No Excuses Detox is just as exciting as her first cookbook and the recipes are just as creative and delicious. Megan proves that creating healthy meals for yourself and your family doesn’t have to be difficult. She offers tons of great recipe to make sure your family doesn’t keep eating the same things over and over – a trap that’s easy to fall into when you’re trying to eat healthy.
But let’s be honest – you can only eat so many grilled chicken salads and vegetable soup before you start to lose your inspiration. That’s when fried potatoes, greasy “head-sized” cheeseburgers, and pizzas topped with everything in the refrigerator start to look good. This collection of recipes keeps you from getting to this point and (this part I really love) the results are far more delicious than the less-healthy options.
The book includes Megan’s great advice on substitutions, time-saving tips, meal plans, and even a “Beginner Five-Day Shopping List.”
Do you feel all of those excuses slipping away???
From Everyday Detox author Megan Gilmore, powerhouse blogger behind Detoxinista.com, here are 100 quick-to-prepare, affordable, and delicious whole-food recipes that make it easy to follow a healthy lifestyle for you and your family every day.
In No Excuses Detox, Megan Gilmore presents a collection of satisfying, family-friendly recipes developed with speed, convenience, and optimum digestion in mind. Because enjoying what you eat on a daily basis is crucial to maintaining health goals, these recipes for comfort food favorites–from Freezer Oat Waffles, Butternut Mac n’ Cheese, Quinoa Pizza, Loaded Nacho Dip, and Avocado Caesar Salad to Frosty Chocolate Shakes, No-Bake Brownie Bites, and Carrot Cake Cupcakes—taste just as good as their traditional counterparts, but are healthier versions packed with nutrients. Megan Gilmore sharply identifies many of the reasons people fail to stick to a healthy diet—too busy, budget conscious, cooking for picky eaters, concerns about taste or fullness, and more—addressing them head on and offering simple solutions. This beautifully packaged and artfully photographed book gives readers no excuse to not eat well year-round.

The average person gives the following excuses for not cooking and eating healthier meals:
- “The food doesn’t taste as good.”
- “My family won’t eat it!”
- “I’m too busy to cook.”
- “It’s too expensive to eat healthy food.”
Basically, this cookbook addresses (and obliterates) these concerns and leaves us all with… you guessed it No More Excuses! Each excuse is taken, individually, and the author offers great advice… from someone who knows because she has been there.
You can find No Excuses Detox on Amazon. The paperback version (the one I was sent in exchange for telling you all about it) is actually available right now for nearly $10 off the list price! It’s even cheaper than the Kindle version.
