Lindsay Maitland Hunt is an expert recipe developer who has created recipes for everyone from college students to busy families to seasoned home cooks. Now, she brings her trademark skillset to her debut cookbook, Healthyish.
For anyone on the move, working long hours, and trying to eat a bit more healthfully, Healthyish offers 131 satisfying recipes with straightforward instructions, using as few pots and pans as possible, and ingredients that won’t break the bank. Not to mention, you can find the ingredients at your everyday grocery store (no garam masala or açai berries here!).
Emphasizing balanced eating rather than fad diet tricks, Hunt includes guilt-free recipes for every meal of the day, from breakfast to snacks to dinner, and yes, even Healthyish treats, such as:
- Banana–Avocado Chai Shake
- Peanut Butter Granola
- Salty Watermelon, Feta, Mint, and Avocado Salad
- Miso–Butter Toast with a Nine-Minute Egg
- Pozole with Pinto Beans and Queso Fresco
- Spiced Chicken and Chickpea Flatbreads with Cucumber–Dill Tzatziki
- Single-Serving Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie
Designed for novices and experienced cooks alike, Hunt’s meticulously considered recipes offer crowd-pleasing flavor profiles and time-saving tips and tricks, and her vegetable-centric dishes, with an occasional dash of meat, dairy, and decadence, are showcased in vibrant, mouthwatering photographs.
Destined to be an everyday kitchen essential, filled with splattered and dog-eared pages, Healthyish is a call for simple ingredients, food that makes us feel good, quick prep, and even quicker cleanup, so we all can enjoy what’s most important at the end of a long day: getting back to the couch.
This game-changing cookbook will make you rethink how you eat.
It turns out that gut health is the root of all health: A happy equilibrium in the body’s unique community of microbes promotes good health throughout the body, including a stronger immune system, better sleep, and lower stress.
Despite eating healthfully, author and recipe developer Lindsay Maitland Hunt was plagued by symptoms such as depression, fatigue, incessant itching, and joint pain—until a gut-friendly way of eating helped bring her back to a state of balance. In fact, she felt better than ever before. Out of Lindsay’s journey from sickness to health, and her extensive research, comes this practical and nourishing guide, with irresistibly delicious recipes that make you feel good too.
Dishes emphasize plant-based ingredients like vegetables, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and whole grains, along with eggs, fish, and some meat and dairy, if you like. Lindsay also walks you through integrating fermented foods into your daily life and reducing added sugar and processed foods. It’s an approach you can tailor to your own lifestyle, whether you’re vegan, gluten free, or just love to eat! Recipes cover any time you eat, from quick weeknight dinners to party-worthy treats, including:
- Seeded Almond Flour Waffles with Raspberry-Flax Smash
- Garlicky Shrimp and Quinoa “Grits”
- Special-Occasion Short Ribs with Olive Oil and Kefir Mashed Potatoes
- Parsley, Kale, and Pumpkin Seed Pesto
- Brussels Sprouts and Peanut Butter Curry Bowl
- Peanut Butter–Banana “Nice” Cream
- Plus go-to essentials (roasted vegetables, simply cooked leafy greens, sprouted grains, and more) for building meals off the cuff
Beyond the recipes, Lindsay explains what you need to know about your gut microbiota and offers smart strategies and solutions to help you navigate real life, like a new food pyramid for gut health and tips for tracking (and rewarding) healthy-living habits.
Help Yourself isn’t a fad diet, a detox, or a cleanse. It’s a common-sense approach to food, backed by science. If you’ve been living with symptoms such as allergies, chronic pain, inflammation, bloating or weight gain, exhaustion or poor sleep, acne, irritability, if you’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease—or if you just want to feel your best in your body—this book offers a pathway to wellness via the gut.
