Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This 25th-anniversary edition of the classic, bestselling cookbook contains 600 heart-healthy recipes, 150 of them brand-new. The book has been updated to reflect the use of nonfat and low-fat ingredients that didn't exist just a few years ago. Recipes include appetizers, snacks, beverages, soups, salads, entrées (seafood, poultry, meat, vegetarian), vegetables, side dishes, sauces, breads, breakfasts, and, of course, desserts. Many are healthier versions of old favorites--such as Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken à la King, Sweet and Sour Pork, Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Devil's Food Cake, and Chocolate Chip Cookies--with some new entries that reflect modern eating trends, like Portobello Mushroom Wrap with Yogurt Curry Sauce, Pad Thai, Curried Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, and Artichoke and Chick-Pea Pilaf. Whether you want a quick meal, a nutritious dinner the whole family will enjoy, or a festive entrée to impress guests, this book has an array of choices.

Most recipes reflect AHA guidelines: no more than 30 percent total fat, 8 to 10 percent saturated fat, less than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day; plenty of vegetables and grains; and moderate sugar and sodium. Some recipes are higher in fat, but you balance those with lower-fat recipes on other days of the week. Nutritional information includes calories, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, fat (total, saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated), fiber, and sodium. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

This perennial no-nonsense favorite, from an authoritative source, serves up a recipe on almost each of its many pages. From simple Beef Broth and Chicken Broth to Picante Shrimp with Broccoli and other complex, tasty dishes, the AHA has found a balance between health and palette that keeps readers coming back for each new edition. Each recipe comes with a breakdown of calories, protein content, carbohydrates, cholesterol, fats (broken down by saturated, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated) and sodium content, along with a table of dietary exchange. Few readers would expect Stacked Sausage and Eggs or Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake to be among the offerings here, but they are, along with the more expected Sole with Parsley and Mint or Whole-Wheat Apricot Bread. The book’s simple layout and directions make the path from preparation to table seem straight and easy. Striking such balances at every turn, this book remains a basic in many heart-conscious kitchens.

Last February 1999 I was hospitalized for several weeks with a heart problem. After I was discharged I knew I had to do something about my weight. I purchased the New American Heart Association Cookbook and changed my eating habits. Using the recipes from this cookbook, along with an excellent walking program, I have lost almost 50 pounds between the end of February 1999 and August 1999. There are way too many good recipes for me to list, but several of my favorites are: Chicken Fajitas (I use the low-fat tortilla wrappers that you can find in any store), Crispy Baked Chicken, Asian Grilled Chicken and Vegetarian Chili. The best recommendation I can make for this book is to tell you that my doctor now tells me that I have a very healthy heart and I sincerely believe that I owe it to my walking program and the excellent recipes from The New American Heart Association Cookbook.

My wife and I ordered this cookbook as soon as I was released from the hospital. I had had a heart attack at age 58, and healthier eating--low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-sodium, smaller portions--was on the menu. It has now been more than six weeks, and we have eaten about 90 percent of our meals from this book. People ask me, "what do you miss most?" and I have nothing to say. The recipes have yielded such tasty meals that I truly never think about the fact that I'm not getting the salt or fat I was so used to.

I recommend this book to anyone who needs or wants to eat healthy food. My wife did not have a heart attack, but she has chosen to eat exactly what I eat (and is losing weight, as I am, because of it) and is enjoying the food every bit as much as I am.

Get this cookbook as soon as you can.

This book contains many delicious recipes that are simple to make. Moreover, there is a wonderful selection of appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, vegetable dishes, breads and desserts. A bountiful array of fruits and vegetables are featured in each recipe category. As a clinical nutritionist, I have high regard for a cookbook that presents easy to prepare, heart healthy recipes that use many different foods thereby allowing people to enjoy a wide variety of foods in their diet. I encourage readers to explore a most impressive compilation of healthy and tasty recipes. This cookbook will effectively promote adherence to contemporary dietary recommendations and, thus, help lower the incidence of coronary disease. A wonderful virtue of the many recipes is enjoyable eating and, at the same time, heart health!

When a heart important to my heart was told by his doctor that he has high blood pressure, my own went up. All priorities suddenly shift, and you realize there is nothing but nothing more important than the good health of those that you love. I immediately went on a hunt for a cookbook that would satisfy the palate but also keep us heart-healthy. I quickly came across this cookbook. What better sense than looking to an association that deals specifically with the health of the heart? Yes, but.... what about taste? A good diet is only as good as the tingle of the tastebud; it won't do you any good at all if you don't eat what's good for you.
I've made meals from most all of the sections in this cookbook. Fish, poultry, vegetables, even dipped into the desserts. We have both been pleased with the tasteful results. Low on salt and fat, but high on flavor. Good sense paired with good food - that works! From chicken with broccoli and mushrooms in a creamy sauce, to zucchini stuffed with spicy vegetables, to a rice pudding that was all comfort food, we did not miss what was missing: that nasty stuff that clogs arteries and hammers the heart and adds the slops to the waistline. My only negative is purely an esthetic one... I love to see a photo of what I am about to prepare for the first time. No photos here. But that's a small matter and not enough to keep me from going back to this cookbook again and again.
Best of all? My sweetheart is a healthy heart. Blood pressure is right where it belongs.
Bon appetit!

This is the best book for I have used when trying to cook for a healthy heart. There are thousands of recipes to chose from, easy to elaborate. The entrees are well seasoned, and the instructions are very easy to follow. I had the old version, and this one is 100% better. I recommend it to anyone who is trying to eat healthier.

This cookbook is several inches thick and does not have pictures. Please don't let that discourage you. If you're serious about healthy, heart-friendly cooking, this is the cookbook you need. I'm an experienced cook and have tons of cookbooks, but I'm turning more and more to this "all-in-one" cookbook that I can trust to have a healthy recipe for just about anything I have a taste for that day/week. You will SO appreciate that they give heart-healthy recipes for "basics" (gravies, sauces, basic breads, basic salads, etc.). This morning I whipped up a quick bowl of tuna salad to have for my lunch today. It's the best tuna salad I've ever made (and the healthiest), made with light mayo/nonfat yogurt, chopped tomatoes and green onions, cilantro, and lemon zest. There are hundreds of interesting entree recipes, mostly using ingredients you'll already have on your shelves. When "special" ingredients are called for, the book often gives a more common substitution - but do yourself a huge favor and stock your pantry with as many special ingredients as you can and keep your fridge stocked with lots of fresh produce. I've found that the key to success in lowfat cooking is to be prepared to jazz up recipes with spices and various bottled items without having to run to the grocery store. Also, keep citrus on hand - lemons and limes are called for in many heart-friendly recipes and completely transform some foods (like the lemon zest in the tuna salad). Some of the recipe introductions also tell you how you can use the leftovers in another recipe - Sweet-Spice Glazed Chicken can become Island Chicken Salad with Mint later in the week. For a busy Mom who doesn't want to always serve the same old boring meals to my family, those suggestions are helpful. It saves time hunting thru cookbooks and simplifies my grocery shopping. If you're serious about cooking more healthfully, you'll be happy you got this book!
