Whether or not you’re a resolutions person, we all have goals that we’d all like to achieve this year. January is nearly over (finally!) and it often seems that our new years resolutions or goals come to an end as well. For some it might be Dry January or hitting the gym three times a week or chugging that grassy green juice every morning but there’s something about the arrival of February that seems to kill our health goals and replaces them with chocolate (at least in my case!)
One thing that always helps sort me out and get my goals back on track is picking up a healthy cookbook. Not only are the photos and recipes in these books absolutely gorgeous but when spending sometimes between $30-$40 on a book, it holds you accountable to try your hardest to implement those healthier choices into your everyday life. There’s just something about seeing Gwyneth Paltrow hold a green salad that makes me want to get my sh*t together, so here I’m sharing 7 healthy cookbooks that top my list that might help you keep your 2019 goals alive as well!
Keep reading for the full list of cookbooks that’ll help keep your New Years Goals goin’!
Eat What You Love
Living with an autoimmune disease is what fuelled the fire under Danielle Walker of Against All Grains to make dietary changes to end not only her suffering but the suffering of millions of folks worldwide. In her newest book, Eat What You Love, Danielle has done the hard work for those with all types of diseases or allergies or for anyone that wants to make healthier lifestyle choices. What I love about Danielle’s book is that she re-creates classic comfort food dishes with a healthier spin so if you thought your days of fried chicken, sloppy joes and chicken pot pie were over, then think again!
