Looking for websites/blog/book recommendations focusing on light, nutritious, tasty meals.

Things like spring vegetable soup, fish/seafood, miso and tofu, salads, light egg dishes and the occasional chicken dish (yes I can Google but am looking for personal recommendations).

Nothing winter heavy like cottage pie, Sunday roasts, lasagne, mutton soups, deep fried things or heavy cream sauces/puddings.

Simple but nutritious and easy on the digestion.

Oh I posted twice. Ignore the other thread, I'll get it deleted.

Have you had a look at Diana Henry’s A Change of Appetite? I don’t personally have it but have other books by her that I love.

I hadn't karma but have looked it up on her website and it sounds like exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for. Thank you!

Curious about what ‘healthy eating’ really means, and increasingly bombarded by both readers and friends for recipes that are ‘good for you’, Diana discovered a lighter, fresher way of eating. From a Cambodian salad of prawns, grapefruit, toasted coconut and mint or North African mackerel with cumin to blood orange and cardamom sorbet, the magical dishes in this book are bursting with flavour, goodness and colour

Try the new Wagamama cookbook, lots of vegetarian/vegan/lighter options in it.

Also Sarah Raven's Good Good Food.

I really like Deliciously Ella's recipes. They are all very nutritious and very easy on the stomach as they're designed for people with various sensitivities.
