One of my favourite things to do is my meal plan for the week. Call me crazy but I really enjoy flicking through my recipe books and planning the week out. If you’re looking for some awesome healthy cookbooks to help with your meal plans this post is for you!
1. Deliciously Ella
Although I’ve only had Ella Woodward’s book a few months it has really been amazing for me. I absolutely love how the recipes are so laid-back and provided little blurbs about why she included it off her blog. The is all natural, plant-based, dairy and gluten-free which is amazing for us being vegetarian now.. If you’re a big fan of meat then maybe opt for some of the other options. If you’re trying to eat more plant-based or are vegan seriously you need it!
Fave recipes: Stuffed Chestnut Mushrooms, Coconut Thai Curry with Chickpeas & Simple Oat Cookies
2.Supercharged Food Eat Clean, Green & Vegetarian
Oh. My. God. This is easily my pick from the bunch at the moment because it’s made the transition of going vegetarian so much easier. Isaac & I went through this book together to bookmark recipes we’d like to try and literally we were bookmarking every single page… Which is rare but so exciting! I think we’ve been cooking mainly from this book since going vego and literally everything is SO easy, SO delicious and I’m obsessed with it. I know Lee Holmes has a few other books so if you have tried any of those and they rock as well please let me know! Definitely a must-have if you’re wanting to eat more plant-based or a vego and after some exciting recipes.
Fave recipes: Mushroom with Red Quinoa Soup, Brown Lentil Chilli Bowl & Buckwheat Stuffed Capsicums (inspo for a recipe coming soon to the website)
3. The Oh She Glows Cookbook
One of my favourite things about going vegetarian was being able to buy a few more plant-based cookbooks guilt-free and I ended up picking up The Oh She Glows Cookbook. I’ve only had it about two weeks but already I’m really enjoying the recipes. They’re super easy to follow with simple yummy foods. I will say sometimes the ingredients list looks daunting but once you read it most of the time it’s just a whole lot of spices! I’m really enjoying working my way through this one!
Fave recipes: Creamy Avocado-Potato Salad, Long Weekend Grilled Salad & Summer Harvest Tortilla Soup (!!!!)
4. The Happy Cookbook
As I said earlier the downside to Deliciously Ella is the fact none of the recipes contain meat or fish so if you’re after something that isn’t only plant-based this is an awesome option. The Happy Cookbook is great because it’s still all dairy, sugar and gluten-free whilst still being really yummy. Since going vegetarian we don’t reach for this one as often but it’s still hands down one of the best cookbooks I’ve owned/read. This one also contains a crazy amount of sweet treats as well so if you’re really struggling to find recipes for snacks or treats I’d recommend this one.
Fave recipes: Salmon Patties with Mashed Avo, Pulled Pork Tacos, Spicy Pepita Kale & Buckwheat Salad
