I love food blogs, but nothing motivates me to get in the kitchen more than a good cookbook. And my favorite cookbooks are ones that double as coffee table books—substantial books with gorgeous, colorful photographs and ideas that go beyond the standard chia pudding and spinach smoothie recipes that seem obligatory in healthy cookbooks these days.
These healthy cookbooks will inspire you to get in the kitchen and start cooking. And even if they don’t, well, at least you’ll have some beautiful pictures to look at!
