I was hesitant to follow this diet at first, but it's actually very diverse and simple.
The book that helped get me started was Disease-Proof Your Child. Then I read Eat to Live by the same author which has more grown up recipes. Eat to Live also discusses this "plant-based" diet in a lot of detail.
