American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook, 3rd Edition: A Complete Guide to Reducing Sodium and Fat in Your Diet
This revised and expanded third edition of the American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook is an indispensable resource for sodium-watchers.

Lowering Sodium Without Lowering Taste!
By L Smith "acozylover" - May 27, 2006
Most Americans could benefit from lowering the sodium in their diets. Canned foods, processed foods, and fast food all contribute to the high fat, high salt diets that many of us eat. When faced with getting older or health issues, many people turn to their doctors for help with this American epidemic. But why not start now? If you have high blood pressure, are obese, or are just looking to improve your diet, this cookbook is a must for you!
Filled with tons of great recipes (and an additional 50 from the last addition), this book includes categories such as Appetizers & Snacks, Seafood, Meats, Soups, Vegetarian Entrees, and even Desserts. All of the recipes include complete nutrient information and include calories, fat (including saturated, polyunsaturated, and monosaturated), cholesterol, sodium, carbs, protein, calcium, potassium, and dietary exchanges. The only things missing from this addition are a spiral binding (to help it lay flat) and full color photos of... read more
Takes time getting accustomed to!

I have tried a few of the recipes and enjoyed them. My hubby wasn't too thrilled.
I am voluntarily trying to reduce my sodium intake as my blood pressure has steadily crept up over the last few years, as has my weight! It isn't easy for me because I like salty foods but this cookbook has helped and will continue to help.
Tasty quick meals

I bought this book because I wanted to reduce the amount of sodium I was eating. I noticed in some of the other cookbooks I was using the amount of sodium I was taking in was quite high. I almost didn't purchase it because it didn't have any pictures, and I am glad I changed my mind. The recipes I have tried so far have been easy and very tasty. My daughters(6 & 8) ate up the Crustless Garden Quiche, Zesty Oven-Fried Potatoes, Poached Salmon, and Thyme Fish Steaks. All were very quick to make on a weeknight. Also very delicous is the chocolate chip banana bread which we have made together twice. It did not take long to make and they did most of the work the second time.
The appendix also has helpful advice on shopping, cooking , and making substitutions. I look forward to making more recipes fromt this book.
