More About the Author

After living with a congenital heart defect for nearly 30 years, I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure by my doctors in 2006. The ultimate solution to my problem proved to be a heart transplant, but in the meantime, I needed to make significant lifestyle changes. The most important of these was to begin following a low-sodium diet, which I soon realized was a significant challenge.

Early on, all of the reduced-salt recipes I found were difficult to make, contained hard-to- find ingredients, or simply did not taste good. This prompted me to develop my own approach to Breaking the Salt Habit. I succeeded and was able to manage my health effectively and control how I felt each day. In May 2010, I was blessed to receive a new heart and a new start in life. Today, I continue to manage my salt consumption and take excellent care of the heart that was donated to me.

I created this book to help the average American eat more healthy with easy-to-follow, low-sodium recipes. I have taken common recipes and made them more sodium friendly, using ingredients that are readily available. Today it is very difficult to find food with low salt content, and in fact, it can be extremely frustrating at times. I have experimented with many recipes, and after much trial and error, I believe I have created some of the best-tasting, low sodium options you can find.

I hope you enjoy this book but, most of all, I hope you enjoy the recipes you will be sampling! Good luck on becoming healthier and feeling better one meal at a time.

Format: Paperback
I decided to get this book when I found out I have Meniere's. I stumbled on it online and was especially interested when I saw that the author was from my home town. I went to a local bookstore to buy it, but could not find it there. I went to ask the sales lady for assistance, but there was a gentleman already speaking with her. As I waited, I couldn't help but notice that this gentleman had THIS BOOK in his hand! I asked, "Where did you find that??! I came here looking for THAT book!" Turns out it was Erik...the author...and he was speaking to her about getting his book on this bookstore's shelves! He GAVE me the book that he had in his hand, refused to take any money for it, and simply asked me to use the book and give it an honest review. Well...it is wonderful! HONESTLY! I have made MANY recipes from it and have found ALL to be tasty and full of flavor! What an incredible man with such a big heart! I was meant to be there at that moment and to have that book! God bless you, Erik!! You've got a winner here!!

Hopefully this was not the case with others, but when my family member was sent home from the hospital and put on a low sodium diet, i was given a pat on the head by the doctors and was told i would "figure all this all out" on my own.
Now, maybe you know how to cook and take care of a family, a job, a new lifestyle of low sodium cooking, and can do this with a pat on the head, but i could not. I didn't even know how to boil water-i kid you not.
I purchased loads of low sodium cookbooks but being new to the whole low sodium thing(and cooking itself) and not having hours to create ingredients to be USED in the recipe-we are not talking about the recipe itself, it was quite a trying time.
THIS WAS THE BOOK I WISH I HAD IN THE BEGINNING-IF YOU ARE NEW TO LOW SODIUM COOKING, GET THIS BOOK-and no i am not a family member of the author:-)

First of all, depending on your level of expertise in the kitchen, there are hundreds of low sodium cookbooks and as time went on, i have purchased most of them---however-when all this low sodium issue first started-i may as well have been reading another language as i could not find ingredients nor did i know what to do with the fifteen to twenty ingredients that some recipes in other books called for--

This is a small book-you do not have to go to outer mongolia to find an ingredient, the recipes are easy to follow, you don't have to spend an hour looking through an index just to find a potato recipe--it is just a simple, basic book and i highly recommend it! And the recipes taste great!!!

I would like to thank the author for writing it-he saw a need and filled it!

Like many of the reviews I have read by other people on a low sodium diet I also did not know where to turn or what to do in the begining. I have purchased several low sodium cookbooks in the last few months to help me get started. I wish I had purchased this book first. It has been the one that I believe contains the most sensible advice & the easiest to prepare meals that I enjoy making over & over. The recipes call for items that most people already have on hand or that are easily available at most grocery stores. I have learned something new from all of the books I have purchased, but this is the book I refer to most often.
