The Road to a Healthy Heart Runs Through the Kitchenby Joseph C Piscatella
Synopses & Reviews
The bible used by heart patients and recommended by thousands of hospitals, The Road to a Healthy Heart is the cardiac patient's step-by-step guide to cooking and eating in the real world. Born out of Joe Piscatella's own experience of coming back from emergency bypass surgery--and his wife's determination to gather the recipes and prepare the foods that would keep her husband alive--this is a complete 10-years-in-the-making revision of the classic Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook.
With: Silver Dollar Pancakes, Grilled Steak and Onion Salad, Tex-Mex Pizza, Linguine with Clam Sauce, Warm Caramel Pears, and Apple Cranberry Crisp.
The furthest thing from a diet of deprivation, these 300 family-friendly, Mediterranean-style recipes will help you prevent, manage and perhaps even reverse heart disease, lose weight and keep it off, and enjoy the double benefit of good health and good cheer.
Revised edition of the million-copy bestseller. Teaches cardiac patients how to cut the fat, salt and sugar in their dietsband then gives them the simple, healthy, taste-filled recipes
Over 2.5 million people have bought Don’t Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook and other books by Joseph C. Piscatella. Why? Because Piscatella is the layman who knows how to talk compellingly and directly to everyone who has heart disease or a cholesterol problem. He knows what to say, what to do, and how to motivate. And he’s a convincing authority like no other: At the age of 32, Piscatella had to pick himself up from the operating table after emergency bypass surgery and learn to recover his full cardiac health through diet and lifestyle. It is now 28 years later, a milestone Piscatella reached by “walking the talk.”
Now, 10 years in the making and as necessary as ever comes The Road to a Healthy Heart Runs through the Kitchen, a completely revised and updated edition of Don’t Eat Your Heart Out. While keeping the same thrust and plain-speaking tone that’s made the original a bible used and recommended by thousands of hospitals, the new book reflects the very latest scientific recommendations. For the first time, it offers easy-to-follow menus that will start every reader on the road to lifetime health. It directly connects 10 major risk factors to diet; explains misconceptions about fat and carbohydrates, including the unhealthful effects of low-carbohydrate diets; and offers, for everyone’s pleasure, 300 recipes (60% all-new) that are delicious, healthy, easy-to-prepare, completely family friendly—the patient isn’t the only one who should be eating this way—and analyzed for key nutritional information. This is the book that proves that good food and good health can go together.
A revised, updated edition of the bestselling "Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook, The Road to a Healthy Heart Runs Through the Kitchen" uses the same plain-speaking tone as its predecessor while addressing the latest scientific recommendations. Contains 300 recipes, including 60 new ones.
