HAPPY BOOK RELEASE DAY TO CASSY FROM FED & FIT!!!! Yes, it’s a huge day for her because her first book has officially released and is now available for anyone to purchase and enjoy! Cassy’s book, Fed & Fit: A 28 Day Food & Fitness Plan to Jump-Start Your Life with Over 175 Squeaky-Clean Paleo Recipes, is a beautiful giant 400 page book that is a customized healthy lifestyle design how-to (with a big bank of supporting recipes and workouts) to help people begin to confidently design a lifestyle built upon powerful, introspective, customized lessons learned.

Panang Curry + Fed & Fit 28 Day Food & Fitness Guide Book Review on PaleOMG

In Cassy’s book, she starts off by talking about the four pillars of health:

  1. Mindset
  2. Sleep & Hydration
  3. Food
  4. Fitness

By breaking down each of these four pillars into a bird’s eye view of priorities, education, and actionable tips, you are able to begin to see how you prioritize your own pillars and how you can improve them!

Panang Curry + Fed & Fit 28 Day Food & Fitness Guide Book Review on PaleOMG

After really breaking down those four pillars and explaining why all four are so important, she then gives you 175+ recipes! Cassy’s recipes are incredibly healthy and delicious and free from grains, most dairy, legumes, refined sugars, natural sweeteners (the book only uses fruit), and flours (all kinds). There are no baked goods in the book. She put a ton of thought into these recipes. Here’s what you’ll get:

  1. Simple Meals! An entire chapter dedicated to “simple meal components” with recipes for proteins, vegetables, and veggie-based starches that are 5 ingredients and 5 steps or less.
  2. Dietary Considerations! Program compliance tags and modifications (where applicable) for GAPS, low -FODMAP, AIP, egg-free, and nut-free.
  3. Nutrition Facts! Approximate nutrition facts that span calories, protein, carbohydrates, and fat content broken down by serving.

I’ve stayed with Cassy, trying a handful of her recipes made by HER and I’ve made several from the book and all have been delicious. She sticks with simple ingredients and simple explanations so you can quickly turn around a healthy meal in a short amount of time!

After the recipes, you’ll find The 28-Day Fed & Fit Project which includes a meal plan, weekly shopping lists, home workouts, introspective journal, and a DIY template for people who’d like to follow the Project but design their own meals and workouts!

BUT WAIT, there is still one more section to go!!! I know I know, how is that possisble? How did she fit so much into just 400 pages? I have no clue, you guys. Her brain is crazy. Anywho, last but not least, you’ll get the workouts! So here’s the thing, when Cassy was writing this book and I was actually on book tour last year, she called me up and asked me if I wanted to play a small part in the book to create the workouts for her program. Obviously I said HELL YES and began writing down all sorts of bodyweight workouts that are challenging, sweaty and little butt-kickers! The fitness section is full of an index with photo tutorials for the fitness plan, warm-up’s, and post-workout mobility. So if you’re ever confused by a term, just go to the index and you’ll have step-by-step pictures and explanations of the movement!

Cassy wanted the fitness section to be something that anyone could try while being workouts that would be challenging for someone who has been working out for quite some time. So we give you plenty of options on how to modify like push ups on the wall or on your knees or toes or even handstand push ups. The possibilities are endless so your workout routine never gets boring!

OMG, how adorable is she? Just the cutest. And you have no idea how exhausting holding a kettlebell for 30+ minutes to get one perfect photo can be. Ok wait, I’ve told you all the bullet points and all the concrete details, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty and talk about feelings. So here’s the thing, if you’ve ever seen Cassy or met her in person, the kindness and sweetness and genuine personality is no act. That is Cassy. She works harder than probably anyone I have ever met and makes sure that everything gets done while everyone feels special at the same time. She has a heart of gold. She’s been dreaming up this program for so long now and to see it finally come to life is so awesome. This woman deserves so much credit and so much support because she TRULY CARES. If you’re looking to support an amazing person who deserves it, buy book!

And you know what, it’s not JUST a book. Cassy also has The Fed Fit Project Online – We took to expand the Project via an online format! The first group (for both Project Online members and social media followers) will launch September 5th. More information available soon at! And she also created The Fed & Fit App – a FREE download! The neatest feature of the app is the integrated grocery shopping list capability. Each chapter break in the printed book includes an index of QR codes. When a reader scans a recipe code via the Fed & Fit app, the ingredients for that dish will populate an interactive shopping list. Members of The Project Online will also have mobile access to their journal via the app!

