5-healthy-cookbooks-will-leave-wanting-seconds

When it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle and losing weight, your diet should be the number one thing you’re focusing on. But eating salad and plain chicken all the time gets so boring. And sad. You want to be excited by your food! And what better way to do this than by letting others do the work for you?

These cookbooks all offer delicious meal ideas that will leave you feeling more than satisfied. With a variety of options, you’ll be able to easily spice up your meals. Side note – these cookbooks also make for the perfect gift during the holiday season! I know that healthy cookbooks are always on my list.

SkinnyTaste – Focusing on easy and flavorful meals, SkinnyTaste takes your favorite meals and “skinny-fies” them. One of the best parts of this cookbook is that you’ll find all of the nutritional information included in each recipe. So you can say goodbye to calorie guesswork. One of my personal favorites is her skinny chicken enchiladas. They’re amazing!

Spiralize and Thrive – Looking for low carb options? These recipes offer made-from-scratch meals that will make your mouth water while substituting high carb food for low carb vegetables. All you need is a spiralizer and this cookbook, and all of your meals are ready to go.

Thug Kitchen – The one thing about healthy cookbooks is that they can be a little bit daunting. Especially for beginner chefs. Thankfully you don’t have to worry about that with Thug Kitchen. Not only do they provide tons of recipes but they also teach you different techniques in a super easy to understand way. This cookbook does have a lot of swearing in it, so just keep that in mind if purchasing for yourself or somebody else.

The First Mess Cookbook – You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy trying the different vegan recipes offered in The First Mess Cookbook. These easy to prepare seasonal recipes are the perfect pick for any meal of the day. Take a chance on this plant-based cookbook and all of your friends will be asking when they can come over for dinner.

Healthy Cookbook for Two – Offering tips on proportions, grocery shopping, and meal planning (alongside their 175 recipes), this is an ideal cookbook for you and your special someone. Like SkinnyTaste, this cookbook also offers detailed nutritional information. Let them help you take the guesswork out of cooking for two!

All in all, it doesn’t matter what cookbook you decide to go with. You’re guaranteed amazing recipes that will leave you feeling great with all of them!

      They make healthy cooking so easy. The biggest thing for me is not having any ideas and falling back on what’s easy (eating out, pasta, a big bowl of cereal) but with these around that’s never an issue 🙂

      I always have the intention to eat healthy, but as soon as winter hits my body goes into hibernation mode and I just want to eat all of the food! So it’s a struggle, lol. Thug Kitchen is amazing though and helps a lot!

    I’ve heard Thug Kitchen is fantastic- have you made many of the recipes from it?? It’s on my “maybe” list for cookbooks!

      Yeah – I’ve made a couple of things from it. It’s nice because it gets you cooking with flavors and food that you normally wouldn’t. I love trying out new things and this cookbook is really helpful with that!

      Me too! My SO is the cook in the relationship so I usually just kind of watch, grab things for him, or chop things 😉

    I need these recipe books! I love food and always end up cooking not-so-healthy dishes.

      Why do not so healthy dishes always have to taste so good though? 😉
