The Jack Sprat Cookbook

Front Cover
Harper Colophon Books, 1980 - Cooking - 512 pages
Creating meals that tasted good while adhering to a low-cholesterol, low-saturated-fat, medically approved diet for a heart patient inspired a comprehensive collection of recipes, some unique and original, some adapted from traditional fare. The emphasis is on the use of polyunsaturated oils, buttermilk, no eggs, and no cheese (except Sap Sago and cottage). Hints for stocking the larder provide guidance in finding the right groceries. Background information covers the relationship of diet to heart disease. Other topics include menu planning, recipe conversion, reference tables for fat and cholesterol content of foods, definition of terms, and suggestions on cooking methods.
