If you love cooking and getting messy in the kitchen, you’ll know that it’s not always easy to keep your cooking healthy. While delicious veggies can be fun to make, sometimes conjuring up a hearty stew with dumplings or a cheese-laden cannelloni is just more fun.
Fortunately, it’s now never been more inspiring to eat healthily. A slew of healthy eating recipe books have hit the shelves in recent years, packing in tonnes of delicious ideas which do us much more good than harm. Time to say goodbye to steak and chip dinners and hello to lean, clean cuisine in your kitchen…

Her spicy salmon with cucumber and yoghurt is pure yum.
