Because there's been hundreds of good threads and they are always too hard to find. In fact, I can't find the threads I had in mind right now. These are what I find when I search. Feel free to post suggestions. But,
Please add recipes to the existing threads. Or, if none exist that suit your topic, start a new thread. Make it a good one and it'll get added here too.
Also, not everything here is going to be suitable for you. You need to figure out what intolerances you may have and how strict you need to be.
Sources for better food: local, wild, organic, etc:
http://www.eatwild.com/ - to find farms near you.
People's shopping lists, sources and how they use those foods. I hope more people will post theirs.

whfoods.org, where all the recipes prepare foods in the best way possible to preserve nutrients. Which, in the case of veggies, mostly means steaming or what they call healthy saute (in water) and topping them with what they call Mediterranean dressing (olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, S & P).

Recipe collection by an acne sufferer:
Oh, She Glows! blog:
A woman blogs about how she got her glow back after years of bad diets and i think an eating disorder. Link to her recipe page:http://ohsheglows.co...off-the-season/ Includes ways to make some basic stuff special, like Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Pie oatmeal and Oat parfaits in which you layer your soaked overnight oats with all kinds of things like banana ice 'cream.' You are putting your overripe bananas in the freezer, right? You should be.
Pre-industrial and/or Traditional diet sites and blogs:
This guy, a neurobiologist, is kind of primal with a bit of Weston Price tendencies, i.e. willing to eat properly prepared grains/legumes.
Weston Price foundation: http://www.westonapr...rg/healthtopics But they don't seem to have recipes there anymore? I suppose because they sell books. Maybe there are still some in these articles: http://www.westonapr...aditional-diets
The NourishingGourmet: Lots of good info on properly preparing foods including sprouting, fermenting...
The Nourished Kitchen - reviving traditional foods
Refer also to blogs/books from various ethnic groups. Indian, for example.
No Meat Athlete Vegetarian recipe site:
http://www.nomeatath...s-for-athletes/ Obviously not going to be allgrain/seed free, although some are. But there's a lot of smoothie and drink recipes, raw items, desserts, and nutrient dense veggie recipes worth checking out. Many are vegan.
Paleo/Primal diet sites and blogs. Even if you don't follow a paleo diet, they can be good sources for recipes to make dishes that are normally high in grains and processed carbs out of more nutrient dense foods. Breads, pastas, pizzas, deserts, snacks... Gluten free since they don't use grains.
Mark's Daily Apple (He's a paleo-like guru with a book called the Primal Diet. The primal diet is anti-grain but not anti dairy.)
Primal Substitutes for Non-Primal Foods http://www.marksdail...#comment-514158 It's a good bunch of recipes.

Most recipes in these shows that I've seen is fast and healthy. Although a few times, I have seen them use some processed convenience foods I don't approve of. Use your judgement. And avoid the recipes high in white flour and potato products.
Jaime Oliver's Meals in Minutes/30 minute Meals TV show - mostly real, whole nutrient dense food with the occasional bit of bread or noodles.
-Just Cook This/Sam the Cooking Guy - FitTV/DHC cooking show.
-Eric Ripert's 'Get Toasted' blog
Famous French chef posts recipes using a broiler/toaster oven. Fast, easy, healthy, simple, but with the little extra touches a French chef would add. The broiled fruit is really good desert substitute. Or breakfast. I used nectarines. I tried the mangos, but didn't like it. Mangos have an aftertaste that got worse with cooking.
-America's Test Kitchen - experiments to find great tips/recipes to help you get great results. Also tests gadgets, cookware and appliances.
-Everyday Food - PBS series that goes along with Martha Stewarts Everyday Food magazine. A very good show.
-French Women Don't get Fat recipes

Adding Veggies to your favorite foods:
Cookie Magazine's Sneak it In recipes of kid friendly foods filled with veggies great for those that think they don't like veggies. The veggies in these are not invisible, though, like in the two sites below. Note cookie magazine no longer exists but if you search, you may find a way to these recipes.
Deceptively Delicious- cookbook in which veggie purees are snuck into meat loaf, brownies, chicken tenders, etc. Free recipes on this site. You'll need to reduce the sugar. I can vouch for cauliflower in scrambled eggs, I tried it accidently when trying to make the cauliflower pizza crust on a griddle on the stovetop rather than in the oven. It wouldn't hold together so I scrambled it. Only 1 egg and a lot more cauliflower, but it tasted like eggs.
Sneaky Chef - Similar to the above. With even more free recipes and tips.
Gluten Free Girl and the Chef blog: http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/
Kitchen Stewardship - Good site on preparing foods in the best ways, including soaking and fermenting:
Site with online courses in such things including how to make sourdough into just about anything:
http://gnowfglins.com/ecourse/ Some kind of paid membership required.
Note there are also recipes in the What to Eat threads below.
