Celebrity chef and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen has a funny and helpful cookbook, Cravings. This critically acclaimed cookbook focuses on “clean” eating with a wide variety of meals. It was so popular that she wrote a sequel, Cravings: Hungry for More.

Registered dietitian Abbey Sharp says that she loves the book’s healthy recipes that aren’t centered on “diet food”. Instead of emphasizing weight loss or health conditions, Cravings concentrates on having fun without even noticing that your meals are healthy.
