New year, new food resolution. Whether your start to 2019 is all about eating more greens, honing a set of lackluster cooking chops, or just saving some extra dough by skipping weeknight takeout, having the right support is key. While the internet is an ever-flowing source of recipe inspiration, the endless searchable options out there can feel overwhelming — especially when specific and resolve-testing resolutions come into play. So, instead of blindly blog-searching, we're turning to the classic masters of recipe organization: cookbooks.
When your lunch-packing-every-day-for-an-entire-month willpower begins to weaken and wane, there's a cookbook out there with a game plan. When you feel like "healthy" snacks can't possibly branch past almonds and apples, there's a creative recipe collection waiting to show you the light. Ahead we've rounded up 11 curated-cooking guidebooks (along with a bonus recipe preview from each) to help you slay any new year, new food resolution — from fast and easy sheet pan suppers to surprisingly vegan comfort dishes, one-pot feasts, inventive breakfast bites, and much more.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
