    It's no secret that one of the most important factors in building the type of body other men lust after is nutrition... making sure you get the right amount of protien, carbs and fats throughout the day to fuel your body for the next workout and help in the recovery process from your last one. My question is: Are there any good cookbooks and/or resources for recipes out there that might help spice things up every now and then, while still keeping things nutritionally sound? Right now I seem to be in a rut: eggwhites and oatmeal for breakfast, grilled chicken, steamed broccoli and a sweet potato for lunch, turkey sandwich before my workout, protien drink after, etc.... I know that shaking things up during your workouts is good for you. I can't help but think the same would hold true for what you eat on a daily basis. Any suggestions of cookbooks for the cooking impaired would be greatly appreciated (in other words, nothing too complicated, or chances are I won't get around to making it). Thanks in advance for your help.

    There are a number of books on this subject. Try "Power Eating" by Susan Kleiner, for example.

    Personally, I like:

    Bob Greene's Recipes from 'Get with the Program: Guide to Good Eating"

    Bill Phillips' "Eating for Life: Your Guide to Great Health, Fat Loss and Increased Energy!"

    "Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Get Real Meals: Eat Healthy Without Going to Extremes" by Rachael Ray

    "Marlene Koch's Sensational Splenda Recipes: Over 375 Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat, and Calories" by Marlene Koch

    "The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook: Great-Tasting Recipes That Keep you Lean" by Tosca Reno

    "The Insulin-Resistance Diet : How to Turn Off Your Body's Fat-Making Machine" by Cheryle R. Hart M.D. and Mary Kay Grossman R.D.

    A friend just gave me: "The Biggest Loser Cookbook: More Than 125 Healthy, Delicious Recipes Adapted from NBC's Hit Show" by Devin Alexander, Karen Kaplan, and Bob Harper ; for my birthday. I have only just skimmed it so far, but like what I saw.

    instead of broccoli....try fresh baby spinach, sauted in olive oil and minced garlic....i also have been eating alot more fish, baked salmon and tilapia...i sprinkle some dill and s/p...its quick...its easy...and its YUM!!!

    Also, the Southbeach diet cook book is very good...lots of great recipes that are healthy and appropriate for guys looking to maintain or build a bit muscular body.
