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. (Jan. 12)

Too many of the ingredients are not available in Canada. Buying food over the internet is risky, so really cannot try a good sampling of the book

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.

I'm astounded! Quite frankly, I never thought I'd be able to really enjoy the meals I made from my numerous low-sodium or otherwise "healthy" cookbooks. They were either tasteless or had plenty of (awful) flavor. No More!
Don Gazzaniga, a heart patient himself, has saved me the frustration I've experienced trying to remake good recipes into healthful ones for my husband with congestive heart failure. I have spent countless hours in the kitchen only to find that my attempt to prepare good food that's good for my husband has failed miserably. Chef Don to the rescue!
While my favorite is the Paella, there are a multitude of good-for-you recipes, gourmet and standard fare, from bread (even with bread machine recipes!) to dessert. Well-categorized and indexed, this has beome my favorite cookbook (and I have quite a few) in a very short time. I only wish there were photos, but that's the only thing I'd change. Each recipe includes the sodium counts for both the whole recipe and also Don's suggested serving sizes. He's also included, of course, other nutritional information per serving as well.
If you are looking for recipes to help protect your heart health, buy this book. If you already have a form of heart disease, buy this book RIGHT NOW. As for author Don Gazzaniga, I can't thank you enough, and I hope you're writing the next cookbook. You're a Godsend!

One of the most difficult diet obstacles is cooking no-salt or low-salt meals. But it can be done, and the dishes can be tasty and delicious. For author Donald A. Gazzaniga, a no-salt diet was literally a matter of life or death. Faced with a heart problem that could necessitate a heart transplant, he was told by his doctors that he had to drastically control the salt in his diet. He did just that and not only has his heart condition improved dramatically to the point he will not need a transplant, he has put his tasty recipes into a book that should be in the library of every cook who is interested in a healthy diet. The hundreds of recipes range from crock-pot stew to ratatouille, from scampi in wine to eggplant relish -- all delicious and with little or no salt. Gazzaniga includes a 28-day menu planning guide which lists each day's salt intake which proves invaluable in keeping a close and accurate eye on salt intake. A definite must-have cookbook.

A great cookbook for anyone!!! Yes, I have high blood pressure & have been diagnosed as 'salt sensitive,' and my husband has had open heart surgery, so we have to be careful, but I have lost 50 pounds without giving up pizza, sticky buns, and chocolate brownies!!! This cookbook enabled me to change my lifestyle without having to redesign my cooking. The recipes in here are easy to make, taste great, and keep you in the mainstream of the food chain even though you are dealing with serious health issues. Don recommends buying a bread machine - who knew store- bought bread had so much sodium!! Anyway, I bought a bread machine , and recipes for the pitas, the breads, the pizza dough - all superb! So many of the heart healthy books do not understand that is not just the fat...many of us have to watch the salt as well. This cookbook guarantees that we do not have to give up the flavor and the fun of food.

I bought this book for my wife who was recently diagnosed with advanced stage CHF.
Before she became ill, she cooked occasionally, with mixed success.
After her dx, we both cooked more often, just omitting the salt from out favorite recipes and struggling to find no-salt/low-sodium products.
Since getting this book, she is actually excited about cooking and enjoying everything she tries. I'm sure that doesn't mean that every recipe in the book is worth it's salt (bad pun) but nothing nasty so far.
As I type this review, she is planning a thanksgiving menu for 15 people. (She will have help preparing it) She has this book in one hand and a highlighter in the other. We have decided to make it heart-friendly. We still have a salt-shaker if any wimps can't handle it.
She also felt very encouraged by the author's personal story as a CHF patient.

CHF patients are not the only ones who will benefit from "The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook." I was diagnosed with Meniere's Diease in January 2002 and told I had to follow a low-salt/sodium diet. After trying, unsuccessfully, on my own, I quickly discovered that just not salting food doesn't work. I ... discovered Mr. Gazzaniga's cookbook. It has been wonderful! I use it like a textbook. I make notes in the borders, put sticky-notes on the "good" pages and even rate each item I try on a 0-5 scale. I've even started branching out on my own and experiementing with different ingredients for Mr. Gazzaniga's recipes.
Not only has following a low salt/sodium diet helped greatly with my Meniere's...I also lost 18 pounds in 4 weeks - without giving up sweets and flavorful food!
