    Saved My Life

    This is the only low sodium recipe book that was intended for my heart challenge. I was diagnosed terminal. I bought a bunch of books but settled on this one. Perfect. After 6 months following the plan in the book my heart got smaller, my EF went up and I'm back at work. Just read the Megaheart.com website if you want to know more. (The address is in the book.) The author helps us even though we have his book. no feels there, either. This is a miracle book. Thank you, thank you.

    Wow Wow Wow

    To the Author: Your finished product is SUPERB. I did a number of your breads and rolls over the holidays and your Lemon Chicken this week. All are perfecto. I made your soup stocks--chick and veg--last weekend and have SO many recipes I want to do this weekend. I admit that I was getting frustrated with the delay. However your website had given me so much confidence about adapting other recipes (and I DO live in a good-grocery area) to the extent that my thought about your much-delayed cookbook was, 'I can live without it.'<p> But, WOWWOWWOW--you have produced a beauty. Polenta? I can do this now! Fake pork sausage? Yes! Your book bespeaks a lifetime of gourmet cooking and eating and an incredible translation of this to salt-free reality. I love you, and thanks for phoeneticizing you name, cause when I used to make your Net recipes, I would just attribute them to Dan, the Cookbok Man. All I can say is that I have a huge number of cookbooks but yours sits alone on my counter for my recreational reading pleasure. I do not think I will rest until I have tried each and every recipe and I have no reason to think I will be disappointed. Rock on!

    VERY VERY HELPFUL

    The recipes are fair to really good - the true Positive of this book is the information it gives. Where 'hidden' solium is - definition of terms such as 'low sodium'. There are recipes for holidays and every day; samples for daily menus. If your life has to go from every day foods to lowest to no sodium foods, this book is a great help.

    Excellent Cookbook!!

    There is hope for good food for people on low salt diets. This book is IT! This book also includes the vitamin, mineral, caloric and cholesterol content of all the recipes in case you need to restrict other items in your diet. This has proved very helpful for our particular situation of end stage renal disease. Has helped us prolong the inevitble dialysis with the low salt, low potassim and phosphorus diet restrictions. The recipes are good, and are an excellent guide if you have culinary expereince. The author author offers alternative ingredients.

    Information doctors didn't give me

    Until my father's congestive heart failure condition got so bad in the last year, I did not know that sodium could be so devastating. He was in a special program at the hosptial for a year to try new medications. They mentioned that he really needed to watch his sodium intake, not more then 2-2.5 mg a day. I thought that meant the health food store items and making sure a serving of whatever I bought was not more then 600 mg. I bought this book for my mother to use, but looked thru it myself. I was amazed. The author gave me more information then the doctors did about how to control my dad's intake of sodium. He even gave me product names. He's right it's not just a matter of not using the salt shaker. The next time you go to the grocery store pick up almost any packaged item and read the sodium content. Health food is good but they also use alot of sodium in the least expected places. I'm buying this book for myself now. A peanut butter & jelly sandwich could be someone's total intake of sodium for a day and that does not include the glass of milk you would like to have with it. I would recommend this book to even a 'healthy' person. A side note - the recipes are wonderful.
