Praise For Healthyish: A Cookbook with Seriously Satisfying, Truly Simple, Good-For-You (but not too Good-For-You) Recipes for Real Life

“Take the hassle out of healthy eating with this new release from expert recipe developer Lindsay Maitland Hunt. A guilt-free guide to nutrition, Healthyish emboldens you to dine on indulgences like shakes and cookies while also showing you how to spice up your salad. Each recipe is fit for both the cooking-averse and pros.”

— Real Simple

“What if sweets could be delicious and indulgent but—wait for it—not completely ruinous? Lindsay Maitland Hunt, author of the new book Healthyish, has managed to solve this riddle. Her beyond-simple treats are perfectly portioned so you can’t overdo it, plus they come together in 10 minutes or less and taste divine.”

— Redbook

"Each recipe, presented in full color photographs, delivers on the book’s conceptual promise: flexible recipes that turn out just like the pictures and, in her words, make you “feel good, not sad.” Just what we need in January—and beyond.”

— Edible Manhattan

"A delicious and dead-simple cookbook for easy meals."

— Seventeen.com

“Diet books come and go, but the real truth is that we already know how to be healthier: eat more good stuff and less junk. The trouble, as usual, is in implementation. What Lindsay has done in Healthyish is given us a set of simple, streamlined, well-tested recipes, techniques, and ideas that are designed to fit your schedule and skill level. They’re full of the good stuff with only the occasional dollop or swirl of the junk. The best part: These recipes lead to real food. Not diet food. Not fad food. No miracle ingredients, no promises of X amount of weight lost in Y days, just great food you’ll actually feel like eating (and most importantly, you’ll feel good about eating).”

“This is THE cookbook for the modern generation. Every recipe is smart, sensible—but completely mouthwatering. Healthyish is a delight for all senses, but not the fleeting kind—you’ll be turning to this book for decades.”

— Sarah Copeland

Healthyish is a gorgeous book full of easy to execute recipes and clever, practical advice for how to cook in the world we actually live in, not just the world we want to live in. For anyone looking for clean, delicious, good-for-you eating (sans maca powder), this book is for you.”

— Alison Roman

“In Healthyish, Lindsay achieves the balance so many of us are looking for. The move toward healthier eating can seem daunting, or somehow difficult, but here there is a bolstering cheeriness on every page. Her sensible, totally doable recipes are still vibrant and all-out tempting—the Pozole with Pinto Beans and Queso Fresco is the stuff of dreams. But what’s more, Lindsay pairs those dishes with thoughtful and thorough lessons on basic framework recipes or principles, and it’s that foundation that will make the difference in so many kitchens and in the way we eat.”
