5 Cookbooks With Purpose

by Guest Writer

We love cookbooks! I mean what’s not to like about having someone tell us what to cook for dinner after a long day of work, right?! The only problem is that there are so many options and choosing one isn’t always the easiest thing to do. So we thought we give you a list of our favorite cookbooks here at Eco 18. Let us know if any of your favorites made the list, if not, leave us a note and share your faves!

Eat A Little Better

  • Sam Kass worked at the White House from January 20, 2009 to December 19, 2014, and during this period served as President Barack Obama’s Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy, as Executive Director for First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, and as an Assistant Chef. So with that being said, we can assume Sam can teach us a thing or two about the way we eat. He’s all about simplifying our food while still getting all the nutrients – he also spends a large amount of his time making an impact in our communities by empowering our country to eat better.

Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients

  • Do you want to learn more about fresh sustainable ingredients? Then hurry – this is the book for you! We are all about eating organic food that’s good for us, our planet and good to the people who harvest our food.

Body Love: Live in Balance, Weigh What You Want, and Free Yourself from Food Drama Forever

  • Kelly LeVeque is changing the way we eat by focusing on what’s important and not what is trending. She comes from a science background and worked in cancer research and genetics before becoming a nutritionist. Her book is filled with lots of other incredibly useful knowledge and tips – like how to turn off your hunger hormones by giving your body the right amount of fat, fiber, greens and protein along with awesome recipes.

Cook For Syria

  • A global fundraising initiative to help children who have suffered in the Syrian war. From cookbooks to supper clubs, this book is raising vital funds for Unicef with support from the world’s top chefs, restaurants and volunteers. You can help support this cause too by hosting friends and family for a delicious dinner that gives back.

Share – The Cookbook
