Great suggestions for cookbooks! I will check some of them out...
I concur with the South Beach ideas. It jump-started me to getting volumes of veggies in. I just try to avoid the fake sweeteners.

She has wraps using collard green wrappers, pad thai made with shirataki or tofu noodles, edamame hummus ... haven't tried any recipes yet but I am excited about it; the recipes are interesting.
