TIME 100 Healthiest Foods to Satisfy Your Hunger - Paperback
Your best weight-loss weapons are foods that keep you feeling full, but new science is revealing that the foods we are told to eat to feel full - those rich in fiber and protein or both - aren’t your only options. Meanwhile, carbohydrates, often vilified, aren't off-limits. Nutritional science has evolved, and now we know there are carbs that actually fuel weight loss (while also being delicious). To take out the guesswork of what to eat, TIME’s health editors have curated a list of the 100 best foods for fullness - and it’s full of surprises. In this TIME special edition, you’ll find:
  • 100+ tasty foods - plus 20 recipes from the editors of Food & Wine and Cooking Light magazines! - to make part of your daily diet
  • How these foods reduce your risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, obesity and cancer
  • Nutritional information for every food, as well as their health-promoting properties
 
Straight Up Food: Delicious and Easy Plant-based Cooking without Salt, Oil or Sugar by Cathy Fisher
Veteran cooking instructor Cathy Fisher guides you in preparing delicious meals made from the most health-promoting ingredients on the planet! Her recipes call for 100% plant foods: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and contain no animal-derived ingredients: meat (beef, pork, fowl, fish, seafood), eggs, honey, or dairy products (cow's milk, cream, butter, cheese, yogurt). They are also gluten-free and "SOS-free" (made with no added salt, oil, or sugar).

These are dishes that most of us have been eating all of our lives--they've just been given a makeover! Although Cathy emphasizes whole foods instead of overly processed foods, flavor is not sacrificed: her recipes simply call for more healthful sources of sodium (salt), richness (fat), and sweetness (sugar).

This is not a complicated gourmet cookbook to be admired on the bookshelf, but rather a "let's make really good food so we can feel and look really good" cookbook filled with recipes you will make on a regular basis, like: potato salad, pesto pasta, minestrone soup, ranch dressing, and carrot cake. 

Cathy Fisher is the creator of the recipe blog StraightUpFood.com, and teaches cooking classes at TrueNorth Health Center and the McDougall Program, both located in Santa Rosa, California. Cathy has thrived on a plant-based diet since 1999.

Wine Food: New Adventures in Drinking and Cooking by Dana Frank and Andrea Slonecker
The wine lover's and food lover's playbook, with 75 wine styles and 250 producers to try with 75 recipes that go with them perfectly.

"Wine food" is the new way to talk about wine pairing, coined by the evolving breed of wine drinker and cook who wants to discover a wider range of wines and match them to the rustic, casual, global food they love to eat. In Wine Food, natural wine bar and winery owner Dana Frank partners with author and stylist Andrea Slonecker to deliver 75 recipes for brunches, salads, vegetable dishes, picnics, weeknight dinners, and feasts with friends, all inspired by delicious, affordable wines that go with them beautifully. Each recipe opens with a succinct overview of the wine style that inspired it, describing the grapes and naming the countries the wine comes from, followed by a brief explanation of how it complements the flavors and textures in the recipe. Recommendations for three to eight producers for every wine style highlighted will help cooks find a wide range of bottles in corner wine shops, grocers, and online. Frank and Slonecker also include a wine flavors cheat sheet, a label lexicon lesson, a short course on wine tasting like a pro, and illustrated features on matching wine with types of favorite foods (typical take-out, beloved pasta dishes, and popular sweets). With more than 75 atmospheric and recipe photos and 20 watercolor illustrations, Wine Food makes wine education experiential, fun, and especially delicious for wine drinkers of all knowledge levels.
