Farm Wife's Recipes Help Lower Cholesterol
When her husband had a stroke 12 years ago, caused in part by his high levels of cholesterol, Barbara Rohr of Dickinson, N. Dak., set out to reduce the fat in her family's favorite recipes.
A few years later, when other members of her family were told to lower cholesterol by doctors, they asked her to pull all her modified recipes together into a book so they could benefit from her experience. The result is "Control Your Cholesterol", a 110-page cookbook containing hundreds of low-fat recipes.
"I experimented with many recipes and we ate many flops. My daughters and sisters all helped in testing recipes and pulling together this book which we think is one of the best sources of healthy, good-tasting cooking available anywhere," says Rohr.
The cookbook includes a guide to cholesterol contents in common foods and every-day tips for keeping fat levels down, such as adding ice cubes to gravy. Fat cools and sticks to the cubes which you can then remove. You can repeat the process until the gravy is virtually fat-free.
Favorite recipes in the book include low-fat `Creamy Potato Salad" (white wine vinegar and milk are the key ingredients), "Cinnamon Rolls" (using margarine and egg whites), "Yokeless Egg Noodles" (made with eggwhites, flour and water), "French Dressing", "Raisen Caramel Pie", "Salmon Loaf", "Potato Dumpling Soup", and many other tasty recipes.
FARM SHOW staff member Lois Cassen tried out the book's low-cholesterol recipe for banana bread containing egg whites, skim milk and margarine. Her family and other FARM SHOW staff members all agreed it was delicious. "Everyone who tried it liked it," says Lois.
The book sells for $7.50, including post-age.
