Cookbooks for Wellness

How Not to Die Cookbook
Corresponding to Dr. Greger’s How Not to Die book, this cookbook provides delicious recipes and color photos for almost every recipe. The entire cookbook is whole food plant based no oil. You can feel confident that you will have a healthy, and delicious meal, with this cookbook as your guide.

Forks Over Knives – The Cookbook
What this cookbook lacks in images for the recipes, it makes up for with delicious recipes all using the whole food plant based no oil model. A center section has some pictures in color, but overall you will want to skim through to see which recipes sound delicious. Give something a try – you’ll bound to love it.

Thug Kitchen
If you don’t mind a little bit of vulgar language (okay…actually a lot of vulgar language) you will find this is an excellent vegan cookbook. Many recipes call for oil but could be substituted with water or vegetable broth (like when you saute vegetables).
