For each cookbook, I have listed the authors' websites. Many of these websites have dozens of free recipes online!

Cookbooks by Plant-Based Physicians lists additional cookbooks written by physicians who spearhead the plant-based diet movement. These physicians have treated thousands of patients over the years. Some have done ground-breaking medical research. Most have raised families with kids on plant-based diets.
