I am so happy to be able to review this wonderful book – WomenHeart’s “All Heart Family Cookbook”. As I get older, I find myself becoming more and more concerned about the health of my family and myself. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer among women in the United States. That is a scary fact, so I am delighted to learn about The Heart Truth Campaign. It is a campaign to raise awareness of heart disease among women and encourage them to make heart healthy food choices every day to take care of their bodies and their families. One of the best things a mom can do for her family is take care of herself. One of the easiest ways to take care of herself is to establish a heart healthy eating routine.
Women Heart, the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, is an organization dedicated to helping all women fight heart disease, including those who are unaware of their risks. They have a support group as well. The Women Heart’s All Heart Family Cookbook is a beautiful hard-cover cookbook that focuses on 40 key foods known to promote heart health, and it features some wonderful recipes.
The first section of the book features information heart conditions, risk factors, and other tips about how to decrease your chances of heart disease. The next section lists 40 foods proven to promote heart health, and an explanation of each. I learned some very valuable information in both of these sections.
The recipes are wonderful! Here is a small sampling of a few that are in the book: Baked Pasta and Spinach, Sesame Salmon with Spicy Cucumber Salad, Spicy Oven-Fried Chicken. For dessert there are yummy recipes for Chocolate Angel Food Cake, Chocolate Berry Crepes, and much, much more! It is not only nice to be able to have healthy selections for all meals, but they offer something for every palate. I tried the Chicken Parmigiana last night – it was so good! What I really found appealing about this book (besides the obvious) is that the recipes are easy to follow, and the use very few ingredients. Most days (especially after a very busy day), I am just not in the mood to make a meal that uses too many ingredients and takes too much time.
I am glad to see a company such as Sara Lee participating in this campaign. Sara Lee Fresh Bakery has heart healthy sandwich recipes in the WomenHeart’s “All Heart Family Cookbook” and they contribute one dollar for every cookbook ordered up to $35,000 to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. How cool is that? Take a look here for some healthy options from Sara Lee.
