Every January, it seems like everyone I know is Whole30-ing. While I don't go to that extreme, I do feel the nudge to eat just slightly healthier, or at least add a few new meals into our rotation. It's January. It's post-holidays. It's raining and grey most days in the Pacific Northwest, and trying some new, healthy dinners sounds like just the thing to spice up January. Sharing some new to me, not sponsored finds.

My New Roots. All plant-based and gorgeous. There's a recipe for cashew cheese that I want to try in here.

Love Real Food. New, Vegetarian (easily adaptable for non-vegetarians too) and already a best seller.

Green Travels Kitchen. Reads like a beautful postcard, filled with stories. Tips for traveling with kids in the intro.

From the queen of healthy, fancy, bay area cooking, Alice Water's In the Green Kitchen. Featuring stories and techniques from chefs all over.


My Darling Lemon Thyme. Some excellent, healthy, creative desserts in here and other creative dishes. Emma has a newer book out as well.

Love & Lemons. Organized by vegetable, I love the layout of this book. Helpful for when you find yourself with a pound of asparagus and no dinner plan. The graphic design in this book is all the heart eye emjois.


Same authors as Green Kitchen Travels, this one is all smoothies. I love new smoothie ideas, especially in the winter when they can get forgotten. Green Kitchen Smoothies.
