Thanks for these great ideas! I don’t really have anyone around here who would love those books (except me, haha) but I’m mostly making edible goodies for holiday gifts this time.

great list! I was actually just looking into some raw/vegan nutrition and info books, so this is really helpful, even if not for a gift :-)

Thanks for this great list of books! If only I had time to read all of them :) I’m reading Tomatoland for my book club group. I just started it, but so far it’s pretty interesting. I’ll have to let you know what I think when I’m done!

Thanks for the suggestions of E-Books… amazing! Can’t wait to read about eating raw while traveling… sounds awesome. Have you seen Food Babe’s Holiday Gift Guide yet? Would love to put some Twin Cakes Bakery Goods on there… :)

BTW – Why doesn’t HHM carry your biscotti anymore…I used to be so in LOVE with it – having it in the afternoon with tea…

Thanks for the good suggestions girls….I have read half of those and loved them, so I am sure the rest will all be great as well. I just released my first ebook (http://www.integratednaturalnutrition.com/books/healthy-holidays-ebook/) and would love if you would review it on your blog. If you are interested, let me know and I will send you a copy! One of the desserts was even inspired by some of your holiday themed macaroons. Keep the holiday goodies coming!
