Well, if you've read any of my posts, you can see that I'm not the best cook. We've ate out too much, eat way too much high fat and sugar laden food...and I know it's not smart. I know what I've done to my body.
I can honestly say that other than obesity (like that's not enough) I've been blessed to have good results with my bloodwork over the past years. And I've noticed a new trend in doctors...they don't yell anymore about being overweight. I wonder if they just got tired of the same old song and dance... I probably would.
Anyhow, I know something needs to be done, well...started would be a better word. So that's what I'm hoping to do with the cookbook I picked up. Next weeks menu will probably look a little different than the one posted Monday.
I looked online for diets that lower your blood pressure. That's when I found that low sodium dishes are the way to go. So I looked for recipes and I'm so not the kind of person who enjoys weird things or things that take 15 ingredients (14 of them being spices rubbed on meat). I like simple.
So I went to my library (which I love because they don't charge late fees and always have the newest books) online and put the book Low-Sodium Cooking by Dick Logue on order.
I was so pleased when I started looking through it! Sure there are some things that are a little weird (for me), but 85% of the recipes are simple things that I would make for my family. And he gives great tips on choosing foods that have hidden salt. I think any household could benefit from this cookbook just because the recipes are so easy and down to earth.
Anyhow, it works for me and wanted to share.
P.S. I linked the cookbook to Amazon in case you may be interested in purchasing vs borrowing.
