Healthy Living James is a recipe book with easy recipes that use everyday ingredients, to help you eat better. The book is nearly 100% plant-based and easily adaptable for the recipes that aren’t. As one reviewer writes, these recipes are ‘based around how normal people live – none of that three lettuce leaves and two slices of tomato will serve six’.
Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods are unsafe around animal friends).
As well as a very user-friendly layout, the 80 recipes are also free from gluten, so ideal for people with intolerances or allergies, and most recipes can be made in minutes, with a couple of pots and pans, and minimal washing-up. Learn to make:
- Strawberry granola pot

- Homemade pot noodle

James Wythe is a food blogger and health coach, whose life changed overnight, 10 years ago. He went to bed after a meal out with friends, and next morning could not get up. He was bedbound for 2 years (unable to communicate, eat, sleep, tolerate light or sound, watch TV or look at his phone). 6 months later after being diagnosed with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and told there was no cure, he was told by a nutritionist to cut out dairy and gluten, and slow began to heal.
He forced himself to get out of bed three times a day to cook, and gradually began to share his recipe online. His blog now gets 300,000 pages a month, and he has over 1 million social media followers. He and his family also run the blog Our Free-From Family, to help other families navigate life with allergies or long-term illness.
