Review

“Great advice and sensational recipes in this cooking ‘bible’ can make living healthy and young more likely. That’s because arterial disease is reversible, and that means the recipes for keeping your heart young are in your hands now. (Since arterial youth is a large part of sexual enjoyment, it may even help drive you to the bedroom, for reasons other than sleep.)

If you do not already have heart disease, you’re even luckier, because these are great recipes for those who just want to stay young at heart. You should be the world expert on your body, and this book can help you take control—arteries are important for your memory and all other functions, including avoiding wrinkles. Whether it is an artery to your heart or to your brain or to your skin, the process of aging of the arteries is the same, and its prevention can be facilitated by the right foods.

That’s why you’ll find it worthwhile to buy the Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook today! For yourself and for your friends and loved ones! Giving it will tell the recipients that you love them, and want them to keep or regain their rapture for life.

Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook gets my personal award for a most comprehensive, up-to-date cardiac guide and deliciously perfect heart-healthy cookbook in the world today. But it should. It’s from the heart-care program ranked as the world’s best by US News and World report twelve years in a row. And remember, walk 30 minutes after dinner, no excuses, and tell a supporter you did so! Only then can you go to the bedroom.”

These people apparently don't know enough about prevention.

The book is an excellent reference for dietary matters, such as the difference between types of fats, vitamins and minerals for a healthy heart, and the role of fiber.

I bought the Kindle edition, so this may just be a Kindle problem, I'm not sure.

Following our recent stay at the Cleveland Clinic I was impressed by all communications and printed matter coming out of the Clinic. The Cleveland Clinic Cookbook certainly promised to offer a concise roadmap of how to cook heart healthy fare,however, once I began reading and leafing through its contents I was surprised to see that it was not all it was cracked up to be. The first recipe I selected turned out alright, however, the directions were not concise and oddly enough the very pages on which the book is printed are not of good quality so that if you happen to spill something while cooking or even just dampen the page it seeps through (they must have used a light weight paper stock in a move toward economy?) so, to my utter surprise, this book is less than expected. Perhaps it might be wise to skip this volume and search the many other options available for good heart healthy fare....

We really like the Cleveland Clinic's Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook. I got it for our whole family to use because my husband has recently been diagnosed with high cholesterol at the age of 31, a shock to all of us with him being at such a young age.

I remembered recently reading about this cookbook in the Cleveland Clinic's heart surgery ICU after my father's open heart surgery in early August. The recipes are very good and are not too complicated to make. We have enjoyed the recipes and have been surprised at the wide variety of food we can all have in a healthy heart diet. Everyone can benefit from lowering their cholesterol so our whole family including our young children are keeping to this type of diet (a refreshing change from typical kid fare such as mac and cheese and chicken fingers).

The biggest thing that I remember about my father's 6 week stay at the Cleveland Clinic, was how much he enjoyed their food. This cookbook was an easy choice for us because of what my father had to say about the food there. Sadly he passed away 3 weeks after coming home, we are also using this cookbook as a tribute to him.

I received the book from Amazon (THE CLEVELAND CLINIC HEALTHY HEART LIFESTYLE GUIDE AND COOKBOOK) in two days. It was in excellent condition. The package was packed very nicely. Those are the three most important things to me.
No problems with this order at all.

After my husband had a heart attack, I realized that my typical Italian-based meals were not helping him! So I checked out a bunch of "heart healthy" cookbooks from the local library and just started cooking in a whole new way. This cookbook is by far the best one...the first half of the book is informational. It teaches you how to eat, how to live and how to process the entire event of a heart attack! But my favorite part is the recipes - they are truly delicious! As my husband and I say, they aren't just "decent" and "good for a healthy recipe" - they are good enough that you would serve them to friends or at dinner parties! The crucial element is fresh ingredients and lots of vegetables...which we weren't big fans of before but love now! Our faves are the stews - there is a Mexican Barley Risotto that even our three boys eat! We also like the Winter Vegetable Stew served over polenta, and the fish recipes with citrus zest. I've gone through about 30 recipes and only had one dud! I have recommended this book to friends and everyone loved it!
Highly recommend!

I was tuned into this book by an article in Diabetic Living Magazine. The draw was about the 40 heart healthy foods and how to incorporate them into your diet. I tracked down this book. Where else? On Amazon. I ordered it. It arrived just as expected. The book is not a fancy full of photos book. Rather small green type...a little hard to read. But as I review it, I find it has the authority of experience of the Cleveland Clinic and the expertise of authors form the prestigious Joslin Diabetic Center. As a person who is on the edge for diabetes and heart disease, I love to be fully equipped with the best information I can to maintain my current health.
