Bored of Lunch Healthy Slow Cooker: Even Easier

Who’s the author? Northern Irish home cook Nathan Anthony is a bestselling food author, social media sensation, and TV personality. He set up his Instagram platform Bored of Lunch in 2020, as a way to get people into cooking from scratch and eating more healthily during lockdown. He soon amassed millions of followers and has since brought out two highly successful cookbooks: Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Slow Cooker Book and Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Air Fryer Book. Nathan has been featured on This Morning and Steph’s Packed Lunch and now has a combined following of over 2.4 million across his social media platforms.

What’s it about? With this book, Nathan returns to the slow cooker with a collection of 80 ‘even easier’ recipes to transform your weeknight cooking.

More and more of us are looking for ways to cook delicious, healthy, hassle-free versions of our favourite meals – while still keeping an eye on our household budgets. Slow cookers are a cost-effective way to cook, using a fraction of the energy of a conventional oven, but Nathan takes this budget-friendly approach further by focusing on everyday, easy-to-source ingredients that won’t break the bank.

Every recipe is under 500 calories too, and with as little as five minutes of hands-on prep time, fewer ingredients and clever time-saving tips, this book will soon have you sharing Nathan’s passion for healthy, home-cooked meals made with the humble slow cooker.

Recipes we love: Chicken Noodle Soup, Vegetarian Enchiladas, Tomato and Mascarpone Risotto with Sticky Halloumi, and Carrot Cake Overnight Oats.

Perfect for: Fans of Nathan’s previous bestselling books, as well as busy home cooks and parents who want to make quick, easy, and healthy recipes with their favourite kitchen appliance.
