It is widely recognized that coronary heart disease is largely preventable through good diet and a healthy lifestyle. Eating for a healthy heart means reducing saturated fat and cholesterol, and the recipes in this guide have been specially created to provide a range of dishes for everyday eating. There are traditional dishes cooked with less fat, such as Country Pork with Parsley Cobbler, and also lots of new, fresh ideas such as Red Pepper Soup with Lime. In addition to main meal recipes there are suggestions for hot low fat accompaniments, and plenty of pasta and pizza recipes too. To round off, there are quick snacks, puddings and a selection of cakes, breads and biscuits.
