This revised and expanded third edition of the American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook is an indispensable resource for sodium-watchers.
The statistics are in—65 million Americans have high blood pressure, and nearly 5 million suffer from congestive heart failure. Whether you have these health problems now or want to avoid having them in the future, keeping your sodium intake low is one of the best ways to help your heart.
The human body requires sodium to function properly, but if you are like most other Americans, you consume about ten times more than you need. If that’s because you think low-sodium food means low flavor, think again! The American Heart Association shows here that a low-salt diet is not only good for you but delicious, too.

5 Stars Great low salt recipes
My husband is on a low fat/salt diet and these recipes are great for
him. Wish there would be pictures for the recipes, but the recipes
are great anyway. My husband is having leg pain when he eats anything
with salt….these recipes are a life saver for him. Thanks
5 Stars Finally eating the right way
I was just diagnosed with congestive heart failure and cannot have over 2,000 mgs of sodium per day. I spent 2 hours in the grocery store reading lables and what a shock to find out how much sodium I was ingesting in a day. I asked myself what am I going to eat? After recieving this book from Amazon I couldn’t believe all the recipes with low sodium and not just the amount of recipes but recipes that kept the taste. I plan on sticking to this way of eating because I am eating better than I have before and I am losing weight. These recipes are not rocket science, they do not take hours to prepare but are just good foods that are so much more healthier for us even if you don’t have congestive heart failure. Next time you buy groceries check your lables but don’t go into shock. When you decide to start reducing your sodium intake, check this book out. I think it is terrific and wished I had done this so much sooner.
5 Stars AHA Low Salt Cookbook
As a newbie to low sodium diets, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. I found this book extremely helpful. The information it provided about sodium and its relationship to heart disease was very educational. Learning to create and enjoy low sodium meals was invaluable to me and my husband.
5 Stars Easy Recipes, Great Taste
I’ve had to reduce my salt intake to help prevent and control migraines. My husband and I loved to eat at restaurants with great food; we both hate to cook. My new sodium goal was so low, however, we had to re-learn what foods were acceptable. This cookbook has been a huge help! We’ve been using it for about four months now, and we make at least 2-4 new recipes per week. A couple have been a bust, and a few we’ve had to modify to avoid food allergies, but overall these recipes have been delicious, relatively easy to make, and very low in sodium and calories.

I actually haven’t had a chance to try any of the recipes in this book, as I ordered it because my oldest son has CHF. So I have loaned he & his girlfriend the book for now, but I looked through it & it appears to have good information & I’m sure we will be trying out some of the recipes soon.
