Remember Michael Pollan's advice? "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
If you, or someone on your holiday shopping list, are working on point three, or plan to in the New Year, here is an interesting list of vegan cookbooks from vegan.com. I would add to this list my favorites, Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. You don't have to be a vegetarian - I'm not - to enjoy cooking with these books.
Gift brainstorm: A cookbook andproduce bags to keep veggies fresh. A nice combination.
