Betty Crocker's Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cooking Today (Betty Crocker Cooking) Hardcover – February 17, 2000

If you are NOT into baking or cooking with products like Bisquick, margarine, instant pudding mix, frozen fat-free whipped topping mix (Dream Whip), refrigerated hash browns from a bag and in general all forms of fat free dairy products and canned vegetables, seasoning mixes, bottled dressings, and one minute rice, you may want to rethink ordering this book.
To give credit, the few recipes that include lentils, legume and grains, like Mushroom-Curry Bulgur, Cheesy Soy Burgers and Indian Lentils and Rice seem to be simply prepared and hearty.
This also is not a book to buy if you are looking to boost your fiber intake (daily recommendations are 35g a day of fiber). I have been advised by my physician that increasing one's daily fiber intake can reduce cholesterol by as much as 15%. With the exception of the few recipes that include beans (as I mentioned above), many of the servings in the book list no more than 6 grams of fiber, most are only 2 or 3 grams per serving.
After perusing the book, I opted to return it, unused.
As an example of the simplicity: Mushroom & Mozzerella Risotto (Prep=10 min, Cook=35 min), Country Turkey Stroganoff (Prep=10 min, Cook=15 min), and Chicken & Cornbread Stuffing Casserole (Prep=15, Cook=15).
Great tasting recipes, great variety, easy to make!
Just tried the chocolate brownies and they are wonderful!!! They definitely don't taste low calorie and low cholesterol!
Each recipe is listed as being either Low Fat, Low Cholesterol, and/or Low Calorie so no matter what your diet needs you'll find recipes you love. Most of the recipes are low in all 3 areas, even the desserts!!!
This book is worth it for the nutritional information alone but please make sure and try the chocolate brownies!!!
The book categorizes all of the recipes with "low calorie" "low fat" and "low cholesterol." While not every recipe is all three there is enough variety that if you're in the mood for a little cholesterol, there's a recipe that's low cal and low fat to satisfy you (and vice-versa). It also gives you pictuers for things you're not exactly sure about -- like just how peaked the egg whites need to be when making meringue.
