It is widely recognised that coronary heart disease is largely preventable through good diet and a healthy life-style. Eating for a healthy heart means reducing saturated fat and cholesterol and the recipes in this book have been specially created to provide a wonderful range of dishes for everyday eating. You can use every recipe in confidence that, however delicious-sounding, it is always low in fat, and can safely be served to anyone on a low cholesterol diet. The recipes in the book have been devised with families in mind, and can be cooked with the minimum of fuss. There are traditional dishes cooked with less fat, such as Country Pork with Parsley Cobbler, and Autumn Pheasant, and also lots of new, fresh ideas such as Red Pepper Soup with Lime, and Oaty Herrings with Red Salsa, that will surely become firm family favourites. There are dishes that are perfect for mid-week meals, such as Tuna and Corn Fish Cakes, and Caribbean Chicken Kebabs. The book also includes more sumptuous recipes for a supper or dinner party, such as Moroccan Spiced Roast Poussin, and Pan-fried Mediterranean Lamb.
In addition, there's a vegetable section, with suggestions for hot, low fat accompaniments and salads, and plenty of pasta and pizza recipes too. Not only are there recipes for main meals: you will find quick snacks, wonderful puddings, and a superb selection of cakes, breads and biscuits. Every recipe in this outstanding cookbook has at-a-glance nutritional information to help everyone who needs to cook healthy food for themselves or a family. All the recipes use easy-to-find ingredients and store cupboard stand-bys, and there are clear step-by-step pictures to show all the techniques and cooking methods. It has never been easier, or more tempting, to eat both healthy and delicious low fat food!
