‘In Good Taste: Recipes for Healthy Living’

‘In Good Taste: Recipes for Healthy Living’

People wanting to improve their health through dietary choices and manage their blood cholesterol will benefit from this popular cookbook, compiled by the Jackson Heart Clinic’s Lipid Clinic. Most of the recipes are low in cholesterol, saturated fat, total fat and sugar, said Lipid Clinic director Connie Grantham, and many include nutritional information.
    Grantham hopes the cookbook motivates people to cook at home more often. “We eat out too much and it has certainly affected our health,” she said. “There’s too much salt, fat and sugar in everything you buy at a restaurant. The whole point of the cookbook is that we have to take charge of food and spend a little time planning and preparing meals.”
    Recipes in the cookbook are simple to prepare, call for common ingredients, and reflect current tastes and cooking styles. Included are low-sodium seasoning suggestions, food label definitions and healthy ingredient substitutions.
    The spiral-bound, softcover cookbook may be purchased for $12 at the Jackson Heart Clinic, 970 Lakeland Drive in Jackson. (Sorry, no mail orders). More sample recipes and heart-health information are available at For more information, email Connie Grantham at or call the clinic at 601-982-7850.
