Another Free Heart-Healthy Cookbook For You

As February is American Heart Month and I have some personal experience with the affects of not taking care of your heart, I promised to share with you some free heart-healthy cookbooks. 

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to download or order your copy of Keep the Beat: Deliciously Healthy Dinners, the cookbook I shared earlier.

But today, I have another free heart-healthy cookbook for you. 

heart-healthy-latino-recipesIt’s called Platillos Latinos: Delicious Heart Healthy Latino Recipes and is another wonderful downloadable (pdf) cookbook from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute. 

Because it’s a Latino recipe cookbook, all the 26 recipes are in both English and Spanish, and includes both little heart-healthy cooking tips and the nutritional information in both English and Spanish.

I’m a California girl living in Texas, so Mexican and Latino recipes are integrated into our dinner menus, and I love the flavors. But I don’t usually like the fat.  This recipe collection gives great little tips on cutting the fat, and includes yummy Latino flavor.

The cookbook includes a total of 26 easy to prepare, heart-healthy Latino recipes such as:

  • Appetizers and Soups, including a lentil soup recipe (lentils are wonderful nutrition and very-budget friendly)
  • Entrees like Latino style Turkey Meatloaf, and Chilian Corn and Meat Pie
  • Vegetarian Recipes like Quinoa and Black Bean Salad, and a veggie warp. (gotta love Quinoa!)
  • Side Dishes and Sauces like fresh salsa and a Argentian Chimichurri sauce, and of course
  • Desserts and beverages – like Flan and a mango shake.

There’s a substitutions page that shows if a recipe calls for a high fat ingredient like cream what to subsitute instead to make it more heart-healthy.

So there you, another free heart-healthy cookbook for you.  I’ve got at least one more to share with you next week, so be sure to come on back and grab that one too.



P.S  Just click the title link to download your copy: Platillos Latinos: Delicious Heart Healthy Latino Recipes (opens in a new window)

P.S. S. It looks like you can also order a printed copy of the cookbook from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute here. But I haven’t tried it out myself, but the option looks like it is there if you prefer a printed copy.
