Here we go! Month #11 of cookbook club is so my jam. It's healthy and delicious and it's balanced... its exactly what we want this time of year and it's called Healthyish!! I mean, the title alone rocks my world!
Here’s the deal if you’re new to cookbook club... each month I announce the cookbook of the month and then we can buy it, borrow it, check it out from the library and cook! Cook by yourself, invite your friends over, host your own cookbook club with the assigned book, whatever floats your boat. The idea is for us all to cook recipes from the same book in the same month. Pick one or two or three recipes. Whatever you can manage! THEN… for one of my Instagram Live posts we’ll cook a recipe from the cookbook together and you guys can tune in, share your own pics from the recipes you’ve made, share your friends photos, you name it!!
We can talk in real time about the cookbooks, what we loved about certain recipes, what you have questions about, what worked, what didn’t…. the whole nine yards. And then we do it all over again next month. Fun, right? We get to virtually eat our way through a different cookbook every single month. I’m so jazzed about this idea and I hope you will be too. So let’s get round 11 rolling!
Healthyish, by Lindsay Maitland Hunt, is packed to the brim with all sorts of incredible recipes that you can make at home for breakfast, lunch dinner AND dessert - and they are all healthy-ish! So brilliant right. It's perfect for anyone on the move or if you work long hours and just want to eat a bit more healthy! Healthyish has 131 recipes with straightforward instructions that never use a billion pots and pans, and all the ingredients won’t break the bank plus they can be found at your everyday grocery store (no ordering anything online here).
A few stand outs are - this Salty Watermelon, Feta, Mint and Avocado Salad that I cannot wait to make once watermelon season gets here!
All sorts of healthy dips and snacks
Brown Rice and Adzuki Bean Bowls. OMG how gorgeous are these!
Cheddar Corn and Scallion Muffins!! YES PLEASE
Sausage, Potato, White Bean and Kale Soup. I mean, how gorgeous is this?!
Kimchi-Fried Farro!! Yup.
Here's the link to the book on Amazon - Healthyish - if you want to have it delivered or go grab it from your local bookstore or library! I’m continuing to cook my way through this week!! Feel free to leave any comments here if you have questions.
PS…. when you make something from the book, if you post it on insta use the hashtag #WGCcookbookclub so we can see!!
