28 Joe Wicks Recipes | The Body Coach Lean in 15 Recipes

11 min read

Guilty of coming back to the same three recipes when you don’t know what to cook? We feel you, and we need Joe Wicks.

Let’s face it. No matter how much we might love our favourite recipes, they can get pretty boring to make and eat after a while, and even though there’s no denying that there are some banging dishes that have recently had their claim to fame and inspired us to try out something new (remember the Feta pasta that had us all in a chokehold for months?), the struggles of finding exciting and healthy meals every single day can be real.

If that’s you, then look no further. The many delicious, healthy and easy-to-follow Joe Wicks recipes are part of the reason people love his workout plan so much.

He’s the curly-haired PT with 4.5 million Instagram followers who Silly-Billied his way into the hearts and homes of the nation with his PE lessons throughout lockdown. The free YouTube series encouraged youngsters in isolation to kick-start their days with an exercise class led by Joe Wicks himself, and raised more than £91,000 for the NHS from advertisement revenue in the process. He also raised more than £1.5m for BBC Children in Need when in November 2020 he completed a 24-hour workout.

And that’s far from all: the father-of-two (who announced in March 2022 he and wife Rosie Jones are expecting their third child) has eight book titles under his name, including a best-selling veg-centric book Veggie: Lean In 15, which offers a whole host of vegetarian Joe Wicks recipes for you to try at home and his latest best-seller 30 Day Kick Start Plan. Then there’s the Body Coach app, launched in December 2020, which generates health plans comprising of short, sweet and sweaty HIIT workouts and Joe Wicks recipes for those looking to get fit. Phew, that’s a lot!

Are Joe Wicks recipes healthy?

Simple and tasty, the basic principle of the Lean in 15 approach is to include healthy fats, wholesome carbs and a lean source of protein in every meal. Post-workout, you eat more carbs to restore your glycogen levels. Easy.
