The subject of this volume-easy, healthful cooking-may not be original, but the recipes within prove to be surprisingly so. Recipes are divided into four chapters: Seafood, Poultry, Meats and Vegetarian. Luckily, the recipes are
more exciting than the mundane section monikers. Salmon and Snow Peas with Ginger-Lime Rice, Chicken and Mushroom Cacciatore with Gnocchi, Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs and Butternut Squash Risotto with Pistachios are among the tempting entries. Each
recipe is accompanied by nutritional analysis (calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, sugar, and protein), but friendly commentary keeps this volume from feeling too clinical. Food is clearly the focus of the book, but appendices on
Eating for a Healthy Heart, Meal Planning, Shopping and Risk Factors for Heart Disease make this a useful volume for anyone who has to watch their diet and health carefully. (Nov

Juggling work, school, family, and home seems to be the norm in today's hurried world. Many of us often grab a quick bite and keep on moving, sidelining healthful eating habits and nutrition. How wonderful it would be to wind down after a
long, hard day with a wholesome, home-cooked meal. Now, the American Heart Association, America's most trusted authority on heart-healthy living and diet, presents a brand-new cookbook that can help. One-Dish Meals is designed for the millions of
health-conscious Americans who are always on the go.
The more than 200 simple and tasty one-dish recipes offer sensible, convenient alternatives to fatty fast food and high-sodium frozen dinners. The American Heart Association once again proves
that healthful, satisfying meals needn't mean sacrificing great flavors or precious time. Many of these delicious dinners practically cook themselves. And forget about washing a sinkful of dishes, because almost every recipe here cooks in just one pot-so
dinner is easy to make and quick to clean up.
Arranged by category-meat, poultry, seafood, or vegetarian-each recipe includes nutrients essential for heart-healthy living. You'll find everything from weeknight dinners to special-occasion
favorites-from stews, meat loaf, and pot roasts to cassoulets, enchiladas, and even a tagine. All you need is one dish and this cookbook, and in no time at all, you'll have a healthful, home-cooked meal.
