Here are some other recommended resources:
Practical Paleo by Diane San Filippo This book with cookbook was one of the first that I purchased when I realized that I was sensitive to most grains and therefore a Paleo-type diet would work well for me. All of these recipes are gluten and dairy free. Some recipes for great spice blends are also included. This is a great addition for anyone who needs to adopt a lower carbohydrate diet and limit grains and legumes.
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon This is the nutritional "bible" for the Weston A. Price Foundation and is a great basic cookbook. This has detailed recipes for bone broth, fermented foods and crispy nuts. It also explains about soaking grains and legumes. I highly recommend this for anyone who is committed to cooking and eating real, whole foods.
Against All Grain by Danielle Walker This book was written to recreate many comfort-type foods to be gluten and dairy free. There are fantastic dessert recipes as well. This cookbook is great for anyone on a Paleo or Specific Carbohydrate diet or who is on a lower carbohydrate diet.
The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook by Alissa Segersten and Tom Maltese This is another great basic cookbook. Segersten is a professional chef and her husband, Tom Malterre is a certified clinical nutritionist. They are also parents of young children so all of these recipes are family-friendly and whole-foods based. These recipes are also gluten-free but do include other grains and legumes.
The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam This was the very first gluten-free book that I purchased when I discovered I was on the celiac spectrum. There are a number of great breads and desserts using almond flour.
Food Rules: An Eaters Manual by Michael Pollan This short book gives practical details on his guidelines to "Eat Food. Not To Much. Mostly Plants." If you follow the rules in this book as the initial steps into real food eating, then this will be an excellent beginning point for your most appropriate eating plan.
Food Rules by Catherine Shanahan, MD This is a short book, similar to Pollan's with more of an emphasis on a lower carbohydrate, anti-inflammatory diet. This book is best for anyone with an autoimmune disease, or who is dealing with obesity along with diabetes or pre-diabetes.

Allergic Living This is an excellent website for anyone with one or more food allergies. They have articles and recipes as well as an good newsletter and print magazine.

Dr. Kelly Brogan is a functional psychiatrist whose tagline is "change your food, heal your mood". This site provides excellent advice for mental health, as well as nutrition advice for women at all life stages.
Center for Environmental and Occupational Medicine This is a world class medical center in North Charleston, SC. I see Dr. Bettina Herbert there, who is an IFM certified practitioner.
