Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Interesting foods prepared the low fat, cholesterol, sodium, and sugar way were the topic of Roth's Deliciously Low ( LJ 11/15/83), and she has used those same guidelines for this bookbut with the convenience of faster preparation and cooking times. Of the over 300 recipes included, one-half require only 30 minutes to prepare and many can be cooked in a microwave oven. There is a complete selection of recipes from appetizers to desserts, each with a complete calorie, protein, fat, carbohydrate, fiber, cholesterol, and sodium count but without the information about vitamins and minerals which appeared in the earlier book. With the current emphasis on healthy cooking, there is still room for another well prepared book like this. Recommended. Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.

My mother used this book and two others by Harriet Roth to help my father lower his cholesterol four years ago. My son was three then, and he loved the food, too. Lots of tasty recipes in Roth's books, along with some interesting commentary and common sense about eating and preparing food. Some of the recipes can be pretty labor intensive, especially for the two week diet that helps dramatically lower your cholesterol, but it does work - my father's level dropped significantly in that two weeks, and he lost 10 pounds, too.

I ran across this book in a used bookstore and thought, "$4, no big deal." I'm currently ordering it for my family for Christmas. I'm not much of a cookbook reader yet I find myself picking this book up as I head to the bathroom for a long soak in the tub.
I've tried a handful of dishes and have been pleased with each creation. In fact, the left overs I bring to work result in comments such as, "what smells so good?" I love admitting I'm the humble (yeah, right!) cook.
One draw back has been that I didn't have many of the spices and grains as staples in my kitchen which has resulted in a bit of an investment. Additionally, some of the items I've never seen, tasted or heard of and I find myself frustrated as I comb the shelves of the whole foods store. But, I don't want to discount the sense of accomplishment when I do find an item. And, I must remember that all adventures take a bit of work.
If you are looking for a cookbook that will excite your taste buds, support a healthy life and spark your creativity, this is the book for you.

I've recommended this book to many people and I've also given the book as a present on various occasions (pregnancy, weddings etc...). The author presents easy to follow recipes that are as tasty as they are healthy!
I'm sorry that it's only available via used book sources (but at least it's still available). I've since moved to a vegetarian diet and can adapt many of the recipes to my current standards.
Excellent investment!

I find this an excellent book of recipes that take very little time. They are not only healthy, but tastier than most of my other recipes. I have been losing weight and eating great food following this cookbook - it is also easy to use if you are following the zone diet, or the Atkins diet (just add more oil), fits well into low fat diets as well.

Bought this after my husband had a heart-attack at 41 years old. He was determined to eat better with a low fat, low sodium diet so I went searching for cookbooks with recipes I would actually make...no weird ingredients or long preparation. I like this one very much as well as the other one by Plume.

I found this book at a salvation army store! paid 90 cents for it. I was very happily surprised about the great ideas in this book. Im already following a pretty healthy diet but need some new ideas to keep me going. A friend who is trying to start eating healthier saw me reading it in the train. She has to eat low sodium and low sugar as she has a heart condition as well as high blood preassure. She liked it so much that I decided to get one for her as I could not part with mine. Found it here at a great price. As long as I was paying for shipping bought the deliciously low one as well as it seems that one provides a culinary challenge for when you have more time. Cant wait to get them.

It was easy to read, and simple to follow. I have tried several recipes in the book. Some I like and some I did not care for.
