Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The introduction explains that scientists have identified 40 foods that can help reduce, prevent, and even reverse heart disease. Those 40 foods—among them chocolate, red wine, tropical fruits, almonds and avocados—are the focus of this health-conscious cookbook. All 175 recipes include one or more of them, and the first section details, food by food, in easily understandable (even occasionally funny) language, why they're good for you. The recipes are accessible and appealing, if not especially original. The superstar ingredients are marked with a heart symbol; key nutritional information accompanies each entry. The full spectrum of basic food genres is covered, from breakfast foods like Broccoli and Cheese Strata (featuring egg whites), Asparagus Frittata (using egg substitute) and Green Tea–Oatmeal Pancakes to desserts such as Orange Pistachio Cake and an antioxidant-rich but still decadent Flourless Chocolate Cake. In between are plenty of soups, salads (including an elegant Grape and Fennel Salad), vegetable side dishes, grains, beans, pasta and main courses such as Sesame Salmon with Spicy Cucumber Salad, Oven-Fried Fish and Chips, Revamped Chicken Potpie and Make-Over Veal Marsala. The variety and simplicity make this a reliable—and lighthearted—resource for anyone trying to fight or prevent heart trouble. (Feb.)

Having devoured the book page by page, I can only say it is a work of love for all women who are faced with lifestyle changes associated with heart disease or have risk factors associated with heart disease. It takes what we all know (or think we knew!) and translates it into easy to follow guidelines, great recipes, and foods that we can reach for when we shop for ourselves and our families. Beyond the ease of use, the authors' devotion to simplifying the tricky world of healthy eating into a useful resource is amazing! I find myself reaching for it not only when I cook, but when I'm making up a shopping list. I love the fact that each recipe shows you how many heart-healthy foods you are taking in -- very motivating!

I love the recipes. I love the witty and informative notes at the bottom of the page that tell me why something is good for me. It is like having a personal chef and my cardiologist next to me talking me through what I need to keep heart healthy. Thanks,I feel better already!

I just recieved this cookbook and love it. The first part has great information on 40 heart healthy foods and the second part uses these foods in tasty recipes. There are many tips listed throughout the book that I have found helpful in understanding healthy food preparation. I have made several dishes including; chili, warm kale salad, applesauce oatmeal cookies, tofu mayonnaise... all were delicious.
It feels good preparing dishes for my family that are heart healthy and yummy at the same time. There is nothing in this cookbook that you will feel guilty about eating, and it tastes good too, imagine that!

I just received a copy of this book and I am very excited! As a woman living with heart disease and a cookbook fanatic it is truly the answer to my prayers for a heart healthy cookbook that is informative, knowledgable, fun and beautiful to look at...The recipes are simple enough for everyday, but tasty and beautiful enough for any special occasion. The list of heart healthy foods is a very helpful tool for creating new recipes and updating old ones. The heart health information at the front of the book is concise, up to date and easy to comprehend....I recommend this cookbook for anyone who cares about treating their families or themselves to innovative, tasty meals and healthy hearts in the process! Give it to a friend for Heart Month or to Mom's on Mother's day, but don't lend out yours..you won't get it back!

Here's an easy to read, "real people" cookbook. Just buy the 40 heart healthy ingredients at the grocery store and start cooking. It also has proven healthy heart information in the first section and tips throughout the recipes. This book should be given to everyone with heart disease. Better yet, every household could use it! As a women with heart disease, I'm always looking for recipes that will be tasty for my entire family and WomenHeart has done it!

Format: Hardcover
Both of my parents have undergone bypass surgery within the past 8 months. It has been very intimidating to read all the information of how to prevent heart disease, especially having to relay the information to my parents. I came across this book last week and love it. Coming from a family that loves to ask questions this book has a lot of answers. I love that the first part of this book thoroughly explains heart disease, prevention, and how certain foods can be beneficial to your heart. It was also a great idea to list the recipes (w/ page numbers) at the end of each 'Heart Healthy Food' description. This book is well organized and makes cooking their recipes along with other heart healthy recipes more attainable.

My friend Suzanne Banfield has done a great service in providing a wonderful new resource for those wishing to find delicious options for heart healthy cooking - that's everyone!! When I saw how cleverly the book was laid out, with the 40 superfoods listed at the beginning along with reasons why they deserve to be listed and associated recipes, I knew this would be a book I would keep on the counter, not on the back shelf. I use it for shopping ideas and a constant reminder for good meal planning. The recipes I've tried are all terrific!!
