When I google a recipe, allrecipes.com comes up a lot and www.epicurious.com/ . One thing to look for is a lot of ratings based on the amount of time the recipe has been there and a high number of stars; those are usually winners one can start with before exploring others.

I am actually finding magazines and blogs more helpful than cookbooks these days, especially since I don't do dairy or wheat any more.

I get my books from the library and check them out that way first; if I really like it, I buy it. I also like to google recipes. There are quite a few sites with good recipes. Here is one for veggies: http://vegetariantimes.com which is one of my favorites.

I don't know of one off hand but will be on the lookout for one . I'm in paperbackswap.com so I can put in what I'm looking for and some may be listed there.

Hi team! I would like to eat more fruits and veggies and am searching for a good cookbook. Do any of you recommend one? I would like one that's low calorie, gives nutritional facts, is wallet friendly, doesn't need 50 ingredients for one recipe, is quick (no *wait for an hour for dough to rise* recipes), and most importantly, is clean and mostly veggie recipes. I want to move away from meat and would like to start loving greens again. Yet I'm also not fully vegetarian so I don't need a book that requires meat alternatives. I am thinking of cleansing my body with whole, clean foods, but don't want anything too boring or too raw. Hope that makes sense. Thanks for any recommendations!
