The New American Heart Association Cookbook

Book Description:  Here is the ultimate resource for anyone looking to improve cardiac health and lose weight, offering 800 recipes--100 all new, 150 refreshed--that cut saturated fat and cholesterol. The American Heart Association's cornerstone cookbook has sold more than three million copies and it's now fully updated and expanded to reflect the association's latest guidelines as well as current tastes, with a fresh focus on quick and easy. This invaluable, one-stop-shopping resource -- including updated heart-health information, strategies and tips for meal planning, shopping, and cooking healthfully -- by the most recognized and respected name in heart health is certain to become a staple in American kitchens.

My Thoughts:  I'm always on the lookout for great cookbooks and now that my husband and I are trying to eat more healthy I thought this cookbook might help us add healthy food to our diet intake.
There are ALOT of recipes...more than 100!  So the possibilities for good food are endless.
The slow cooker recipes look great.  I tried Italian Wedding Soup on page 109.  It was delicious.  A nice Italian flair to our menu.
What I love about this cookbook is that the ingredients are food stuffs that one probably has in one's kitchen cabinet.  All the recipes are fairly simple and easy.
What I didn't like about this cookbook is that there are no pictures of the food.  I like pictures especially after a dish is prepared.  But I can see how adding pictures to this cookbook would make it bigger than the average dictionary.😋
This is a wonderful tool for any kitchen and for those of us who are trying to be heart healthy there are tons of choices so that we need feel deprived.
