Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Slow Cooker Book

Written by

Nathan Anthony


05 January 2023

Who’s the author?: Nathan Anthony is the home cook behind the hugely popular Bored of Lunch accounts on Instagram and TikTok. He has amassed well over a million followers with his accessible, healthy recipes made using a slow cooker or air-fryer.

What’s it about?: Making meals in a slow cooker will not only save you plenty of hassle in the kitchen, it’ll save you money too. This nifty piece of kitchen kit uses far less energy than an oven or hob, making it the appliance of choice for budget-conscious cooks. Nathan has become a go-to source of inspiration for what to make in a slow cooker and his debut cookbook is a treasure trove of ideas for every day of the week. The 80 calorie-counted recipes include pasta, risotto, curries and healthy versions of your favourite takeaways, all of which leave the hard work to the slow cooker while you get on with your day. With simple methods and easy-to-find ingredients, this is a perfect accompaniment for the chef looking to expand their repertoire of slow cooker recipes. 

Recipes we love: Honey Chilli Beef Noodles, Garlic Mac and Cheese and Lemon Butter Chicken.

Who’s it for?: This is for anyone with a slow cooker looking to broaden their repertoire without breaking the bank. The calorie-counted recipes also make Bored of Lunch: Slowcooker a great companion for those following a diet programme.
