What is considered healthy changes over the years. I think now, we are finally getting somewhere though! Fast Food Chains are closing, and new fresh markets are opening in their place! We are finally realizing what healthy means!
I love healthy cookbooks – they teach me new ways to use foods that I might normally shy away from. I get inspired by recipe photos and delicious sounding recipes. There are a lot of clever authors out there! These are just a few of my favorite Healthy Cookbooks for 2017. Enjoy!
About the Book:
Cleanse your mind of all the outdated granola clichés about livin’ raw and get ready to feel good (and yes, look even better!).
Squeeze Life features more than one hundred juice and snack recipes, along with completely customizable cleanses for you to choose from. Karliin’s nutrient-packed, lip-smacking juice recipes such as “I Have a Heart-On” and “Kale the Pain Away” are bound to get your blood pumping in all the right ways. And there are snacks! “Jalapeño (Dirty) POPS,” “I Want Candy,” and “Raspberry-Chia Fruit Roll Up” are totally raw, vegan, and comforting parts of your detox. Karliin strongly believes that “diets” (ewww) don’t work, so instead she will teach you how to adopt new habits to help you live happy and healthy.
This book is unlike any other cookbook I own, and I love it! It is full of stunning (and some suggestive) photos, sassy titles, helpful information about eating clean, raw and detoxing. Of course, there are also amazing recipes – 150 of them in fact. This healthy cookbook focuses on juices, raw foods and a vegan lifestyle. Since most of my life I have focused on meat, it is a nice perspective. I am hoping to incorporate more of her ideas into my weekly meal plans!
About the Book:
In Sugar Detox, you’ll learn how your body and mind can be transformed by eliminating one toxic component from your diet—sugar. Holistic health coach Filippa Salomonsson explains how everyday problems such as low energy levels, mood swings, and even weight gain can be eradicated by removing sugar from your diet. With her three-week program, Salomonsson starts you on a life-long journey that shows you how to cleanse and purify your body of unnecessary toxins and keep sugar out of your life for good.
Recipes included in this valuable manual include:
Colorful quinoa bowl
Power loaf with avocado
Coco chia pudding
Red hot Thai curry
Beauty green smoothie
And many more!
In learning how to create and maintain a nutritionally delicious and sugar-free lifestyle, Sugar Detox teaches you how to achieve a balanced relationship with food where sugar will no longer have any power over your choices.
This book is an affordable option for a Sugar Detox book ($13.96 hardcover!). It is a diet I feel very passionate about. I think sugar is ruining lives – and I am not exaggerating! Filippa does a great job of explaining why sugar elimination is important (rather than my explanation: SUGAR IS THE DEVIL) LOL. She talks about the emotions behind the sugar, testing your sensitivity to sugar, and how to calculate how much you really consume. She does a great job with the sugar detox program in this book. It is easy to follow with her shopping lists, tips for dealing with cravings and recipes. If you are thinking about a sugar detox, this book is a great option!
About the Book:
Cooking without gluten, dairy products, and white sugar is not only easy; the results are also dizzyingly delicious. Clean cooking is a growing trend even among people who aren’t allergic to gluten, dairy products, or white sugar, and it boasts the benefits of slimming you down, giving you more energy, packing your body with nutrients, and making you feel healthier.
This gorgeously photographed and styled cookbook embodies the gastronomical mantra of clean cooking and eating, featuring Elisabeth Johansson’s wonderfully fresh smoothies and juices; alternative breakfasts and snacks; new ways of baking bread; hearty vegetarian, seafood, and meaty meals; and sweet offerings that you can enjoy without a guilty conscience. Johansson offers more than 100 recipes for whole meals down to individual sauces and dressings:
• Kombucha “sangria” and blueberry smoothie with coconut
• Gluten-free hamburgers and “zero-waist” steaks
• Carrot, parsnip, and zucchini “spaghetti” with king crab over green curry
• Carnitas, guacamole, and mango salsa
• Gluten-free scones with fig jam and “raw food” brownies
• And many more!
Packed with raw superfoods, an abundance of vegetables, and wholesome meat and seafood products, Clean Cooking will show you how to cook, eat, and feel healthy—while enjoying the entire ride there.
When I first went gluten and dairy free, I struggled to come up with recipes. Then I got better at being creative. This cookbook takes all the stress and the guesswork out of trying to cook gluten and dairy free. It is filled with unique recipes – so many that have never even crossed my mind! In the mornings, I often make the blueberry and coconut smoothie or chia seed pudding – they are both delicious recipes from this book! From breakfast, to snacks, to side dishes – all these recipes are really different than traditional cookbooks I own, very original and fresh!
The Allergy-Free Pantry: Make Your Own Staples, Snacks, and More Without Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Soy or Nuts by Colette Martin
About the Book:
After the cupboards are cleared of problem foods, most people coping with new food allergies (their own or their kids’) are missing staples they have relied on for years. And even though stores are stocking more allergen-free brands, shoppers with severe or multiple allergies can read every label and still strike out—especially if they’re after a particular craving or on a budget.
The good news for the 15 million Americans with food allergies is that classic treats and pantry staples can be made easily and affordably at home. From Colette Martin, the author of Learning to Bake Allergen-Free, comes The Allergy-Free Pantry—with over 100 recipes free of gluten and the top eight allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish), for:
- Basic staples (flour blends, non-dairy milks, egg replacers, Sandwich Bread, Biscuits, Strawberry Jam, Sunflower Seed Butter)
- Condiments and salad dressings (Flaxseed Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Ranch Dressing, Barbeque Sauce)
- Breakfast (Pancakes, Honey Blueberry Granola, Apple Oatmeal Scones)
- Crackers and cookies (Flax Crackers, Pita Chips, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles)
- Pasta, pizza, and freezer meals (Spinach Pasta, Cheesy Sauce, Shepherd’s Pie, Meatloaf)
- Desserts (Brownie Bites, Chocolate Pudding, Raspberry Fruit Roll Ups, Caramel Sauce)
Full-color photographs of every recipe and simple instructions (no advanced kitchen skills required!) make this a must-have guide to allergy-free home cooking. Refill your cupboards, and reclaim peace of mind!
I think everyone should have an allergy-friendly cookbook! Allergies are not uncommon these days! I have friends that cannot have nuts, milk, gluten, shellfish and artificial coloring! Sometimes I struggle with what to make for friends and family that have different allergies/sensitivities than I do. So, I pull out this book! It is a great resource to have for when I am hosting friends with particular allergies. It is nice to provide food for everyone – and with this healthy cookbook I can! The freezer meal section is great, because that way I can have these allergy-friendly meals on hand for anytime!
