The best cookbooks for eating clean, going gluten-free, nixing sugar, and more. 

As Health's food director, I read a lot of cookbooks, and I can happily say that 2016 was an excellent year for healthy cooks—no matter your definition of "healthy," or your skill level in the kitchen. So whether you're shopping for yourself or are in search of a thoughtful holiday gift, consider one of the following cookbooks. They're filled with all kinds of healthy recipes—gluten-free, Paleo, vegetarian, you name it—that will help you eat a clean, balanced, and delicious diet.
