Cookbooks & recipe books: Do you know of any good bodybuilding or fitness-friendly recipe books?

Dear Tom,

I recently purchased your Burn The Fat E-book - it’s great. Thanks for putting all that info in one place for us. I have one question though: Your e-book has the sample menus and menu templates, but you didn’t include any recipes. Are you planning to write a recipe book? Or, can you recommend a good source for healthy recipes?

I’ve been thinking about doing a recipe book, but I would need a lot of help to pull that off because I’m more or less clueless in the kitchen.

So, because I’m “culinarily-challenged,” here are some other people’s resources I’d recommend checking out:
