The Heart Smart Oil-Free Cookbook

Love to eat? Put more thoughts into what you're eating to avoid health problems -- not by meditating over it but to apply a more conscious mindset over what you eat, and what goes into your cooking. Reading quality books helps too, like this one recently published:

"The Heart Smart Oil-Free Cookbook" is the first vegetarian oil free cookbook, which launched on 29th Sept, World Heart Day. It promotes healthy living by providing vegetarian recipes which are oil-free, authored by Mayura Mohta, and George Jacobs, PhD.

This cookbook leads the way. Based on the groundbreaking research of Dr Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr of the world renowned Cleveland Clinic, The Heart Smart Oil Free Cookbook provides tested, detailed recipes by skilled chefs and global nutrition experts. They enable you to eat right for your heart while enjoying a wide range of tasty dishes.

The Heart Smart Oil Free Cookbook includes scientific information on why foods high in oil damage the heart. It is supported by the Singapore Heart Foundation.
