Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one killer in the world, causing 17.3 million deaths each year. It is estimated that around one third of these deaths are due to an unhealthy diet. The key to a heart-friendly diet is plenty of fresh foods: vegetables and salads, fish, fruit, pulses and moderate amounts of lean meat and dairy. With sections on which foods to include in your diet and why, this book employs a holistic lifestyle approach to a healthy diet, including explanations on good and bad fats, and how to make deliciously flavoursome food without relying on saturated fats and too much salt. It discusses how to develop good eating habits in your everyday diet, for example healthy fast food, and how to feed a family. It also includes a helpful section on how to order when eating out.
With 100 recipes divided into sections on breakfast, light meals, main courses, soups, salads, snacks, and desserts, this book will impress your family, friends, and doctor!
