Default Cookbook help

I'm looking for some more cookbooks with strictly healthy things in it. I've already got the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook and love it! I'm growing tired of the same things over and over again though.

I love Betty Crocker Win at Weight Loss Cookbook : A Healthy Guide for the Whole Family.

I also like Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200 which has great lunch and snack ideas.

I don't watch the show but I just ordered the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. It looks really good.

I like cooking light, it's a magazine you can pick up at the grocery store. Even though I don't do weight watcher, I like some of their cookbooks as well. They provide the calorie counts and points values of each of their recipes. Some good recipes in there.

OH yeah I second Tosca Reno, and also Suzanne Somers cookbooks. I don't follow her plan but by golly her recipes are delicious. Some of them are not low calorie (lobster and drawn butter!) but she has a lot of light recipes as well.

Weight Watchers has a delicious slow cooker cookbook. I don't cook from it anymore since it's mainly meat, but it was tasty at the time.

And I also second the Mandalinn Cookbook! Holy cow her posts make me hungrier than any I've read.
