Cookbooks

Staying healthy is easier when you know exactly what you’re putting into your body. Here’s what the Healthline team likes to rustle up in the kitchen.

1. “It’s All Good” by Gwyneth Paltrow

“Gwyneth Paltrow might not be an Internet favorite, but she can cook. Her cookbook is filled with beautiful photos and personal anecdotes. It has tons of healthy and delicious recipes.”

— Isabel Spahn, Senior Editor

Favorite Recipe: Chicken Burgers, Thai Style

2. “Weeknight Gluten Free” by Kristine Kidd

“Whether you’re new to the GF world or you were gluten-free (for medical reasons) before it was a ‘thing,’ this book is a lifesaver. Part primer (stocking your pantry), all delicious (the lamb burger’s become a staple!), and all gluten-free!”

— Rachael Maier, Editorial Director

Favorite Recipe: Fish Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Lime Cream Sauce

3. “Morocco” by Jeff Koehler

“The writer traveled all over Morocco to get these recipes, and the book includes a ton of his stunning photography. There are whole sections on couscous, seafood, and desserts. And the tagines are (almost) as good as my mom’s!”

— Kareem Yasin, Editor

Favorite Recipe: Lamb Tagine with Oranges, Saffron, and Candied Orange Peel

4. “Plenty” by Yotam Ottolenghi

“It’s a really beautiful vegetarian cookbook (I’m not even a vegetarian and neither is Ottolenghi, according to the book’s introduction!). The ingredients he highlights are really diverse and a great reminder of things I would never think to use myself.”

— Casey Hollis, Assistant Editor

Favorite Recipe: Shakshuka

5. “Giada at Home” by Giada de Laurentiis

“Food Network star Giada de Laurentiis first inspired me to get into the kitchen and to try new recipes. Her Italian-Californian fusion cookbook is the most stained, dog-eared book on my shelf. Giada's recipe for vegetable parmesan has become a family winter staple.”

— Mary Baucom, Editor

Favorite Recipe: Lemon and Almond Biscotti Dipped in White Chocolate

6. “The Oh She Glows Cookbook” by Angela Liddon

“I was so excited when my favorite blogger wrote a cookbook! Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows always offers a ton of great vegan recipe ideas on her blog, but even non-vegans will appreciate the healthy and delicious plant-based meal ideas found in the book.”

— Jane Chertoff, Assistant Editor

Favorite Recipe: Empowered Noodle Bowl with Orange-Maple Miso Dressing

7. “Barefoot Contessa in Paris” by Ina Garten

“Her recipes are relatively easy and quite tasty. Probably not great for dieters, but you can’t have it all.”

— David Mills, Associate Editor

Favorite Recipe: Lemon Chicken with Croutons

Find it here.

8. “Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook” by America’s Test Kitchen

“When I was growing up, my mom had this cookbook. I love it because the illustrations give it a unique and classic vibe, but most importantly, because it has great recipes — a plateful of nostalgia and great food!”

— Isabel Spahn, Senior Editor

Favorite Recipe: Baked Alaska

9. “Barefoot Contessa at Home” by Ina Garten

“Ina Garten has inspired my cooking and general life philosophy: Store bought is always fine. The stuffed cabbage recipe from this book is also fine.”

—Ariana Espiritu, Assistant Editor

Favorite Recipe: Beatty’s Chocolate Cake

Find it here.

10. “One Pan, Two Plates” by Carla Snyder

“Most recipes are geared towards parties of four or more, so cooking for one can take more math than baking. To halve or not to halve? Quarter? Will they start selling half lemons, already? Not to mention the colossal kitchen mess you’re left with. This book has easy, small-batch recipes with easier cleanup!”

— Rachael Maier, Editorial Director

Favorite Recipe: Turkey Chili with Poblano and Queso Fresco
