I just found out I have high cholesterol and was upset at the idea of giving up foods that I love to eat. But, this book has recipes for most of my favorite foods. I bought several other low-cholesterol cookbooks, but I use this one the most often. There are recipes for everything and they're easy to do. I would recommend this book to anyone!

OMG, now they're telling us that high cholesterol can lead to Alzheimer's Disease. Time to put away the bad fats and get out Linda's latest cookbook. You may save not only your waistline, but also your brain!! Good grief!

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.

A few months ago I was put on a statin drug for high cholesterol. I was already on a drug for diabetes. I am only 48 and thought this is crazy. I went online to look at cookbooks for both diseases and bought this one. I liked it because it was basic. I had to be careful because some things you can have for one ailment you should not have because of the other. I am also a very picky eater. Within one month and without exercise I was able to knock my numbers in half for both ailments and my triglycerides went to the normal range also. I lost 18 lbs. It was not easy but it was worth it. I am now pill free. Yeah! I will use this book regularly to keep me in tune.

My doctor, as many others have probably also heard, wants me to lower my cholesterol. I read through this whole book for information on what constitutes a low cholesterol diet. I think that I can apply the nutritional guidelines and incorporate some of these recipes to my lifestyle.
