My husband's recent heart attack turned dinnertime into a challenge for me. I love to cook, but now it had to be boring old bland stuff, right? Wrong! This cookbook gives you the recipes for one delicious dish after another. It's a staple now in our house, right up there next to the salmon, blueberries, oats and broccoli.
This book contains information that everyone can use. America is experiencing an epidemic of rotubund proportions. This book helps educate people on how to reduce heart disease and diabetes. It is a useful book as a whole. However, the amount of daily protein that is recommended in the average human diet is, in my opion, a little low. If an athlete uses this book they must adhere to a diet that is more specific for highly active bodies. In all, it is a good book. It has been useful in showing me how to lower my sodium and cholesterol levels; something every American should be doing. I feel better already!
The recipes are great but I was disappointed that there are no pictures! Zucchini Bread is fantastic & only 1 g. of fat!!! Lots of recipes that are tasty but low in fat!
I loved this book! Back in May I made a meal for my in laws wedding anniversary. It was entire meal including desert and through out the entire thing I recieved so many compliments, like 'I didn't know you knew how to cook so well.' It was simple with this book!
when i got the cookbook, i was disappointed because of the pages being papery instead of glossy, and all the photos are all together in the middle of the book. The recipes are common everyday ones , like mexican food, chinese, salads, sandwiches, roast beef. other than the pages getting easily damage, while cooking, it's a good cookbook.
