Because more people in developed countries are dying from heart disease than from any other cause, there has never been a greater need for the Healthy Heart Cookbook. Authoritative and practical, this book will help people take control of the health of their hearts.
Understanding Heart Disease: Written in association with the American College of Physicians, the Healthy Heart Cookbook described the connection between heart disease and diet and explains why such foods such as garlic, oats, fatty fish, and fruits and vegetables protect the heart. It shows how to plan menus to achieve a well-balanced, low-fat diet, and explains the benefits of healthy cooking techniques such as searing and steaming. In addition, it explains how the heart works and the nature of heart disease.
Delicious Recipes: Award-winning cookbook writer Oded Schwartz has devised over 100 appetizing recipes that prove that a diet for a healthy can taste delicious and meet the requirements of someone with heart disease. All recipes have been reviewed by the American College of Physicians and include tasty delights such as Broiled Mackerel with Citrus Salsa, Roast Garlic and Pepper Salad, and Peach and Ginger Meringue Pie.
Beautifully illustrated, the Healthy Heart Cookbook shows that living with a heart condition is no reason to exclude delicious food from your diet.
