January's Best-Selling Cookbooks: Thug Kitchen Does It Again

Let’s all stand back and marvel at the sheer force of nature that is Thug Kitchen's official cookbook, which—for the third time in four months—is the best-selling cookbook on Amazon.com. 

The book’s irreverent tone has clearly struck a chord with readers, who also made it the second-most popular cookbook of 2014. It likely doesn’t hurt, too, that its recipes tend toward the healthy side, explains Amazon books editor Seira Wilson.

"After the (over)indulgences of December, January is typically a time to turn over a new leaf and vow to eat healthy,” she told us in an email. “So it comes as no great surprise that January’s top three cookbooks in print”—which also include The Skinnytaste Cookbook and 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse—”are vegan, low-calorie, and a cleanse.” 

In fact, a whopping eight out of 10 of the below titles are health-related, which speaks volumes about consumers’ mental space. Guess the beer-glazed maple bacon will have to wait until next month, huh?
