your good cholesterol and foods to decrease your bad cholesterol. It even
has some tasty sounding recipes for entrees, desserts, sides, etc. However
the recipes are for multiple people (the least is 4 which is good for a family).
Also some recipes are high in sodium while others are not. Lastly if you
are a diabetic, there is no listing on how much sugar is in each item.
Still, worth a read for ideas.
The 1+1-1 meal plan recommends more daily servings of fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts than the FDA minimum amount. These plant based foods have no cholesterol. Omega-3 fats, fiber, Vitamin C, and Selenium are also important in a low cholesterol diet. Use less saturated fats, simple carbohydrates, sugar, and salt. What's a correct serving size? Read labels more carefully. Learn how to make better choices when eating out. Dietary changes will help cholesterol medicine work better, or eliminate the need for it.
There's a 14 day meal plan. Each day consists of: 3 meals, 2 snacks, and dessert. Several of the recipes appear in the cookbook section. All begin with nutritional information. Most won't take long to prepare. However, exact cooking times aren't always given. Some recipes will require using a blender, food processor, or slow cooker. There are substitutions for some commonly used items.
Here is a partial list of the recipes featured.
Breakfast: Blackberry Superfood Smoothie, Silver Dollar Oatmeal Pancakes with Applesauce, Cinammon Walnut Loaf, Whole-Wheat Carrot and Apple Muffins, Maple Granola
Appetizers and Snacks: Whole-Wheat Parmesan Crisps, Salty and Sweet Popcorn Bars, Baked Potato Chips with Creamy Scallion Dip
Soups, Stews, and Chiles: Chilled Gazpacho, Garden Vegetable Soup, Curry Chickpea Stew, Vegetarian Lentil Chili, White Bean Chowder with Cod and Kale
Salads: Marinated Tomato and Cucumber, Curried Couscous and Cranberry, Potato Pesto
Side Dishes: Sugar Snap Peas with Mint and Garlic, Roasted Asparagus with Almond Vinaigrette, Corn on the Cob with Spicy Smoky Butter, Brussels Sprouts with Apples, Guilt-Free French Fries
Entrees: Black Beans and Rice, Beefless Sloppy Joes, Tuna Noodle Casserole, Coconut Fish Sticks with Yogurt Dipping Sauce, Salmon Burgers with Homemade Pickles, Shepherd's Pie, Classic Meatloaf with Ground Chicken
Desserts: Strawberry Sherbet, Almond-Lemon Cookies, Peanut Butter Cups, Flourless Chocolate Cake
This cookbook is very readable in the digital format. Page numbers would have been nice. The advice given here will be very helpful for anyone wanting to have the proper cholesterol level.
There is also a section about drug-interaction information, and you can take some steps to supplement your diet with the foods that the medication may be stripping from your body. This is great if you don't feel well after you take pills, and you feel like the medication may be doing more harm than good.
I also like the fact that this book is focused on a lifestyle change. It focuses on getting just the balance of food, exercise, supplements, sleep and stress relief to make sure that your cholesterol levels remain under control. If you have a family history of heart disease, this is essential. Overall, I give this book 5 stars!
