Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook : Featuring more than 150 tempting recipes
Ranked as the #1 heart hospital in America eleven years running by U.S. News & World Report, Cleveland Clinic is also world-renowned for its life-saving medical breakthroughs, including bypass surgery. The hospital performs more open-heart surgeries and transplants than any other hospital in America. Now, emphasizing prevention, it has teamed with cookbook authors Bonnie Sanders Polin and Frances Towner Giedt to create the most complete and easy-to-follow plan yet for preventing heart disease: Cleveland Clinic Healthy Heart Lifestyle Guide and Cookbook.
Polin and Giedt have developed outstanding recipes that taste too good to be good for you (but are), ranging from Cajun Grilled Shrimp with Fresh Pineapple Salsa to Chipotle Chicken and Corn Tamale Pies, All-American Meatloaf, and even New York-Style Cheesecake. The authors also provide a week's worth of menus for each of three caloric plans to take the guesswork out of eating from morning to night.
With this guide handy, there's no irksome hunt for answers to heart-related diet and fitness questions. Just turn the pages to find:
* How many eggs can be safely consumed per week
* Lists of foods rich in omega-3 oils and tips on avoiding mercury in fish
* Ideas for healthy snacks under 200 calories
* Strategies for eating out
* Why fiber is the key to good nutrition
* How to choose the healthiest protein-and the facts on soy
* The latest findings on alcohol
* How using a pedometer can keep you out of a gym
* How to calculate a healthy body weight
* How to keep kids fit and cope with finicky eating habits
Backed by the reputation of Cleveland Clinic, this all-in-one guide is the easy, enjoyable way for Americans to care for their hearts and live longer, healthier lives.
Though they haven't unearthed any groundbreaking information, the authors-along with experts from the heart hospital the U.S. News & World Report ranks as number one in the U.S.-provide a comprehensive and straightforward heart health manual and recipe collection. The first section is all about lifestyle, covering such topics as risk factors for heart disease, dietary habits and managing stress. Polin and Giedt, specialists at the Cleveland Clinic, provide the recipes, which account for the majority of this volume; they aren't particularly cutting edge, but they're easy and healthy, feature clear nutrition information and generally contain interesting and sometimes intense flavors. Entries such as Grilled Black Sea Bass over Summer Vegetables with Japanese Dressing; Red Snapper Taco with Mango Salsa; Grilled Chicken Breasts with Warm Balsamic Strawberries; Spicy Black Bean Cakes with Cilantro Yogurt could pass muster at most dinner parties. There are even desserts, including a Luscious New York-Style Cheesecake, which is made with low-fat cottage cheese and a sugar substitute, so while it may not taste quite like the real thing, it does give an option for a creamy sweet treat. Tips for stocking a pantry and suggested shortcuts make the idea of heart healthy cooking doable. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
