Happy herbivore books are by far my favorite, especially "everyday happy herbivore"...and a new one is coming out soon! "Fresh from the vegetarian slowcooker" is good too, and "the american vegetarian cookbook from the fit for life kitchen" and "vegan vittles" are good for those just starting out, I think. Also used to use "how it all vegan" a lot...come to think of it I have too many cookbooks!!! (But I'm still totally buying the new happy herbivore...!)

I've been using Rawmazing by Susan Powers lately, she's got some great stuff in there! emoticon

I started out top weight 245 but that was when I actually got on a scale. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Over the years I've learned that I do so much better when I eat organic foods and I haven't eaten red meat in years I have been gradually working more raw foods, vegetables and fruit into my diet. I avoid drive through resturants like the plague.

I too love the Happy Herbivore books. I have made several recipes from those books and my husband and I both enjoy them.
Thanks to all for some of the other recommendations.

Hi there!

Almost every recipe I have tried from "Appetite for Reduction" is AMAZING! I highly recommend it. You can buy a used copy on Amazon for about $12. That's what I did. "

My fav cookbook is Supermarket Vegan. Lots of simple easy recipes with easy to find ingredients. Also check out Fat Free Vegan and Post Punk Kitchen blogs for ideas.

Everyday Happy Herbivove cookbook by Lindsay Nixon and The E2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn are my go-to books. Easy to find ingredients, tasty and simple. Also check out the www.ohsheglows.com website. Angela Liddon's recipes are really good. And here on Spark there are lots of great recipes.

Hi! I'm Connie. My family has recently become vegetarian, and we would like to cut out dairy as well. We will still be eating honey and cruelty-free eggs.

I'm looking for recommendations for recipe books that don't use meat or dairy, but that also don't use a lot of "fake" substitutes. I'm trying to stay away of processed food as much as I can.

Do any of you have a favorite cookbook you turn to often?
