THE NO SALT- LOWEST SODIUM COOKBOOK:
Delicious Recipes to Combat Congestive Heart Failure and Dangerous Hypertension DONALD A. GAZZANIGA. St. Martin's/Thomas Dunne, $24.95 (416p) ISBN 0-312-25252-8

A Valuable No-Salt Diet Cookbook 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.
