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.

I just received "The Balanced Plate" by Renee Loux. It is not advertised as vegan, but I think it is; I didn't find a single egg or milk in the book yet (the cauliflower creme chowder is made with pine nuts and almonds... )

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.

The best part? It's on sale for $3.98 at Daedalus:

My other recent purchase, which I , is the Healthy Slow Cooker. I took it out from the library and wanted to copy so many recipes that I went ahead and ordered the book:

http://www.amazon.com/Healthy-Slow-C.../dp/0778801330

You can peek inside that one for an idea of the recipes.

Happy cooking
