Review Quote*Ron Goor, a biochemist who has coordinated cholesterol programs at the National Institutes of Health and the Heart Institute, recommends a calorie-based diet in which "sat(urated)-fat" calories account for no more than 10% of the total. The sound advice isn't new, and the charts, graphs, study results and warnings will appeal most to those already converted to low-fat, low-cholesterol eating. Others may be intimidated by the book's intensity. Nancy Goor, who has collaborated on children's books with her husband, contributes low "sat-fat" recipes emphasizing fowl, seafood and vegetables. Some recipes have higher sodium levels than seem necessary but, on the whole, these dishes are a welcome addition to the growing body of low-fat, low-cholesterol dishes. Turkey cutlets with artichoke-cream sauce, vegetable souffle with tahini sauce and peanut butter bread will encourage readers to invest energy in healthful cooking. The "quick" designation, although used somewhat freely in describing recipes, does include items such as scallops Caribbean, breaded turkey cutlet and mushroom soup that may help readers to resist high-fat, high-cholesterol fast foods.

She also developed the more than 320 recipes in the books. These are recipes which the Goors, their family, and guests enjoy all the time. Her recipes, such as Cajun Chicken, Chili Non Carne, and Onion Flat Bread, prove resoundingly that low-fat cooking can be delicious, healthy, and can keep you lean forever.
