[My Review]

This is a really balanced, beautifully designed book which has plenty of recipes you’d actually want to cook!
I love the vast array of (very lovely) photos accompanying most of the recipes – it’s great to have visual aids and see how something should look! – and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I really liked that the recipes are so balanced and seem to be really healthy without being boring or plain.
The ingredients aren’t ridiculous and won’t cost you a fortune, like with some other books (where I have to skip most of the recipes because they include lots of hard-to-get ingredients) and they won’t take forever to cook, either. There’s a wide range of recipes, too, from fish and meat to vegetarian and soups. There are also some really great sweet recipes for when you fancy a little treat. Though some recipes are less appealing than others, there’s bound to be something for everyone, and a lot of the recipes can be adapted to be made vegetarian without a huge amount of effort. I have tried a few of the soups and loved them – which is surprising as I never really fancy soup!
This is a great resource for anyone wanting just what the title suggests: healthyish recipes which are still really tasty!

[Rating: 4/5]

Many thanks to Abrams and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.
