Linda starts out the book with a lot of useful information about your health in general. She explains the whole LDL versus HDL cholesterol issues in a very easy-to-understand manner. I also learned about things like homocysteine and triglycerides. Now I can pepper my doctor with some new questions at my next checkup. :)
The good news is that low-cholesterol does not have to mean lower taste. In fact, a lot of the "best foods" that she mentions in the first chapter are delicious (honey, nuts, apples, oatmeal).
Some of my favorite recipes from this cookbook are:
Blueberry-Banana Smoothie (p. 37) -- I bought a small smoothie blender at a local discount store. Now my kids ask for them just about every day! The vanilla yogurt acts as the sweetener in this recipe, so no sugar is needed. I like to buy the huge bags of frozen berries at Costco so I have plenty on hand for these. Really great for the hot weather coming up.
Raisin-Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread (p. 67) -- My kids just love this in the morning.
Pistachio-Crusted Red Snapper (p. 137) -- I use whatever nuts I have onhand for this, and they've all worked out. It's hard to keep the pistachios on hand once my husband finds them! The lemon and orange zest add a very fresh taste.
Spinach-Ricotta Omelet (p. 223) -- We love omelets. The ricotta-Parm mixture is a great addition. I "cheat" and buy the egg whites in the carton so that I don't have to separate the eggs myself.
Arugula Salad with Marinated Mushrooms (p. 228) -- Delicious.Read more ›
