The first step in eating well is cooking for yourself. I enjoy cooking for the most part. I’ve made excuses in the past about being too busy. Truth is I don’t often have a plan to cook. Last year, I started off the year living a vegan lifestyle. Learning and having the discipline to be vegan needed to start at home cooking for myself. After being vegan for 3ish months, I did begin eating fish and then later meat. I think you will see from these cookbooks that I am inspired by cooking light, healthy food that is just as delicious as food you’d get while eating out. I want to enjoy the cooking experience. I didn’t count cookbooks in my 112 challenge but here are my favorite cookbooks during my year of reading 112 books:
Oh She Glows
Simple Green Smoothies
The Rawsome Vegan Cookbook
Things I love in a cookbook are: amazing photos to inspire me while I’m cooking, easy instructions, and lots of options in recipes. The book I’ve probably used the most is Simple Green Smoothies (technically not a “cook” book). I also get inspiration to alter the recipes in these books to make other things. If you are looking to cook more healthy, delicious foods in the new year, I encourage you to give one of these cookbooks a look.
