In the USA, a vegan cookbook Thug Kitchen has been one of the top-selling books for several weeks. The 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse has surged back in popularity. Other cookbooks related to diet restrictions are also selling well – The Skinnytaste Cookbook (low calorie), Plenty More (vegetable recipes), and Against All Grain (grain-free, gluten-free).
In the UK, The Hairy Dieters’ third low-calorie book, Good Eating, continues to be the top-selling diet book. River Cottage Light & Easy, a whole-foods, dairy free and wheat free recipe book, is one of the top-selling books. Plenty More (vegetable recipes) is also selling well, as it is in the USA.
The positions in the bestselling charts are according to a snapshot of book sales from Amazon. The number in brackets next to the top titles is the ranking in all books – e.g. 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse is the no. 14 top selling book and the no. 63 top selling Kindle book in the USA on Amazon at the time of writing.
