I want to start cooking simple & natural recipes. The only problem is that a lot of the recipes I find online are too "fancy" and call for ingredientes that are hard to find and out of my budget. Does anyone know where I can find recipes that just use regular ingredientes (fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, eggs, flour, salt & pepper, rice, etc.) I am hoping to learn how to cook in a way that could be sustainable without a grocery store!
Oh and ALSO the moosewood collective cookbooks - enchanted broccoli forest etc, are all really good.
I looked up the la leche league cook book (the whole foods one) and it looks really awesome. Seems to be a whole manual on cooking natural and making stuff from scratch. I will definitely be trying to find this one. Thanks!
My favorite cookbooks are, I kid you not, weight watchers cookbooks. They're whole foods and intended to be yummy. If you find they're too low cal/fat for you, you could adjust them.
I like this one for quick foods:

"The Art of Simple Food' by Alice Waters
I own only one cookbook, and that is it. I guess I own Nourishing Traditions too, but i never used the recipes, and it's been on loan for about 2 years now.....
I was running a retreat kitchen for a month and needed a simple, whole foods based approach to recipes that volunteers with minimal experience could use for ANY food item. And 'The Art of Simple Food' covered everything I needed, and a few things i would never make.
