When trying to gain control of your health, you have got to eat well. In order to do that, you need to eat most meals at home. When eating out, you often don’t know the ingredients or the cooking methods. Therefore, it’s nearly impossible to eat the best when eating away from home. One way to maximize healthy meals is to plan your at home meals utilizing cookbooks. Unless you’re a trained chef, you’re probably not going to be able to create amazing, healthy meals on your own. I’ve listed my favorite (for now!) cookbooks below.
This book is easy to use and I feel good about what I’m eating. The ingredients are fresh and often times organic. The lists keep you organized and allow you to plan efficiently. Find more of Melissa’s amazing Fresh recipes here.
I love this book for when I’m training for a run. You know exactly how to plan for the type of meal your body needs. A bonus is the pancake batter and topping ideas!

This book offers a great way to educate yourself and your family about the foods they are eating. It’s a good teaching tool to pull out at the dinner table when serving the meal.
