Food Recipe Books ("Un-Cookbooks")
Important Note: The healthiest diet doesn't include gourmet recipes on a regular basis. Many of the recipes contained in these books (except the first one) invariably contain too much fat (nuts, seeds, oils) to eat as part of a healthy diet. They are mentioned here to show that recipes don't have to be cooked.

-- Contains many Simple 'n Healthy Raw Cuisine recipes by the pioneer
in simple and healthy eating.
The above book is the only one I can wholeheartedly recommend.
"Garden Of Eden Raw Fruit & Vegetable Recipes" by Phyllis Avery (127 pgs.) -- This fantastic book contains over 160 raw-food recipes, including 44 main dishes, all made from fresh, raw produce. Phyllis is a long-time practitioner of Natural Hygiene and was a close friend of the late T.C. Fry, one of the foremost advocates of the raw-food diet in the world. Excellent transition tips and ideas.
