her condition and making diet changes to get her health back.
  • Transitioning to gluten-free.
  • Making gluten-free healthy not just another processed-food junk diet.
  • It’s not just gluten, but dairy that is a big offender in athletes and those with autoimmune conditions.
  • Dairy-free cheese options.
  • Vinnie’s Fitness Confidential book.
  • When Anna hooked up with Vinnie on the podcast she was inspired to go a step further and adopt a “no sugar no grains” (NSNG) diet, and discusses how this helped her further, especially in managing autoimmune flareups.
  • Making healthy, clean eating enjoyable for the whole family.
  • The recipes in Eat Happy are a great resource for athletes looking to clean up their diets or those who have gut issues like you.
  • The inspiration to write a cookbook and why it’s no easy feat.
  • Including desserts with low amounts of natural sugars – moderation!
  • Real sugars vs sugar substitutes.
  • And much more!
