I have a confession to make, I’m a bit cookbook obsessed. Jamie has realised this obsession and has made it a tradition to buy me a cookbook for either my birthday or Christmas. I love skimming through them and getting inspired. Yes, you can Google or go on Pinterest but there is just something bout opening a cookbook with amazing pictures, that the Internet just can’t beat in my eyes.
Don’t get me wrong though, I’m a Pinterester as well (you can follow me here) but I love books! That’s never going to change.
These are three of my gems. They are my healthy inspiration and I’ve learnt so much from them. They are all amazing in their own way and I couldn’t function without them now.
Deliciously Ella, Ella Woodward
As I’ve mentioned before. I decided a couple of months ago to start eating more vegan and vegetarian food. For anyone starting a similar journey or who’s considering becoming a full time vegan I think this is a great book. Ella offers lots of information and also benefits of different foods. What I love about her food that a lot of it is incredibly quick to make. Ella’s recipes are created to feed armies it feels like, a lot of her meals last as leftovers for days, which is great!
The only downfall with the book is the layout, I still don’t quite understand the logic behind it but it’s really a minor detail and I still love this book.
Nourish, Lorna Jane
The is book is from the woman who started Lorna Jane (the Australian activewear brand, love them!). It’s an incredible book with lots of inspiration, motivation, incredible recipes and colourful photos. There is definitely a hint of Asian inspiration in a lot of the recipes, which I adore (I love Asian food and flavours).
The only issue I would say is the complicated ingredients list at times but If you plan in advance it shouldn’t be a problem.
Get the Glow, Madeleine Shaw
And finally, Miss Shaw and her wonderful book “Get the Glow” is my latest addition in my healthy cookbook collection. Her book is just stunning and I love how her glowing personality shines through the book. She loves comfort food and it shows in her book with her making healthified versions of your typical comfort meals. There are dishes such as Indian curries, beef stews and a lot of veggie options as well. If you are looking for a book that has a mix of different kinds of food, this is your book.
(Ella and Madeleine are both currently working on their second books and I can’t wait to get my hands on them!)
These are all books I love and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do! xxx
