Determined to give yourself a health overhaul this year? With wholesome food stores and cafés popping up by the hundreds, healthy eating should (in theory) be easier than ever before.
That said, we all know it’s not always that straightforward. However, having a few cookbooks to hand to boost motivation and provide a little extra inspiration, will mean that those good intentions are more likely to remain intact for longer. Here are four you’ll find on our kitchen shelves…
Eat healthily, even at work
Lunch: the often-forgotten middleman between breakfast and dinner. With the pressures of everyday life, it often amounts to no more than a convenient and speedy Prêt sandwich, hastily eaten at your desk. The Little Book of Lunch will inspire you to start embracing lunch through its quick and healthy ideas for the time-poor person to take to work with them.
Detox your diet
Whether you want to lose weight, achieve clearer skin, have more energy or sleep better, this book includes over 200 ideas targeted to individual health needs, making it much more than just a recipe book. Plus, thanks to the author’s use of herbs, spices and oils, you won’t need to compromise on flavour, either.
Start the day on the right foot
Thought porridge was boring? With over 50 recipes, taking inspiration from around the world, Anni Kravi’s Porridge will force you to think again. Using oats, quinoa, amaranth, raw buckwheat, bulgur wheat and other healthy whole grains, the porridge rule book is thrown out of the window, creating hearty bowl-food that will transform the way you eat breakfast forever.
Healthy eating doesn’t mean going hungry
It’s well known that diets are usually only a short-term fix because the level of restriction required is never sustainable long-term. With her book, Eat Better Not Less, Nadia Damaso proves that, by eating the right things and swapping those refined ingredients out with natural alternatives, you can look and feel fantastic without sacrificing on flavour, or feeling like you’re going without.
