I’m very surprised that a booklet published in 2008 is still promoting the use of margarine and "light mayonaise". Margarine is known to be less healthy than butter as it is usually made of hydrogenated vegetable oils (extremely unnaturally processed) which contain trans fats = something that your body can’t properly digest and it just makes you gain more weight. Try regular (preferably organic) butter or something like Earth Balance (a healthy non-hydrogenated butter substitute) or an even healthier and delicious oil like coconut oil instead. In terms of the light mayo, i’m not sure how bad that is for you or how they make it "light" but I’m guessing its some intense processing that is probably best avoided. In the potato salad recipe try using mashed avocados instead of mayo - it’s delicious, creamy and contains healthy fats your body needs.
In general i think this guide and others like it should promote less processed foods and more simple, natural ingredients. It would also be nice to see a few vegetarian main courses designed for a later edition of this booklet. Overconsumption of meat is associated with many health problems and it’s something the community should be aware of.
However, i also want to say I think its a great idea to put out a guide like this and I appreciate it being made available, so thanks for that!

why is it there is an african american style and latino style cookbook? do white people not deserve a cookbook as well? Let me guess it’s the other cookbook not labeled with an ethnic designation, because to call it a caucasian cookbook would be discriminatory.

I would love to try some of these during the holidays. It should help my progress continue, even then. Thanks!

you could use the $4.00 for the book to buy some needed fruits and vegs for your heart healthy home cooking

Why are folks complaining about not seeing it on-line? The file opened right away and the recipes are clear, colorful and simple to follow. Love it!

I haven’t cooked all the dishes yet but I downloaded the pamphlet and I like what I see. I am already using some of the modifications that are suggested, but I like the spicing suggestions in some of the recipes.

I downbloaded the pdf version to my cmputer. Loved the low fat version of some favorite recipes, from corn bread to Okra soup.

Although the ignorant below freaked out as soon as they saw the Amazon style webpage, the book is still free to view with adobe acrobat. Click on the picture of the book before posting a lame unfriendly comment

I found all the recipes, all u have to do is click on pdf and it will show as long as u have pdf platform on your computer. I was able to pull the information up without paying a penny for them. Anyway, I found the recipes to be similar to the recipes that I am currently using and some with different ingredients. So, I beileve that they will be very tasty and some I’ve never tried b 4 but my mouth watered reading it. I can hardly wait to try them out. Thanks

I jumped the gun a bit and read the other reviews first without even attempting to download the book myself. You can view and download this as a PDF, I have an many of the receipes shown I am very much impressed with. Again I apologize for my previous review, I am the type of person to admit I was wrong and I can 100% say that I was. I hope everyone that comes to this site checks out the receipes many of them are really good, look almost like a page out of my personal cookbook....Thanks!!!

People, you can download this recipe book for free! It says so right above the image of the book "Download, View or Print the PDF for Free". So no need to gripe about this!

I’ve been tricking my family for 30 years by substituting fat free, light, and 1% items and everyone raves about my meals. If they only knew....
2/15/2010 9:47:27 PM
Very disappointed that access to healthy recipes is very limited compared to previous site.
2/12/2010 10:15:35 AM
Free if you have Acrobat and can open the PDF folder. Option to download Acrobat for free. Worth the effort. Lots of favorite foods here.

just click on ’PDF’ next to ’availabilty’ to download the PDF and print it. Not hard.

tub margarine? seriously?
11/5/2009 12:00:28 PM
I was able to open the PDF without any problems at all. I am going to print out and use IMMEDIATELY. I have been in a "recipe funk" and I am looking forward to trying some of the amazing recipes ASAP. Some of the recipes include: Candied Yams, Classic Mac & Cheese, Spicy Okra, Crispy Oven Fried Chicken, Mouth-Watering Oven-Fried Fish, Peach Cobbler and Mock-Southern Sweet Potato Pie....yum, yum, yum. I am so glad this resource is out there. Move over Emeril.....BAM!

Is very misleading. You think you are going to at least be able to preview. This needs to be corrected or taken off. Is no help.
10/10/2009 4:05:19 PM
I found this easy to use. just click on the pdf file icon and print the recipes you want.
10/9/2009 5:13:31 PM
For the reviewers from last year, all you have to do is click on the right hand side of the page where it says Download, View or Print the PDF for free. Duh!!!

The sequence of the directions in the recipe for Jerk Chicken should start with washing/marinating the chicken breasts before preheating the oven. No reason to start the oven, then read on and discover it’s going to be 6 hours before you cook anything!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash chicken and pat dry.
Combine all ingredients except chicken in large bowl. Rub seasonings over chicken and marinate in refrigerator for 6 hours or longer.

Don’t know what the other reviewers are talking about - the cookbook is available to view and download in PDF format.

you CAN download and review this book by clicking on the download, view or print.

The entire site needs to be revamped. I doubt I’ll want to use it again so the site has a 0 value rating to me.
8/31/2009 8:27:19 AM
I had no problem downloading this to PDF format on my computer. Can’t wait to try the recipes!

We African Americans pay for this service as well as other Americans who pay taxes. Whoever created or approved this web site should be reprimanded for doing such a poor job.
8/3/2009 11:29:36 PM
Dude, click above where it says "PDF", and you can read it.

This guide IS available online. Just click on the "pdf" link and enjoy!
5/28/2009 2:11:31 PM
Interesting recipes, but there’s a mistake on the Jerk Chicken recipe. It tells you to preheat your oven, then marinade the chicken for 6 hours! Hopefully nobody left their oven on for 6 hours while the chicken marinated...

I just received a copy; after reviewing, I will definitely return and provide feedback.

Where are the recipes online? The NATIONAL Heart Lung and Blood Institute wants us to PAY for a heart healthy recipes?!?!? What are you raising money for - aren’t you tax payer funded?

Click the PDF link up in the description (you must have Adobe Reader installed - free at Adobe.com).
5/10/2009 2:51:16 PM
The book has simple, healthy recipes that are easy to follow. I opted for the FREE print option...It’s available - just read.

I hope the previous reviews were before you very prominently had the Download, View or Print the PDF for Free notice above the book. I downloaded it for Free.

Very tasty and easy to make. Just click on the picture of the cookbook for the "free" download!

Worked fine for me.

I looked through the recipes briefly and I’m very excited to use these for healthier cooking for me and my family. Thanks for posting this information.
3/2/2009 5:49:27 PM
You have the start of a good idea out there but nothing to actually sell the idea. Show me a recipe or something!

Adding onions to macaroni and cheese is a definite no.
2/10/2009 4:37:32 PM
Thank you for this cookbook. My husband has hypertension and I am predisposed to diabetes. This cookbook has really been a help in RE-LEARNING to cook. This book should be in EVERY African-American kitchen.
1/6/2009 3:03:28 PM
As an African American, all of the recipes on this site were like staples to me and unfortunately unhealthy. I am able to change that now that I have found this site with almost every single one of the recipes I have cooked for years but now healthier. Thank you...... I am beginning
to feel better already.
11/18/2008 2:24:03 PM
This cookbook should be on school and library bookshelves and out where many people can see and buy it. It’s practical, inexpensive and has tasty recipes that don’t have to take a lot of time.
9/22/2008 3:38:02 PM
very un-user friendly to have this only available through paid orders.
9/2/2008 9:45:50 PM
Why is the Latino recipe book available online but not this one? I am a bit disappointed that at the very least I am not able to review or get an idea of the recipes included. Please correct this.
