your bookshelf…

…needs these books! (Alphabetical by title.)

Greene on Greens, by Bert Greene (unfortunately out of print, but available used). This is an entire book just about vegetables. Every kind of vegetables.

The Laurel’s Kitchen Bread Book: A Guide to Whole-Grain Breadmaking
by Laurel Robertson, Bronwen Godfrey, and Carol Flinders.

Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home: Fast and Easy Recipes for Any Day
by the Moosewood Collective. There are many good Moosewood recipes in their different cookbooks, but I use this one the most.

Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating with More Than 75 Recipes

…a fantastic book, with all kinds of great reasoning behind his approach to food; excellent tips and suggestions for using fewer processed foods and more vegetables and fruits; and a section of really, really good recipes.

Runner’s World Complete Book of Women’s Running: The Best Advice to Get Started, Stay Motivated, Lose Weight, Run Injury-Free, Be Safe, and Train for Any Distance (Runner’s World Complete Books)
by Dagny Scott Barrios. This has an excellent overview of how to get started running, plus details about programs, staying healthy, running races, finding  groups, and everything else you would want to know.

Also helpful and worth buying, but less essential:
The New Glucose Revolution, by Jennie Brand-Miller and Thomas M.S. Wolever.
This is a great overview of how to eat to manage blood sugar. It’s easy to follow and is similar to the insulin-resistance diet (I recommend reading both). It’s not really a diet plan–I liked it because it gave me scientific information to help me make better food choices.

The Insulin-Resistance Diet, by Cheryle Hart and Mary Kay Grossman.
