Recipe Book to lower fat and cholesterol
on August 23, 2014
This recipe book has some good information on health facts from calories to a food pyramid, talks about dietary guidelines and nutrition facts which I like. It also has menus in here that can help you with diets for Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. Each recipe tells you the nutrition information and calories and at the back of the book it has the calorie, fat and cholesterol content of selected food and a substitution chart and more. All that I liked.
The recipes are not written that well they list out the ingredients you add and some writing on the side that really does not step you through how to add the ingredient. I made the Campfire Mesquite Beef & Bean recipe which I think it required too much water to be added, the taste was really good but it was just not as thick as I felt it should be so next time I will be reducing the water to add and see if it turns out better.
I would say if your a good cook and just need some recipes to help you make dishes to help you reduce fat and lower your cholesterol and you don't need a lot of direction this book would work. If you need step by step instructions along with pictures this book is not for you. It only has some pictures, but it does have some good information.
