My sister swears by this book, so I am going to give it a try for recipes, particularly the Salmon Burgers and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. She made both last night for dinner and I loved both of them. I'd also recommend that you buy a copy of Simple, Healthy and Delicious from Chef Jai Scovers. Chef Jai wrote the weight loss book called The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. That book helped me lose 12 pounds in the last couple of months and I couldn’t be happier. But, a girl has got to eat. I just want to do it healthier every chance that I get. With, Simple, Healthy & Delicious, after a few days of using this cookbook, I have to admit that this is by far the best cookbook that I have ever used! It is just so well put together. The recipes are easy to follow with readily available ingredients often with a healthier twist, like Cauliflower Mac N’ Cheese. I am already getting rave reviews wherever I serve something from it. My favorites so far are the Lemon Shallot Scallops, the Ham & Herb Cheese and the Pound Cake French Toast. Talk about having your cake and eating it too! Well done! I look forward to more cookbooks from Chef Jai Scovers!

Having read many well-conceived books treating health issues and treatment with diet, I give high marks here. The diet plan is based on the principle of “1 + 1 – 1.” Add more low cholesterol foods, eat more foods that increase good HDL cholesterol and reduce arterial inflammation, and subtract foods high in cholesterol and that add LDL. Revamping your diet may increase benefit from, or even better, eliminate need for cholesterol medications. Clarity and simplicity in page design and typography make the excellent recipes easy to follow.

A healthy heart is essential to a healthy life.  Our heart is the machine that operates our arteries and veins, wires that stretch into every single part of our being.  Unfortunately for our hearts, cholesterol lurks in many foods, posing a dangerous health risk.  The Low Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan is here to save the day though, providing tons of delicious recipes to keep your heart is tip-top shape.

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.      Trish Wootten, CHHC, AADP DC Nutrition Examiner

Reading this book made me want to know more, and how can I be sure I as well as my family live a long time. I am a health nut, but this book pointed out things that I had no clue were high in cholesterol like shrimp, crab, and lobster all my favorites. Choosing portions wisely is as important as food choices. The examples that were given had me on the internet looking for the  supplements that will support lowering cholesterol. I never heard of free range chicken, but I’m going to find one if it will help my cholesterol levels.

Genetically, I have high cholesterol, but my doctor says it is possible to lower it regardless with the right diet, so I thought I would try this book. I really liked that it clearly stated what foods have “bad” cholesterol and “good”. It also gave lists of foods to make your good cholesterol higher-the recipes were very easy, but a little on the dull side because the same ingredients were used in a lot of the recipes.

My kids are going to be hungry. They will not eat the Creamy Cauliflower and Red Pepper Soup or Roasted Eggplant Caponata. However, this cookbook is perfect for more mature palettes. And don’t skip the first four chapters. There is a wealth of easily digestible (no pun intended) material I found highly interesting.

The book’s really well-thought-out. It starts with some key tips – namely, what you can eat! I was afraid to see what in my kitchen I’d have to throw away. This makes use of most of it. To find recipes that use goat cheese? Didn’t see that coming. Great stuff.

This is a fabulous resource – with tons of healthy, delicious recipes – whether you require a low cholesterol diet or not!  This cookbook offers a lot of healthy substitution ideas that make customizing the recipes (in the book or from your own repertoire) to suit your taste quick and simple… and heart healthy!

Low Cholesterol Cookbook : Everything from full course entrees to snacks Most people love to snack between meals. If you're like me, there is a favorite snack: in my case, potato chips. Taste so good, but will send your cholesterol level off the (doctor's) chart. This is where the Low Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan comes in. Its' recipe for potato chips is a must have! First, you get some fresh sliced potatoes dipped in olive oil, seasoned with black pepper, placing potatoes on a flat cookie sheet to bake for 25 minutes. There is a definite health benefit because anytime you bake foods, as opposed to frying , much of the nutrients are still there which are lost when frying. Also, there is no excess fats or oils involved, thus lowering the cholesterol level in the foods. If you are a potato chip connoisseur you can eat as many of the delicious potato chips as you want without the worry of consuming too much bad cholesterol. The Low Cholesterol Cookbook & Health Plan is an excellent choice for anyone who has high cholesterol, but still shows you how to prepare and enjoy many of your favorite dishes with more heart healthy ingredients (IE; whole wheat flour for white flour; maple syrup for white sugar; chicken or turkey in place of beef, etc.):

This cookbook was very informative.  I like the way it established a 1+1-1 plan for transitioning your diet to remove the “bad” cholesterol.  It includes important information about cholesterol and health. The conclusion contains thorough citations to back it up the information.  I am looking forward to making the Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes, Meatloaf with Ground Chicken, and Homemade Fudge Pops.

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.

There’s good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. There’s trans-fat and saturated fat. The more we learn, the more confused we become. Wait. Thoroughly-researched and prestigious endorsements of low cholesterol diets and recipes’ to the rescue! The Low Cholesterol Cookbook is an excellent and timely path to healthy hearts and unclogged arteries. A must read!
MadisonS More than 1 year ago
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!

This book is a great starting point for those new to eating healthy. It provides a basic outline of nutrients and how they affect the body. The recipes are fairly basic, with simple to find and basic ingredients. There is also a well-outlined and diverse meal plan for those looking for help getting organized.

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 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.

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 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.
MacWriterMC More than 1 year ago
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.
veggieman More than 1 year ago
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!

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!

This low-cholesterol cookbook is exactly what it says in the title, a "Health Plan." I really think anyone who is thoughtful about their health, especially heart health, could not only benefit, but would enjoy this book and it's recipes. It explains the differences between good and bad cholesterol and what you can do and eat to take advantage of the good, and get rid of the bad.
