Eater's Choice: A Food Lover's Guide to Lower Cholesterol

Ron Goor, a biochemist who has coordinated cholesterol programs at the National Institutes of Health and the Heart Institute, recommends a calorie-based diet in which ""sat(urated)-fat'' calories account for no more than 10% of the total. The sound advice isn't new, and the charts, graphs, study results and warnings will appeal most to those already converted to low-fat, low-cholesterol eating. Others may be intimidated by the book's intensity. Nancy Goor, who has collaborated on children's books with her husband, contributes low ``sat-fat'' recipes emphasizing fowl, seafood and vegetables. Some recipes have higher sodium levels than seem necessary but, on the whole, these dishes are a welcome addition to the growing body of low-fat, low-cholesterol dishes. Turkey cutlets with artichoke-cream sauce, vegetable souffle with tahini sauce and peanut butter bread will encourage readers to invest energy in healthful cooking. The ``quick'' designation, although used somewhat freely in describing recipes, does include items such as scallops Caribbean, breaded turkey cutlet and mushroom soup that may help readers to resist high-fat, high-cholesterol fast foods.
