Food: My Favourite Healthy Recipe Books


I love curling up on the sofa and looking through my recipe books. My book buying habits have changed a lot since the Kindle arrived a few years ago and so it's rare that I buy actual books, however I love to have a good stash of recipe books in the house, if only for how pretty they look on a shelf!

Here are three of my favourite 'healthy' cookbooks; Get The Glow by Madeleine Shaw, Deliciously Ella Every Day and Eat.Nourish.Glow by Amelia Freer. 

Deliciously Ella Every Day is Ella's second book and is just as fantastic as the first. It's filled with plant-based, gluten-free and dairy-free recipes divided into sections such as breakfast, easy weekday dinners, batch cooking and of course, smoothies. I love Ella's recipes and have made so many of them - there are some ingredients that you wouldn't usually have in the house (like tahini and apple cider vinegar) but once you have them they will last you ages and they pop up in lots of recipes.

Eat.Nourish.Glow is by Amelia Freer who is nutritionist to lots of celebrity clients. This first book explains her 10 steps for losing weight, looking younger and feeling healthier. This is far more of a text heavy book but it's so interesting and divided into the 10 steps which makes it feel far more manageable! There are a handful of great recipes at the back of the book too. 

Get The Glow is popular blogger, Madeleine Shaw's first book. The first part shares her six-week plan for how to 'get the glow' and to help you ditch the sugar and junk foods, and the second section includes 100 brilliant recipes which are all simple to follow. I like how lots of her recipes include meat as I tend to find that most 'healthy' eating books are focused on a vegan or vegetarian diet. The book is beautifully illustrated too.

I hope you find this useful and do let me know which healthy recipe books you recommend as I'm always on the lookout for new ones!
