I am not the world’s best cook. Ok, in all fairness I should say that I’m just not a very good cook – And cooking healthy is another whole ballgame. After some recent health events in our family, we have been making a concerted effort to prepare meals that are lower in sodium and cholesterol. I knew I was going to need a new cookbook. So I ordered Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook published by the American Heart Association.

Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook

Cooking with low sodium, low cholesterol, healthy fats and fresh ingredients is not something that many of us do on a regular basis. It’s just more convenient to serve a meal that comes out of a box or can. But the more I learn about what is in those boxes, cans and frozen trays, the more I don’t want to serve that to my family.

The classic cookbook for achieving heart health and wellbeing through a diet that is low in cholesterol and saturated fat–updated and revised with 200 recipes (including 50 new to this edition)

Lose the bad fats, but not the flavor.

There are a few things I have learned using this cookbook and throughout this new cooking adventure.

  • Spices can be used instead of salt.
  • Taco sauce is easy to make from scratch and allows you to eliminate most of the sodium.
  • Everything has more sodium than you imagine.  Frozen foods and canned soup are two of the worst culprits.
  • Planning is crucial!

American Heart Association Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook provides the most up-to-date information on heart health and nutrition. Good-for-you food should also be satisfying, and the American Heart Association reveals how easy it is to replace the bad fats in your diet with healthier ones. This classic cookbook offers more than 200 tempting dishes.

We have tried several recipes from the Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook published by the American Heart Association. What I try to do is look through the cookbook each weekend and think about what I have in my freezer. I then plan out the recipes so I will be ready for the new week.

I like the fact that each recipe shows the nutritional value including sodium, cholesterol, calories and carbohydrates. This gives me a great starting place before I begin cooking the recipe so I’ll know whether the recipe is a good fit for our family.
