Book Review
About 60 million Americans have high blood pressure, which increases their risk of heart disease. The two best ways to lower blood pressure without medication are lowering sodium in your diet and controlling your weight. The American Heart Association cookbooks always help you reduce the fat in your diet--now this one helps you reduce the sodium, too.

Don't think that reducing sodium means your food will be boring and tasteless. The American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook shows you how to use herbs, spices, and in some cases, spirits to keep your dishes flavorful. Learn how to make ingredient substitutions so that you can adapt your favorite recipes--"seasoning blends" like Herb Seasoning, Lemon Herb Seasoning, Salad Herb Blend, or Chili Powder Blend instead of salt, for example. The 175 recipes include modifications...

The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook: Hundreds of Favorite Recipes Created to Combat Congestive Heart Failure and Dangerous Hypertension
Donald A. Gazzaniga
0312291647
July 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Even though it's a cookbook, this work reads like high drama: Gazzaniga suffered from heart failure, a condition that can in some cases necessitate a heart transplant; but because he successfully controlled his salt and sodium intake, he has restored his health. Gazzaniga realized that he'd first have to adapt his tastes and cravings to new flavors and textures. Cream, soy sauce, ketchup and commercial breads were just a few things that had to be eliminated, but as he avers, "All is not lost." Gazzaniga bakes all his own breads with a lowest-sodium baking powder, buys no-salt canned goods from the health-food store and has even found an acceptable no-salt ketchup. It may take some extra planning and shopping, but, he promises, readers will find his wide-ranging recipes (Chicken in Almond Sauce, Scampi in Wine,...

From Booklist
People compelled to control their sodium intake will welcome The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Baking Book. Following his earlier cookbook, Donald A. Gazzaniga shows how to ensure that those who can't tolerate sodium can still enjoy flavorful baked goods. Gazzaniga covers both yeast-raised and quick breads. The latter require special sodium-free baking powder to achieve the lowest sodium levels. Garlic-cheese focaccia, French onion bread, and Italian sourdough make for good sandwiches. Sweet breads, including one with oats, dates, and prunes, provide plenty of fiber. Cookie recipes, especially those for biscotti, supply plenty of spicy flavor without compromising on sodium levels. Gazzaniga also shares nutritional information for diabetics, and he further explains how to make his recipes suitable for sugar-restricted...

Get the Salt out: 501 Simple Ways to Cut the Salt out of Any Diet
Ann Louise Gittleman
0517886545
December 1996
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Book title notwithstanding, Gittleman makes clear in her introduction that salt is a necessary part of the human diet. It's the kind of salt and the amount we take in that concerns her--whether it comes from your saltshaker or your bathwater. Organized topically, her 501 "tips" run the gamut from low-salt recipes and the nutritional scoop on transfats and MSG to lessons in label reading. Her brand-specific suggestions will make shopping easier. Cooks, however, will have a harder time, as recipes are scattered through the text, with most chapters containing one or two. Having pen and paper at hand should neatly solve the problem as well as be of value for taking notes on the wealth of concisely delivered information Gittleman provides. The organization may be problematic, but this is both enlightening and practical. ...

Book Description
Perhaps heartbreaking is the wrong word for a very happy event, one that brings tears to your eyes because you know what the alternative would have been. But however you describe it, the letters that Don Gazzaniga finds on his web site ever since his first cookbook was published easily bring tears to the reader's eyes.

"The doctor told him that the very low-sodium diet is the main thing responsible for this success and I couldn't wait to share it with you."

"When I said that your book saved [my husband's] life, I meant it."

That first cookbook was a surprise to medical professionals and their patients alike. Doctors have always believed that no one could ever get below 1500 milligrams of sodium a daily diet.
"Keep it at that level," Don's doctor told the sixty-three-year-old Gazzaniga in...

Prevention's Healthy One-Dish Meals in Minutes: 200 No-Fuss, Low-Fat Recipes for Busy People

Book Review
Prevention's Healthy One-Dish Meals in Minutes delivers on every promise in its lengthy moniker. Hard to believe, but you still need to add a word--delicious. This book is excellent for beginning, unsure, or disorganized cooks, as well as for anyone more experienced and health-conscious. The food is interesting middle-of-the-road fare, mostly using meat, poultry, and seafood in modest 4-ounce portions, and lots of non-fat or reduced-fat products. The Express Recipes, ready in 15 minutes, are amazing. In 20 to 30 minutes, recipes for intelligently updated classics will also win smiles.
