Low Cholesterol Cookbook – Trout With Herbs And Lemon – Review

Designed for those who are looking to control their cholesterol, the Low Cholesterol Cookbook And Action PlanLow Cholesterol Cookbook - Trout With Herbs And Lemon - Review is a step-by-step guide on how to do just that, including 115 heart-healthy recipes.

Split into two parts, Part One is Going Low Cholesterol. It has three chapters, Cutting Cholesterol, a Five-Step Action Plan for cutting cholesterol, and The Plan.

Cutting Cholesterol covers the basics of understanding and treating cholesterol, like Medications, Healthy Targets, and Healthy Eating. This includes a couple of charts which will help you focus your targets and goals.

Chapter 2 is the Five-Step Action Plan for cutting cholesterol. This includes what you need to Remove from your kitchen, how to Ask For Support, what to Restock in your kitchen, how to Prepare Your Kitchen, how to Meal Plan, Staying Active and Keeping Motivated.

The Plan is described in chapter 3 and includes a Serving Size Guide and a four-week Meal Plan. I liked how the meal plan includes leftovers from previously cooked dinners, which allows you to have a quick meal night without a lot of cooking.

Part Two is the Low-Cholesterol Recipes. Each recipe has labels to point out their various attributes. Labels include:

  • Five Main Ingredients
  • 30 Minutes Or Fewer
  • Budget Saver
  • Dairy Free
  • Low-sodium
  • Nut Free
  • One Pot

The recipes also come with a brief description at the beginning with the Serving Size, Prep Time and Cook Time. Each also indicates the Nutritional Information per serving and many recipes include an Ingredient or Substitution Tip.

The recipes are divided up into eight major categories:

  • Breakfasts And Smoothies
  • Vegetarian And Vegan Mains
  • Poultry Mains
  • Seafood Mains
  • Beef And Pork Mains
  • Vegetables And Sides
  • Desserts
  • Broths, Condiments, And Sauces

Except those at the beginning of the recipe categories, there are no pictures of the recipes throughout the book. This is somewhat disappointing but not unexpected in this kind of book.

At the end of the book, Appendix A covers Tips For Dining Out, Appendix B covers the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15, and there are excellent Measurement Conversion Charts in Appendix C. This is followed by a Resource List and Reference Guide.

There are two indexes at the back of the book, one a Recipe Index by title, and a cross-referencing Index by the main ingredient.

Great For Lowering Your Cholesterol

Overall, this is an excellent resource if you want to lower your cholesterol. The instructions are easy to follow, the meal plan is well laid out, and leaves a lot of room for personalization. The recipes are all something you would eat with or without the added health benefits.

For the included recipe I’ve chosen Trout With Herbs And Lemon. Enjoy!

Trout With Herbs And Lemon

If you find salmon a bit too rich for your taste, you might consider trout. Equally high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acid‘s, trout has a mild, sweet fish taste and less of an “oily“ taste than salmon. Trout can be prepared very simply, as in this quick recipe, with lemon and dill as the major companions. Serve with your favorite vegetables and grain.
