Overview

This revised and expanded third edition of the American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook is an indispensable resource for sodium-watchers.

The statistics are in—65 million Americans have high blood pressure, and nearly 5 million suffer from congestive heart failure. Whether you have these health problems now or want to avoid having them in the future, keeping your sodium intake low is one of the best ways to help your heart.

The human body requires sodium to function properly, but if you are like most other Americans, you consume about ten times more than you need. If that’s because you think low-sodium food means low flavor, think again! The American Heart Association shows here that a low-salt diet is not only good for you but delicious, too.

Encompassing everything from appetizers and soups to entrées and desserts, the American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook, 3rd Edition, is a wonderful collection of more than 200 scrumptious low-sodium recipes—50 of them brand-new to this edition.

In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Cut the turkey crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.

Turn the turkey and cook for 3 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Transfer the turkey to a serving plate.
Pour the sauce mixture into the skillet. Cook for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the mixture reducesto 2 tablespoons, stirring constantly with a flat spatula.
To serve, drizzle the sauce over the turkey.

    Excellent recipes!

    The recipes in this cookbook use readily-available ingredients in creative ways to produce really delicious gourmet meals! I thought that life was over when my doctor put me on a sodium-restricted diet; I was also starting a weight-reduction diet at the same time and felt like my days of enjoying great food were over. A dear friend gave me this book and I've tried a number of the recipes, all with excellent results. I can prepare meals that I can eat and my family enjoys them, including my very picky 15-year-old daughter!

    Great start.

    I gave this book to my mother in law who needed to revise her diet to one that has lower sodium. She really enjoys this cookbook and has found quite a few recipes so far that she enjoys.
