First come the resolutions, then the ambitiously clean meal plan. Soon after, boredom sets in and before you know it you’re back to living off sugar cookies like Christmas never happened.
To make healthy meal planning a thrill rather than a chore, commit to building a healthy cookbook collection.
Together, these eight cookbooks make modern healthy home cooking less a chore, more a thrill. We dare you not to throw Deliciouslly Ella’s messy vegan entrees or Half Baked Harvest’s roasted veggie bowls into rotation…
