Overview

Ranked as the #1 heart hospital in America eleven years running by U.S. News & World Report, Cleveland Clinic is also world-renowned for its life-saving medical breakthroughs, including bypass surgery. The hospital performs more open-heart surgeries and transplants than any other hospital in America. Now, emphasizing prevention, it has teamed with cookbook authors Bonnie Sanders Polin and Frances Towner Giedt to create the most complete and easy-to-follow plan yet for preventing heart disease: Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook.

Polin and Giedt have developed outstanding recipes that taste too good to be good for you (but are), ranging from Cajun Grilled Shrimp with Fresh Pineapple Salsa to Chipotle Chicken and Corn Tamale Pies, All-American Meatloaf, and even New York-Style Cheesecake. The authors also provide a week's worth of menus for each of three caloric plans to take the guesswork out of eating from morning to night.

With this guide handy, there’s no irksome hunt for answers to heart-related diet and fitness questions. Just turn the pages to find:

• How many eggs can be safely consumed per week

• Lists of foods rich in omega-3 oils and tips on avoiding mercury in fish

• Ideas for healthy snacks under 200 calories

• Strategies for eating out

• Why fiber is the key to good nutrition

• How to choose the healthiest protein–and the facts on soy

• The latest findings on alcohol

• How using a pedometer can keep you out of a gym

• How to calculate a healthy body weight

• How to keep kids fit and cope with finicky eating habits


Backed by the reputation of Cleveland Clinic, this all-in-one guide is the easy, enjoyable way for Americans to care for their hearts and live longer, healthier lives.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Who better to write a heart-healthy lifestyle guide and cookbook than the cardiac wizards at Cleveland Clinic? For 11 years running, this prestigious institution has been ranked as No. 1 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. This cookbook contains scores of tempting heart-healthy recipes and a sample week's worth of menus for each of three caloric plans. In addition to all these inviting goodies, the 384 pages contain lifestyle tips aplenty. They cover everything from foods rich in omega-3 oils and strategies for eating out to facts on fiber and alcohol and secrets to keeping even finicky kids on track for health. The all-in-one guide your family needs.
Publishers Weekly
Though they haven't unearthed any groundbreaking information, the authors-along with experts from the heart hospital the U.S. News & World Report ranks as number one in the U.S.-provide a comprehensive and straightforward heart health manual and recipe collection. The first section is all about lifestyle, covering such topics as risk factors for heart disease, dietary habits and managing stress. Polin and Giedt, specialists at the Cleveland Clinic, provide the recipes, which account for the majority of this volume; they aren't particularly cutting edge, but they're easy and healthy, feature clear nutrition information and generally contain interesting and sometimes intense flavors. Entries such as Grilled Black Sea Bass over Summer Vegetables with Japanese Dressing; Red Snapper Taco with Mango Salsa; Grilled Chicken Breasts with Warm Balsamic Strawberries; Spicy Black Bean Cakes with Cilantro Yogurt could pass muster at most dinner parties. There are even desserts, including a Luscious New York-Style Cheesecake, which is made with low-fat cottage cheese and a sugar substitute, so while it may not taste quite like the real thing, it does give an option for a creamy sweet treat. Tips for stocking a pantry and suggested shortcuts make the idea of heart healthy cooking doable. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
The Cleveland Clinic has been in the healthy heart business since 1921. This makes two of its specialists, Polin and Giedt (coauthors, The Joslin Diabetes Gourmet Cookbook), qualified to write a guide to staying heart-healthy. Here, they encourage healthy eating and lifestyle choices that not only prevent cardiovascular disease but also promote overall health. Though the book is broken into halves, it may be read in any order. The first half, "Lifestyle Guide," covers various aspects of heart health (e.g., risk factors for cardiovascular disease, body weight, exercise) as well as nutritional advice (e.g., a prescription of fiber, fats, protein). Once the reader understands the science and theory of being heart-healthy, the book's second half, "The Cookbook," provides more than 150 recipes incorporating all these new facts and suggestions. Recipes are broken down by meal, and some have icons identifying them as quick to make, great for children, or suitable for serving at occasions. Recommended for all public libraries with either cookbook or consumer health collections as well as for medical libraries with consumer health collections.-Rachel M.

From the Publisher
“Great advice and sensational recipes in this cooking ‘bible’ can make living healthy and young more likely. That’s because arterial disease is reversible, and that means the recipes for keeping your heart young are in your hands now. (Since arterial youth is a large part of sexual enjoyment, it may even help drive you to the bedroom, for reasons other than sleep.)

If you do not already have heart disease, you’re even luckier, because these are great recipes for those who just want to stay young at heart. You should be the world expert on your body, and this book can help you take control—arteries are important for your memory and all other functions, including avoiding wrinkles. Whether it is an artery to your heart or to your brain or to your skin, the process of aging of the arteries is the same, and its prevention can be facilitated by the right foods.

That’s why you’ll find it worthwhile to buy the Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook today! For yourself and for your friends and loved ones! Giving it will tell the recipients that you love them, and want them to keep or regain their rapture for life.

Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook gets my personal award for a most comprehensive, up-to-date cardiac guide and deliciously perfect heart-healthy cookbook in the world today. But it should. It’s from the heart-care program ranked as the world’s best by US News and World report twelve years in a row. And remember, walk 30 minutes after dinner, no excuses, and tell a supporter you did so! Only then can you go to the bedroom.”

—Michael F. Roizen, MD, author or coauthor of five bestsellers on health including the #1 bestsellers YOU: The Owner’s Manual, and Real Age: Are You as Young as You Can Be?, professor of internal medicine, and anesthesiology at Case Western Reserve University, and devoted cook of recipes in this book.

    Great Book but poorly done for the price

    I have this book as a Nook Book on my Nook Color.The book is great, the material meaningful but the charts have tiny fonts which are very difficult to read. Acceptable in a resurrected PDF file for $0 but not in a book with an after tax cost of $18+. Disappointing in that the reason I use Barnes & Noble for eBooks is their quality control which is usually dependable enough to recommend Barnes ERaders and service without reservation. If this is a publisher problem so note it and only carry it for less or in hard cover or have the publisher correct it.

    excellent information, very comprehensive

    I purchased the book for the recipes as well as the information about heart health. Whereas the information part was excellent and the recipes are also great, it is hard to browse the recipes. They are not categorized in a user-friendly way.
