Healthyish is recipe developer Lindsay Maitland Hunt's totally doable, delicious, and dead-simple cookbook, helping us to eat how we all want to eat-healthy, but with an occasional bit of decadence.

Lindsay Maitland Hunt is an expert recipe developer who has created recipes for everyone from college students to busy families to seasoned home cooks. Now, she brings her trademark skillset to her debut cookbook, Healthyish.

For anyone on the move, working long hours, and trying to eat a bit more healthfully, Healthyish offers 131 satisfying recipes with straightforward instructions, using as few pots and pans as possible, and ingredients that won't break the bank. Not to mention, you can find the ingredients at your everyday grocery store (no garam masala or acai berries here!).

Emphasizing balanced eating rather than fad diet tricks, Hunt includes guilt-free recipes for every meal of the day, from breakfast to snacks to dinner, and yes, even Healthyish treats, such as:

Banana-Avocado Chai Shake
Peanut Butter Granola
Salty Watermelon, Feta, Mint, and Avocado Salad
Miso-Butter Toast with a Nine-Minute Egg
Pozole with Pinto Beans and Queso Fresco
Spiced Chicken and Chickpea Flatbreads with Cucumber-Dill Tzatziki
Single-Serving Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie

Designed for novices and experienced cooks alike, Hunt's meticulously considered recipes offer crowd-pleasing flavor profiles and time-saving tips and tricks, and her vegetable-centric dishes, with an occasional dash of meat, dairy, and decadence, are showcased in vibrant, mouthwatering photographs.

Destined to be an everyday kitchen essential, filled with splattered and dog-eared pages, Healthyish is a call for simple ingredients, food that makes us feel good, quick prep, and even quicker cleanup, so we all can enjoy what's most important at the end of a long day: getting back to the couch.

The result: a new ethos to live by where diets give way to mostly healthy food sprinkled with a little decadence.

Her recipes for breakfast, lunch, snack time and dinner include ingredient and equipment lists that will not daunt." -- Food Network Holiday Gift Guide "There are plenty of bowls in Healthyish - all of them looking Instagram-delicious - containing avocados, grains and salads; there are good vegetarian and meat sections, and some sweet treats at the end."
