An Interview with Cookbook Author Anna Vocino

I have to admit, Shannon and I were not in the best physical condition while recording this week’s Addicted to Fitness podcast. We had just returned from the One Love. One Pulse. charity yoga event. As far as charity events go, this was the most intense one we had ever been to. Two other ETT members, Adrien and Casey, joined Shannon and I as we performed nearly two hours of continuous sun salutations, and if you don’t know what a sun salutation is, please check out the video below. As physically demanding as it was, I was extremely happy that ETT was able to contribute to such a worthy cause. I was also extremely happy that the majority of this week’s episode consisted of an interview with cookbook author Anna Vocino.

Anna has wide range of expertise. She’s and actress, stand-up comedian, podcaster and cookbook author. During the interview, she explains how her Celiac disease diagnosis in 2002 lead to her creating a multitude of delicious recipes that contain little to no sugar, grains and/or gluten. We also discuss the best way to influence others to eat healthy and Anna gives out one of her favorite recipes from her cookbook Eat Happy. You can hear more from Anna on the Celebrity Fitness Trainer podcast with Vinnie Tortorich and get more of her recipes at The digital version of Eat Happy will be available for purchase August 16th, but you can pre-order it today on Amazon.
