Cassy Joy Garcia’s new cookbook is built around an easy-to-follow 28-day regimen
"All I can say is, you’re welcome. If you’re are frantically looking for ANY recipe with chocolate, I promise these will hit the spot. I like to make a big batch so that I’ve got a fudgesicle at the ready when an ice cream or chocolate craving strikes!"-Casey Joy Garcia
Chicken Caesar Salad with Potato Croutons
"Let’s get one thing straight – I don’t avoid bread because I don’t like it, I avoid it because it makes me feel sick. Sure, there are some foods (like cheesy French bread) that are hard to replicate sans grains, but croutons . . . croutons I took a stab at. This Caesar salad, which relies on a traditional dressing for added authenticity, also uses a clever oven trick I’ve picked up that turns ordinary potatoes into the perfect crouton replacement."
Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mash
"All I can say is, you’ve never had a cauliflower mash like this. The roasted garlic adds serious depth of flavor, the coconut milk provides a delectable creaminess, and the lemon juice delivers the brightness we often seek when we add sour cream to mashed potatoes. This is seriously vegetable side heaven, and I can’t wait for you to try it."-Casey Joy Garcia
Paleo Eggplant Lasagna
"Well, it looks really good, but is it worth all that effort? YES. Yes it is. Take my word for it. In fact, after you make this lasagna for the fifth time (because your family keeps requesting it), it’s not going to feel like any effort at all. With eggplant slices for “noodles,” the meaty Italian red sauce and creamy coconut milk “béchamel” make this one of the dishes I’m the most proud of in the whole entire book. Enjoy!"
Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice
"Sometimes a girl just needs a friggin’ plate of shrimp fried rice! Am I right? This dish is for you. It will squash that pesky Chinese takeout craving AND leave you feeling healthy — never met a Chinese takeout menu that could promise the same. Make it your own with extra coconut aminos or a squeeze of your favorite hot sauce."
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
"This dish is at the tippy top of my favorite foods list. In an effort to both tip my hat to tradition and find the easiest way to make Tikka Masala, I’ve blended methods here. You’ll be using high heat to bring out the roasted flavor of the spices, creating layers and a lot of depth. Then you’ll turn to the beloved slow cooker to take care of the rest. Serve it over a big bowl of either Basic Cauliflower Rice and top with jalapeños to your heart’s desire."
