My 5 Favourite Healthy Recipe Books

I love recipe books. I almost have an obsession with them. I'm a sucker for a book with a nice spine and have already filled a shelf in my bedroom with all different types of recipe books. Most of my books were cake related and if this post goes down well perhaps I will list my top 5 cake recipe books! These are in no particular order.

Top 5 Healthy Recipe Books

The first recipe book with a healthy theme to it that I bought was the Deliciously Ella book. After being a huge fan of her blog and the healthy recipes on there, I had to get the book. It's written similarly to her blog and the photo's are laid out really nicely. The recipes are all plant based which I am happy with but I can't imagine serving a meat free meal up to my carnivorous family. I've tried the baked beans and the energy balls so far. I would love to try more but it's quite expensive to get all of the ingredients. I'm looking forward to book two!

My most recent purchase was the I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook by Sarah Wilson. I flicked through this in a book shop and thought the recipes looked really good and a great way of reducing sugar in my meals. The bacon and egg muffins are amazing. I haven't tried much else but I am hoping to start cutting down on sugar so this will come in handy.

I also recently got Get The Glow by Madeleine Shaw. I was also a fan of her blog before I got this book and although these recipes are also really healthy, the ingredients are a bit more readily available and there are plenty of meat dishes to please everyone. There is so much I want to try, I have practically put tabs in half of the book. This fish recipe looks really delicious and simple to do and I think this will be my first experiment!

My boyfriend bought me this book for my birthday and it's the Sainsbury's Healthy Recipe Collection. This is great because I know all of the ingredients are readily available at Sainsbury's right around the corner. I can also adapt these recipes to my Slimming World plan and the majority of them are meals that everyone in the family will enjoy. I've made the Turkey Koftas with rice so far!

Sainsburys Healthier Recipe Collection

The final healthy recipe book I love is the Thug Kitchen cook book. This is filled with plenty of vegan recipes and although American, it is simple enough to find the British equivalent of the ingredients in my local supermarkets. This book is not for the innocent, it is filled with swear words which I personally find hilarious and fitting. I haven't tried anything from this book yet but the pancake recipe looks amazing and I can't wait to get some ingredients to create some of these delicious mouth watering recipes.
