I think my love of cooking has helped with my weight loss. Because I enjoy cooking, I don't have to rely on processed crap like frozen dinners or meal replacement bars or whatever. I've had so much fun trying new foods and new recipes and I'm really learning to eat healthy in a way that I can maintain for life. My only criteria for a "healthy recipe" is that it contain ingredients that are real actual food. Any recipe that includes a list of 6 cans o' stuff is one that I will promptly ignore.
I can't help with cookbook suggestions, though. I do all my recipe collecting online. I haven't looked at a cookbook in years.
