SAMPLE RECIPE: Almond Strawberry Parfaits
VEGETARIAN, GLUTEN-FREE // SERVES 4 // PREP TIME: 15 minutes // COOK TIME: 5 minutes
A great make-ahead dessert, this creamy parfait treat is loaded with fiber and vitamin C, even though it’s sweet. Low-fat ricotta and delightfully creamy Greek yogurt add vitamin D, which can help increase HDL cholesterol levels.
1. In a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a glass bowl in the toaster oven, toast the almonds over low heat until they are golden. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
2. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, yogurt, powdered sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the sliced strawberries, jam, and balsamic vinegar, and mix gently.
4. Make the parfaits by layering the ricotta mixture and the strawberry mixture into 4 parfait or wine glasses.
5. Top each glass with the toasted almonds, and serve. You can make this recipe ahead of time and chill it up to 3 hours.

“For anyone who wants to lower their cholesterol, I highly recommend The 30-Minute Low-Cholesterol Cookbook. Karen Swanson’s explanation of the cholesterol-diet connection is comprehensive and easy-to-understand. And the low-cholesterol eating principles in this book are in line with advice I give patients every day.”―Jill Denowitz, MD, diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine
“Diet, along with exercise and medication, is a critical component to maintaining cardiovascular health or recovering from a cardiovascular event. At times, the science of nutritional health can be overwhelming to patients and their families, and even the best intentioned can struggle to eat correctly. In The 30-Minute Low-Cholesterol Cookbook, Karen Swanson distills the science of cardiovascular nutrition into an easy to understand summary―which is paired with healthy, nutritious recipes that anyone can prepare so they can reduce their risk of heart disease.”―Jared G. Selter, MD, FACC, fellow of the American College of Cardiology
“I’m always looking for fast, tasty recipes for my family that might give us an option beyond red meat. I came across this book and have found that the focus on lean meats, fish, and chicken as proteins, balanced with lots of vegetables (which I love), give me options for the balanced dinners I'm always trying to figure out―in the very limited time I have to prepare them!”―Kathleen F.
