Review:

This 25th-anniversary edition of the classic, bestselling cookbook contains 600 heart-healthy recipes, 150 of them brand-new. The book has been updated to reflect the use of nonfat and low-fat ingredients that didn't exist just a few years ago. Recipes include appetizers, snacks, beverages, soups, salads, entrées (seafood, poultry, meat, vegetarian), vegetables, side dishes, sauces, breads, breakfasts, and, of course, desserts. Many are healthier versions of old favorites--such as Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken à la King, Sweet and Sour Pork, Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Devil's Food Cake, and Chocolate Chip Cookies--with some new entries that reflect modern eating trends, like Portobello Mushroom Wrap with Yogurt Curry Sauce, Pad Thai, Curried Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, and Artichoke and Chick-Pea Pilaf. Whether you want a quick meal, a nutritious dinner the whole family will enjoy, or a festive entrée to impress guests, this book has an array of choices.

Most recipes reflect AHA guidelines: no more than 30 percent total fat, 8 to 10 percent saturated fat, less than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day; plenty of vegetables and grains; and moderate sugar and sodium. Some recipes are higher in fat, but you balance those with lower-fat recipes on other days of the week. Nutritional information includes calories, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, fat (total, saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated), fiber, and sodium. --Joan Price

From the Inside Flap:

When the American Heart Association, the country's most-trusted authority on heart-healthy living, published the first edition of its cookbook twenty-five years ago, it could hardly have predicted that the book would become a runaway bestseller and set the standard for healthful and delicious eating. To celebrate the book's silver anniversary, the AHA has completely updated and revised this jewel of its renowned cookbook library. This latest edition is a must-have for every chef who wants tasty, good-for-you recipes in step with how we eat today.
      
Each of the more than 600 recipes--including over 150 that are brand-new--has been kitchen-tested for high flavor and ease of preparation.
        
Dishes such as Risotto with Broccoli and Leeks, Grilled Tuna with Pineapple-Nectarine Salsa, and Minted Cantaloupe Soup with Fresh Lime prove that healthful food doesn't have to be boring, spartan, or old-fashioned. Here you'll find recipes for the hottest trends in cooking, from wrap sandwiches and pesto to vegetarian entrées
and ethnic cuisines. If you're a chef on the go, you'll appreciate the many recipes that will help you put a meal on the table in a flash--from quick-and-easy offerings and twofer recipes that let you have delicious planned-overs for later in the work week to one-dish meals and microwave recipes. The handy menus will help you mix and match recipes not only for weekday dining but also for the perfect holiday meal, party, or other special occasion. And with the AHA's suggestions, you can turn treasured family favorites into heart-healthy classics.
      
You'll also read the latest on how what you eat can affect your health. In addition to the AHA's dietary guidelines and recommendations, you'll find discussions about the importance of fiber, folic acid, and eating a variety of foods. Each kitchen-tested recipe is accompanied by a complete nutritional breakdown, including total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, calories, fiber, and more, so it's easy to work any of the recipes into any eating plan. The New American Heart Association Cookbook will be the basic cookbook you'll find yourself reaching for again and again.

The American Heart Association is the nation's most-trusted authority on heart-healthy living and diet. Its best-selling library of cookbooks includes:

American Heart Association Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook, Second Edition
