A couple of weeks ago, I received a copy of the WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook, and I haven't seen it since. Joe took it. He's been reading it.
Reading it. From cover to cover, like a magazine or a trashy novel. That's the beauty of this cookbook, Dear Reader.
Part One of the WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook is a primer on heart healthy living. The introduction talks about many different forms of heart disease, in an interesting way, and how to prevent them through diet and exercise. It also talks about how to give any recipe a heart healthy makeover, though it's not about deprivation or cutting foods out of your diet.
The crux of part one is the Top 40 list. Each of the top 40 heart healthy ingredients are introduced and explained (and they will be highlighted in each recipe later on in the book). Joe really enjoyed this part. Wherever he was in the house, he'd yell to me.
Tara? Did you know that garlic is good for lowering cholesterol? But it's best if you eat it raw! I'm going to start crushing one clove of garlic every day into a glass of water and drinking it. The book says it will help my cholesterol. Maybe I can stop taking those pills!
When was the last time your husband tracked you down to say something like that? For me it was, um, well, it never happened before. But it was good. Another day, he yelled (from the upstairs bathroom)
Tara? You know that Women's book? Where is it? I was reading it, and it's gone. I wasn't done with it.
That one really made me laugh, as I had tracked the cookbook down to write my review, but he didn't want to give it up. It really is a nice book.
Part Two of the WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook contains more than 175 delicious-looking recipes that your family will enjoy. They use normal ingredients that you will most likely find at your local grocery store, and they are sure to please all of the members of your household.
