Overview

As cardiac patients, dieters, and just about anyone interested in maintaining good health can tell you, "fat free" too often means "flavor free." With The Garden Variety Cookbook and The Low-Cholesterol Olive oil cookbook, Sarah Schlesinger proved there's no reason why good food and good diet can't go hand in hand, and in her latest recipe collection she does so again, with distinction.

Overview

As cardiac patients, dieters, and just about anyone interested in maintaining good health can tell you, "fat free" too often means "flavor free." With The Garden Variety Cookbook and The Low-Cholesterol Olive oil cookbook, Sarah Schlesinger proved there's no reason why good food and good diet can't go hand in hand, and in her latest recipe collection she does so again, with distinction.

500 Fat-Free Recipes is the only cookbook to offer convenient, delicious, nonfat recipes each with one gram of fat or less-as well as a complete guide to reducing the fat in your diet. Finally, here's a one-stop resource for healthy eating.

Schlesinger began a dramatic reduction of her family's fat and cholesterol intake ten years ago as part of a program to reverse her husband's chronic heart disease. Finding hundreds of lowfat recipes-but very few nonfat recipes-she began her own culinary experiments. The result is a remarkable collection of dishes utilizing the freshest produce, zesty seasonings, and unusual combinations instead of added fat and fat-laden ingredients. Here is a plethora of prize edibles for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. You'll find Pear-Cinnamon Muffins, Baked French Toast, Spinach Fettucini with ShiitakeTomato Sauce, Red Pepper Mini-Pizzas, Black Bean Lasagna, Cocoa Cake-all with one gram of fat or less. There's even a special section on dressings, sauces, and relishes.

Schlesinger also offers the tools you need to manage daily fat consumption. She explains the role of fat as necessary nutrient and potential health hazard, shows how to estimate how much fat you truly need, and includes tips on how to eat out on a low-fat diet, make the most offrozen meals, season dishes without fat, and shop for nonfat products. A nutritional-content analysis follows each recipe. With Schlesinger's help, you can control the fat in your diet (and still occasionally indulge in the higher-fat foods you crave)

Here are five hundred delectable reasons to get with the program and start to safeguard your family's well-being today. The recipes in 500 Fat-Free Recipes are so good, people won't even suspect they're healthy!

At last, here's a one-stop resource for healthy eating. 500 Fat-Free Recipes is the only cookbook to offer convenient, delicious, nonfat recipes--each with one gram of fat or less--as well as a complete guide to reducing the fat in your diet. The recipes are so good, people won't even suspect they're healthy!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dedicated dieters and recovering cardiac patients are often told to lower fat intake--but few people can concoct imaginative low-fat meals to make the dietary change either permanent or pleasurable. Schlesinger ( The Low Cholesterol Olive Oil Cookbook ) offers a valuable resource to those who wish to reduce fat to 10% of caloric intake. A lengthy introduction supplies details on stocking the pantry, cooking techniques used in recipes, and additional sources for diet-related information. Recipes suited for microwave cookery constitute a welcome chapter. Dishes such as Havana beans with rice and ricotta-apricot toastwiches combine plenty of complex carbohydrates. Perhaps the only problem is that some recipes do not give actual serving sizes in ounce or cup measures: for example, the barley and apple pilaf yields ``6 servings,'' but when divided into sixths, serving sizes looked small indeed. Some of Schlesinger's culinary advice leads novice cooks in the wrong direction: baked goods made without fat do stale more quickly, and for this reason, they should be frozen, not stored in the refrigerator as recommended. But oversights are rare: most of the recipes are healthful and easy to prepare, making this book a good addition to the low-fat bookshelf. (June)
