    My husband was diagnosed with high cholesterol and needed an angioplasty and stent. We know what he can't eat (including white bread, white rice, white pasta, butter, very little eggs and cheese, etc.) and the kinds of thing that he can eat. But just knowing what someone can eat does not tell you how to cook nutritious, interesting meals. I have been searching for recipes that meet his needs. Phenomenally, in this day and age, there is practically nothing av ailable. The write up to this book led me to believe it would include the sort of recipes we need. I was pretty unhappy to see that most of the recipes include forbidden foods, including butter, eggs and refined grain. Aside from a few recipes for brown or wild rice and other whole grains, it has been almost useless. Also, the 1,001 title is very misleading! What he does is take a basic recipe, add one or two different ingredients, and call it a whole new recipe. Example: brown rice with chicken broth, or with parsley, or with some other teeny change that should have been just options off the main recipe.

    So many of the recipes in this book call for packaged ranch dressing, onion soup mix, taco seasoning, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, feta cheese, sour cream, bread crumbs, whole eggs, olives, bacon, bottled salad dressing, smoked chicken (where does one even find that?!) and other high sodium/high fat ingredients. The recipe for" "Skillet Nachos" contains ground beef, jarred salsa, black olives, cheddar cheese and sour cream. "veggie Bars" call for a package of Crescent Rolls, sour cream, cream cheese, bottled ranch dressing, black olives, and cheddar cheese. "Cornbead-Topped Bean Casserole" calls for canned pork and beans, packaged taco seasoning mix, a cup of cheddar cheese, and a whole tablespoon of baking powder. These are just a few of the many, many recipes which similarly call for these types of ingredients. I'm not sure how or why these recipes are being called "heart healthy", but I certainly can't use them. "Artichoke Pie" contains 697 mg of sodium, 130 mg of cholesterol, and 8 grams of saturated fat PER SERVING. "Broccoli Wild Rice Casserole" 623 mg sodium per serving......this is over half of my daily allotment of sodium!Some of the nutritional facts are incorrect, stating an unbelievably low sodium/fat/cholesterol count considering what's actually in the recipe. Part of the reason is that the serving sizes listed on some of the recipes is extremely small (not by weight, but by portions, which is another problem). "Spinach Balls", which uses 1 cup of stuffing mix, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 10 oz. of spinach, plus THREE eggs, and butter, has a sodium content of 154 mg, and 44 mg of cholesterol, but that's based on 20 servings.I did see a few recipes I could tweak to make usable, but the majority of them are useless to me. It would have been so much better to have a lesser amount of good recipes than a 1001, the majority of them have nothing to do with the title of the book.I'm really annoyed that I've bought yet another book online that's pretty much useless to me.

    Author needs to remember when making a cookbook cooks are going to need to flip back and forth without losing their places. My KJV Bible has each book and chapter indexed so you can quickly go to Mark ch 15:16. This book has the Chapters of like breakfast indexed but doesn't have recipes indexed so you end up paging and paging it is time consuming tedious and if you're in a hurry or hungry your like forget it!! So your diet goes no where!Also author grouped again Pages of possibly unnecessary terms with metric measurements a very I'm not sure what order he used for index cause all my others used alphabetical I have 2 I think that go group like beef - meatloaf roast etc. but his seemed to flip flop and maybe on paper it is easier to read but in kindle form author needs to think readability Also I tested not all but just a few of the index recipes I finally was able to locate after a good hour of looking in this book. And when I pressed the number not thinking that 1 it wouldn't work and 2 surely it would take me back to here at least since this is indexed. But it didn't take me anywhere close to the recipe. It actually to me to the end of totally different one. And the next one didn't match either But in order for indexing to work and function correctly you have to index both sides. So the index would have the recipe listed with the page number indexed. Then on the recipe. Probably in small print so it isn't as noticeable if you are looking at paper form but something like this it would still have the page for the index page the recipe is listed.

    I've tried many recipes in this cookbook. It's great to have all the nutritional information for each recipe- but be careful! Often times, the recipe seems pretty healthy until you see how many people it serves and thus what the actual serving size is (small!) I've had to improvise many of the recipes because I've felt that the written recipes were too bland. Overall, I give it 4 stars even if I do make changes, because it gives me a good springboard to start cooking a bit more healthy.

    For me, some of the best recipes are the staples. Normal soy sauce has almost 1,000 mg of sodium. The recipe in this cookbook for low sodium soy has only 50+ mg. a few things require a trip to a Whole Foods or other market, but being able to make the foods my family loves, that tastes the same only without the heart troubling ingredients, is worth the trip.

    The recipes are easy to follow and not so many ingredients in them compared to other cookbooks. Plus the recipes give you an idea of how much the calories and those things are in the food you are making.

    A good variety of recipes and we already have some favourites. Try the sundried tomato risotto! there's no cheese, but it's creamy and delicious without dairy! Yum!
