I really want to get a book which explains all about the different nutrients in foods and which foods are good for different parts of the body. Can anyone recommend one? At the moment i'm googling for info, but it'd be great to have most of the information to hand in one volume.
Thanks for any help :)

I really like Rawsome! by Brigitte Mars. Not only is it a cook book, it talks about a whole bunch of foods and what they are good for (in the body) and full of (nutritionally).

The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods by Michael Murray. It's not raw vegan but it has more plant foods then not.

"The World's Healthiest Foods - Essential Guide For The Healthiest Way Of Eating" by George Mateljan, and "Staying Healthy With Nutrition" by Elson Haas, M.D. I know the second one is (or was in the past) used at Bastyr University as a textbook. Both are excellent reference books, the first one food specific, the other one nutrient specific and also an overall guide to nutrition, detox, health, etc.

Wow thanks Zanjabil and EmmaT - your suggestions look great - I certainly have a lot of books to look at now so hopefully will be able to order one soon.
