If you are newly diagnosed with any kind of illness that necessitates a low salt diet - you need this cookbook. He includes complete nutrition information for every recipe (including sodium and potassium).
A few things I really love...you don't have to go out and scour the shelves or order expensive no-salt items online. The spice and sauce sections are WONDERFUL...I've made my own barbecue sauce, mayonnaise (which is simply fantastic with a finely chopped clove of garlic thrown in), chili pepper, and breads.
The whole attitude of the book is that this is someone who's been tinkering around in the kitchen and using his friends and family as sounding boards for what tastes good, and what name-brand food it may taste like. For example, "New Bay" seasoning, the no-salt version of "Old Bay." The introductory paragraphs are great to give a little history of the recipe and how it may differ from the original (like French bread from a bread machine; although it didn't look the same, it tasted terrific and was so easy!).
I haven't tried every recipe by any means, but so far I've had great luck. After spending 2 weeks shopping at every grocery & health food store in town for items on the DASH diet, feeling exhausted and frustrated (who the heck makes low-sodium cottage cheese?!?), this was a breath of fresh air.
I dug out the old bread machine, purchased a food processor, and rediscovered/developed a love of cooking through this book! What originally sounded like a death sentence (BP 183/107) has opened new doors. Quit smoking, started cooking and exercising, BP is now 115/72. Yay!
She likes this cookbook very much. I also looked through it, and like how neatly the recipes are laid out in the book. There are no pictures, but the recipes are very easy to read, and they aren't all crammed onto each page like some cookbooks are. My mother also likes how the author comments about some of the recipes.
I also purchased this cookbook because it looked the best in terms of the recipes we most likely would eat. Some of the other cookbooks have weird ingredients that we would be very unlikely to find or use. We did order some Sodium Free Baking Powder from a health store.
This cookbook has 500 recipes, which is a lot! I thought that since this was a paperback cookbook, it wouldn't be as nice as a spiral bound cookbook, but its weight causes it to lay flat when its opened, or at least most of the middle part of the book.
The author does have his own website with a mailing list which he emails out a newsletter with recipes every now and then. ([...])
This review probably isn't a lot of help, but we do like this cookbook very much which has some nice recipes that actually taste quite good with low sodium.
