App Description

Healthy Recipes has been featured by Apple as NEW AND NOTEWORTHY, as a STAFF PICK and as a feature in the Good Food apps collection. Healthy Recipes is part of a family of Good Food recipe apps: other iPhone apps include the Festive Recipes app, Cake Recipes, Quick Recipes, One-Pot recipes and Good Food for Friends. For the iPad we’ve also got the Healthy Recipes and Quick iPad apps and the BBC Good Food magazine iPad app.*

BBC Good Food – healthy recipes to use year-round.

Healthy eating isn’t just for January. That’s why our healthy recipes app has over 195 ideas to help you stick to your resolve, and see you through the year.

There’s something for every course – including the most important meal of the day – breakfast. We’ve also added over 35 recipes that contain less than 200 calories per portion, as well as healthy twists on classic dishes like Chicken korma and Chocolate brownies.

Each recipe includes nutritional information on kcals, protein, carbs, fat, saturated fat, fibre, sugar and salt per serving.

You can switch between metric and imperial measurements on all recipes.

Our selection of videos will help you improve basic skills with some healthy ingredients, like how to prepare fresh fish, and how to grill peppers.

We’ll also show you how to choose and prepare 10 healthy ingredients to try to include in your diet – from salmon to spinach.

Find recipes by:
Course: Breakfast, starters, mains, puddings, less than 200 cals, healthy classics, low fat soups, low fat sides, vegetarian, all recipes
Ingredient: search for what’s in your cupboard or by recipe title
Type: all our vegetarian recipes are clearly marked to make choosing easy

You can save recipes to Favourites for easy access when you’re mid-cook, add them to a shopping list and send recipes to friends, too.


Visit us at bbcgoodfood.com for over 8300 more recipes, all triple-tested by the BBC Good Food cookery team.

This app is produced by BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC. BBC Worldwide is self-funded and returns profits to the BBC to be reinvested in programmes and services to help keep the UK licence fee as low as possible. For those who wonder why our apps aren’t free, BBC Worldwide has the responsibility of channelling funds back to the BBC, so the BBC can continue to create amazing content.
