I checked this out at the library with...apprehension. Upon actually reading the recipes, I have come to the conclusion that many of these recipes sound shockingly good. Glad I checked it out!

Heart disease is a major cause of death among Americans (number one, in fact). As the book makes clear, the good news is that certain steps that an individual takes can measurably accept the odds of suffering from or succumbing to heart disease. One of these is by reducing fat and cholesterol in one's diet.

Some low fat and low cholesterol cooking can be very bland and disappointing. The recipes here tend to be pretty good, providing good taste as well as healthy food.

When you think "low-fat, low-cholesterol", you may think low-flavor, but that is not the case with these recipes from the American Heart Association. This is an excellent cookbook, full of easy and flavorful recipes. There are no pictures of the dishes, but the book layout is very simple and useable.

I'm a downhome cooking kinda girl and a good bit of these recipes were more complex or "upscale" than I prefer. There was a good variety, and a nice amount of recipes for each course of the meal, including dessert. The recipes didn't require tons of ingredients, which sometimes seems to be the case when cutting down on fat or just in general trying to be healthier.

This is a better primer on how to eat right for your cholesterol than a good cookbook. It has some recipes, but most of the book is spent discussing the ins and outs of a diet intended to reduce cholesterol. Though telling me that cocoa powder and unsweetened rhubarb is a fat-free snack under 20 calories is not really a help.
Some good recipes throughout the book, but not enough that I'd want to purchase it. Also, I've seen similar recipes in other cookbooks. I did, however, like that it included information about fat, salt, etc. content, which is particularly helpful if you or someone in your family has special dietary needs.
These recipes are inventive and definitely not boring!
