Book Description

July 31 2002
Donald Gazzaniga, diagnosed with congestive heart failure, was headed for a heart transplant - the only effective medical treatment. Urged by his doctor to keep his sodium intake "under 1,500-2000 mg. a day," Don headed for the kitchen and went to work. Aware that cutting out table salt is the barest beginning of a true low-sodium diet, Don devised recipes for delicious low-sodium dishes that added up to less than 500 mg. daily, 70% lower than those in other low-sodium cookbooks. The result? Don's name has been removed from the transplant list and his doctors believe that his diet played a significant role.

The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook contains:

* Hundreds of good tasting, easy-to-make recipes
* An introduction by Dr. Sandra Barbour of the Kaiser Permanente Foundation
* Advice on finding low-sodium prepared foods, eating in restaurants, etc.
* Accurate sodium content of every ingredient and of the total servings
* A twenty-eight-day low-sodium menu planner by Dr. Jeannie Gazzaniga, Ph.D., R.D.

This book is for informational purposes only. Readers are advised to consult a physician before making any major change in diet.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Even though it's a cookbook, this work reads like high drama: Gazzaniga suffered from heart failure, a condition that can in some cases necessitate a heart transplant; but because he successfully controlled his salt and sodium intake, he has restored his health. Gazzaniga realized that he'd first have to adapt his tastes and cravings to new flavors and textures. Cream, soy sauce, ketchup and commercial breads were just a few things that had to be eliminated, but as he avers, "All is not lost." Gazzaniga bakes all his own breads with a lowest-sodium baking powder, buys no-salt canned goods from the health-food store and has even found an acceptable no-salt ketchup. It may take some extra planning and shopping, but, he promises, readers will find his wide-ranging recipes (Chicken in Almond Sauce, Scampi in Wine, Snake River Carrot Salad, and Way Good Oatmeal Cookies) more than worth it. With personal flourishes and encouragement and detailed sodium-content information, Gazzaniga dishes up a cookbook that's much more creative and satisfying than its dry, even didactic, title may lead one to believe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not user friendly Nov. 23 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book,although very informative is incredibly complicated when it comes to recipes..one would have to be
A major chef to make a lot of these items. The ingredients and materials needed would be quite prohibited
I was discouraged the further I read.
I then read my second book "500 Low sodium. Recipes:lose the salt not the flavour " which fit the bill perfectly.
I would not recommend the first book to anyone unless you are an excellent chef and can find and buy all the
ingredients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cookbook for low sodium!! Oct. 23 2011
By CynicChick TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have tried quite a few recipes in this book so far. Excellent. I love Maureen's Uniquely American Meatloaf recipe. But like I usually do with recipes I did alter it somewhat. I substituted rice for the bread crumbs and I added grated zucchini to the veggies. Fabulous and moist delicious meatloaf.
The author has obviously put a lot of time, effort, and work into this book and I highly recommend anyone wanting or needing to cook low sodium to buy it. This book is worth every penny!

I liked this book. It helped to cook new recipes with lower sodium. Helpful for people, who were told by the doctor you need to cut the salt intake.
Book was a good starter to my collection.

Format:Paperback
I wasn't doing well with my low salt diet so my doctor sent me to megaheart.com where I found this book. The website was full of info and I clicked through to here. I bought the book six months ago and it's been a wonderful experience. It's great reading but critically helpful. Following the dietary plan in this book has caused me to improve impressively. Great book. Great Website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Saver May 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Best ever. I've bought them all. This is the one. The one that saved my life. Great plan in book and I stuck to it. Doctor can't believe, wife can't believe it, I can't believe. This is the only book in the no salt world that truly seems designed to help. More than a cookbook, it's my lifesaver. And the author has a great website where he actually responds to questions. Thank you for this book.

I have congestive heart failure and must limit my daily sodium intake drastically -- it's a part of life. This book has excellent recipes to help me do just that.
More importantly, the beginning 20 or 30 pages have informaton useful to every heart patient, especially CHFers, not to mention their family members. Pick up a copy and give it a read -- you'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bread April 26 2004
Format:Paperback
I was diagnosed more than a year ago with terminal heart disease. They had me in the transplant line. After a year on this cookbook's meal planning guide and after eating no bread except what I made from this book and the author's baking book...I'm so much better that I'm off the list. I can't thank this publisher and author enough. The breads are stupendous...really, all of them. And the meals, the snacks, everything is top drawer. Only a dummy could mess up these recipes -- and when it comes making my own meals...I'm a dummy. Highly recommend this book.
