My Thoughts about The American Heart Association Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook :
This low-cholesterol cookbook is a great cookbook designed to get one into healthier eating habits! It is full of amazing recipes you must try! I have been seeking out ways to lose weight lately. I don’t just want to lose weight however, I want to establish an over-all healthier life style. Healthy habits are necessary to lead a good life. I believe this cookbook will help me on this journey.
The low-cholesterol cookbook is designed to reduce bad fats and lower your cholesterol. They actually list a few basic guidelines for an overall healthy eating pattern. This pattern consists of:
- Eating lots of different fruits and vegetables
- Making sure half the grains you eat are whole-grain
- Include fat-free and low-fat dairy products (It’s a sad day to be a cheese lover)
- Eating Fish at least two times a week (this may prove difficult)
This book has lots of recipes that include these guidelines, making it easier to follow. If you can’t eat fish however, an Omega 3 supplement a few times a week may help with this. It’s good to get your vitamins the natural way, but if you find yourself unable to, vitamins can be an alternative route. The Healthy Fats, Low-Cholesterol cookbook includes: dining out strategies, adapting your own recipes, shopping strategies,the science behind their strategies and risk factors of heart disease and strokes. They also include the warning signs of a heart attack and stroke. I believe they give us enough details to be successful on our path to healthy eating. Overall, a great cookbook and you should check it out yourself!
