Review: Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook: Delicious Recipes to Help Reduce Bad Fats and Lower Your Cholesterol, 5th Edition
Robin P. Loveman, Senior Editor
I love to browse cookbooks, look for new ideas, and read some of the extra narratives related to those recipes. This particular cookbook caught my eye because I had purchased one of the earlier versions and since misplaced it. The older one had some good stuff in it, but this one is like a while new world. I can have tacos, and crepes, and all sorts of yummy desserts now like a brulee. Vegetables and fruit are still musts, but in new ways. Green beans and spinach are still out there, but so are edamame and artichokes. There are sauces to drizzle over nearly any category of food to enhance the flavors and appearance. This is not the regimented cookbook I remember from before. Beef is back and more recipes for a larger variety of seafood, too. As always the nutritional information follows the recipe. So yes, I’m already happy with this edition. Easier to stay on track if the food is tasty. So, to that long list of folks that worked on this edition I say, “Thank you!”
The advice offered is more helpful and much easier to understand. My favorite part is a shopping list found in the back that helps keep your shelves stocked with supplies. Another item I found useful is the portion size estimator that compares a portion with everyday articles like baseballs, dice, and even hockey pucks. Portion size creep is my favorite way to add to my weight. A good review once in a while is very needed in my case. There’s plenty more advise and suggestions within this cookbook.
This cookbook makes eating healthier much more attractive than ever before just by allowing some new flavor and variety back into a dietary plan. I like it and think you will, too.
I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
