Ten Best Clean Eating Cookbooks-
For your gift giving pleasure I have put together a list of my ten best clean eating cookbooks. You may not know this about me but I am a cookbook maniac. After I pick up my daughter from school I sit in the New York Public Library looking through stack after stack of them. I have learned over time how to pick a great book. I need gorgeous images and healthy food that is rendered in an innovative way. Always, there must be education and heart. While I favor vegan and vegetarian cookbooks, I have found many authors who produce excellent healthy food that can easily be adapted to restricted diets. Although some of the content here stretches the boundaries of Vegan, Diabetic, and Paleo, there is plenty of inspiration, and great recipes whatever your eating regime.
Plant Lab by Mathew Kenny
This book is by the famous vegan chef Mathew Kenny who together with his then girlfriend Sarma Melngailis started a raw revolution. Kenney’s life work has been his commitment to plant-based innovation as well as culinary nutrition, and in PLANTLAB he employs inventive techniques and creative thinking in dishes that are visual masterpieces as well as delectable meals. This book is as beautiful as an Rizzoli art book.
Living the Dream
Cook Beautifully by Athena Calderone
This is the debut cookbook from Athena Calderone, creator of the food blog, EyeSwoon. The food looks amazing, is beautifully plated, and all of the rooms in this book are perfection. In addition to being a talented blogger, Athena is also an accomplished interior designer. There are 100 seasonal recipes for meals as gorgeous as they are delicious.
The Local Hero
Preserving the Japanese Way by Nancy Singleton Hachisu
Preserving the Japanese Way makes me feel that I have teleported to the Japanese country side. What we would find there are the home cooked foods and fascinating cultural practices, such as setting up a cooperative with neighbors to create miso, and soy sauce, fermenting fish for several years in the backyard and how to make sake. Preserving the Japanese Way, nominated for a 2016 James Beard Award in the International Cookbook category, introduces Japanese methods of salting, pickling, and fermenting that are approachable and easy to integrate into a Western cooking repertoire.
Taco Loco: Mexican Street Food from Scratch-by
Jonas Cramby actively lives in Mexico City and loves street food. This book is imbued with the character of foods the locals eat. None of this nachos dripping with cheese business!

Jonas Cramby will teach you all the tricks to recreate these mouth-watering dishes at home, from the best recipes for antojitos (snacks), to dulces (sweets) and bebidas (drinks) .
