Eat Empowered, Healthy Recipes

How to Cook Like Top Wellness Experts


Cookbooks often introduce you to the tricks, tools, and recipes of one kitchen pro. This one is more of a healthy eating roundtable.

Well+Good: 100 Healthy Recipes + Expert Advice for Better Living is the first cookbook from Well+Good founders Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula, and the duo tapped their vast network of health and wellness experts to fill its pages.

Think trainers and yoga teachers like Taryn Toomey and Sky Ting Yoga founders Krissy Jones and Chloe Kernahgan, athletes like Misty Copeland and Venus Williams, healthy-leaning chefs like Marco Canora and Seamus Mullen, functional medicine doctors like Frank Lipman, MD, and spiritual leaders like Gabrielle Bernstein. And those are just a few of the cooks in the kitchen.

Recipes—from honey-matcha-glazed doughnuts to cashew-ricotta turkey lasagna—are organized into morning meals, smoothies and smoothie bowls, light fare, mains, sweets + snacks, and cocktails, coffees, + turbo-charged tonics.

In between, you’ll find “Good Advice” also provided by hand-picked experts, like Shelby Harris’ tips to eat for better sleep and Jill Blakeway’s on how to eat for better sex.
