This cookbook is really neat. After the typical "kitchen gadget" section, it's broken down into two categories: fruits and vegetables. These are then broken down into subcategories, telling you about each type of fruit and veg (broken down by section), varieties, how to pick them &c.
At the end of each section, it gives recipes using the ingredients covered in that particular section. It even has a lot of produce items that I was unfamiliar with.
Even if you don't get it as a cookbook, it's still an interesting and informative read with lots of pretty pictures.

Getting five servings of fruits and vegetables was our biggest obstacle to healthy eating. We found that by always having a fruit with breakfast (1/2 a banana or 1/2 cup blueberries) and a fruit with lunch (an apple or an orange) and then always cook at least three vegetables with dinner.
I found a great cookbook that makes baking bread easy! I know what's in it. The calories are lower than bought bread. It's fantastic! "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day" http://www.amazon.com/Healthy-Bread-Five-Minutes-Day/dp/0312545525/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276623768&sr=1-1
I've always been intimidated by bread. I'm a cook and baker & up to any challenge. I never thought I had 'the feel' for making delicious, light bread like Grandma made. This takes all the 'feel' out of it and you get great results!
