Betty Crocker's Low-Fat Low-Cholesterol Cookbook

Book Review
Betty Crocker is on the health bandwagon. Not one for fads, Betty sensibly bases this 175-recipe cookbook on the Food Guide Pyramid guidelines recommended by the American Heart Association and many other medical and nutrition professional organizations. You learn tips for cutting down on fat and cholesterol, understanding the different kinds of fat, and making smart food choices for heart health. The idea is to reduce fat by making ingredient substitutions and small alterations, but not making drastic changes. The recipes are varied and creative and don't resemble "diet food": Ginger Shrimp Kabobs, Vegetable Potstickers, Stuffed Veal Chops with Cider Sauce, Vegetable and Ham Jambalaya, Curried Chicken and Nectarines, Caribbean Fish Salad, and Thai Shrimp and Rice Noodle Nests. The desserts include Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake...

Eater's Choice
Ron Goor

Jan 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ron Goor, a biochemist who has coordinated cholesterol programs at the National Institutes of Health and the Heart Institute, recommends a calorie-based diet in which "sat(urated)-fat" calories account for no more than 10% of the total. The sound advice isn't new, and the charts, graphs, study results and warnings will appeal most to those already converted to low-fat, low-cholesterol eating. Others may be intimidated by the book's intensity. Nancy Goor, who has collaborated on children's books with her husband, contributes low "sat-fat" recipes emphasizing fowl, seafood and vegetables. Some recipes have higher sodium levels than seem necessary but, on the whole, these dishes are a welcome addition to the growing body of low-fat, low-cholesterol dishes. Turkey cutlets with artichoke-cream sauce, vegetable souffle...