All this crazy stuff is so awesome! I have no idea how she even has time to sleep, but you know she does since it’s one of her pillars! Cassy is amazing and you can find out how awesome she is by trying this recipe from the book and then grabbing the book yourself! Right now it’s 42% off!! Her panang curry was absolutely delicious but I also loved her Asian Cabbage Rolls and Cauliflower Mac & Cheese! NOW GO GET HER BOOK!! You’re going to absolutely love!!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Awesome, can’t wait to bust out my red curry paste and try this recipe! Also stoked for the book. Love the idea of incorporating overall health/wellness/fitness into a cookbook! Is there going to be an e-book version of Fed & Fit?

  2. Hi Juli- thanks to Cassy and you for the recipe! I’ve had a Penang Curry in Penang so will have to try out Cassy’s version.

    I listened to your podcast with Cassy and just wanted to leave you a message saying thanks. I don’t have an incredible life changing story to share with you but just know that you have helped to keep my family eating healthy foods day in day out instead of getting bored of the old chicken/broccoli/rice routine.
    And for that we are so grateful.

    I’ve read your blog for about 4 years now (and have only commented a couple times), I haven’t made all 650 of your recipes but I am making a crack for it! I’ve made your double chocolate cookies so many times I don’t even need to look up the measurements and I’m pretty sure I’ve done every meatloaf recipe that you have published (my husband says the chipotle smothered bacon meatloaf is life changing). I think your recipes are always straightforward, completely delicious, and as a home cook I’m glad that I have your blog as a resource that I can trust because the recipes ALWAYS turn out. Thank you so much for putting so much effort in!

    Even though I love your recipe posts the most I think its great that your blog is evolving. I mean no one can really try 5 new recipes a week right? Let alone I don’t know how you came up with them that fast! I also really loved in your podcast with Cassy that you said you wanted people to suggest posts. I was one of the people who asked that you do a kitchenware post and to be honest I felt sorta bossy telling you what to do!

    1. awwwww thank you so much for the sweet comment!! so glad you’ve enjoyed the recipes, even while i’ve evolved over time! and guess what? i have a post planned for next week with all my favorite kitchenware!

  3. Yum! Definitely making this sometime this weekend. My Fiance and I usually make green curry, so this will be a nice change up. There is nothing better than an herbaceous bowl of curry to soothe the soul.

  4. Holy shit, Juli. This is so fucking good! My husband and I just made it tonight and it’s a contender for our favorite Thai place. (We always order chicken panang.) I’ve followed you for a while now but started following you on Snapchat earlier this year and I feel like we’re friends hahah ! This is my first time commenting so I’m going to wrap it all into one: your wedding dress = gorg. I love that you’re authentic, swearing and all. (Haters gonna hate.) Jackson is so flipping cute, I love his little personality and that you feed him leftover yogurt cups. I’m super inspired by you and you make me want to be a healthier me! I did Crossfit for 2.5 years before I had my baby in February and was once all-in for Paleo. And I just love you so much that I might just go for it again!
    Okay…that’s all. As I was typing that out I realized how creepy it is that I know all of that but whatevs hahaha. Much love to you!!! xo

  5. This book seems so positive, educational and really fun to read! I would absolutely love to check it out! And curry is my favorite food in the WORLD–Thai is the best variety!

  6. Hi Juli, thanks for the book review, I’m very interested in purchasing it. I’m hoping it will guide me and keep me on track; I fall off the paleo plan as soon as I let stress take over my life. I have not been doing very well health wise since January; I have autoimmunity & it sure has just about wrecked my life. I want my life back, so I’m starting today. Your recipes are pretty awesome, so I will be coming here often 🙂


  7. This recipe is OUTSTANDING! Even my husband could not stop raving about it. I loved how simple and quick it was as well. Keep up the great work!

  8. Just finished making this curry for dinner. Absolutely amazing. So good. A little bit of prep slicing and chopping but the end result was so worth it. Thanks for a great new favorite.

  9. Made this tonight and it’s delicious.
    I thought it should have had more sauce so I went searching and found this exact same recipe on eatthegains and she lists 2 full cans of coconut milk, yours lists 1 can, and I think that would have made a big difference. Can’t wait to make it again.
