Betty Crocker's Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cooking Today

Betty Crocker's Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cooking Today - Betty Crocker Betty Crocker's Low Fat Low Cholesterol Cookbook
Love discussions on the different types of fat, how to read labels, etc
Tells you how to substitute your favorite with better healthier ingredients. Although this book was written in 1990 I think the charts are a bit off as to the limits of intake as that has changed over the years. What was once a good number for total cholesterol is now considered to be high.
185 recipes from many different categories. Excellent source of exactly what is in each recipe: sodium, fat, sugars, cholesterol, etc.
Love the tips along the way about what can not be substituted. This book tells you that you can have everything you are used to eating, just a smaller amount. This goes against what our nutritionist told us-we no longer eat processed meats especially hot dogs.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
