Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook
American Heart Association
This is the fifth edition of the heart healthy cookbook put out by the American Heart Association. It is filled with more than 200 recipes that are heart healthy. But it also provides information about the risks of heart disease, ways eat out healthfully, and what foods to look for or avoid.
The print is smaller than the cookbooks I usually use and the book is heavy with light weight paper. This allows for quite a bit of information and recipes to be packed into the book. It does, however, make it more difficult to use, in my opinion. There aren't any pictures or color inside the book. I was impressed with the amount and content of advice given. The recipes were simple and easy to make, the ingredients are the ones that can be found readily in any grocery store. Another plus was all of the nutritional information provided with each recipe. This would be helpful for anyone following a diet or trying to keep track of calories. Overall, this is a cookbook that I would recommend for its amount of easy to make recipes, helpful information, and nutritional information provided.
I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
