Overview

Are you stressed out over how to feed your family a nutritious meal at the end of a long, busy day without turning to convenience foods or the drive-through? Now, the nation’s most trusted authority on heart-healthy living presents a cookbook bursting with nourishing, flavorful recipes to please the palates of family members of all ages. Since the main dish is usually the starting point of meal planning, more than half the recipes in this book are for entrées.

Here’s how they’re organized:
• Everyday Dinners
• Busy Nights
• Plan-Aheads
• Cook Once, Eat Twice

To help you incorporate additional vegetables, fruits, and grains into your family’s diet, we’ve included Make It a Meal, a special feature that suggests accompaniments–salads and soups, vegetable and grain side dishes, and even desserts–for many of the main dishes.

Shrimp Tacos
Serves 4; 2 tacos per serving
Start to Finish: 25 minutes

Tasty seafood tacos are all the rage, and since you can buy peeled and deveined shrimp either fresh or frozen, these are super-easy to prepare.

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon canola or corn oil
13 to 14 ounces peeled raw shrimp, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
8 6-inch corn tortillas
2 cups shredded lettuce, such as romaine or iceberg
1 small tomato, diced
2 tablespoons sliced black olives

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Add the shrimp to the pan. Sprinkle the chili powder and cumin on the shrimp. Sprinkle with the garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes if using large shrimp, or 2 to 3 minutes if using small, or until the shrimp are pink on the outside, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Using the package directions, warm the tortillas. Put the tortillas on a flat surface. Sprinkle with the lettuce, tomato, and olives. Spoon the sour cream mixture on each. Top with the shrimp. Fold 2 opposite sides of the tortilla toward the center. If you prefer a dramatic presentation instead, place 2 unfolded tacos side by side on a dinner plate. Fold each in half. Push a 6-inch wooden skewer through both tacos near the tops to hold them together. Repeat with the remaining tacos. Your family will be able to remove the skewers easily before eating the tacos.

    I Also Recommend:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cookbook for my low calorie diet!!

    Since the new year began I have decided to FINALLY watch what I eat and go on a low calorie diet. This book has helped me in successfully losing 20 lbs so far! The book has great low calorie meals that actually taste good! I'm a finicky eater and I'm not one to go for tofu, soy, or low fat products. This cook book includes REAL FOOD! Anything that includes low fat ingredients doesn't lack in taste at all!! Every recipe includes nutrition facts and the majority of them include illustrations. I would HIGHLY recommend this cookbook for anyone looking for a healthy diet with low calorie meals!

    Healthy eating by the American Heart Associaton

    My husband had a serious heart attack in Sept. & was told not to eat foods with fat or salt. I am a caterer but did not cook healthy foods for my parties. This cookbook was a great help. Sodium is in everything we eat whether buying it prepared or cooking at home. The recipes are easy to follow & are tasty. One of our favorites is the Shrimp Tacos!
    My husband has since had another serious heart attack & has now had heart surgery. This cookbook is the staple of a longer healthy life.

    Tasty, Healthy Meals

    Every recipe I have made so far from this cookbook has tasted great! It is so nice to really enjoy a healthy meal. I am amazed at how even a simple meal such as a salad with homemade salad dressing can taste so good. I intend to get more cookbooks by the AHA.

    Healthy Family Meals

    I purchased this book for my 20 year old son who is studying to become a physical therapist. He is very health conscious. The illustrations are beautiful. The recipes are good and fairly easy to cook. Each recipe includes a nutrition analysis and includes helpful tips. I like to read cookbooks like other people read novels. This is a great one for your cookbook library. We have made a goal to try at least one new recipe each week.

    more from this reviewer

    Most of us know that we should consume more fruits and vegetable

    Most of us know that we should consume more fruits and vegetables each week, include fish and lean meats in our diet and whole grains, while cutting back on sodium and cholesterol. Yet, at the end of each day, practice just doesn’t come into the picture. Well, here are over one hundred tasty and tempting recipes that won’t strain your budget or lead to exhaustion! Many dishes can be made ahead and simply served when the family has assembled for a meal.

    It’s Greek to Me Chicken, Citrus Tilapia, Easy Stuffed Chicken and Meat Loaf Mud Pies can all be prepared in under thirty minutes. Blueberry-Apple Slushes, Chill-Out Sundae Pie, Asian Vegetable Soup and Ginger-Beef Stir Fry are a colorful feast for the eyes and Chicken Parmesan and Shrimp Tacos give dinner real pizzazz.

    Each recipe is carefully detailed with caloric intake and a breakout of trans fat, sodium, cholesterol, carbs and protein included with each selection. There are also helpful hints on additional items that can be added to make each tasty dish a full meal. Stunning photographs round out this excellent cookbook. I found quite a few ideas in here myself and cannot wait to have my family try some of these recipes.
