    What an easy and fun approach in one’s march towards healthful living!  There isn’t time to be bored with the many eating choices detailed
    throughout “The Low Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan: Meal Plans and Low-Fat Recipes to Improve Heart Health.”  What I appreciate
    above anything is the easy inclusion of food families such as herbs and spices typically bypassed in most government guidelines, given the
    slight inconvenience these often pose to an active, modern lifestyle.

    This book will help you better understand cholesterol, the difference between good and bad, and how to alter your diet to avoid food that may contain high levels of bad cholesterol with a long list of tasty recipes.  The Cholesterol Cookbook Heath Plan is a great guide to understanding what cholesterol does to your body and why it is important to be aware of the food can help increase only good cholesterol.

    I loved this cookbook! It has tons of information about good and bad cholesterol, and gives an eating plan called the 1+1-1, where you add foods low in cholesterol, add foods which increase good cholesterol and decrease inflammation, and subtract foods high in cholesterol or that increase bad cholesterol. The book then takes this plan and applies it to cooking, giving many healthy yet delicious recipes! I would definitely recommend the Beef Stir-Fry with mushrooms and Swiss Chard, and the White Beans with Rosemary and Garlic!

    I had no idea a low cholesterol diet could taste so good!  
    I now feel like I know how to read food labels and make better choices for
    my health!  If I can do this, anyone can.

    We all hear what the media tells us about cholesterol¿it¿s bad!

    We all hear what the media tells us about cholesterol…it’s bad! The Low Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan is much more specific, differentiating between types of cholesterol and explaining which are actually essential to our health and which we can do without. It offers cooking tips, a meal plan, and pages upon pages of tantalizing recipes. The breakfasts, appetizers, entrées, side dishes, and desserts could keep you going for weeks without ever having to repeat, but you may find a favorite long before that!

    I highly recommend The Low-Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan for anyone who wants to eliminate cholesterol from his or her diet and live a healthier lifestyle. This book is split up in two parts. The first half gives the reader some information on cholesterol and some tips when shopping for foods. The second half of the book has a ton of recipes so you can stick to your low cholesterol diet.

    An Excellent Guide to Lowering Cholesterol.

    Eating the right foods is so important to living a healthy lifestyle. This cookbook
    will guide you on how to transition for lowering high cholesterol. It's a simple 14 day meal plan with many recipes for main meals, snacks, and desserts. It also gives you the reasons why these foods are able to lower cholesterol so you have the basis for staying with the meal plan. I have tried the berry smoothie and it was great! I'm making the lental soup today!

    Supporting a healthy heart is a diet that can literally save you

    Supporting a healthy heart is a diet that can literally save your life. This book offers the tools to do just that with a variety of cuisines, some expected, some tantalizing surprises, but each with calorie/fat counts as well as a slew of tips and a two week meal plan. This feels like a complete package.

    This book starts with the basic science of cholesterol and ends


    This book starts with the basic science of cholesterol and ends with a host of recipes. I learned, for example that your liver produces 90% of the cholesterol that's in your body! I knew that there were certain fats that you need in your body, but the intro even explains how some of those fats help combat cholesterol!
    The book's main guide is the "1 + 1 - 1 Eating Plan." Basically, you add foods that are low in cholesterol, increase good cholesterol and decrease inflammation. You diminish foods that are high in cholesterol and that increase bad cholesterol." I have a raging sweet-tooth and was particularly excited about all the options in the desert section!

    The Low Cholesterol Cookbook is one of the best I have seen to date. It not only gives you the recipes you need for your daily intake (in the form of a 14 day planner) but it also tells you how to incorporate it into your daily lifestyle from now on. Super simple and the recipes are delicious.

    My cholesterol has been rising for years. I've been growing increasingly concerned but am resistant to suggestions on taking Lipitor. The Low-Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan showed me that I can get my cholesterol under control through proper diet. The eating plan the book describes helps me know exactly what foods to eat, and the two-week meal plan equips me with the knowledge I need to create daily menus that reduce my cholesterol and yet let me continue eating great-tasting food!

    If you're like me, you have a lot of cookbooks around for different types of entertaining, baking, or specialty meals.  As my friends get older, more of them are concerned about maintaining a healthy diet while not becoming obsessive about the foods we can't eat anymore.  This cookbook begins with lots of great, factual information about diet and cholesterol, then goes on to offer hints to stay our healthiest without feeling deprived.  The recipes were varied and outstanding—full of flavorful food choices that don't require a ton of specialty shopping.   I've never seen a healthy recipe book before that offered options for potato chips or tuna noodle casserole.  In here, you'll also find breakfast breads and muffins you won't have to choke down, wonderful party dips you can serve without apology, and even glorious meats like beef and bacon!

    The recipes in this book are delicious. My favorite is the almond butter and berry version of traditional peanut butter and jelly, which scored big in my family of critics. But I wished it had a shopping list, and although the general overview of cholesterol’s impact on your health was really informative it was also a bit boring. Overall though, I think this is a great ‘go to’ book for good, healthy recipes.

    Great recipes and a two week meal plan to boot! The 1+1-1 approach is innovative because it allows you to make easy substitutions that allow you to reduce your cholesterol without sacrificing some of the foods you love. I can't wait to try out the applesauce substitution in my favorite spice cake recipe. It's a great way to kickstart a new health plan.
