I also love Clean Eating Magazine and Tosca Reno's cookbooks. A staple on my counter right now is her new one, Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook.

Add a new one to the List:

"Master Your Metabolism" by Jillian Michaels. Not only about wholefood/organic eating..but adapting your whole lifestyle that way.

Definitely all of Tosca Reno's books!
I know they're not specifically 'whole foods' but eating clean is close enough!
The recipes in her new Eat-Clean Diet Recharged are AH-MAZING!! I highly recommend it
I also love Clean Eating mag...mmmm...I get hungry just looking at the pictures!

"The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, & Weight Loss," by Marc David.

The final page of the book:

* Before you test the chemistry of your body, taste your tears.
* Before you take a drug, meditate, reflect, and pray.
* Before you limit yourself with a diet, expand yourself with love.
* Before you lose a pound, gain an insight.
* Before you exercise, be still.
* Before you attempt to cast out a bad habit, thank it for its teachings.
* Before you harm yourself in thought, word, or deed, pause.
* Before you allow someone dominion over your body, awaken.
* Before you seek advice, remember your wisdom.
* Before you speak, make sure it's an improvement on silence.
* Before you're intimate with another, touch the sacred.
* Before you fall ill, catch yourself.
* Before you lapse into fear, choose light.
* Before you believe in a world absent of a Creator, give birth.
* Before you remember your divine purpose, celebrate its imminent arrival.
* Before you eat, give gratitude.
* Before you sit for long hours, dance
* Before you arise, bless everything.
* Before you sleep, do the same.
* Before you live another day, agree to be here in your fullness.
* And before you breathe another breath, choose eternity, choose love, choose now.

I loved Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma"! It got me started with organic foods... I also just ordered his "In Defense of Food" book - it should come in tomorrow

I really enjoy Super Natural Cooking by Heidi Swanson. The book, more than anything, shows you how whole foods can be incorporated into your daily cooking routine, and how they can pair with other ingredients in the kitchen. I also love The Flexitarian's Cookbook. LOVELY recipes!

I have to third Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Real Food: What to Eat and Why by Nina Planck. Nina is responsible for starting a lot of the farmer's markets in England. Both great books!

The book "Ultimate You: A 4-Phase Total Body Makeover" by Joe Dowdell CSCS and Brooke Kalanick, ND, MS is a book that advocates changing over to an organic plant-based and organic, hormone-free protein diet, as well as getting rid of plastics that leach hormones into our foods. It's a great book! I'm trying it again...

The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf was a life changer for me. He also has a ton of free info on his blog and does a weekly podcast too.

Everyday Paleo, this is a good cook book, especially for Moms and families.

Why We Get Fat by Gary Tabues, it is not a "whole foods" book but does have a lot of related info.

Forks Over Knives - Lots of tasty recipes for someone who is new to plant based diet.

I also reccomend Engine 2 Diet book for the great recipes.

The China Study is a great book.
