Healthyish by Lindsay Maitland Hunt

Lindsay Maitland Hunt isn’t a mainstream celebrity, but she’s certainly well known throughout the food community. After graduating from the French Culinary Institute in New York City, she became a recipe developer and food writer, and she’s spent years writing about food for websites like BuzzFeed, Country Living, Delish.com, Food Network, and Food & Wine.

Last year, Hunt took her knowledge of food and published Healthyisha cookbook packed with good-for-you (but not too-good-for-you) recipes that anyone can utilize. Healthyish contains a total of 131 recipes with easy instructions, minimal cookware requirements, and cheap ingredients. And all of these recipes are intended for busy students or workers pressed on time.

Like many of the other cookbooks on this list, Healthyish walks the line between restrictive dieting and overindulgence, attempting to offer readers a balanced diet that’s both good for them and enjoyable. Banana-Avocado Chai Shakes, Peanut Butter Granola, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are just a few guilt-free items in Hunt’s reservoir.

Deemed an “everyday kitchen essential” in its synopsis, Healthyish is one of those cookbooks that both beginner cooks and experienced chefs can take advantage of. Part of its draw is that it’s accessible to everyone, simplifying the cooking process as much as possible. So, whether you’re a lazy cook, a busy one, or one looking to improve your skills, Hunt’s meals will work for you.

And of course, if you find yourself loving everything about Healthyish, Hunt has plenty more cooking and health advice waiting for you on her blog.
