I realized that most of cookbooks I own aren't very helpful in this area- they have gorgeous pictures of amazing desserts. Even the main dishes are made with lots of processed ingredients and people put sugar in the strangest things.... So, I splurged and purchased two new cookbooks.
I found the Power Foods cookbook on Amazon for $15. It has lots of extra information about healthy foods to include in your diet- but so far, I've just been focusing on the healthy recipes. I've tried the walnut- crusted chicken (I replaced the walnuts with pecans) and the lemon chicken with avocado-corn salsa chicken and both were excellent!
I'll let you know how the other cookbook is (if I like it)- just browsing through it I noticed several unusual ingredients and the recipes seem to call for quite a bit of sugar... so, we'll see.
