Hey guys (and girls),
I posted a little bit ago about trying to improve my diet and add some variety into my diet since I seem to pretty much cook exactly the same meals with my veg all the time and therefore it gets boring and I end up going off my plan and mixing in unhealthy foods.
It was recommended that I go get some vegetarian cook books (although I'm not vegetarian, I want to make meat, poultry and fish part of my diet) and basically cook a load of these recipes (Adding the meat etc too) to give variety to my meals and what I doo with veg etc.
However, theres litereally hundreds of vegetarian books out there but a lot in the bookstores seem to include recipes using ingredients I want to avoid. They include things like pastry recipes and that kind of thing, and I'm wanting a more natural recipe book so that I'm using as little packaged ingredients as I can.
However, I'm not into the whole pure raw foot diet thing.
Can anyone recommend any books or even websites where I can get some recipes from that concentrate on purely healthy natural vegetarian meals?
Thanks for any advice.

Futuristic, I've been looking for the same thing in vegan and apparently it's a lot to ask for. Sigh. If you're mainly looking for side dishes to serve up with your meat, maybe you'd like the Nourishing Traditions cookbook. There's a section on vegetable salads, a section on cooked vegetable side dishes, and even sections on pickling vegetables and growing your own sprouts. There's also a section on whole grains and another on beans. Of course, there are also yummy meat recipes. Everything is totally from scratch, sometimes overwhelmingly so (such as making your own sour cream and nut butters and grinding your own flour)... but you can substitute prepackaged foods as you wish.
Another idea might be to just make a list of vegetables and try preparing a different one each week. Read up on the vegetable, look up different recipes online, and just try the one that appeals to you the most.
Bleike, I looked up Brandon Brazier and he was just promoting some "whole food powder" and I couldn't figure out what type of recipes to expect from his book.
