Heart disease is the largest single cause of premature death in the Western world, yet the risk can be reduced by good eating habits. Paul Gayler has used his culinary skills to prove that healthy eating need not mean boring food. The first part of this book explains what causes heart disease - high cholesterol levels, too much fat and salt, too little fibre - and how to reduce risk. He then discusses how to implement good eating habits with the least disruption, for example, how to feed a family, healthy fast food and eating out. Paul recommends good cooking methods - how to give food flavor without using butter, and how to cook meat with as little fat as possible. Recipes include guiltfree dishes such as "Fettuccine and Mussel Salad", "Red Snapper Fillets with Cucumber and Yoghurt Sauce" and "Peach Crepes with Grand Marnier".
